Most of the nurseries we see feature pastels, muted colors or brights on the wall. But what do you think about using a dark color in the nursery like the one we found at Design Sponge? For smaller rooms (and lets face it, the nursery is often the smallest room in the house), dark colors can be used successfully to give depth to the walls, making it recede and helping to make the room appear larger. We like the black crib against the dark blue wall; it makes the rest of the colors and patterns in the nursery pop. See more of this fantastic nursery at Design Sponge.
