Small Kids, Big Color Entry #5

Name: Lucinda (11 months)
Location: Evanston, IL

Color Inspiration: We wanted a nursery that was feminine without being pink. Once the soft grey blue paint was on the walls, pulling in vibrant orange as a complimentary color seemed natural. The touches of yellow keep it from being too matchy-matchy.

Tip for Using Color: Let the color wheel be your guide! Orange and blue are complimentary colors and make each other appear more vibrant. Don't be a afraid to choose an accent color and really run with it! I worried that we had too much of the same bright orange, but the neutral paint and furniture really ground the space.

Colors Used: Wall paint: Solemn Stone by Freshaire from Home Depot.

Thanks for your colorful entry Helen and good luck!
