2) Show them the colours of the rainbow
One of the first things your children will learn at school is the colours of the rainbow, so why not put them one step ahead of their classmates and introduce them to these early? Rather than focussing on pinks for girls and blues for boys, giving them the opportunity to find a favourite colour outside of these societal norms will help them to develop their true personalities.
You'll obviously still want your nursery to look good, so make sure you don't go overboard with clashing colours. Instead, pick two or three primary shades and add smaller hints of colour throughout the room if you think it could do with it. In general, I'd advise that you give pastels a miss as these can be hard for your child to distinguish, as they won't be vibrant enough for their developing eyesight.
Painting three of your nursery walls in one shade and the final wall in another can help you to incorporate some colour in a stylish way, as can opting for multicolour striped wallpaper. You could even paint any cabinetry or surfaces in matching shades to create some cohesion. Finally, add bedding, throws, and hanging mobiles in bright colours, then finish everything off with a multicoloured rug that matches the walls to bring the whole room together nicely.
