Orange in Flight
I was on bed rest and my stomach was the size of a large pumpkin. Laying there I looked out the window a lot and loved the orange hues in the sky right before the sunset. I wanted to portray that time of the day in Jordyn's room. Pumpkin colors with white to off set the orange. Things in flight with a touch of turquoise.
Anything goes, I play with color. Risky and fearless. Playful especially when I'm working on a child's room. I want the rooms to look lived in and be lived in.
Went through 4 shades of orange till I found the hue I was looking for. On the lamp I wanted a pop of orange to add some pizazz to the all white shade. So I found orange ribbon and accented the target lamp shade by gluing the ribbon on the edges. I didn't buy sheet sets I wanted a certain color of pink and turquoise so bought from different vendors based on color. All bed sheets are organic. The letters on the wall are from pottery barn kids and the wall flower stick out the wall held on by a magnet, found those at urban outfitters.
I love the turquoise pillow on the chair which I found at a antique shop in Martinez, CA. I also love the wall decals of the trees and the light touch of blue birds. LOVE the butterfly mobile from pottery barn. I love all the items! I placed the birds everywhere to make them fly around the room.
I'm a frugal bargain shopper. Shop in clearance, discontinued and 2nd hand shops. Project nursery was a great resource so was etsy. Dont be afraid of color. Play with it. I didn't want the whole room in orange so I used one wall as the accent wall. The rest i kept in a neutral tone.
