Nursery Ideas beyond Pink and BlueDebra
Having a baby is many things: wonderful, exciting, overwhelming, joyous and a little scary. One thing it is definitely not is boring, so why should your new little addition’s room be? Forget standard little girl pink or baby boy blue and instead make your nursery stand out with these alternatives.
Whether you have decided to let baby’s gender remain a surprise until the birth or just want to keep the room gender neutral, there are several color choices. Green and yellow is a classic alternative to pink or blue and combining it with a nature theme is a win-win situation. Make sure to keep the hues soft rather than bright to ensure peaceful dreams for your little one. A neutral tan color pallet can also be very classy and adding adventure themed decor will inspire your baby’s imagination for years to come.
Just because you’re having a boy doesn’t mean you have to pick out the blue paint. Go with orange and gray for a classic room with a dash of quirk for your fun loving little guy. Keep the bright orange to a minimum, however, as it is visually stimulating which is something you don’t want during nap time. Turquoise and brown can be very soothing and an interesting twist on a coastal theme which is normally seen in navy and white.
If you want to give your princess a more girly room, Tiffany blue and red is a wonderful combination that is suitable for a baby and also as she grows up. Stick with darker hues of red rather than bright orangey ones to keep it from becoming visually overwhelming. Purple and gray can be incredibly regal or down to earth and fun depending on the decor you go with. But either way your little girl is sure to love it!
