I can finally share a little behind the scenes sneak peek at how we settled on the colour of paint in the nursery. It was time to step out of the light, white and bright paint box that is seen all over the internet and even here in our home. If you happened to see the nursery mood board post here you would know we decided to go with the Modern Woodland Nursery scheme which meant it was time to have a some fun with a deep dark blue and green colour palette.
I teamed up with Canadian Tire to use their Premier Infinity paint line, as I have used before, and I was just thrilled to work with them again. The Premier Infinity line has amazing coverage, there’s a range of awesome colours and the multitude of tools made the project so easy to complete. I knew that trim work in the nursery was a no brainer because if there is anything that has a huge impact on atmosphere is it the combination of colour, architectural interest and lighting. I also knew that going bold with the trim colour was a must! I selected a number of colours to choose from but ultimately reduced it down to three bold blue choices; Collingwood, Captain’s Quarters and Summit. I had some fun on Instagram by running a short pole; Collingwood vs. Captain’s Quarters and the results were about 50/50. Typically you see board and batten or wainscoting done in white and a bold blue on top (it’s all over Pinterest) but I thought about doing the exact opposite in the nursery to create a cozy cocoon like atmosphere with a touch of masculine moodiness. I am so thrilled with the final look of the dark base (Collingwood) and light white (Arctic White) wall above. I was playing with the idea of adding wallpaper but the swatches I ordered didn’t excite me as much in person as they did online so a wallpaper project will just have to wait for another space and time. Here’s a sneak peak of how I went bold with paint in the nursery and luckily this room gets a lot of natural light so it was the perfect opportunity to just go for it!
I love the way the light hits the blue in this shot!! If I were a paint colour I might just be this one! 🙂
It would be great to hear from you!
