Elmo Loves Colors

Elmo loves many things: birthdays, his goldfish Dorothy, sharing a snack with Cookie Monster. Another thing Elmo loves? Colors! The huggable, lovable Elmo Nugget pattern was inspired by the iconic building blocks that children all over the world love to use for imaginative, open-ended play, and we couldn’t resist incorporating fun colors throughout. A young child plays with a toy bus, Elmo and Cookie Monster.

The Elmo Nugget on a white background, with three color dots to consider pairing: Atlantis, Lolly, and Brightside.For those wondering how the poppy red-orange Elmo color compares to other Nuggety colors, it’s more orange hued than our jewel-toned Broadway red, and more vibrant than our earth-toned Rodeo and Redwood. And while Starfish is a true coral, these two colors both share a brightness that brings cheer and fun to any home!

Me Want Cookie Monster Nugget!

One of the benefits to befriending Cookie Monster? He’s always got snacks! The tossed pattern includes a playful layer of colorful sprinkles, overlaid with – what else? – Cookie Monster's favorite scrumptious snack. If you look closely, you may even find a sprinkle on the cookies... om nom nom nom!A kid lies on their side on the Cookie Monster Nugget, grinning broadly at the camera. The background is bright and sprinkle-filled.Warmer tones and neutrals play well with the Cookie Monster Nugget – almost as well as cookies and milk (we had to)! Think Brightside, Starfish, Redwood for warmer tones, and Koala and Harbor for neutrals. Some of our favorite pairings are:

The Cookie Monster Nugget couch with three color dots for recommended color pairings: Sandcastle, Lolly, and Brightside.When it came to creating The Cookie Monster Nugget, we were drawn to one of Sesame Workshop's cooler, lighter blue options. Depending on how you've encountered Cookie in different settings, you may notice a range of Cookie blues — we love the way our microsuede fabric looks in this particular shade of cyan.

Snorkel, our splashy aquamarine, is brighter and more saturated than Cookie Monster’s blue, while Lagoon is a deeper, calmer shade of blue. Check out more Nugget style guides to find inspiration for your perfect color.
