Name: Nicholas
Age: 8
Location: Johnstown, Pennsylvania

Color Inspiration: My goal was to create a room that would be suitable for a little boy. Tired of baby blues and pastels, I wanted to create a room that is bright and energetic yet not too crazy.

Give Ana & Nicholas a THUMBS UP if you think this room belongs in the finals!

Color Inspiration continued: Reading about my son and his personality I discovered that dark blues, orange or yellows, would work the best for him. Luckily, Lowes had the perfect colors already picked for me by the "American Tradition".

The main color orange is so amazing, which looks brighter on the chip than on the walls. My son's room is so pleasant to the eye. When the sun shines in, the room looks as if it was lit on fire and even with no direct sunlight it looks beautifully lit. It was one of these lucky color finds

Tip For Using Color: I discovered that choosing already picked colors from the designers is a safer choice. Brochures that lay next to the display of color chips in Lowes or Home Depot provide enough variety and as I discovered too, look pretty good on the walls.

Colors Used: Main color: Orange Slice
Ceiling: Orange Toffee
Trim: can be any bright white
Accessories: any darker blue or Peek-A-Boo Blue
