Don't think of beige as boring — think of it as a blank canvas. Look for geometric rugs in bright colors to punch up your bland carpet. If you can't settle on a hue, designer Holly Marsh suggest to "start with a color or a toy that makes you feel happy. You'd be surprised how far that one element can take you."
Using gray as the main color of this nursery allowed designers at StudioHue to ramp up the furnishings and embellishments in the room. The colorful geometric shapes painted on the wall, the white scalloped mobile and the unusually shaped crib all give the baby's room an air of playfulness and curiosity.
A cool geometric light fixture brings a graphic element to this contemporary yet airy boy's nursery. A striped area rug grounds the room, while an updated damask wallpaper brings a touch of elegance to the room. The streamlined crib features dark wood, adding warmth to the space.
Little ones can sail off to dreamland in this seaworthy nursery built for two. The chalkboard-like wallpaper gives both texture and depth to the room and the vintage suitcases are the perfect substitute for a nightstand without being kitschy. A fanciful star pendant light dangles overhead while a bold, geometric carpet anchors the space.
Geometric shapes mixes with bright shades of pink and orange for a girl's nursery that's fun and eclectic. A crystal chandelier brings an element of glam to the space, while light pink is used on the walls, moldings and dresser to create a more subdued backdrop to the vivid hues.
Geometric patterns in black, gold and gray dominate this nursery for a sophisticated yet playful and trendy look. Soft, plush elements, like the gray velvet rocking chair, white sheepskin rug and white leather stool, create a cozy environment.
StudioHue chose to apply a neutral background color--gray--to this little girl's nursery so that the room could be easily changed as she grows. The designers added highlight colors, shapes and fabrics to add interest, such as the white scalloped mobile over an oval crib, geometric shapes painted on the wall and a soft fur area rug atop the carpet.
Three-dimensional wall art goes a long way if you’re working with lots of blank space, and the plush variety is so fitting for a nursery. To achieve a more playful feel, mount a stuffed animal head above your crib. Thanks to the internet, you can find just about any animal you’d want – from a deer to a flamingo to a unicorn. For a more modern look, mount a plush geometric shape, like the edgy, black-and-white rain cloud here. Or, do both, like designer and stylist Live Loud Girl. You really can’t go wrong when it comes to fun, pillowy wall art.
