Light blue and light pink will always look great in a nursery but don’t be shy to try something new! Time to branch out into warmer nature-inspired tones that bring coziness and comfort to your baby’s special space.


Green paint colors are quickly becoming the new neutral. Adding shades of green in your nursery designs makes you connected to nature-giving a sense of tranquility to your nursery.
