Design Board: Go Bold, Go Red!

When choosing a color palette for the nursery, many parents lean towards soft pastels or neutral color combinations because it’s comfortable. I completely understand; it’s baby’s first room after all, and the idea of a serene and comforting space seems fitting. On the flip side, it is always fun to design a unique room, so why not set your child’s nursery apart by making a statement with a bold color. One big trend in nursery and children’s room design we are seeing more frequently these days are bold color combos.

Want to create a nursery that says “wow, pop, bam?” Go bold, go red! Here are a few pieces that will kick off your design process in this fiery hue.

    Hi — Love the idea of a bold unusual nursery color! Any tips on how to create a design board? I have lots of ideas and want to be able to organize them like you did but not sure how to go about it. Do I need special software, etc?

    Thanks!!
