If you are planning to renovate your home for your baby’s arrival, we can help you find the right paint color for your kid’s room. Our agenda is to look for whispering colors to sing your baby to sleep. Here, we gathered calming hues that are not too stimulating to help you create a tranquil nursery because if the baby is sound asleep, then you can sleep.

Baby Bliss

Of course, the first on this insta-inspiration list is a space where mommy or daddy can sit while they watch over their little one. Fill your kid’s room with this delicate paint color called Collensia (BCP-1281). Complete the whimsical look with soft furnishings that complement these soothing walls.

Mom’s Sweet Touch

Mimic this two-tone paint idea by using Fantastic Pink (BCP-0076) and Butterfly Blush (BCP-1282) to create a unique visual interest in your baby room. The combination of these mellow hues feels dreamy and soft. They remind us of the comfort we felt as we slept in our mother’s arms.

Gender-neutral Grey

Are you excited to repaint but you still don’t know if you’re having a boy or a girl? Pick a gender-neutral color like grey! A shade of cool grey like Emu (BCP-0549) can help you create a restful and luxurious ambiance that is perfect for a prince or a princess. If you want a simple yet sophisticated vibe, neutral is the way to go.

If grey is too dark for you… 

If dark neutrals are not your cup of tea but you still want to create a unisex nursery, copy this room by painting your walls with crisp white with subtle hints of grey and purple undertones. Use Silver Gray (BM-0227) and Stardust Ballroom (BCP-1308) to get this serene look. A little gold detail and grey soft furnishings keep it from looking plain and give the space a little warmth.

Heaven on Earth

Child of Heaven (BCP-0004) delivers a timeless appeal in this baby room. Keep the room neat and minimal with this gentle white. It provides the perfect backdrop for your kid’s art pieces and other obsessions that they will have in the future.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

This adorable but chic nursery room has just the perfect amount of sparkle! If you’re tired of seeing an endless parade of neutrals and plain walls, try painting a polka dot mural. Choose a lighter base like Silver Swish (V-26B) then use Woody Grove (V-28C) for the dots to give your baby’s room a soft warm touch. Overall, this looks cozy and kid-friendly.

They grow up so fast!

Notice how the paint colors suggested in this post are mostly neutrals. We hope that these neutral hues will grow with your baby. We predict that it would take a long time for them to outgrow these colors. If you want to spruce it up, you can always update your furnishings and add decorations that your kids like. Perhaps, you can even paint a mural featuring your child’s favorite cartoon character later on.

Time flies so fast. Three or four years from now, you’ll look at your nursery walls and you’ll remember the moment when you decided to repaint this special room. Before you know it, they’ll be walking and talking—asking you, “Where do babies come from?” When that day comes, I’m leaving you with this endearing and simple yet scientifically accurate answer from Sophie Blackall (as cited in a Brain Pickings article):

From inside their mom, says Mom.
They start off really tiny, says Dad.
Almost too small to see, says Mom.
They begin with a seed from their dad…
Which gets planted in an egg inside their mom…
The baby grows in there for nine months…
Until it runs out of room…
And it’s ready to be born. Sometimes at home…
But usually in the hospital.

Thank me later. Happy painting to the new moms and dads!
