The neutral baby nursery is more than just planning for the yet unknown gender or anticipating future multiple use or a background for an undecided color scheme. From sleek contemporary to timeless traditional, a chic baby nursery designed with neutrals has grand appeal. While some feel a neutral palette is just the absence of color, it’s much more…..and it’s anything but boring.
When color is missing, texture and pattern take a bigger role in the design. Texture adds character and surfaces become much more noticeable. Brick walls, embossed rugs, and woven baskets add dimension, especially when contrasted with shimmery metallic and smooth painted finishes.
Large bold patterns can be used without overwhelming the room. Squares, rectangles, diamonds, circles, and stripes can play a bigger part in a neutral room, especially when contrasting finishes are used.
Make Use of Tints and Tones
Just like color, neutrals come in varying tints and tones. From light to dark, cream becomes chocolate and dove becomes charcoal. The best neutral nurseries are a mixture of hues from light to dark. And yes, you can mix grays and beiges in the same room with white being the common connector.
Neutrals are serene, subtle, sophisticated, and elegant but do you know what is the real beauty and intrigue of a neutral nursery? So much can be said with so little.
