Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery, is a crisp and fresh choice for any nursery decor. Noted as being symbolic of new beginnings, it’s a lively hue with the perfect fresh sentiment for your new baby’s space. If you’re feeling the color but aren’t sure how to make it work, start by expanding on the variety of greens to use. From experimenting with the actual trendsetting color, to exploring shades of green for highlighted accents or big, bold statement pieces, here are some great Greenery ideas to kickstart your creativity.
1. A Bright Half-Wall Feature: This nursery packs just the right amount of cheery green punch. Bonus points if your walls have architectural details (or you add some!). By only painting part of the wall, you can break the brightness up so your baby’s nursery can be a colorful but still peaceful place to rest and play. (via Project Nursery)
2. A Cheery Crib: If you love the invigorating idea behind the shade Greenery, but want to explore the color palette a little further, try adding a pop of your favorite green hue to another focal point. A glossy green crib can liven up an otherwise neutral nursery with minimal effort. (via Land of Nod)
3. Place It High and Place It Low: Make your nursery a little green sandwich with a happy light fixture and rug combo in similar shades. It’s an easy style trick for adding color in an unexpected way. But be warned: This floor-to-ceiling style is so cool, you might want to copy it for your room too. (via Little Liberty)
4. It’s All in the Details: If you’re feeling the trend, but have a tendency to change your mind with each Pinterest sesh, consider sticking to changeable green accents. Add vibrant pops of Greenery with your nursery’s artwork, or hang an inspiring mobile with green details above the crib. (via Project Nursery)
5. Bring in the Jungle: One easy way to bring greenery into your baby’s nursery is with actual live greens! From hanging plants to wreaths and potted indoor trees, you can create a chic and natural style that requires zero painting and very little investment. (via Paige Jones)
6. A Dressed-Up Accent: Score serious cool-kid style by punching up the color in a black and white nursery with a vibrant dresser that can double as a changing table too. Even better, it’s an investment that will grow with your baby well past the diaper years. (via Project Nursery)
7. Rock Out in Color: If you’re vibing on jewel tones, try cheering up a moody color scheme with a rich green rocker. It’ll add a royal feel to your little prince or princess’s space. (via The Animal Print Shop)
8. Go All Out: Wrap the entire nursery in the calming and refreshing hue. If you love the idea, but are a little intimidated by so much color, consider breaking it up with fun wall decals, artwork, or your own DIY project you’ve personalized for your little one. (via Apartment Therapy)
