USE COLOURS IN PERFECT PROPORTION
For a balanced look in a nursery (or any room), be sure to think about the proportions of colours in the space. Achieve a harmonious effect by using the primary colour in 60% of the space, 30% in a secondary colour and 10% in an accent colour. This method helps create a cohesive look.
Pink-beige, white and dark grey
The primary wall is painted in a pink-beige to add calm and joy to baby’s room. Present in more than 50% of the room’s colours, this colour is ideal for melting away stress and daily worries. To play up pink tones, use accessories like a rose-coloured quilt.
The second wall is painted in muted white. This neutral paint colour pairs perfectly with pink-beige and adds a fresh look to the décor. For a cohesive effect, choose other elements, like a crib, in the same colour. This way, you’ll have no trouble deciding what to buy!
The accent colour is dark grey. As it should only cover around 10% of the space, it’s the ideal shade for a dresser to complete the look. Dark grey, another neutral, adds character to the room without being too bold. It’s what every parent wants in a nursery: tranquility with style! Use this Sico paint colour scheme to achieve this look:
Vanilla Orchid 6188-21

Inuit Grey 6181-52
Grey-beige, white and canary yellow
Grey-beige is used as the primary colour in this nursery. Just as peaceful as pink-beige, this colour is even more serene, sensible and solid. If you’re looking to calm your baby’s mind as well as your own, pairing this grey- beige with white is a great option.
White aids focus and brings stability to mind and body. For a Scandinavian touch, decorate with wooden furniture and accessories. Using natural materials such as wood gives a room personality while letting in more light.
Finally, serve up a strong dose of energy by adding canary yellow as your accent colour. Combined with the two neutrals, this bright yellow evokes the summer sun that does us so much good. So, complete the look with your favourite yellow accessories.
It’s as simple as that! Here are three Sico colours for inspiration:
Bronze Dust 6234-21
Bronze Shimmer 6234-11
