Name: Tomas (1)
Location: Chicago, IL
Color Inspiration: I wanted a combination of chocolate brown, lime green and gold as the the main colors. However, once we started putting the room together and we kept finding great objects, we kept adding color. There are no color rules in Tomas' room. There are touches of hot pink, orange, purple, cream, red, yellow... also we have a raw concrete wall so we wanted the room to feel warm. Every color is welcomed and because the main colors are still the inspiration, everything else falls into place for his non-traditional nursery.
Tip for Using Color: In my case, I do great when I start with a color foundation and then, start adding pops of color. Not everything has to be the same color or from the same color palette. Just have fun and pick objects that go with each other.
Colors Used: Benjamin Moore dark brown paint, lime green, pops of orange, red and yellow.
Thanks for your colorful entry Diana and good luck!
