Children: Haley, 14 months and Cameron, due in June
Inspiration: Haley was born at a time when everything else around us was being painted black. When fixing up her room, I wanted it to be a reflection of good times past and happy times to come... a celebration of new life, love, and a new home.
To do so, I incorporated many pieces of sentimental value to us and hunted down those that added a bright, cheery and warming touch.
Tip for Using Color: Color isn't limited to the walls. Take ordinary pieces and make them pop with a funky coat of acrylic paint (i.e., Haley's pastel pink bench and her lime green mirror.) Take a colorful arrangement of books and add them to a bookshelf to liven up the space or an undoubtedly colorful wardrobe and make a happy feature in the room by hanging it on clothing rack of sorts. Rugs, artwork, painted wooden letters... there are so many ways to bring color into a space!
Colors Used: Lowe's Valspar Passion Pink
