Ezra's Orange Accents

Ezra's Orange Accents

Name: Ezra Raphael
Location: Cranston, Rhode Island

We started with gray walls as the base of the room because I didn't want to use something that would make the already small room with slanted ceilings feel claustrophobic.

After choosing the Land of Nod Full Circle crib bedding I decided to use blue tones in the room as well, and then my mom made a quilt for Ezra featuring Heather Ross's goldfish fabric so I added lots of orange as an accent.

The room grew from there... I just bought stuff as I found it rather than looking specifically for items. We also borrowed things from around the house to add to the room, like the white dresser, silver clock, and book ends. The furniture is on the modern side but I think the addition of the pom poms, Jellycat animals, and other details like the artwork make everything feel warmer.
