Caleb’s Neutral Nursery: Calming Feel with Pops of Colors


Caleb's neutral nursery has a calming feel with pops of bright colors. Fully functional and decorated with pieces that will easily grow with our little guy- this room is simple, fun, and comfortable!

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for this room was a desire for a neutral setting with bright colors. It was loosely designed around a special print from TheWheatfield shop {etsy}.

Decorating Style

Simple, practical, budget-friendly, and fun!

Project Details

A stenciled wall adds a lot of character and pop for little money! We decided to keep the walls neutral colors- it made the room clean and calming and a perfect backdrop for colorful accessories. We decorated this room on a budget! Painting and repurposing budget-friendly pieces we already had was key. We updated pallets, spice racks, an end table, and an old mirror to bring color into the room! Caleb's nursery is a small room and we wanted to create space where ever we could. Removing the cheap bi-fold door on a small closet makes this small room seem bigger and opens up more storage space. See more details and information on the blog!

Favorite Items

My favorite item in this nursery is the repurposed pallet. My mom and I took a small pallet and turned it into the perfect nursery-sized coat rack! It serves as a shelf for photos and toys, as well as a place to store hats, coates, and toys!


If you love color, but still want a calm neutral- stick with neutral walls and use accessories as the chance to bring color in. This makes the room fun and perfect for a kid, but still functional and one that will seamlessly transition as your child grows! Keep the big pieces {wall colors, furniture} neutral and have fun with the smaller details {prints, frames, bedding}.
