Nursery: Colour Palette/Fabrics

Next up on the nursery list is nailing down my colour palette and picking some fabrics. I've been shopping up a storm online and my first batch of fabric options arrived yesterday. Just waiting for option number two to arrive to make a decision and then painting!

Here's a look at the overall colour palette I'm thinking for our gender neutral nursery:

And a few of the fabric options on the table...

Option 1: Tula Pink, Prince Charming Collection in Honey
(the raindrops and the froggies are my fave. Can you see the froggies?)

Option 2: Joel Dewberry, Modern Meadow

And some neutral grays I'm considering from Tonic Living to throw into the mix:

Remember, it needs to be gender neutral since we're not finding out until the big day what this babe is. I figure I can always add in some masculine or feminine touches once the baby is born. I'm thinking I'll stay neutral with the wall colour, maybe a gray, but will have to wait to see which fabrics I pick first. Decisions, decisions!

What do you think?

  1. I love the direction and I can't wait to see the progress. I found Oscars nursery really hard to do, even knowing we were having a boy. I think as long as you make it a calm space you are 99% there. Xoxo

  2. I realize I didn't really give you feedback on which. Oops. Both options are similar but I loved option 1

  3. Love the palette Christine! You're babe is one lucky kid :) Obviously I love both options - what's not to love! But I think I'm may be leaning ever so slightly towards #2. The neutrals from Tonic are classics!
    So excited for you and your hubby Christine. amy xoxo

  4. Great choice in colours Christine! I really like the first option. We didn't find out what we were having either and I tried to stay gender neutral, but anpink dresser had to be thrown in there. Ha ha. Keaton has moved on to a more masculine colour palette now ;)

  5. I don't see why you couldn't mix the palettes! If they're spread out throughout the room no one will notice if the tones are slightly different.

  10. Option 2 is my fave! Gray is always perfect in any room too. You're going to have the cutest baby's room!

  11. I love them all! But for a more neutral option, I choose #2!

  12. I like the pale yellow or the pale blue (even if it is a girl) ... but then Vancouver is grey enough without grey paint so I might be biased. Grey in Edmonton would be gorgeous! Great palette!

  13. Oh my goodness, how to pick a favorite? They're all so gorgeous!

  15. I love the colour scheme and the froggies and raindrops are my favourite too. They will be so much fun when your little one starts naming things too and finds the hidden "ribbits" on his/her pillow!

    Have you looked on Spoonflower? There are so many adorable fabrics on there too, it's total cute overload!

    Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  16. What an amazing colour palette you've chosen. I would have that anywhere in my home. I love the raindrops and froggies as well. I actually love every single one of those fabrics. Can't wait to see what you're doing with it all.

  17. Love both palettes C! Lucky beba. My fav is #2. And I LOVE that grey herringbone fabric... maybe for bedroom drapes. Is it heavy enough to be made into window coverings, y'think?
