Design Inspiration: Using Red in the Nursery
Red is a dynamic and energizing color that can give any room a lot of personality, but many people assume it might not be right for a nursery since it’s not known as a soothing color. Nothing could be further from the truth! Red can add a real wow-factor to a nursery and today we’ll prove it to you. Here are tips and design inspiration for using red in the nursery.
Tip #1 - Don’t go overboard. Too much red can be overwhelming and over over-stimulating. Use it in moderation for the best design aesthetic – like just painting one wall red.
Tip #2 - Experiment with your color palette. Red is far more versatile than you’d think (and you’ll see it in our examples below). It works well with a wide range of color palettes, so play around a bit before settling on your final color choices.
Tip #3 - In small spaces, use red very sparingly. If your nursery is a little cramped, paint the walls a bright white, light gray or other pale color to trick the eye into believing the space is bigger. Incorporate red in little ways like a few small decor pieces or a bright red crib.
