I’m often asked about colors palettes for the home and for websites and so I decided to create a series of colors that I hope will inspire you to find colors for your home or blog! As I’m sure you know, colors are very important when it comes to your home and DIY home decor projects; they can make or break a room! Colors are equally important for your branding and website. Today I’m sharing colors for a little girl’s nursery, inspired by my niece.

My niece is the first grandchild for my parents and they were so excited when my sister told them she was pregnant! My sister and her husband purchased a home a couple of months before we did and they haven’t had time to really decorate and makeover as they would like to because they’ve been doing such a great job taking care of my niece.
I can also understand that my sister didn’t want all of that renovation happening while my niece is so young. I would have made the same decision, wouldn’t you? I mean who wants all that dust and paint fumes around their baby?
Although I hate I’m so far away from her, I am glad that my sister sends pics so I can watch her grow up! It’s not the same, but it’s the best we can do. Thank goodness for technology and apps such as Skype and Marco Polo!

Using This Color Palette For a Girl’s Nursery

With this color palette, I would use the light, pale gray as the main color wall. This color is calming and great for your baby as well as the parents! Another plus to using this color is that as your daughter grows, the room can grow with her and you don’t have to frequently repaint as she matures.
As a little girl, I lived in pink and purple, did you have that pink and purple phase too? Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a full believer in using all colors for kids no matter the gender, but this color palette really speaks to me for my niece!
A pink crib such as this Evolur Aurora 5-in-1 crib or a dark gray crib such as this Graco Bryson 4-in-1 convertible crib would work well in the nursery! I’d choose furniture in the same color as the crib. Mom or Dad need a place to relax or hold her as she’s rocked back to sleep. Most nurseries have one chair for whoever is holding the baby, but I think there should be a sitting area if possible in the nursery. I think it creates a sense of family and bonding that’s both good for the baby as well as the parents or the loved one spending time with her!
Y’all, I’m so in love with these pink flower decals from Urban Walls. They just seem so light and happy and girly! Over her crib, I’d also place this Let Her Sleep Wall decal from Urban Walls or this decal of one of my favorite Bible verses, Jeremiah 29:11 in purple.
For the accessories, I would incorporate all of the colors in the palette and have some fun stuffed animals as decor also.
I’d also have a radio set to classical music or soothing jazz and just hope the parents and all loved ones just love on her!
