Name: Ford (2)
Location: Dunwoody, GA
Color Inspiration: I was originally going for a calm, soothing, baby-chic nursery but found the curtains at Ikea one day and the room took shape from there. We added the wall library after seeing it featured on ohdeedoh - I love how the books become decor and my son enjoys having his books at hand. We used a staple-gun to place bright colored fabric to the back of our Ikea bookcase to add even more color to the room. It can easily be switched out when we transition to his big-boy room. The room came together over time and we love it!

Tip for Using Color: Don't feel like you have to finish a room at once. Live with it for a while and add layers and colors as you go along. I found the giraffe canvas at a local art fair and love how it fits with his room perfectly. Overall, just have fun with it.

Colors Used: The wall color is Smoke by Benjamin Moore.

Thanks for your colorful entry Maryanne and good luck!
