Perhaps Calgary is in a bit of a baby boom, or maybe it’s the location of our store being a fairly new and up and coming area of the city, either way, nursery colours seem to be one of the more prominent parts of my day. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it’s a chance to have a bit of fun and go beyond just the basic neutrals and organic colours often chosen for the main part of the home, but I beg of you, let’s move beyond “baby boy blue” and “baby girl pink”!
If this room was done in complete blue, I think it would appear too “nursery” like, however, adding orange, blue’s oppsing colour on the colour wheel, offsets the softer blues in the fabrics and ceiling.
Soft pink chevron stripes work wonders in this otherwise tealy green space, and the vintage frame collage above the crib is a fun way bring interest to the space.
We’re seeing more and more neutral nurseries done, but with splashes of colour. If you don’t want to just have solid walls, stripes are an easy way to add dimension and with the gray colour used, any accent colour will work, whether it be for a little girl or boy!
Colour doesn’t always have to be on the walls, opt for a soft cream or off-white and let your fabrics do the talking! This room mixes vintage with modern so nicely!
The almost navy walls allow the wall decals to really stand out in this woodsy themed nursery.
I just recently helped a client choose this paper for her daughters room from our Playdate collection from Crown Wallcoverings. The gray backing pops the bright florals so nicely, we chose to pair the wallpaper with Benjamin Moore’s Peach Sorbet 2015-40 for the walls, and Deep Carnation 2086-40 for a couple furniture pieces.
