Now, normally I am a big proponent for children’s rooms that are colorful with a refined palette. You know, whites and other neutrals being predominant with colors brought in with smaller moments. But I forgive this room for using color with broad strokes because it’s so cute! Orange and blue are complimentary colors which means they look fab and dynamic together. Bits of chartreuse with the side table and rug are a super playful addition. The key to the success of this room’s color palette is that while yes, there is a lot of color, there is also a lot of white breaking it all up. Many people might have been tempted to, for example, find bedding that matches the drapery. No, I tell you. Not everything in a room has to have a “partner”, something that “goes with it” color-wise or even stylistically. Don’t limit yourself by thinking this way!
Ah, that is a might easier on the eyes, isn’t it? I support this minimalist all-white look just as much as the first room. It all depends on what feels right to you. Do you want the room to be energizing and exciting? Or soft and soothing? Both are valid endeavors. Remember: the kid’s toys will be plenty colorful to stimulate that little brain; the walls and decor don’t necessarily need to be colorful too!
How about something in between? Mostly neutral but with bits and bobs of color and fun? This is currently my favorite type of color palette for a nursery. The walls would be just as lovely with cream or a light gray. This whole room is just wonderful and you can see it all on designer Morgan Satterfield’s blog!
