Aqua and Coral Nursery {Real Room Spotlight}

I first saw this room on Pinterest a little over a week ago and… I love it!

The soft aqua and coral color palette gives the room a ‘vintage feel’ and I’m immediately transported to a different place and era.

Classic furniture pieces and modern graphic patterns, like the rug and the crib bumper, are perfectly blended together.

Vivi Charles is one lucky girl! And you can read all about this little girl’s pretty nursery on her mommy’s blog, Lay Baby Lay.

Color Trend for 2011

Each year, the color experts at Pantone choose a color that will set trends for the new year.

2010 was all about turquoise. Calm. Serene.

But 2011’s color of the year is… Honeysuckle.

Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it. – Pantone.com

That’s right!

This year we move towards the vibrant, dynamic, brilliant and upbeat Honeysuckle Pink.

While I absolutely adore this color, I know most of you are not going to run off and paint the walls of the nursery in Honeysuckle.

I suggest adding a touch of fun to your decor by incorporating it in smaller items throughout the room like picture frames or a table lamp.

1. Light Years Lamp

2. Ornate Resin Picture Frame

3. Square Rice Paper Lantern

4. Elizabeth Double Roll Wallpaper in Pink/Silver

5. Koko Company Floormat Optic in Pink/Red

6. Boon Pink Flair Pedestal High Chair

7. New Arrivals Curtain Set

8. New Arrivals Crib Bedding Blommin Dahlia

* Budget-Friendly Tip: Update an existing piece of furniture by repainting knobs and drawer pulls in Honeysuckle.
