When I was pregnant with Phoebe and putting together her nursery, I was very conservative. We didn’t paint and I keep everything very neutral, and by neutral, I mean bones, soft browns and whites. There was little or in fact no colour in that room now that I look back.
We only ever planned to stay in this house of ours for a few years, so we have always been apprehensive painting and hanging things from the walls (I married a plasterer, what can I say). But this time around, I’m feeling much braver!
I’m thinking now of yellow and grey throw cushions as well to brighten the nursery even more. I have my eye on a beautiful yellow throw with some words written on it. Thecot quilt that I bought is from Alphabet Monkey on madeit, and I can’t wait til I can’t start moving all the nursery furniture in and start pulling all my ideas together!
My sister says that I’m definitely leaning towards boy colours, and maybe I am. But the fact of the matter is, the quilt is by far my favourite colour at the moment.
So what do you think? What colours would you decorate a new nursery in?
