When it comes to the colour white you may be thinking that it’s not high on your list of choices when decorating your babies nursery, too bland maybe? Today we are going to be sharing why we love white nurseries (and you should too!).  White is a neutral, versatile colour that brings a clean fresh look to babies nursery. Once more the colour white also provides the perfect blank canvas back drop. Allowing you to bring in other elements of personality through subtle colours, textures and details.

Pure White

This nursery design has an elegant and luxurious feel and doesn’t look drab or boring in the slightest despite only being white. The ornate shape and design of the cot adds interest and personality to the room whilst remaining stylish at the same time. Other features that enhance the style of the nursery include the wooden floor boards and classic white wooden wardrobe which give the nursery an air of french chic which we are just loving!

Add ornate details 

For a truly exquisite nursery design choose ornate details and pair with whites.  The stunning details on the cot, shelf and lighting fixtures give this nursery the wow factor which are complimented through the pleat details on the cushions and beautiful large white bow ties on the cot.

Play with added colours

With white you can mix and match other colours to create whichever style you would like your nursery to have from;  contemporary, glam, classic, to rustic. The key is to let the white still remain the most prominent colour whilst introducing other more colourful tones in a subtle way through your decor and accessories .
