When you are expecting a baby in the not too distant future, it’s fair to say that there are a million different things to think about and prepare for in quite a short time! From getting newborn baby clothes to a buggy to nappies and everything in between, there is so much to be done. Some things are best done ahead of time and this includes decorating the nursery. Trust us when we say that once your little one is here, you won’t have a spare second to do anything major, so it’s really worth putting the effort in before the real fun begins!
If you are setting up your nursery, here are five trendy colours in 2021 that you might want to consider for decorating the room.
You will notice that a lot of newborn baby clothes are a wonderful shade of pastel blue. It might be a colour assumed for boys but They might be assumed for boys but light blue colours are proven to have a very soothing effect for both the body and the mind – for all ages. Decorating your baby’s room in this serene colour can help to keep your little one calm.
If you don’t want to go down the traditional route of blue for a boy/pink for a girl colour scheme, then green is one of the best neutrals. Alongside the classic neutrality and timelessness of something like a sage green, pale green shades are also seen as being quite nurturing, and this is a positive vibe to inject into your new baby’s room.
If you think pink is a bit old fashioned but still want to pick a colour that connotes a fairy tale femininity for your future baby girl, then why not opt for a gentle purple instead? Try to avoid picking a purple that is too dramatic, as a darker colour will always make a room feel more imposing. Stick to light purples and soft tones like lilac and pale mauve. These colours will make a pretty room that your child and you will appreciate.
If you want to go for something super-neutral then beige is the answer. Beige can be anything from a soft brown-y cream to a darker taupe. This can be a really sensible choice in a couple of ways. Firstly, it is a completely unobtrusive colour. Anything goes with beige! That means your baby’s bedroom furniture and other decorations can shine, and secondly, it leaves you with a perfect place to start when the time comes for turning the bedroom into something else!
A soothing white colour is ideal for a baby’s room because it means the space will always be nice and light. This is even more important if you don’t have much room to work with, as a soft white will help to give the optical illusion of more space. A classic white also doesn’t run the risk of overstimulating your baby when you want them to wind down for a rest!
Designing your nursery around a soft colour or neutral palette means you won’t have to think about redecorating until the toddler years and you can concentrate on bringing up baby.
