My Modern Nursery #118: Green Gone Wild Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

We’ve had a great time this month exploring how to use Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 in the modern nursery so of course I had to try Greenery out as a wall color in preparation for the new year. I look forward to adding a lot more green into my own home this coming year and so far I’m off to a great start with new house plants!

Lullaby Paints has a custom wall color option that allows you to specify any paint shade while still enjoying non-toxic Lullaby Paints and avoiding dangerous chemicals, so it’s easy to match any Pantone shade. This year however, I found that Lullaby Paint’s Green Gone Wild was remarkably close to “Greenery”– so close that I’ve found representations of Greenery” that are further off from each other than from the shade I’ve chosen below.

Do not be scared to try a rich green shade on the walls.  I’ve had a bright green room for one of my kids and loved it the entire 7 years we lived in the house. If such a saturated color seems overwhelming, try painting just one accent wall. Remember that kids will outgrow the nursery after just a few short years so it’s a great place to have a lot more fun with the decorating! You can always change things up as the kids get older.

Greenery: Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017

I’ve been waiting all month for Pantone to announce their Color of the Year for 2017 and finally this morning they shared that Greenery is the tone to look for in the upcoming year. I’m so excited for this bright and hopeful shade of green to inspire the next 12 months!

As they describe it, Greenery is:

“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”

I’ve found a few fun ways to start incorporating Greenery into your life.

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 #97: Hidden Path Green Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I always like using green for a nursery. It’s one of the most popular gender neutral choices and there are so many beautiful shades to choose from. Shades of green can be paired with any color, but unless you’re decorating for Christmas, you might want to avoid red. Hidden Path is a medium shade of green with plenty of gray in it. It’s a relaxing, modern shade that’s welcome for spring and will stay cool and fresh all summer long.

Starting with Ferm Living’s Robot Bedding, we repeated the robotic theme without going overboard with it. If you like the robots, we have lots more options in the Hidden Path Nursery Inspiration board on Pinterest.

My Modern Nursery #90: Dreamy Dark Purple Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

Lullaby Paints collaborates with so many great brands to create special color collections. When I found out they had a selection of paints for Finn + Emma, I had to have a go with one of the beautiful shades. Skipping over my obvious favorites, Light Grey and Clearly Aqua, I opted for the more daring but aptly named, Dark Purple. While it’s a deep color, there’s a lot of gray in Dark Purple, giving it a wonderful, dusty, neutral look. It’s meant, of course, to coordinate perfectly with Finn + Emma’s Flower pattern, but we only used that as a jumping off point, as you can see.

As usual, not all our finds for this color scheme made the final design. If you want to see all the amazing options that we couldn’t include, be sure to visit the Finn + Emma Dark Purple Nursery Inspiration board on Pinterest!
