One of the many decisions expectant parents face is how to decorate the nursery. Do they go the traditional route and paint blue for a boy and pink for a girl? What if they don’t want either of those? What if they’re waiting to find out the sex? What if they want to stay away from gender stereotypes? So on and so forth.
With some exceptions, I find that the kids’ rooms I’m drawn to usually do not have color on the walls at all, but rather start with a neutral backdrop and bring color in with accessories. In the case of the rooms I’m sharing today, very little color is brought in at all. Everything is kept mostly muted and neutral, and it can be a beautiful effect.
I adore the pop of pink in this flamingo art. Children’s art need not be kiddy!
An almost entirely white room is sweetened with the soft colors of a quilt. This girl’s toy teacups are even muted in color, though undoubtedly they were chosen to style this harmonious photograph for that reason. Isn’t she just adorable in that little hat?
So what do you think? Have I sold you on this neutral backdrop idea for kid’s rooms?
