With names as pleasant-sounding to the ear as the wall paint colors are pleasant-looking to the eye, it’s worth taking a peek even if you’re not planning a near-term, nursery decorating project. Our favorite names are a light olive green paint called “Ribbit”, a taupe paint called “Dad’s Pants”, and a soft yellow-beige paint called “Buttered Noodles”. Clever :) The light green paint featured above is called “Inchworm”and is a gorgeous spring-like shade of green, great for a gender neutral themed nursery or a spring baby. Add more brown, mocha, or taupe décor to make it a bit more “boy”. Add soft pinks, bright pinks, or lavenders to make it a bit more “girl”. The lavender paint shade is called “Naptime” and is modern and fun. If you seek brightness, use white to complement your decorating as done by Land of Nod here. Or, bring in some light colored-wood furniture to soften up your look. Finally, for something way modern and striking, “Have you seen Tangerine” can bring in a rich, warm orange wall paint that will envelope your baby boy’s nursery in coziness. Best for bigger nurseries with a bit more space, as darker shades of paint can make a room feel small, try rich brown furniture as styled by Land of Nod with cool blue accents for a modern feel. Or, heavy up on the white and olive accents for something a bit more retro. With regard to eco-friendliness and kid safety, Land of Nod has it all buttoned up. All of their wall paints are eco-friendly, non-toxic, free of VOCs and solvents, and have nearly zero odor. Their paint is also safe from commonly sticky hands as it is scrub resistant. The paints are made by Mythic. See our other nursery wall paint ideas, particularly nursery wall paint trends for 2010.
