For most parents, the nursery is the place that will embody their newborn’s personality throughout their first years and they want it to be inspiring, playful, and not look like everyone else’s. While pastel colors, pinks and blue have been safe color palettes in the past, there is a design push for originality and unique nursery ideas.
Recently, black and white have become a popular color palette for the nursery and, surprisingly enough, it can be playful and fun! Look at these inspiring ideas for bringing the dynamic color duo into your child’s nursery.
- Bold contrasts for baby: Aside from the fact that black and white make the perfect contrast in interior design color schemes, they are also the perfect combination for baby’s growing eyes. It has been said that high contrast colors such as black, white, and red are perfect for baby rooms, and bold patterns can help babies distinguish shapes and objects easier. If you prefer the lighter side of black and white, couple them with grays and neutrals to give the room balance and dimension. From bedding and furniture to wall decor and area rugs, there are plenty of options to choose from.

- Pairing black and white with color: If you are not sold on the totally black and white nursery, how about adding a dynamic color to the mix? Turquoise, bright yellow, hot pink, and even tangerine orange can be combined with black and white to act as accents for a shot of color. The beauty of using black and white is that it’s gender neutral, and once paired up with a dynamic color you can instantly add feminine or masculine touches to your baby’s room. Remember, the room can match your design style or can be a dynamic statement for your home. Let the nursery be a new experience for you and your baby.
