A (So Not) Neutral Nursery Theme September 06 2009

This crib is from Petit Tresor, a Los Angeles based baby furnishings company, and we think it is a brilliant example of an impossible-to-be-boring neutral baby room.  Great for a boy or girl's baby room, the blue, orange, yellow, and green color palette will make it feel like summer every day. We must warn you.  The price of the crib alone is a shocker ($1200).  If this is as hard to handle for you as it is for us, consider what you could do with some good white baby furniture and some great shades of paint.  We love how they dressed up the nursery with bears on the wall shelf and that cute giraffe - that giraffe wall decor piece is especially good.  Note that you need to do very little with wall color given the vibrancy of the color in the baby furniture.
