Color is a tough challenge. So it’s best to pick a basic color and a transitional color that can be changed to another as the child gets older. This will give you the required flexibility to create new color combinations for the future. Greens and pale yellows for example is such a flexible combination. If you prefer a more traditional color scheme then a pale pink combined with cream at first can easily transit into a pink with red/navy or lavender. Similarly, a baby blue combined with white can transit into a blue combined with khaki and brown. In any case, don’t forget to paint the room with eco-friendly, zero VOC, non-toxic, odorless paint. There some quality brands that certify that they are asthma and allergy friendly.
Before you hit the shops though and spend many long hours looking for the right stuff for your bundle of joy, maybe you should take an hour or so and create an inspiration board. It helps to pick a theme you like best. With just a little research on the net you’ll be able to narrow down your shopping list to the items that best fit your theme. Believe me it will save you a lot of running around, not to mention that it also helps you keep track of your expenditure. So, since Pantone’s color of the year is Greenery, and any type of foliage is super trendy I made a sample inspiration board for a child’s bedroom with the jungle as a theme.
