Never too soon to join the fandom! Gray is a decidedly untraditional choice for nursery walls, but it’s actually a pretty smart choice. It’s a restful hue for an infant or toddler, and once your child is old enough to start choosing colors, it’s a neutral that can pair with any shade.

Saturated Scarlet Benches
Consider painting wood furnishings in a complementary tone to gray or blue walls. Standard benches in a saturated hue add fun perches in underused space.

Maintain the Flow
With flooring that continues from one room to the next, wall color can differentiate rooms without breaking up the overall flow. Floor-to-ceiling gray—trim included—coordinates with this bedroom’s bold, blue furnishings as well as the white-and-gold bath.
