Entry #7: Cora's Colorful Abode

Name: Erin
Location: Northern Virginia
Children: Cora, 3-weeks-old

Inspiration: The room faces West and gets a lovely warm glow in the afternoon and as the sun is setting. We decided to make this even more prominent, by choosing a warm yellow, and accenting with red, orange and brown. She was a delivery surprise, so we needed a room that would work for a boy or girl and would grow with them!

Tip for Using Color: Get the right color - even if it means buying numerous tester pots (or quarts) and painting swatches on the wall so you can see what the color looks like in the room, under different lighting conditions.

Colors Used: The yellow paint is Citron in Modern Emulsion, from Farrow and Ball. The dots on the wall are Freckles from Modern Seed. The red bookcase is from Land of Nod (in Tomato) as are the bins.
