Color Inspiration: My color inspiration was the lamp shade from IKEA. I started with that and went from there. I love how it pulls in multiple color arrangements as well as looks like paint splatter. Perfect fit for our little space.

Tip for Using Color: My best advice for color is to create a "mood or inspiration board". Really see how colors work together. A good visual board can save you a lot of frustration down the road. In this particular case, I used Pinterest to gather all of my ideas into one board.

Colors Used: Wall Color Top: Benjamin Moore, Gray Cashmere. Wall Color for Wainscoting: Home Depot Behr, Swiss Coffee. Frames around room: from my home and some new ones from IKEA--black, pink, brown. Floor: we used a linoleum 5 x 7 sheet and painted black and white. Bedding for Guest Beds: gray bedding from IKEA. Furniture--vintage and finds from around house. Beds--built by my husband.

Thanks for your colorful entry Jodi and good luck!
