Baby Room Paint Colors

When babies are first born, the only colors they can see well are black, white and grey. You’ll want to introduce a few colors into baby’s room, but experts recommend avoiding painting the walls red because it is the first color a baby sees, and a room with mostly red can be confusing. The best colors for babies to wake up to are shades that are softer, such as blues, greens and pinks, because a baby’s eyes can perceive those colors at about the same time as they develop.

Baby Room Paint Colors

A mural can be a fun way to bring a baby’s room to life, and it doesn’t have to be fancy; simple blocks of color in the shapes of animals, trees or flowers will do. Keep in mind that a very “baby-themed” mural will probably need to be changed sooner than a solid wall or one with a simple stripe, damask or other pattern. You can also pair or group complementary colors together to create a cheery look.

I have a little girl on the way and we’re trying to figure out paint colors right now. We want her room to have that open beachy kind of feel. Naturally we thought blue when going with a beach theme, but I’m afraid of it looking like a boy’s room. Any tips on complimentary colors so we can have that serene blue feel, but still keep it gender neutral?

Neutral walls are nice if you’re waiting until birth to learn your baby’s gender. You can add and change framed artwork in colors you love, and neutral walls can work as your child gets older. Neutrals are also a good choice if you want to showcase bedding, a hanging quilt, wall art, photographs or heirloom furniture pieces in your baby’s nursery. Neutral shades work well with either traditional or modern furnishings.

“Baby blue lasts about two years, if that. So I prefer a marine blue that doesn’t go too dark. With white trim, it’s bright and energetic — exactly the opposite of what you’d think a navy room would be. When he’s older, exchange the twin bed for a mahogany fourposter and bring in forest-green Black Watch plaid to take it from nautical to preppy.” —Lori Feldman

To add depth to painted objects such as trees, bushes and mountains, double-load the brush. To paint sweeping vistas, load green and cream together on the same brush so the green takes on different hues. Brushing on two colors at the same time creates a blended, gradient effect.

To add a 3-D, layered element to Bianca’s room, an antique desk, passed down from her paternal grandmother, was placed directly in front of a painted tree. When incorporating tall elements, such as trees and buildings, stick with proportion and scale that work well with furniture while providing a prime vantage point for kids. If you paint them too small, they can get lost behind furniture and lose their visual impact.

Layering effects give murals their lifelike appearance. A white picket fence gives Bianca’s room an extra layer of detail. To make the fence, cut several pieces of MDF to size with the tops mitered at two 45-degree angles. Install with a nail gun, then spackle, caulk and paint white.
