Location: Richmond, CA
Child: Oren, 10 Months
Inspiration: My husband, certainly not the decorator in our family, stumbled upon the 'Links' rug by Not Neutral and fell in love....
Inspiration continued: It became our inspiration for the room. We live in a rental with 'navajo white' walls, so we needed to bring in color in other ways. We made swatch portraits for over the crib, framed frog pictures from a calendar (easily changeable as his interests develop), made curtains, and hung an embroidered ABC picture from my childhood. We also painted a dresser from craigslist in orange and white, and added green bubble glass knobs from Anthropologie. A crazy quilt from my aunt completed the look.
Tip for Using Color: Find one great piece, no matter how large or small, to use as your inspiration and go from there. Also, don't worry if you must have white walls - you can bring in color in lots of other ways.
Colors Used: "Links" rug by Not Neutral in Sable / Ozone / Lotus / Persimmon, "Retro Bubbles" fabric in blue for curtains, Kelly Moore navajo white paint
