Color For Your Cupcake

This Color Recipe is screaming girls nursery!

I was never a big fan of the pinky pink, bubble gum nursery's.  Don't get me wrong, I love pink but only a select few.

This is a great place for bubble gum color.

A few years ago I had the pleasure to design a nursery for a client who didn't have a budget for her project. She wanted the best of the best, and the most expensive materials. Everything was custom ordered and designed. Well, many hours and $10,000 later (some of the fabric as $325 a yard) a very classy nursery was designed and these were very similar to the colors she wanted. Are they a bit to mature for a baby girl's room - yes, I think so, but nevertheless, it was beautiful!

So here a the colors for a very classy baby girl.

This photo by Pottery Barn shows the wood stain that would look best in this room. If you can get a mahogany wood that would even be better.

Benjamin Moore has a great color selection starting from Georgia Pink 2092-60. Watch your undertones with these pinks - keep them warm and muted and baby soft.
