5 Hottest Nursery Colors You’ll See This Year
You’ve been pinning nursery paint colors trying to figure out which hues will look fabulous in baby’s room. But have you thought of these yet? Probably not! These are the hottest colors for baby’s space, from calm and cool to bold and beautiful.
Why we love it: Since radiant orchid was named Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, purple hues have been popping up all over the place — especially as a shade for nursery walls. Purple is vivid and bold but still relaxing enough for a sleep space. Since the color is so stand-out, stick to neutrals in the furniture and accessories.

Why we love it: Mint is perfect for parents who are keeping baby’s gender a surprise, since it works for a boy or a girl. In summer, it’s cool and refreshing and in winter, it’s totally serene. Complement mint with natural beige or white — or go bold with orange or black accents.

Why we love it: If you’re having a boy, you’ve probably considered baby blue, but don’t discount a welcoming navy. It adds a touch of sophistication to baby’s room (so you may not have to repaint as baby grows up) and can lend a clean, nautical vibe. Contrast this blue with metallic gold or yellow accents that really pop.

Why we love it: Rich jewel tones like jade and emerald are a huge style do this year. We first spotted them in fashion, then on baby gear and now, they’re hitting walls in a big way. The shade, since it works for baby boys or girls, is a peppy way to glam up a nursery. It’s high-end and retro. Add lots of funky accessories, like vintage lamps and faux-fur rugs.

Why we love it: Gray has been around as an accent hue for a few years but now we’re starting to see it as the main nursery color. Instead of going for gray-and-pink bedding or gray accent pillows, consider starting with a gray wall. Then, add accessories in just about any color — get creative!
