Yellow & Grey - too feminine for a neutral nursery? Good Queen Bess 2 kids; Ontario 45800 posts
29th Dec '12

We are getting ready to decorate the larger of our three guest rooms, and I wanted to paint it yellow and grey.



As we are also TTC, this room will turn into a nursery in the event we do have a child.



Do you think it is too feminine?

Thank you!



The last thing I want to do is a typical pink or blue nursery. I wanted something that would grow well with a child.

I think yellow and grey are excellent colors for either sex. So it won't be too boyish or girly.

That's actually my favorite two colors together. I think it would be great for either sex.

Not too feminine at all.

you can always add a splash of bright blue, pink, lavender,green or any other bright cheerful color.



I wanted yellow and gray with aqua accents for this boy, hubs isn't buying it. :(



He'll be sharing a room with us for quite a while and our bed and end tables are gray.

I think it sounds pretty neutral. In fact, I was just looking at an awesome yellow/grey room

That's what I thought as well.



For a boy, antique maps and for girls, sunflowers.

sounds perfect! maybe some blimps, dirigibles, hot air balloons and maps for a boy.



At least that's what I'd do if I could.

That's exactly what I was thinking....I found a great mobile with hot air balloons that I fell in love with.

is it felt and off etsy? I'm getting one as soon as I have an idea what bedding we're going with. I might just have my SIL make it, since my husband has made things pretty difficult.
