Why I chose these colors for the nursery:
Before this room was a nursery, it was a very dark, chocolate brown office. We loved it, the walls seemed to recede but the room had a relaxing, enveloping feeling. When we realized the room would have a new purpose and occupant we decided to keep the wall color. We loved the idea of a creating high contrast space that would be enjoyable for our son to discover as his eyesight developed. It has been amazing to watch him be absorbed by more of his environment each week.
Two Good Color Tips:
Look around. Look at fabric print color combinations, photographs, paintings: anything that uses colors together in a way that you like.
Repeat an accent color in as many places and textures as possible. Don't be too rigid about making an exact color match, more tones of the same color add depth.
