Name: Knox (3 weeks)
Location: Raleigh, NC
Color Inspiration: My color inspiration for this space started with the bold pop of yellow I used on the vintage dresser turned changing table. I knew I wanted a more modern feel to the room and was really trying to stay away from primary colors or anything overly theme-y. The gray walls provided the perfect serene backdrop for the other more neutral elements but the yellow dresser really takes center stage and served as the jumping off point for all other accent pieces.
Tip for Using Color: A little goes a long way! I think it's easy to get overly matchy-matchy with things, especially when you've established a color palette and are out shopping. I used a good amount of white and black accents to counterbalance the strength of that yellow and provide the eye with a nice resting place as you look around the room.
Colors Used: Benjamin Moore Silvery Moon on the Walls; Benjamin Moore Bold Yellow on the changing table; Black, white and blue accents
