Decorating your baby’s nursery is one of the most fun parts of planning for your little one’s arrival. When it comes to deciding on the perfect palette, keep in mind that pastel colours and neutrals work well with rooms of all shapes and sizes. Pastel colours are calming, versatile and gender neutral - the perfect mix for transition from baby to toddler and beyond. A touch of pastel will bring a sense of freshness and fun to a plain area and will brighten up a space without overpowering the room.
Add a touch of magic to your nursery by using the softest shades of pastel instead of plain white, a shade with a whisper of colour will help create a look that will last. Enhance the space further with a brush of pastel colour to a bookshelf or changing station and finishing touches in the form of carefully chosen accessories to add a personal and unique look.
To add a splash of drama, choose a darker, more saturated shade in the same colour range for an accent wall and create a timeless look that will make the room go from blah to hurrah!
An ombre-effect on walls works beautifully in a nursery and adds a real WOW- factor to the space. Gradually soften and fade the chosen colour as you grow closer to the ceiling.
Gender neutral tones like beige, grey, greige, white or cream create a sense of calm and serenity in the nursery and are the perfect choice to combine with a pastel palette.
A statement wall using a simple mural in pastel shades creates a stunning backdrop and focal point for a trendy fun space and can serve as the inspiration for the entire nursery design.
Be creative and introduce bold patterns either through a few cuddly textures and soft furnishings, something as simple as a cushion or mat will add to the charm. Don’t overlook nursery art, a large colourful painting will make a dramatic statement and complete the look.
