Colors Used:
Ceiling: Ralph Lauren Harbour
Walls: Ralph Lauren Polaris
Dresser (orange): Ralph Lauren Baja Orange

Color Tip:When I go to pick out paint, I usually have a rough idea of what I'm looking for but I always let my gut lead. I usually surprised with at least one of my color choices. When painting, don't let yourself judge the color until you're done with the room. In my experience, the whole is almost always greater than the sum of its parts!
