For this month I was inspired by the soothing poetry of Susan Swanson and etched illustrations of Beth Krommes in the Caldecott award winning picture book, “The House in the Night.” Even in the darkness, the light shines through this soothing bedtime story.
In only black, white and yellow, the images are rich and textured. Even though the pages are mostly black, a light glows through it all and there’s nothing to fear in the night.
With Perfect Gray walls, I’ve made the room a bit lighter than the book but used similar dark tones with yellow accents. There’s nothing to fear at bedtime in this glowing modern nursery.
