It’s a Jungle in this DIYer’s Boy’s Room
A few months ago, a mom came into Santa Barbara Paint Depot and shared with us that she wanted to surprise her son by transforming his room into a jungle theme. He was a reptile lover, and she decided to hang jungle linens on his walls and cover them with pictures and cut outs of reptiles.
She draped lantern lights across the ceiling, added a pop up camouflage tent, and hung stuffed animals from the curtain rods. She tacked his favorite jungle hat and pictures of him with reptiles on the walls for a 3-D effect. A straw-threaded rug centered the room, but she knew she was missing one detail.
She wanted to paint the focal wall a jungle green, but she didn’t know what color green would look best. With so many hues of green, she agonized over which hue would complement the other accessories.
Santa Barbara Paint Depot’s Fernando Jones to the Rescue!
Fernando Prado, co-owner of Santa Barbara Paint Depot and a big kid himself, helped her color coordinate the entire room! He even helped her choose a few sample pots of paint for $6 in a variety of jungle colors so that she and her son could create their own wall of slithering snakes, coursing rapids, and replications of their pet frogs.
For the main color of the wall, BM’s Pale Vista was chosen; accent colors included Million Dollar Red, Cedar Green, and Hawthorne Yellow to match Iggy’s skin.
