I was just glancing at my folder of nursery images, and I realized that every single room had a neutral colour scheme. I love how serene, soothing, and elegant this look is, for a baby's room. Plus, it can be used for either a boy or a girl. A little colour, especially soft hues, and fun, eye-catching accent pieces add plenty of personality to such spaces.
Speaking of nurseries, we finally hung the lovely bunting from Starlit Nest Gifts on the wall above our son Levi's cot today, since the landlord has given us the go-ahead on hanging things on the walls. It has really changed the look of the room! Levi seems to like it, too. Now we just need to organize some things in the room a bit better, get a proper light fixture, perhaps a paper lantern (there is only a bare bulb in the ceiling fixture right now), and hang some artwork over the dresser/ change table. Then his nursery will finally be complete!
