1. Grey

One of the top nursery wall colors right now is grey. It’s popular for its modern yet soft take on a gender-neutral color.

A light grey keeps the nursery feeling bright and airy. Plus, it gives a great backdrop to add about any decorative accent you like, especially when paired with white trim. It goes with any decor personality.

But more people are using grey in a nursery with a modern twist. A darker grey on an accent wall gives the nursery a sense of depth while still keeping it cozy.

It’s also great for giving baby’s eyes a break from stimulating colors. Vivid colors and contrast are often used on toys and other baby learning products. So the neutral environment allows your baby’s mind to take a much-needed rest.

4. White

White is the most simplistic and versatile nursery room color around. It keeps a room feeling bright and clean while also letting the room accents be the star of the show.

Many parents bring color into the room through colorful bedding or furniture pieces. A wall mural can also take center stage in a white room.

But you can keep a white nursery feeling light and clean without adding a bunch of color accents. Using different textures in rugs, pillows, and blankets still give the room visual interest while staying neutral.
