‘Da boys – prints

Yesterday on facebook, I alluded to the 158,943 prints I had saved for the boys shared room and how to whittle down my choices!

There are some that are a must (the gentleman print) and others that I like but am not 100% sure of.  The room is going to be quite monochromatic so want to add colour on the walls with a few prints.  I’ll also be DIY’ing a few (like the tractor print – we have a 9G tractor on our farm which the boys love so will be using it’s silhouette for something like the print below) as well.

Here are a few of my finds so far…..

Colour Me Happy: Emerald

I know you know, that the Pantone Colour of the Year is Emerald.  I also know you’ve seem heaps of suggestions on how to use it on other blogs (be it fashion, beauty or interiors)!  But how do you use it in a littles room? 

You may have noticed that I haven’t used much of this shade of colour in my previous designs….I guess I’m not much of a green person (mint, yes!) although as any fellow red heads would know it does look stunning on our shade of hair colour!

Anyway, back to using it in the littles rooms.  Use it sparingly, use it in bold dashes and team it with neutrals, timbers and textures.

Over the coming month, I’ll show you how to use all of Pantones Colours for 2013 in littles rooms so stay tuned!
