Gender Neutral Nurseries: Pale pinks, blues, and greens are popular choices when it comes to color selections, but you can easily get locked into boy/girl specific colors. With so many great choices of fabric, wall coverings and paint, colors can take a room to the next level. Like pink? Make it coral with a pop of teal blue. Want a blue hue? Goodbye baby blue, hello navy. Add brighter greens and a pop of orange. Mix in patterns by trying a fun patterned wall covering on one wall and paint the other walls a complementary solid.

Going Beyond Pink and Lavender: Your little girl has grown out of the pink, cutesy animal character print on her bed and now it’s time for an update. Start with a sophisticated, yet sweet, French-style bed in cream or white. When selecting colors for her room, try using a fresh, feminine color palette in soothing teal blues and pale yellow. Select a geometric contemporary wall covering as a focal point for one wall adding interest and complementing, not overwhelming, the overall feel of the room.
For furniture, bedding and decor continue with cream/white, pale teal, soft yellow and add an unexpected pop of black – she’ll love it!

Daybeds can be a great alternative to a standard bed in a boy’s bedroom or girl’s bedroom. This bed style is also great in nurseries as a place for parents to rest and in playrooms for sleepovers, especially when the daybed as a trundle.
Daybeds can float in the room as a centerpiece and make a style statement or can be placed in front of a wall, which gives a casual living room feel and takes up less space in a room. Color flexibility is a great attribute of daybeds as well – there are many wood and metal finish options as well as fabric options for upholstered daybeds – which are so very popular now.
Try a contemporary style daybed, select a neutral base color and add lots of bright or patterned pillows to spice it up. You can change your style anytime by just replacing the bedding, pillows and other accessories.
