Color and Contrast with Aesthetics

A neutral backdrop is the perfect way to bind the various bright elements of an eclectic nursery together. Throw in that classic crib in wood, a bright rug in orange, accent wall with a dash of pattern and a comfy seta in the corner even as you paint the backdrop gray of white to give the room a curated look. Colorful lighting fixtures add to the brightness of the room while wall sections in brick or stone can add textural contrast.
