This is the room that started it all…the love affair with teal and lime. It all started with the Martha Stewart Plumage wall color. Rarely have I ever gone so bold with a wall color. I originally envisioned more of a Tiffany blue for the room, then I saw Plumage and never looked back. It is a great color for a modern boy nursery and I think it can grow with him.
The risk of such a dark wall color, was easier to swallow knowing we would reuse all of our first son’s white nursery furniture from Room & Board Moda Collection. The white was a nice contrast to the dark teal. So, I decided the blue rocker also would need a white slipcover.
For fabrics, I happily discovered a fabric I designed myself at Spoonflower, was a perfect match to the plumage walls. It also had white and introduced a nice chocolate brown. I could have gone either way with the accent colors. For me the aqua color in my fabric design would have been predictable. Instead I found myself drawn to the lime. I tried out a few lime green storage bins in the room. It was a great combination.
If you have been following along, you know I loved the Plumage so much after covering the nursery walls, that we used it in the dining room. As for accent colors in the dining room…the inspiration board calls for a splash of lime, too :)
