How To Balance Color and Shapes

We are a bit addicted to stripes and polka dots. Pairing them together in a nursery can be a challenge.

The trick is to balance the proportion of dots and stripes and mimic the shapes throughout the room. Incorporating large fields of white to break up the color and introduce another pattern (like a floral rug) so the room doesn't become too busy.

Inspired by Fun Fetti fabric stickers from Pop & Lolli we designed a nursery that incorporates colorful shapes and textures for your new baby.
