Soothing Nursery Palette

When a dear friend asked me to help her design a nursery palette for her baby shower gift, I jumped at the idea. While my babies are almost as tall as I am now, I have several friends who are preparing to welcome new little ones into their families, and my creative juices are positively sizzling for them.

I mean, babies are great, but an excuse to redecorate a room in your house? Even better! (Just kidding, kids. I love you, not just your cute rooms.)Soothing nursery palette with soft greens, yellow, and gray

The soft greens, gray, and yellow of this palette make me really happy, and I know this is a room I’d enjoy spending time in, even if it’s to change a diaper.

Thank you so much. I guess I should know what brand of paint. We are about to remodel our shared toddler/nursery.

Hi Sandra, those are the computer hex codes for those colors. They don't correspond exactly to any particular brand of paint. I like Valspar or Sherwin Williams, and you should be able to find similar colors by looking at their paint chips in the store.

If I may add a 'dissenting opinion', let me note that some people find the absence of stimulus unsettling and not soothing at all (yep, I'm like that) - IMO you could brighten your palette a bit without sacrificing its soothing qualities.

You're probably not alone in feeling that way Andy! I'll make the next one a little more "interesting" for all the thrill seekers out there.

How nice that the two of you are cooperating, Pamela and Meredith. Love the colours you decided to use for the nursery.

I do love this color combination. I find myself drawn to these color allot. I can see why they are soothing the anyone really.

I agree Susan, there's something very relaxing about the greens and yellows from nature.
