Jamie and Nick live with their two sons, Hudson and baby Palmer, in the Orlando, FL, suburb of Winter Park. One of our Coolest Suburbs in America, Winter Park won the couple over with its wonderful school districts, dreamy farmers’ market, and low-key lifestyle. “It’s just a good environment, especially for kids,” says Jamie, who runs the popular lifestyle blog Work Your Closet.

But when it came to their house, especially the boys’ playroom, the vibe was a little too low-key: The walls were a ho-hum white, without much vibrancy to inspire their little imaginations.

Luckily, Jamie is no stranger to a DIY or design challenge. She was game to experiment not only with color but also with shapes. We suggested a geometric design in two vivid BEHR® paint colors: Soft Turquoise P460-3 and Upbeat P300-5. The cheerful hues and unique patterns immediately took the playroom from low-key to high-energy without the effort of a full-on paint job.

A pattern project is an approachable and fun alternative to a standard paint DIY. And with Behr Paint, you know the end result is going to look top-notch. BEHR ULTRA™ Interior is a three-in-one combo of paint, primer, and protectant. The upbeat vibes are here to stay, no matter how wild playtime gets.

“It just made [the room] really bright and fun,” Jamie says of the energy evoked by the geometric design. And based on the boys’ smiles, we think they agree.
