Name: Karen
Location: Athens, GA
Child: Daisy, 11 months

Inspiration: Daisy's name was my inspiration. My husband was a bit taken aback when I told him we couldn't pick out a paint color until we had decided on a name. I had different color schemes based on the different names I had chosen. The name Daisy just begged for a bright, lemony yellow with punches of lime green and orange.

Tip for Using Color: If you can't find it make it (or ask someone else to). I had a specific idea of the art I wanted in Daisy's room. Because I made many prints to go in her room, I was able to choose the exact colors I wanted. I hid something about a daisy in each print - a picture, a line from an Emily Dickinson poem, a song lyric. At the time we were keeping Daisy's name a secret from our families, so it was fun for me to drop these little hints in the artwork.

Colors Used: Benjamin Moore Sunshine
