Nursery Palette

before i get into today's post, i wanted to mention that the expedit bookcase from this post comes in lots of different sizes and finishes. should have said that before! ok...

i have thought a lot about the color palette for the nursery. there are so many directions to go in - it's a little overwhelming. when i first began designing the nursery, we didn't know the genders of the twins. so the idea was to go gender-neutral. we have since found out the sexes but that's for a later post!

my normal inclination would be to go with color, lots of it, and some graphic elements. but my gut (ha) keeps telling me calming, neutral tones so i'm sticking to that feeling. and what's emerged is aqua and camel (i am calling it camel b/c i refuse to admit to tan or beige!).

another goal was not to have a theme or have anything that looked too baby-ish. for me, baby stuff will come in the form of accessories. the things that are the big investment pieces, i want to be able to use again. i'll break down the specifics in future posts :)

I love the color palette. I would imagine with twins that calm is definitely the vibe you'll want to go for :) My advice for the nursery is make it a room you love. The baby doesn't care (or in your case babies!), but you'll be the one sitting there at 3:00 am changing diapers. That being said, it's the most wonderful experience ever and two will be twice the fun! Can't wait to see more!
