4 Ways to Add Black to the Nursery
Design Advice

Black Accents are for Nurseries Too

Light and airy hues and subtle pastels have long been a staple for nurseries. When planning for children’s spaces, there’s often the inclusion of grays, blues, and the like. One color that doesn’t often make the cut (but should)? Black.

We picked some of our favorite Nestig nurseries that expertly showcase how to incorporate black into your nursery design!

1. Make a statement with a paneled black wall
In her stunning nursery, Janise Mayo created a moody and industrial space with black painted walls, vintage brown leather, and the Wave mini crib to top it off. We can't get over these stunning photos with her two sweet babies! Steal her style by choosing neutral hues and rich textures to bring the space together.
2. Pair a black wall with safari prints
In the nursery that mom and designer, Saida, put together for a friend, she paired the color palette with some favorite safari animals—perfectly topped off by Nestig's Cloud Crib. She shared with us, "My inspiration for doing a black nursery was actually to keep it gender neutral, now typically black is not seen as a neutral color or even a kids color, but I wanted to take a color that wasn't typically associated with a nursery design and make it design friendly, and I think it turned out great." We couldn't agree more!

3. Pair your crib with black elements already in your space
New mom and design enthusiast, Emily brightened up her bedroom by blending natural elements with black furniture. Nestled against the black poster bed, Nestig’s Wave Crib in natural wood adds the perfect contrast. Nestig Mom, Ruelle, took a similar design route with Nestig’s natural wood Wave Mini together with her black poster bed.
