The Charley Harper prints were the inspiration for the explosion of color in this room. I loved all the bird prints in the "An Illustrated Life book", but I couldn't pick just 1 or 2, so I went with my 9 favorites paying no attention to a specific color theme.
Colors used in my room
Colors of Walls: Sherwin Williams - Passive Valspar - Rocky Bluffs
Colors in Accessories: Box of Crayons ;-)
Tips for using color successfully
My best tip is to have fun with different hues, but be sure not to overwhelm the space. Do this by keeping either the walls OR the accessories colorful..not both. The "institutional" gray walls don't appear depressing at all thanks to the massive amounts of bold, bright, and happy colors.
