paumes books: color inspiration

This week on Babycinno Kids:

Last month I wrote about the Japanese Paumes books.  These books are so inspiring-every page is full of great ideas.  I decided to start a series where I pick an image or room in one of the books and do a project or design a space based on the inspiration.

The inspiration for this month is the awe inspiring home of stylist Susanna Vento featured in Finland children’s spaces.  I love the peachy/pink color scattered in parts of her daughter’s room so much I decided to paint something in my house that color.

I found this great set of wooden mushrooms, primed them, and then mixed two paint colors together; acrylic white and craftsmart’s Neon Orange.

This was such an easy and fun project.  I hope you enjoy!


  1. Aw I love what you did with the peach!!! I’ve been on a painting kick lately toom Michael has these cute cardboard house boxes that I purchased and ended up painting just the rooftops. Fall makes crafting extra fun =)
