Baby's parents wanted the room to be happy and colorful, without being over the top. They chose the color scheme to bring warmth into the room. The nursery was a labor of love. The parents picked colors from Quiet Nursery's paint line and painted the room from top to bottom themselves. They also lovingly painted the dresser and brought in family heirlooms and hand-me-downs to make the nursery personal.
The inspiration was the wall color. It was the first thing that was decided on and the rest of the room was planned from there. Also, the giraffe stool came in early and other choices were made to match.
Mom is more into subtlety and dad likes big bold colors. The room was a mix and match of both styles.

Pick a color scheme that feels natural to you and go from there. Don't be afraid to do some projects yourself, the result is a room that feels very personal.
