Inspiration for Parents To Be: Neutral Nursery

Are you expecting? I'm not, but one look at this nursery and I stopped dead in my tracks. It's the first nursery that I've seen in a really long time that actually spoke to me because it's very simple but with great attention to detail and I adore how neutral it was kept. I know what "studies say" about kids and color but I honestly would have a subtle nursery just like this one in a second and simply bring color in through books, dolls, craft supplies and clothing... There are ways to still have color without painting the walls bright yellow - unless of course that is your thing and if so, go for it! Nursery

The key to making a mostly neutral palette work is to vary the tints and tones and texture to add warmth and dimension. I love the striped ceiling!

This room was designed by Sissy + Marley and they sent it in because they thought decor8 readers would really like it. So, do you? What do you think of this color scheme and overall design?
