Orange is the New Neutral

How about some word association? I say “gender neutral” you say? Green? Yellow? Wrong.

Welcome to the world of orange nurseries. This fun hue is taking over the baby’s room left and right, and it’s easier to work with than moms may think.

You’ll be surprised when you find how versatile orange can be when paired with your existing nursery furniture. Using a subtle pastel shade of orange on your baby’s wall (think: sherbet) and mixing in some fresh white linens and soft green or blue accents will create a fun, funky look for your little one’s first room. If you’re looking for less “fresh” and more “vibrant,” try a brighter orange accent wall and add in your own flair, like blue baby bedding or a cool rug.

Not feeling the look on your walls? No worries. Try starting off with white or light neutral walls, and work your way into this trend with accents such as bedding, a rocker for mom, or any of your other nursery essentials.
