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.
