My Modern Nursery #113: Golden Glow Yellow Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

After more than thirty nursery boards where I’ve used Lullaby Paints colors as the backdrop, I was starting to worry that I had chosen all my favorite shades of wall paint. Of course there were a few more colors that would be perfect for use on accent furniture pieces, but I wasn’t sure how many more colors were left to use for nursery inspiration. Of course you can always color match from other brands to create your favorite zero VOC paint, but you can imagine my delight then when Lullaby Paints updated their site, adding hundreds of new shades to their shop!

It was time to do another yellow nursery and instead of a handful of options, I found…

Lullaby Paints yellow choices

I was looking for a medium (not too light nor too dark), rich (but slightly muted) yellow that would create a cozy, modern atmosphere. I think Golden Glow is a perfect shade for anyone brave enough to go beyond the pale, so to speak, when it comes to yellow.

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!

Real Room Tour: Bright and Colorful Family Home in Finland

I’m enjoying this year’s bright neon trend reminiscent of the 1980s, so Laurana’s family home in Finland really jumped out at me.  At first the wall in her daughter Neela’s modern nursery might seem overly bright, but within the home, it’s a perfectly balanced part of the overall color scheme.

The Stuva storage system from Ikea comes in lots of bright, fun colors and looks perfect in Neela’s room.  The Gulliver crib is also from Ikea so you can see how this look would be easy enough to replicate in your own space.  If you’re looking for the pom pom decorations, visit Pom Love.

Laurana blogged about the nursery, so if you open up your Google translate, you can go read more about it on Life Thru a Lens.

Now I haven’t done this before, but I really want to show you the rest of Laurana’s home.  I truly believe that a nursery or child’s bedroom shouldn’t be the only kid-friendly area of the house.  I love a child-friendly, fun home.  Kids are part of your family and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be comfortable and welcome in all areas of the house.  I also think that “grown-up areas” in a home should be more colorful, playful and fun.

Keep reading to see photos of the rest of the house!

Real Room Tour: Susan’s (Zuzia’s) Sunny Space

It’s been a while since I featured a nursery tour, so I was very excited when Kate sent me the photos of her daughter’s nursery.

This nursery makes me really miss DwellStudio’s Gio Lemon Crib Set.  While it’s still available in Aqua, this mustard yellow and purple color combo looks so fresh and feminine.

It’s a little hard to see, but there’s a sweet giraffe wall decal to the left of the crib.  It’s such a cute complement to the bedding.

The side table is perfectly accessorized with fun purple and yellow items.
