A color combination we're always drawn to is blue and orange. We love a cool, serene blue punctuated with blasts of hot orange. It's perfect for a nursery belonging to a boy or a girl.
The orange and blue in this nursery is done just right. The walls remain white but the floor is light blue. If you can't paint your floors, a blue colored area rug or carpet tiles can give a similar effect. There are lots of orange and blue elements here, but it doesn't come off as being matchy-matchy. Anyone else like an orange and blue palette?
