Forget baby blue, powder pink or neutral off-white as the current nursery colour trend for the contemporary new-born is actually grey. From cot beds to wardrobes to soft furnishings, grey baby furniture is the home decor fashionista’s choice when it comes to calm and soothing style.

Long considered to be a colour that is sophisticated, elegant as well as timeless, choosing grey for your nursery sets is a wise choice in many ways. Ideal for those who like to decorate in advance of the birth as well as people who are starting to plan a family, grey is a choice that will suit boy or girl with enviable ease. Far from being drab, dark grey has a modernistic look that shows you aren’t afraid to come away from the stereotypical nursery colour choices. With the cot bed being the focal point of a baby bedroom, making a confident colour statement frames the look of the whole nursery.

Of course, silver grey is a colour that exudes lightness and brightness and has long been associated as a choice for people who love a bit of stylish bling in their home decor choices. When it comes to choosing your child’s wardrobe, you can either go for the short-term solution of smaller items with a definite baby theme or you may prefer to think longer term by choosing a wardrobe that will stay relevant long into the childhood years. Choosing grey for your baby furniture is an assured choice that will never date.

Fancy being just that little bit different and quirky? Give your child’s bedroom a quick and easy style boost with an item such as a shaped shelf that whilst helping to keep this busy nursery space needs and clutter free, will also add to the fun and freedom of being a child. This cloud shaped shelf may be grey but is far from dull and conjures up visions of going into a deep sleep on a cloud of fluffiness.

Grey is also the perfect colour choice for embracing their sense of adventure. Giving them their own independent space to play helps keep your house a home for all with a place for everything can everything in its place as well as giving them somewhere that brings the outdoors in. With grey being a colour that will easily adapt to the colour theme in any room, you are assured that there will never be a style compromise.
