Caribbean inspiration

This has to be the most aptly named paint ever: Caribbean Holiday (aqua). Paired with Lime Green (Benjamin Moore) and hot pink and red accents this nook has personality. It has all the essentials; storage (under the mattress), shelves for books, toys, etc and a lamp. For older kids who share a room this could be a nice way to give them some privacy. Just double up. I would put the curtain on a rail so it can be closed completely for privacy and to block out the sun for snoozing in on weekends.

This is clipped from the May 2006 Domino Magazine. They advise "For a wee, windowless room like this one, choose paints in pearly or glossy finishes. They reflect light and make even the most minuscule spot feel brighter and more spacious." I agree.
