Ohdeedoh Kids' Color ContestEntry #41: Cassidy: Child of Countless Trees

Tammy Everts

Name: Amy
Location: Providence, RI
Child: Cassidy Lane, due in mid-December

Inspiration: Our original intent was to create a gender neutral room in green, brown, and white. We figured we could accent later with blue for a boy and pink for a girl...

Inspiration continued: We both love the color green and are very nature oriented, although we live in the city. I really love trees and knew I wanted a tree in the room, but I like crisp, clean lines. I saw a similar tree in a Pottery Barn catalog and adapted to be more whimsical. The birds are also a natural element, but the wires suggest a hint of the city.

Tip for Using Color: We love the color match feature at the paint store. Our first purchase was the rug, so we went to the paint store and picked up every shade of green they had. Once we narrowed our selection down, we had it color matched into a no VOC paint.

Colors Used: The color is "Napa Valley" by Glidden, but we had it color matched in a low VOC paint. It's a washable flat.
