I like the idea of neutral for a baby room because you can just change the linens and accessories with each child. Also, the neutrals prevents babies from becoming over-stimulated (sleep better, etc.).
This nursery is a master class in how to use accent colors effectively. White walls and warm wooden furniture sit beautifully alongside a patterned kilim rug and powder blue shutters. Touches of fire engine red add glorious contrast to complete this striking scheme with unisex appeal. For a new look, all you have to do is swap in different accessories.
