Summer 2022's Nursery Colour Palette


Wondering which colours to sport in your baby’s nursery or bedroom this summer? Look no further than these trending shades, which promise to inject a stylish and uplifting feel. Here are the colours that are big news in the interior design world right now (we can confirm they’ll look gorgeous in your little munchkin’s room)…

  • Transportive Blues

Fact: Incorporating summery hues that are reminiscent of glistening waters and blue skies can completely transform a nursery. Not only can they whisk you off somewhere exotic every time you walk in, but they’re also incredibly calming and soothing. Don’t be fooled – these blues don’t just work for summer, they’re seasonal all-rounders too. So splash their room in an array of blues to truly get with the trend – try out sea blue, sky blue, turquoise and sapphire blue. And remember, blue doesn’t have to indicate a gender-specific nursery – use it on walls with clouds painted on top or incorporate blue furniture in your little one’s snuggly space.

  • Rainbow Shades

Rainbow fever is truly here! You may be seeing rainbows everywhere right now with Pride 2022 celebrations taking place – and they’re trending in nurseries and bedrooms too. Whether you choose rainbow wall art or go all out with a stunning wall mural, rainbows are the most beautiful childhood symbol. What’s more, they also represent hope and positivity to every parent, so we say they’re a must-have in every baby nursery. Need a helping hand designing a rainbow-themed nursery?

  • The New Neutrals

Neutral colours but make them 2022. Yes, move over Scandi hues, beiges and creamy tones because this year is all about the alternative neutrals – mushroom, almond, stone and oak shades. The effect? Warmth with depth, which equals an effortlessly premium vibe. Nope, they’re not as mainstream as the original neutrals, but they really bring a lot of character. It’s worth noting that when mixed with black and white décor, the new neutrals really thrive. You might like to sport the colour trend through furniture, linen or wallpaper in their room – whatever you choose your eyes will never get bored.

  • Colour Drenching 

All small, compact nurseries will thank you for this colour trend. It’s called colour drenching and it’s all about choosing a colour and quite literally sticking with it. That means painting the walls and opting for key pieces of furniture in the same colour, giving the room a colour washed effect. The vibe? Contemporary and artistic. The magic happens when you start to add décor, flooring and rugs in contrasting colours. As these will naturally stand out against the primary colour, it really adds a show-stopping effect.

  • Green Scene

Forest green, aquatic green and olive green are the hues of summer 2022 interiors. Evoking nature, tranquillity and escapism in a powerful way, they’re all about letting outdoor colours inside. We love these for their versatility – they can be used in unisex nurseries and won’t go out of style when your bundle grows to a big kid. Mix and match with mustard yellows, blacks, browns and golds for a fancy feel.
