Design Inspiration: Nursery Design By Color


You are starting to think about how to design your baby nursery, but you are not quite sure where to start. What you most probably do know is what color you envision in the room. Lots of modern designers have chosen to go with mostly neutrals like grey, white, and tan and then gave the room a splash of one bright color. Check out some of these color pop nurseries and get some great inspiration for yours




I love this look! The designer chose to go with furniture and flooring in the grey families to keep the nursery neutral. They added a pop of yellow stripes on the walls for additional interest. Notice how the yellow dust ruffle now stands out and strikes the eye. (Above image)

Here, the designer went the opposite way with the colors. She chose to make the furniture pop against a neutral gray and white striped backdrop. Go with matching creative wall decor like the yellow display frames in this nursery.


Are you bored with pink nurseries for girls but want a real girly color? Coral would be a great option for you! In this room, the designers kept the furniture, curtains, and carpet in the neutral antique silver/tan families. The coral wallpaper gets tied in with the coral accented monogram rug and bumper bows. Notice how the bedding and the rug are mostly white to keep the room feeling fresh and airy.

Coordinate the walk-in closet with neutral carpet and baby pink walls. Add a touch of bright coral to bring in that pop. Double or triple up your hanging rods to maximize space.


When choosing espresso or black furniture, some color is necessary to keep the nursery alive. This designer chose to go with furniture that matched the dark wood floors. By adding one orange stripe between the grey and white stripes, the room takes on a whole new bright look. I love how the lamp, pillow, and mobile ties all the oranges together without ruining the nursery's simplicity.

You can accomplish a great under the sea look with these colors instead of the standard nautical (red and blue) colors. Use a mix of baby blues, oranges, and neutrals. Notice how the glider, carpet, and wall hangings are all neutral colors, so they don't take away from the touch of brightness.


Look at how this room is elegant but not overdone. Again the designers went with the neutral greys and popped in some lavender bedding and furniture accents. The adorable frames displaying baby undershirts look like an expensive wall hanging but are fairly easy to put together yourself.


When making the wall the focal point of the nursery, grey out the furniture and window panels while making your wall stand out with some cool colored design. Tie the color in with a coordinating pillow and light fixture. In this room, the light fixture brings in an additional color. offers many products to meet your needs.
