Today, I’m bringing you a guest post written by Cassandra of AFK, an upscale children’s furniture company, based in Orange County. They have furnished many high-end clients’ nurseries, such as Mariah Carey’s (which was gorgeous!). The decor is absolutely gorgeous, and I went googley-eyed over the photos that Cassandra sent for the post. I am not pregnant, but that doesn’t mean I can’t browse different nursery themes for the future. Cassandra’s post covers key color scheme trends for 2016, and I’m loving them all (namely ‘white on white’ and ‘neutral paired’). I hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I did!

Picking a color scheme for your nursery is one of the first steps in creating your dream nursery. This will help guide you when picking out nursery furniture to create a cohesive feel. Follow the post bellow for four amazing on trend color pairings for 2016.

White on White

Selected by Benjamin Moore as the color of the year, white is a complex yet subtle color. The interplay of whites and light creates nuance and subtle beauty. By choosing to pair this color with itself, your nursery will be transformed into a place of serenity.

Rose Quartz and Serenity (Pink and Blue)

Selected as Pantone’s color(s) of the year, ‘joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.’

This forward thinking pairing combines two classic nursery colors in a very modern way, conveying gender fluidity and refusal of gender stereotypes. Perfect for those who love both colors and choose to step out of the traditional nursery color confines.


Neutral Paired

Pairing neutrals together is a fantastic way to keep your nursery earthy with a natural and calming feel. Think coffee and cream, sage and stone, or a creamy yellow with navy for your nursery decor. The possibilities are truly endless. You can choose between warm red tones or cool blue hues to create different vibes in your nursery depending on your taste. Inspired by nature, these interior decorating color schemes feel comfortable and cozy.GRAMERCY BUNK ROOM

Grey and Metallic Silver

Timeless and elegant grey color hues can be paired with metallic accents in light or dark silver colors, creating a gorgeous interior decorating color scheme with a futuristic vibe. Cool grey luxury baby furniture can be balanced by eye catching silver colors, offering simple and easy ways to create a monochromatic decor scheme while adding interest as well as shine with the reflective silver accents.
