Blake's Outdoors In
Carrie McBride
Nov 1, 2010

Name: Blake (22 days)
Location: Boulder, CO
Color Inspiration: We wanted to bring our love of the outdoors into our daughter's nursery. We didn't want a traditional baby blue, so we went with a deeper more sophisticated blue for the walls. We found a beautiful soft green grassy rug and re-upholstered a hand-me-down rocker in a fun outdoor-inspired fabric. The tree wall decals really brought the room to life.

Color Inspiration continued: We love bright colors so we accent the room with touches of orange and pink. My mom created the floor pillows and I made the silhouettes of my husband and I on the wall.

Tip for Using Color: Be brave and sit with it before you decide to change it. The rest of our house are shades of gray, so this was a risk, but once we painted it, (and I sat with it in all kinds of light) I loved it. I wanted our daughter to be surrounded by color and life and feel this room does this for her.

Colors Used: Deep blue, a grassy green with orange, hot pink, black and white as accents.

Thanks for your colorful entry Alicia and good luck!
