Color Inspiration: We wanted a room that would work for a boy or a girl, because we decided to wait to find out the sex of our baby until delivery; we felt like green was gender-neutral enough, and chose a green that was vibrant and fun. The hearts above the crib are from my own nursery and I knew I would be using them in the decor, so they set the mood for a bright, colorful space. The yellow pin-stripe in the wallpaper was inspired by the John Deere tractor quilt that our son got as a gift when he arrived in the NICU, where he stayed for 5 weeks after being born 2 months early.
Tip for Using Color: Even if you have a strong vision of what you want, remain willing to compromise. I knew I wanted a green and white nursery but my husband was concerned all that green would be overwhelming; we compromised by adding the chair rail and using light wallpaper below it. I love the finished look so much more than I would have had we gone with solid green walls, so it worked out wonderfully.
Colors Used: Martha Stewart's Verdant Green in eggshell.
