When you are redecorating your home, especially when it’s a bedroom, there is nothing more important than deciding what color you are going to go with. I know when I did Phoenyx’s nursery just last year, I had to find that exact wall blue that spoke to me before I could move any direction. I was in and out of the stores just about every day, picking up color samples, pasting them around the house..I even let the names of the paints influence my thoughts.
I wanted something perfect….
And trust me, now it’s not nearly as clean as when I took that picture.
You can mentally scatter diapers, clothes, and toys into that beautiful room. Le Sigh.
But once I had that right color, I was able to start mixing and matching pieces that helped me transfer the room in my head to the room in my house, and that was the most important thing.
Planning for the arrival of your little one? Find the nursery paint you and your baby will love with Baby Room Colors from Glidden Paint, as seen in What to Expect When You’re Expecting (only in theaters). For now, you can use the interactive widget the have created to help you find the match for your home based on the questions you answer.
The nursery widget is part of My Colortopia – a destination where people who are easily overwhelmed by interior design decisions and painting can get guidance, advice and inspiration around home décor, design and style
Even though my nursery is done, I took the Glidden Nursery Quiz to see what colors it told me….the first question asked me about music. While I am more of a pop diva in my head, I actually sing nursery lullabies to P …so I hit that one.
And look what came up!
Almost an exact match of what I have in his room, so I would say they are spot on. Of course if you dont like that idea, you can scroll through more questions for more suggestions.
