Analyze your baby's bedding and pull out at least 2 colors you wish to utilize as nursery highlight colors. For example, if your baby bedding is a rustic plaid print, you may detect a deep hunter green shade and some spots of grey in the sheet set. You are able to choose to keep wall space neutral and paint them beige, khaki, or cream; and garnish all of those other nursery in the green and grey tones by offering them in curtains, window blinds, racks, a glider, accent pillows, a changing desk pad cover, or plush throw rug.
If you choose good toned bedding, consider using color blocking to accent and decorate the rest of the baby nursery. Color blocking occurs when contrasting but complementary colors come together. Some unpredicted color combinations that work together when color blocked are tangerine orange and navy blue, aqua blue and yellowish, cherry red and fuchsia, navy blue and pink, mint green and melon, or even lilac and sherbet orange. These color combinations can be cohesively worked into the walls and bedding, or even added as pops of color on the toy or reserve shelf, carpet and curtain combination, or in a wallpaper printing.
Once you select your fantasy baby bedding, look closely at its shade. If it has a warm tone (red, yellow, orange, gold); consider choosing a dark brown crib, changing table, and dresser. If it has a cool tone (blue, purple, green); consider choosing black furniture. If your bedding is more on the pastel part or a classic neutral shade like ivory, beige, stone grey, or even white; you may wish to choose ultra-light furniture decorated white or ivory shades.
