Name: Jeremiah (3) & Mia (15 months)
Location: San Antonio, TX
Color Inspiration: During my second pregnancy, I was having major trouble committing to a color scheme that was both pleasing and would suit a boy and a girl equally well. Couple that with a gradual loss of income, and this room is what you get. It was when I decided to give up that this space started to speak for itself.
Color Inspiration continued: The deep blue accent wall had been previously painted, by me, while pregnant with my son, and the neutral bedding was purchased not long after. As far as the rest of the room? There's the obvious, a bed, bookshelf , and a crib. This is where things get really crazy... We let the toys do the talking. Any color goes in a room without the boundaries of a color scheme!
Tip for Using Color: I often found myself stressing over color options. Buy things you and your kids love and stop worrying so much about whether or not it "goes". Nine times out of ten, it will... Eventually.
Colors Used: For the blue wall, my pregnant self walked (waddled) up to the wall of paint chips, picked the richest blue that could be seen, and that was that. But a better question might be, what colors haven't been used?
Thanks for your colorful entry Deborah and good luck!
