The bedroom below was featured on the Habitually Chic blog in an article about Diane Bergeron, an interior designer and showroom owner in Melbourne, Australia. I absolutely love the unique and adult-like color choice of light turquoise and bright red in her daughter Anna's bedroom. Such an unusual combination that also works well for a gender neutral room. Another interesting feature in this room is that the bed also serves as an enclosed couch. Kids seem to like anything that encloses their beds to make them a "special place".
On the same day House of Turquoise posted a link to the photos featured in the 2009 Georgia Idea House in Southern Living Magazine. I found it interesting that the "Georgian Idea House of the Year" featured the same color combination as seen in the teen room above. The color combination is fresh and new yet works in a traditional home aspect also. The teen room above uses more modern accessories and fabric accents as the traditional bedroom below pairs the color combination with chinoiserie accessories.
I love the silversage turquoise linen chairs with the red and white trim and accent pillow. I would actually like to see one as a glider in a nursery paired with a bedding with a similar turquoise silversage color to the eggshell blue color found in the Palm Beach Crib Bedding Collection by Sterling Anabella.
To me the skirt is a little boring, so I would have a seamstress add the same red trim found on the chairs above to the bottom hem to create a more interesting and color punched skirt. I would also order a second sheet in the silver sage color.
When designing or choosing your crib bedding, you should always remember that the skirt is the item on the crib that stays on the longest. The sheets are always changed out and the bumper is generally taken out of the crib once your child tries to step on it to get out. So use your favorite color or design element on the skirt and work backwards from there.
