Wish you could lean on the expertise of a professional interior designer to create a cohesive, beautiful nursery for your baby? You're in luck! We hired one to create some examples you can draw inspiration from (or replicate exactly!). She chose beautiful combinations of colors from our designer inspired collection and added gorgeous decor and furnishings to create unique aesthetic spaces with the perfect amount of whimsy and sophistication. Check out the 4 fantastic nursery color palettes and designs below.

Featuring Lullaby's paints in Blaze, Sabino, Equine and Wake, our Pretty Little Horses design is an equine inspired collection of earthy colors from Epsom Downs.

Close your eyes and imagine it: The glow of the rising sun creeping over the horizon and lifting the fog to reveal ancient chalk uplands steadied for the day ahead. Dark brown race horses freshly saddled canter in preparation for a long gallop to open their lungs to the chilled air. Now open your eyes and see that landscape captured in a nursery!

Featuring Lullaby's paints in Lilac, Dawn Mist, Wicker Creel and Flax, our Hush Little Baby design is inspired by the lilac fields of the French country side touched with flaxen and lavender hues.

Sturdy farmhouse furniture with chipped and faded paint, worn by years of daily use. Natural linen and woolen fabrics functional yet fine. Colors come from local flowers and produce traded on the stalls in the farmers’ market each Saturday morning.

Featuring Lullaby's paints in Azure Sea, Tangerine, Black and Citron, our Itsy Bitsy design is full of contrast and unanticipated combinations. This collection nevertheless finds perfect matches. Resembling children playing leapfrog, colors try to outshine each other before, being coaxed like a lively child to calm down before bed, the bright colors are gently subdued by darkness.

Featuring Lullaby's paints in Pavarotti, Portobello, Thatch and Sheep's Wool, our Baa Baa Black Sheep design has strong, dark earth tones that reflect a rustic feel, with colors picked from the fading embers of a cozy hearth to convey a feeling of warmth and comfortable security. Overtones of a highland croft house, nestled on a peat moor overlooking a grazing flock of hardy sheep quieting down as dusk settles.
