Here, we'll share our go to tips when mixing wood tones in the nursery



MIXING WOODS TONES IN THE NURSERY


1. FIND THE DOMINANT WOOD TONE

First, identify the dominant wood tone in the space you would use to create the baby's nursery. If the room has wood floors or built-ins, that would be the dominant tone in the nursery.

However, if you've got wall to wall carpeting or even if a rug is covering most of the wood floor, the dominant wood tone in the nursery will be the wood tone of the largest piece of wood furniture-the crib or perhaps the dresser.

2.MATCH THE UNDERTONES

To keep the nursery design cohesive, figure out the undertone of the dominant wood tone. Is it warm, cool or neutral? You want to stick to the same tone throughout so your design blends together seamlessly.

3.COMPLEMENT AND CONTRAST THE WOOD TONES

Bringing in contrasting wood tones to the nursery adds visual interest and gives the design dimension. You could choose to go with subtle variations in wood tones or go with high contrast to give the baby's room drama.

4. BALANCE THE WOOD TONES IN THE NURSERY DESIGN

The key to mixing wood tones is making sure you are balancing and repeating the wood tones around the round. Use each wood tone at least twice and place them around the design so it's visually balanced.
