Nursery paint colors

Here the middle stripe and curved wall (once blue) have been painted lavender to coordinate with the new bedding.  My client liked the look of the existing room, but didn’t know how to incorporate the color scheme with her new lavender & yellow baby bedding.  My advice: I suggested not painting the room lavender & yellow because it matched the crib sheets.

Committing to such a strong color palette will limit your choices.  What will you do with all the pink goodies that you will receive when everyone finds out you are having a girl? What do you do when your toddler no longer likes lavender? Adding more color in the room not only gives you more design freedom, it also adds visual depth.

Solution: we kept the yellow, green, and brown accent stripe and painted over all the blue with a muted lavender tone.  Next step is to add more pink and green accent colors in the drapery panels and pillows.  So when the room is finished it will have a layered color scheme, each color building on the next.  Instead of an out of the box lavender & yellow room.
