Name:Isabella Bianca, 14-months-oldLocation:Chicago, IllinoisWhy I chose these colors for the nursery:
As I thrived to create an enchanting yet functional environment for a child, I looked into nature and the psychology of colors for inspiration.I used green for its calming refreshing effects, blue to stimulate productivity while still tranquil and small elements in sunny happy yellows for a positive cheerful disposition. These colors have been used repeatedly in the window treatments, furniture, bedding and accessories in way that this colorful and vibrant room still has a cohesive design.
Yellow and blue accents can be found throughout the room and the mural to further stimulate intellectual activity and exploration, while green is remains the predominant color. I have used the primary colors of blue, yellow and red in a few places on the mural as well as the secondary and tertiary ones to teach color creation. The mural features silly animals, birds, trees, grass, flowers and sun – all can be educational as well as cheerful.
I believe that each child deserves a magical childhood full of fun, color and happiness- start with their room décor!
Two Good Color Tips:
1. Don't be afraid of bold colors- just use them strategically and in a cohesive manner.
2. For a child's room, I will recommend using semi-gloss paint so that you can wipe off unexpected 'creations' from the walls more easily.
