Picking the paint color for your nursery is as important as everything you put in it! It either adds a pop of color or creates a backdrop for your design masterpiece. Whether it’s the softest shade of pink or the brightest shade of white, you never realize how many variations there are of one color until you are standing in front of the color bar at your local paint shop. All of a sudden, greys can look green, and brown’s can look pink—for the untrained eye, it can be very overwhelming!
We get asked all the time for color recommendations on paint to match our different bedding sets, so I thought I’d share with all of our lovely Project Nursery readers my top picks on the most popular paint colors for the nursery. These colors from Sherwin Williams are my tried-and-true, favorite picks—what you see is what you get! (But remember, colors read differently on computer monitors—so still take the time to see the color card in person!)
If you are having trouble visualizing the color on your walls, Sherwin Williams has the coolest interactive program on their website, where you can easily upload a picture of your room and drop in different color options to see what they might look like! Just for fun, try some crazy color combos—you just might like what you see!
TIP: Looking for a unique custom color? A lot of paint shops will digitize the perfect color match for you. Just bring in a fabric swatch or something with the shade you are looking for, and let their computers do the picking!
Happy painting everyone! And if you have a favorite color that you’d like to share with us, we’d love to hear about it!
