Before & After: A Nursery Goes from Sleepy to Dreamy
But not all of that energy was reflected in the family’s home. The kids’ playroom needed a serious injection of color, and Palmer’s nursery was majorly yawn-inducing (and not in a cute, Goodnight Moon way). “The nursery was very plain,” Jamie says.
While the nursery needed some personality, it’s not exactly a high-energy room. But we had just the idea for a DIY that would be both calming and appealing: a unique, two-tone brush wall effect starring Behr® Paint Nano White HDC-MD-6 and Behr® Paint Nocturne Blue HDC-CL-28 — a rich and handsome hue. These classic colors added visual interest without going overboard on drama, and the imperfect-on-purpose brushstroke transition on the lower third of the wall kept the effect relaxed and fun. Plus, since BEHR ULTRA™ Interior combines paint, primer, and protectant into one high-quality product, the new look will stay looking new for a long time.
“It’s amazing,” Nick says. “I would’ve never thought to do this, but it was totally cool.”
And Palmer’s into it, too! “When he’s on his changing table, he goes to reach for the wall,” Jamie says. “He’s engaging in it and he sees a difference. That’s really cool for his little mind.” We agree—and we’re not surprised that he already has great taste.
