I think if you like it, that’s what is important.  There is plenty of pattern there, and baby rooms don’t always have to be a color riot.  I guarantee there will be plenty of color in your baby’s life!

Nurseries dont have to look bubble gum pink for girl and sky blue for a boy.  you can do something more designer friendly.  I like the set you picked out.

I did my son’s room in a rain forest theme with muted colors of grassy green, yellows, blues, and reds. 

On one hand you want your baby to be engaged in their surroundings and stimulated and curious, but also be able to sleep well in their room too, and too strong colors could be imho not condusive to nap time/bed time.

Honestly, the last thing you want your baby to be in her crib is stimulated.   I think that’s a beautiful set!  Like DG said, there are plenty of toys and other things with color for the baby.  If you like the set, go with it!

I like the neutral, earthy look of the bedding you posted. Plus, this place is primarily for sleeping so I wouldn’t think they would need too much stimulation.Go with what you guys like.

Yet…for me,  I agreed to an unmatching bright colored mobile b/c Darling Husband got it as a handme down from his family and I’m trying to stay flexible. So we have coordinated soothing deep plum and just a touch of pink,lavender, green and white matched accents in our nursery. Then- hello…this bright, brash, bold multi colored rainbow of colors and animals in a mobile dangling over the otherwise aesthetically pleasing sanctuary. Whatever!! πŸ™‚

My son slept wonderfully in his room, but also enjoyed his surroundings too.

There’s a fine line to walk imho.

@pansyshell: Laughing I’m going to use your research and the over-stimulation defense to try to get Darling Husband to take that mobile down in the next 2 months….Hmmmmm, hopefully it works.  I want to take some pictures of this place but can’t easily crop that mobile out. πŸ™‚

@pansyshell: I’m 31 weeks with my first baby so I don’t have experience, but my baby’s bedding is quite pale. I deliberately did this because I didn’t want the baby to be overstimulated when I’m trying to get her to sleep. I think black and white patterns are really good for baby’s eyesight – I’m not sure why, maybe they’re easier to focus on or something like that. I think it’s way more important for toys to be bright and to have patterns on them.

This is my attempt at subtle non-baby bright, with still enough color for little eyes. It’s a more tastefull, not in your face screaming at you! πŸ™‚ Even though the bedding is neutral, the bright lamps over the bed and other details give something to focus the eye.

@mh.albania: I think this inspiration board is so fun!  I love the night light, do you know where it’s from or is it just an image that you found on the Internet?
