One of the most frequent questions that come our way is, "How do I create a color palette for the nursery?". So today, we are showing you how to pick a nursery color palette you'll love.
Creating a color palette is one of the first steps to a well designed nursery. You want the baby's room to have a cohesive look and nailing down a color palette will make your design choices so much easier to make. And, you'll end up saving money by avoiding costly design mistakes as well.
Here's how to create a color palette for the nursery.
STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO CREATING A COLOR PALETTE FOR THE BABY'S ROOM
You probably have this step figured out already. If not, find an inspiration piece that you are drawn to. Something that has captivated your attention and could be the starting off point for your palette. This could be a rug, an artwork or picture you've seen in a magazine. It could also be an image that you've captured that resonates with you.
Once you've gathered your inspiration, it's time to lay out the photos or any other physical representation of the inspiration pieces. Putting them all together will help you visualize your palette.
Take some time to observe the items you've gathered and try to figure out the common themes that run through it. Perhaps, you are noticing that some colors keep on repeating itself. Or, it could be the feeling the collection evokes.
If you are seeing conflict in your collection or some items that distract from the common themes you've identified, edit your collection until you have a cohesive look and feel.
5.PULL OUT THE COLORS
Once you are happy with collection in front of you, it's time to pick 3 or 4 colors from the collection to use in the nursery design.
6.BUILD YOUR MOODBOARD
Build a mood board with nursery furnishings and accessories you love. Use the colors you've identified as well as the collection you previously put together as inspiration.
Using both of them as your guiding light through the design process will allow you to recreate the look and evoke the emotions you were drawn to, when you originally picked your inspiration pieces.
