Name: Riley (7)
Location: Saratoga Springs, NY
Color Inspiration: Although my daughter has not reached double digits, she wanted a room where she could make some of the decorating choices. We were not initially on the same page, but through compromise - she wanted pink and dogs and I wanted a space that would fit in with the rest of the house and one she would not out grow in a few years - we were able to create a room we both love. The starting point for the entire project was the curtain fabric.
Tip for Using Color: To make this room light and bright I kept the backgound (i.e. walls, furniture, ceiling) white and added pops of just a few colors. This gives everything in the room a greater importance.
Colors Used: We used four main colors - white, gray, fuscia and a touch of tan.
Thanks for your colorful entry Stacy and good luck!
