Earthy Tones: Neutral Nursery Furniture for your Baby’s Room

Choosing a colour scheme for your nursery? We’ve done the ‘groundwork’ for you – earthy tones are where it’s at!

Colours such as beige, terracotta and sage are perfect for your baby’s room and will give it an on-trend bohemian aesthetic. These natural shades are warm and grounding – and are certainly more soothing on those 2 am night feeds than bright red or garish purple décor!
