The Ultimate Children's Design Resource

Pick a Color, Any Color

In the past few years, nursery design has greatly expanded from the days of pink or purple for girls and blue or green for boys. Designers and homeowners alike are thinking outside the box, using unique color schemes in their nurseries and children’s rooms. We, of course, think this is a fabulous trend, and thankfully, we have a lot of sources that offer furniture and decor in a wide range of colors, so finding items to fit your “not just pink or blue” color scheme is a lot easier and a lot more fun.

Throw pillows are always an easy and simple way to add color to the nursery. These monogrammed pillows by Luxury Monograms come in a huge range of colors, and the monogram itself can be in any thread color.

We also love to use brightly colored table lamps as an accent in our nursery designs. These table lamps by Worlds Away come in lots of gorgeous, shiny lacquered finishes.

If you’re a little bit more daring, you could take a design risk by using a colored piece of furniture, like this dresser from Spi Baby.

Color is always a risk worth taking, in our opinion.

    These colors are so nice. If only I could get all of these colors without the risk of coming up with an overly decorated, mishmashed, rainbow room.
