Nursery decorating ideas inspired by the YOLO Colorhouse Sprout Collection

When a new mom begins nesting, there’s usually one thing on the top of her list: Designing, decorating, and fluffing her new chick’s nursery. There are all sorts of decisions to be made in terms of color palettes for your new baby’s room. Will you swath the room in pink for your new baby girl or perhaps planes of blue for a baby boy? If you’re not learning the sex of the baby, maybe you’ll opt for the gender-neutral yellow?

Here are some nursery decorating ideas inspired by the earth-friendly hues of the Yolo Colorhouse Sprout Collection, we chose one of our favorites, colorway .04, for a cheerful yellow baby’s room. Yolo Colorhouse paints are no-VOC and completely free of fumes, toxins, and known carcinogens, so they make the perfect paint option for your baby’s room. The soft yellow shade featured in this inspiration board speaks to both the neutral-lover or the new parent looking to feather her nest with every band of the rainbow.

The Collins Beige Herringbone Chair provides a comfortable spot to snuggle your newborn, but the traditional wingback shape and neutral color palette allows it to transition seamlessly into the rest of your home after your little one outgrows his or her nursery.

A super soft area rug is a must in a nursery where little arms and legs will roll around and eventually learn to crawl.

Incorporate soft light with a pendant light on a dimmer. This spherical pendant light, the Equinox Foyer Pendant, in an antique bronze finish ressembles a baby mobile.

In a nod to the French tradition, the Normandy Double Chest dresser combines an antique white finish with caning detail in the drawers.


Playing off of the buttery yellow hue of Sprout .04, the Georgetown Square Cocktail Ottoman brings a splash of vibrant yellow into this room.

Flanking the monogrammed wall décor, the Bridgeview wall sconce in an oil-rubbed bronze finish creates a chic vignette over the crib.

While we’re confident you won’t forget your sweet baby’s initials, a monogram over the crib adds a sweet gesture to a nursery. These inexpensive wooden letters make a great afternoon project, whether you’re hoping to leave them unfinished, stained, or painted.

Yolo Colorhouse’s Sprout Collection provided the original inspiration for this calming nursery.
