Boys Bedroom

Color blocking is an easy way to pull in some extra color and emphasize a simple black and white photo. We painted a large block of pumpkin orange to spruce up this bedroom.

The Shabby Nest
Try Valspar's Indigo Streamer for the panelling color, and Hush Hush for the wall color.

The Shabby Nest
This tractor bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids but it is from a previous season and not currently available from PB Kids. You can find it online at ebay and other such sites.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Clever New Uses for the Picture Frame
Add interest to a typically framed photograph with another frame via color-block. On the white wall, this piece would have been lost; against the orange, it pops. This is also inexpensive!
Shawn Gauthier added this to Orange: Still Hot, Hot, Hot
Instead of painting the entire wall, paint an orange square to act as an accent for artwork or photography.
