pink & lemon.

ahhhhh, i know i play favorites a lot, but i really love this room.

as i said yesterday, i created this stencil by hand, based on the size of the room, and at the request of my client. she found a photo for me to go from, and i took it from there. both yellows are custom-matched benjamin moore colors (have you guys used their new "natura" paint? it's no VOC and works perfectly. there is literally no smell when you paint, at all. amazing! i'm a new convert.)

her bedding is serena & lily, and the rug is madeline weinrib. the lines of that rug are amazing...so many different shapes and patterns, depending on how you look at it. perfection!

we initially decided to not do the little hallway, because we weren't sure that it would look right, but after finishing it, my client decided she liked the pattern so much, she needed more of it. woo hoo! i will be going back next week to do the little hallway...

i just love the combination of morrocan-inspired patterns with viney florals in this serena & lily bedding collection on the crib. i think it's a perfect balance of whimsy and eclecticism, without being too bold. so pretty!

i could really see this stencil being used in a variety of color combinations...it'd be so pretty as a subtle metallic, or in a bold black-and-white. email me at kristen.fountain@gmail.com, if you live in or around atlanta, georgia and are interested in painting!

  7. When I saw the stencil, I knew it would be beautiful, but this is even better than I expected! The two shades of yellow are beautiful, and I LOVE Moroccan inspired patterns. Great job! This is honestly among my favorite nurseries!

  9. Love the bright color combination of pink and lemon, perfect for a baby room. That pink area rug brings so much character to that room, and loved the natural light in the room. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Ooh, so sweet! I love it! The combo of the stenciled wall and patterned rug is just perfect! I've made stencils a few times and just hate it. Too much math for my brain. :)

  14. So pretty! Love the pink & yellow. And I like how the room isn't so "babyish."
    One day, when Adam and I live in a nicer place and have way more room, I'm probably going to get you to do my entire house. Just putting that out there!
