When I started envisioning the nursery I had lots of thoughts swirling around in my mind. A little before Thanksgiving, I think, I settled on what I thought would be the color scheme but waited to see if it "stuck". It has and last night I created this inspiration board to have a visual for some of what is in my mind.
I want to use a lot of white to create a calming, peaceful, fresh, pure environment
but I also don't want it to look sterile or "untouchable".
I want to use just the briefest accents of bright colors to warm it up and make it happy and whimsical. I'm thinking apple green
sunshine yellow, orange, turquoise, a little bit of red and if it's a girl, a little hot pink and light pink.
Just right for a springtime arrival I think.
I'd love to know which picture is your favorite.
