Design Tip: When working an accent color into your nursery, remember the “rule of three” and add at least three touches of the shade throughout the room to make it look purposeful, but you don’t need much more than that to make an impact. Note how these modern and chic nurseries follow this rule to seamlessly incorporate green into their designs.
