Entry #18: Maya's Modern Nature

Alejandra Valera

Name: Bryony
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Children: Maya Belle, 18 months

Inspiration: A modern take on nature's earth tones, as admired by two graphic designers who balked at the idea of a traditional nursery. With a different color in each room of the house, Maya's room is a small and simple space that brings in colors from other rooms--sand, green, brown.

Inspiration continued:
With great storage we were able to keep the lines simple and uninterrupted by clothes and toys which are readily available for use by little hands.

Tip for Using Color: Keep it simple, focusing on two or three main colors but allow secondary elements to bring in an eclectic mix.

Colors Used: Behr - My chips are currently in storage, but I think it was something like this: 205B-7, crushed orange 740C-1, seaside sand
