17 Enviable Green Nursery Ideas
Note: While these nursery photos are gorgeous, please know that it’s NOT safe to place stuffed animals, pillows, bumpers, or any loose items inside your infant’s sleep space until Baby is a year old. —Dr. Harvey Karp
Designing a baby room for your little boy or girl? The colour green, often overlooked in favour of more popular gendered picks pink and blue, or the classic neutral choice of white, is having a moment. Green opens up a world of possibilities from bright and cheerful to soothing and sweet; from bold and edgy to natural and soft.
Whether you are going for statement pieces against a neutral background, or an all-out green scene, here is some gorgeous green nursery inspiration for your home.
