Name: Norah (1)
Color Inspiration: I knew I wanted bright colors for Norah's nursery. I love Robin's Egg blue, so I knew the walls had to be blue. Once I decided to paint the crib yellow, there was no turning back. I also found some great pillows from Pier One that gave me a lot of colors to work with.
Tip for Using Color: My favorite tip for using color is to find a fabric swatch, whether it be actual fabric, a pillow, curtains, whatever. Find a great piece of fabric with great colors, that way you can see them all together and know whether or not you like them together.
