Name: Rachel
Location: Oklahoma City
Children: Jude, 1 year old

Inspiration: When my husband and I were dating, we had visited Disneyland together. I'm a graphic designer, and I fell in love with the vintage artwork featured throughout the park, the Matterhorn bobsleds poster in particular...

Inspiration Continued For my birthday, he bought one for me and had it framed. While I'm not into "character"-themed rooms in any way, I really loved the styling of this particular image and just knew that we'd use it in our kids' room(s) someday. Thus, the inspiration!

Tip for Using Color: Like many others have said, you just can't be afraid of color. But on the other end of the spectrum, I appreciate it when kids' rooms can be integrated into the rest of the house. It's always jarring to walk into a child's room and it's obnoxiously bright and different from the rest of the house.

Color Used: Martha Stewart for Lowe's: Jasperware
