My Modern Nursery #89: Morning Sunrise Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I cringe when people act like green and yellow are the only two gender neutral nursery options. I think that a majority of our nursery boards are gender neutral, but I’ve really found people who think that if they’re not going with pink or blue, their only wall color choices are yellow or green.

I work with shades of green from time to time, but I generally stay away from yellow. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with it, I just had an overdose of yellow a few years back. We moved into this house when I was 6 months pregnant. It was clean and move-in ready, but all the walls throughout (minus the bedrooms and bathrooms) were painted a sunny yellow. It was a bright shade that made it look like the morning sun was shining right in, even on a cloudy day, but it was impossible to decorate around. After about a year we were able to paint it all away and I’ve shied away from yellow walls since.

Despite my color overdose, yellow is a great color if you choose it. Morning Sunrise from Lullaby Paints is a nice soft, buttery shade that is a beautiful backdrop for this fresh nursery.

If you’re going to go with this scheme and need more pieces and options to fill the space, there are lots more perfect choices on our Pinterest board!

Interactive Playsets from Corby Tindersticks

I take pride in being familiar with the products in most nurseries and being able to find them quickly online, but I admit that I had trouble finding the items on Gabriel’s rug

Gabriel's Rug

I recognized the doll as being from Corby Tindersticks and assumed the orange pieces were as well, but couldn’t find them anywhere… until today! I happened to be browsing Milk Moostache, of one of our lovely advertisers, and BAM! There it was!

It’s the Interactive Road Atlas from Corby Tindersticks! $60

And if this cute little set isn’t enough, how about the Interactive World Weather Map?

Sorry if we’re on such a streak of big kid rooms, but where they’re this fabulous, whether there’s a bed or a crib, it’s great inspiration. SISSY + MARLEY have the black and white big kid room down to perfection.

I always love the wall libraries in the SISSY + MARLEY spaces. It’s wonderful when the books function as art.

But the black and white art wall is perfect as well.
