Trend Spotting: Dark walls in the nursery

Pin It

Lately, I’ve noticed nurseries with chic dark walls popping up in my Pinterest feed. While some moms and dads are using dark color to add warmth and drama to the entire room, others are using it to create a focal point with an accent wall.

Some (including me) think that dark walls in the nursery can be calming and stylish, but others feel that it may be too dark and depressing for a baby’s room. What do you think of this trend? Here are 10 Nurseries with Dark Walls to help you decide!

  1. I can’t get over a chalkboard wall. I know we’ve all seen it a million times but it’s divoon.

  2. I think the pictures of the dark walls look nice, however if the room is on the smaller side or the furniture is dark also, it can look a little too cave-like.

  3. I love the dark walls

  4. I love a dark wall. They’re much more practical for very little babies when you want them to sleep during the day and bubs won’t outgrow the colour in the way they would something cutesy.

  5. A dark wall would look good as long as you have some light wall decal or light wall feature to brighten it up. I like the one with the white flowers.

  6. I really like the dark walls when paired with lighter, softer colors. The primary color themes come across as too hard and cold while the tertiary ones seem much more cozy and baby-ish to me. Great post!

  7. These environment-friendly car outlining devices after that coat these debris so that they can not re-adhere to the washed carpet or to each
    various other.

  8. I think wallpaper with black color is only suitable for a baby boy because I think black is not suitable for a baby girl.
