Deciding what color of paint to use when decorating the nursery can be challenging. You want it to be soothing enough but also be somewhat of a stimulant for your new baby. If you feel completely overwhelmed, here are some tips for deciding on what color to use:

  • Check out other nurseries for inspiration, whether it be in magazines or online, like here on CafeMom (how cute is moniyeager's nursery?!).
  • Think about your personal preferences. Look around your home...do you have a tendancy to lean towards greens? Then a soothing sage might be a good choice.
  • Take the size of the room into account. The color that's on the walls can make a room look larger or smaller.
  • Do you have a theme? Take the colors the theme lends itself to into account.
