Are you looking for a bold, unexpected nursery color palette? Look no further than this concept featuring purple and green as the main colors (we know it sounds crazy, but it works!). With a Dark Purple from our Finn and Emma collection as the backdrop this new nursery design from Esther at Buy Modern Baby accomplishes a beautiful balancing act between relaxing and eye-catching. Esther says, “While it’s a deep color, there’s a lot of gray in the Dark Purple, giving it a wonderful, dusty, neutral look. It’s meant, of course, to coordinate perfectly with Finn + Emma’s Flower pattern, but we only used that as a jumping off point, as you can see.” Check out her daringly beautiful dark purple nursery design!
Why is the air quality in a nursery so important for babies? Babies spend up to sixteen hours a day in their nursery sleeping or resting. As you can guess, during this time they’ll be breathing in any airborne pollutants invisibly floating about. And a newly painted and furnished nursery may contain more than 300 chemicals! So, do you need an air purifier in the nursery? Read on to find out!

Here’s a simple design fact: Gender neutral nurseries do not have to be boring beige (unless you love beige, of course!). Yes, it’s true – color does not have to absent for a room to remain gender neutral. Below you’ll find some great examples of gender neutral nurseries with a lot of personality that don’t knock you over the head with whether it’s for a boy or girl. The only obvious fact is that they are beautiful rooms with very lucky kids that get to grow up in them! Check out these gender neutral nurseries featuring bright colors.
There are many facts of life and one of them is kids grow. And grow. And grow. And, as they grow in height and size, their personalities and tastes change, too. If you want to avoid repainting and replacing almost everything in the room every few years, you need to design bedrooms that grow with your child. Today we're sharing expert advice and inspiration from Houzz, as well as a giveaway of Lullaby Paints, so you can make your flexible space a reality!
When you close your eyes and think of a yellow nursery you might picture a room so bright that it’s hard to imagine your baby actually getting any sleep in it. This was the case for Esther of Buy Modern Baby who says, “I generally stay away from yellow. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with it, I just had an overdose of yellow a few years back. We moved into this house when I was 6 months pregnant. It was clean and move-in ready, but all the walls throughout (minus the bedrooms and bathrooms) were painted a sunny yellow. It was a bright shade that made it look like the morning sun was shining right in, even on a cloudy day, but it was impossible to decorate around.”
You’re probably familiar with the offensive odor and fumes that come from a can of conventional paint. That smell is caused by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and beyond being stinky, they’re also linked to nasty health impacts. October is National Home Indoor Air Quality Action & Awareness Month and it just so happens that paints can be a major source of indoor air pollution. Clearly it can be an issue anywhere in your home, but today we’re focusing on the nursery because babies are the most vulnerable to toxic exposures. Here’s what you need to know about how paint impacts the air in your nursery (for longer than you think).
When we were young, stores had just one little aisle devoted to Halloween costumes and decor. Today, huge sections are devoted to the holiday with decorations ranging from small indoor knick-knacks to the humongous, blow-up monstrosities (pun intended!) that can take up your whole yard. It’s great to have options, but we think hands down that handmade is always the best. That’s why today we’re sharing 13 chalkboard paint ideas for Halloween. You’ll find inspiration for outdoor displays, indoor decorations, and fun things for the kids to do with you too! So, skip the store for this season’s best decorating and use Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint to make your own unique, spooktacular creations!
