Phoenix's 'Perfect Green' Room

My Room

Name: Phoenix (2)
Location: United States

I think the hardest part for me when designing this room was choosing the color. I seriously went through about eight test pots of paint and a million swatches. I wanted the perfect green color - not too grass, not too neon, not too turquoise. Paint is so hard, am I right?

When I stumbled across Ionion from Sherwin Williams I had a feeling it was going to be a good color for us; it's a very dark pastel, so it still feels bright and not dark at all. We wanted his room to feel fun and playful, but not too baby-ish. Phoenix loves his room, now if we could only get him to sleep in that big boy bed!
