As the world celebrates the arrival of the royal princess today, experts from My Colortopia are sharing some tips on how to give any child’s nursery the royal treatment:
A great way to add a “Royal” touch to a baby’s room and continues as a strong trend in décor is the use of metallics.
- Pairing coral or pink with gold accents adding sparkly touches bring an element of surprise and delight to your baby’s space.
- Should you want to use gold as a wall color, Warm Gold represents the trend making a nice feature wall.
- Gold metallics are great in several places in the room, not just the walls, like furniture or fabrics.
“Royal Navy” can be used in combination with any color in the palette, and adds a sense of luxury and depth, allowing the room to grow with your little one.
- Using more sophisticated colors in a nursery can allow for easy updates for your baby’s years to come.
- Using framed artwork and pictures is fun project and a great look with this sophisticated color palette. It provides “art gallery” look with the frames while bringing in more whimsical baby and children related images like nursery rhymes, toys, cartoons, etc.
Colors that reflects nature are always in season, creating a soft and warm feeling in your little one’s room.
- Pastels in bright hues are also popular right now, including pinks, corals, aqua and mint greens. These can be incorporated in fun patterns and geometric shapes on feature walls, or even in textured fabrics.
- Neutrals are a big trend in capturing this nature element. You will see them often paired with soft pastels and even some textured items like different woods.
Neutrals paired with other colors continues to create a great room for your little one. But neutrals are not just the white or off-white you think about when thinking neutral.
- Grey is wonderful neutral that looks great paired with many colors. Purples and Greys are a great combination, using soft shades of these can be perfect for a nursery.
- A more neutral palette is less about the standard pink and blue, more about the Grey and Charcoals or Beige and Browns that work easily as you want to welcome your baby by using accessories, bedding and changing up the fabrics.
- You can add whimsy with neutrals by considering painting patterns and shapes. Neutrals by no means needs to be dull.
