Choosing Colors for Your Baby's Nursery
Probably one of the first considerations when planning your little one’s nursery is color. One of my favorite "go to" sites for color advice is Design Seeds, created by designer Jessica Colaluca.
Jessica has over 16 years of experience and has worked at companies like Ford, Reebok and Timberland. Her extensive experience with trends, brands, color and materials add to her unique approach to color and design for any room in your home.
We feature many of her color pallets on our Color Pallets board on Pinterest, where we have also collected lots of other great ideas, images of products and room designs to inspire you. A couple of my personal favorites are included here, but there are lots more!
According to Jessica, the current trend is bright colors. Go to Design Seeds to search for ideas by theme or color value and sign up for her blog. Whatever colors you choose, the objective is to have fun with them and enjoy the experience of decorating your new nursery or “Big Boy/Girl” room.
Once you've chosen your color palette, it's time to start planning out your room. We can help with that. Just go to BabyProductExperts.com and look for the Nursery Planner tab at the top of any page. It's free and a great way to "try before you buy" your nursery furniture.
Save time by taking your room measurements first - including placement of doors, windows and closets. After you're finished, save your floor plan and print it out, and we'll send you a $10 coupon to use toward the purchase of your nursery furniture or accessories.
Don't forget to take your printout and coupon to the Baby Product Experts certified store near you. These stores have experts on staff who will be happy to help you make your dream nursery a reality!
