Analyze your baby's bedding and grab at least 2 colors you wish to utilize as nursery accent colors. For instance, if your baby bedding is a rustic plaid print, you may detect a deep hunter green tone and some spots of gray in the sheet collection. 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 gray tones by offering them in curtains, window blinds, cabinets, a glider, accent pillows, a changing table pad cover, or plush toss rug.
If you choose solid 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 unexpected color combinations that interact when color blocked are tangerine orange and navy blue, aqua blue and yellowish, cherry red and fuchsia, dark 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 a toy or reserve shelf, carpet and curtain combination, or in a wallpaper printing.
Once you select your fantasy baby bedding, look closely at its tone. If it has a warm shade (red, yellow, orange, platinum); consider choosing a brownish crib, changing table, and dresser. If it has a cool tone (blue, purple, green); consider choosing black furniture. In case your bedding is more on the pastel side or a vintage neutral firmness like ivory, beige, stone grey, or even white; you may desire to choose ultra-light furniture coated white or ivory shades.
