My Modern Nursery #109: Citron Nursery Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I was looking for a shade of green from Lullaby Paints for our first nursery board of the spring and from the swatches on their website, Citron jumped out at me. You might be intimidated by this bright, bold green but I did my son’s toddler room with a similar shade so I know from experience that with enough light and white in the room, it’s a very livable and pleasant color!

The only problem I had with Citron was that on different websites, the color looked very different so I wasn’t sure exactly which shade I’d be working with. This can happen a lot when looking at colors on your computer monitor, so before you ever finalize your paint choices, get an actual sample and try it in the space where you’ll be using it. This is the only accurate way to find out how a paint shade will look under the lighting conditions in your home.

My Modern Nursery #95: French Blue Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

For our latest nursery board with Lullaby Paints, I selected French Blue. It’s a beautiful, versatile blue that can be used with many decor styles. French Blue is bright enough to make an impact but not so bold that it’s dark or overwhelming. Obviously, I ignored the “French” part of the name and not surprisingly steered far away from toile patterns. Instead, I used bold, bright, modern colors and shapes.

If you enjoy this scheme, please visit the French Blue Nursery Inspiration Pinterest board for more items to consider. You can complete your own space with additional options from the board.

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!

My Modern Nursery #76: Shared Times Three Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I designed this space for grandma’s house.  She requested taupe, silver and aqua and so that’s where I started.  With five grandchildren in three different families (and I’m sure more eventually), this design maximizes the sleeping combinations for boys and girls of different age ranges in each family and includes a comfy spot for Grandma’s favorite activity– reading bedtime stories.  While that was my aim, this also makes a perfect shared room for three kids.

Oeuf’s Perch Bunk Bed is the most beautiful bunk bed ever, and we already have a Classic Oeuf Crib that they can use.  The paint color is Sheep’s Wool from our sponsor Lullaby Paints.   It’s a warm and cozy neutral that is comfortable for adult guests as well.  The house is in Florida so it needs a ceiling fan, and I added a little sense of place with the Florida map.

1- Sheep’s Wool Wall Paint from Lullaby Paints- $59 a gallon
2- Mali Bedding from John Robshaw
Seaglass Decorative Pillow from John Robshaw- $250
Hammock Decorative Pillow from John Robshaw- $140
Oeuf Perch Bunk Bed in Birch– $1540
Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus – Plush Stuffed Animals (with Voice)– $28
3- Minka Aire F517-WH Concept I 52 in. Indoor Ceiling Fan – White– $275
4- Florida Custom State Map Art Print from TR Prints- $18
Block Printed Art Prints by Katharine Watson- price depends on size
Blue Moon Over Mountains– $109
The Dorm from Ferm Living- $140
5- Oeuf Crib Classic Birch– $940
6- Dream Girl Sheet Set (Aqua)- $59
7- Shala Rug in Marine from Restoration Hardware 8’x10′- $3435
Custom Name Pillow from Feather Hen- $22
Personalized Name Pillow from Feather Hen- $28
8- Rope Hamper from Serena & Lily- $98
Thompson Glider from DwellStudio in Linen Ice Blue- $1165
9- Night Owl Porcelain Lamp from RH baby & child- $60
10- Oeuf Mini Library in Birch– $680
Elephant 7″ & Piggie 5″ Soft Toys– $29

In my Pinterest Board for this space, I included several furniture and art options that could be considered as alternatives.  For example, a twin sleeper chair could add one more bed to the room without taking up too much additional space when it’s not needed.

Thanks to Lullaby Paints for sponsoring this post.  I’m excited to be working with them on this series of nursery inspiration boards featuring their premium paints.  Lullaby Paints are are safe for both newborns and pregnant moms so they’re perfect for your eco-friendly modern nursery.
