Tra­di­tion­ally nurs­eries have been pink, blue or more gen­der-neu­tral pas­tels such as le­mon or mint.

Choos­ing a soft colour can def­i­nitely help the space feel more calm­ing but Jus­tine from Vault In­te­ri­ors says you don’t nec­es­sar­ily have to stick with tra­di­tional pas­tels.

“A nice neu­tral paint colour is a good base to start lay­er­ing your room with be­cause you can swap out ac­cent art, rugs and linen as your child grows,” she says. “A soft warm grey is gen­der neu­tral and looks amaz­ing paired with any shade of blue, yel­low or even a mix of colours.”

But, Belinda warns, don’t think a calm nurs­ery will nec­es­sar­ily equal a calm night’s sleep.

“My youngest child’s nurs­ery was a very calm space but he was (and still is) a shocking sleeper,” she laughs.

“There are some things I would rec­om­mend may help though such as avoid­ing a lot of red in the room, keep­ing stim­u­lus out of baby’s sleep area and in­vest­ing in good block­out win­dow cov­er­ings.”
