Color Inspiration: I decided I didn't want the nursery to be too girly. I just wanted it to feel cheerful, warm, inviting, and fun. During my pregnancy, a friend gave me a gift from Mama Mio that had blue packaging that I loved. I matched up the color to a swatch at the paint store and I had the wall color! I chose yellow as an accent when we found out we were having a girl. I was going to do rust orange if the baby were a boy. I felt yellow would be fun and easy to find accessories with.
Tip for Using Color: My tip would be to let one color be a backdrop hero while another color does the "pop." Sort of a "Batman and Robin" thing where there's a hero behind a hero. Choose just a scant few colors that match your backdrop hero and also go pretty well together too. 3 or 4 would be more than enough. Going too crazy with color can create chaos for the eyes and who wants that? (How's THAT for alliteration?)
Colors Used: Wall paint is Benjamin Moore #618 Robin's Nest. The yellow is just a basic sunshine yellow. There are hints of rust orange, magenta and green as well.
Thanks for your colorful entry Megan and good luck!
