Expecting a baby it is always challenging and it makes you wonder about the type of accessories to buy, the color choice you should make when it comes to buying clothes or toys, and, of course, let’s not forget about the color of the room where your precious little one will live from now on. Because most of the parents know the gender of the baby, it makes their task much easier. In the same time, when you decide to decorate your baby’s room, you are aware of the fact that those colors on the walls, the toys the baby will play with and the blanket he will sleep with, all of them will be the first things that your son or daughter will lay eyes on. Even if we don’t have studies telling us about how the colors influence our babies in early age, we do have plenty of data about how adults base their decisions on the colors they see on the objects they want to buy.
Sometimes it is good to know the symbolism behind the colors. This way you can make decisions based on what your baby’s environment want to inspire. Some colors are mild and gentle, others are bold and vibrant. Read these next lines about each color and the symbolism behind and decide on the right combination for your baby’s room.
Color Red is all about emotions running wild, about being excited and passionate. Being so bold, red is an eye catching color.

If you decided for some reasons not to know the gender of the baby until he or she is born, then go for a gender-neutral room. Avoid painting the walls in pink or purple. Keeping red and blue as accents in the baby’s room it is a good idea when you don’t know exactly if you are going to have a boy or a girl.
When you decide for the nursery design is best to follow some simple rules. Choose one color as the main theme and choose two more colors as accents for variety and balance. You can also choose two complementary colors and go ahead after this and add one or two accents. Painting three walls in one color and the forth in a different color is a creative way to decorate a large nursery room.
We shall go over the colors again in a few words. For a sense of calmness and serene, green and soft blues are good choices. Red is too vibrant to be used as main color, orange gives the room a cozy feel, but really bright orange is better avoided in a small room, because makes the room look even smaller. With yellow you cannot go wrong as long as you combine it with other colors. Babies tend to cry a lot in yellow rooms, the energy of the color makes them feel anxious.
If you have problems deciding on the right color scheme, go with neutral tones. Decorate with beige, brown or ivory; are great choices for your nursery when you add a few splashes of color as well.
