Modern Green Baby Nursery Bedding and Decor

Updated on October 31, 2015

Modern Green Nursery Ideas - Fresh Styles for a Gender Neutral Baby's Room

Modern designs of crib bedding in crisp green shades are a refreshing change in nursery decor. If your home decor is minimalist and sophisticated, a cutesy nursery may not work for you - we do, after all, try to achieve a certain flow throughout the house or apartment in terms of color and decor - but just because you're decorating a room for a baby, that doesn't mean you're restricted to infancy in style.

C'mon, step away from the widdle Mr Froggie look and consider an approach that Mom and Dad can appreciate, too - you're going to be spending a whole lot of time in this room, while Junior is tiny!

Vibrant citron or lime, or a cooler shade tending towards the blue-ish teal, or the popular natural hues that remind us of fresh-mown hay or rain-washed cedars... all these modern shades of green play well with chocolate brown, rich cream or warm white, cool blue and turquoise. Consider a stronger tone of any of these, or a bright warm color such as burnt orange, tangerine, or sunflower yellow as an accent.

Some of the best nursery bedding designers have come out with unique styles in recent years, playing on the popularity of color palettes inspired by the hues of nature. Geometric or graphical, these crisp chic designs of crib sets and coordinating accessories will open your eyes to a whole new range of options in a modern green theme for your nursery decor.

Oilo Modern Berries - Sophisticated Nursery Crib Bedding in Spring Green

For those who crave the unmistakeable style of high-end Scandinavian design, stunning with pale blonde wood for a mid-century decor or with fine furniture in a dark finish for a thoroughly up-to-date take on this classic look, see Oilo.

A Note on Bumpers

Your choice, but do consider the design...

Note that I'm also showing the matching crib bumpers for some of the bedding sets here, which you may prefer not to use. We've talked elsewhere about the mixed feelings that some parents have about the bumper issue, and I've suggested a couple of safe alternatives if you don't want the padding but you don't want to go with the bare crib rails either.

No problem, it's a personal choice either way - but do have a look at the use of the plain solid color as a contrast in the paisley print set, for example. Designers put a lot of thought into the choice of fabrics for the ensemble as a whole, and considering how they're seeing the whole picture will help to give you some idea on how to balance the colors and patterns you want to use, as you're planning your own baby's room.

Lesson here, if you do choose to forego the padded fabric bumpers that are intended to go with the crib sets, think about how you can bring the room decor back into overall balance by selecting a fairly substantial piece of furniture or accessories, such as an ottoman or chair, floor mat or wall art, with a good dash of the secondary accent color.

Lime Green Paisley Splash Baby Bedding - 4-Piece Crib Set by My Baby Sam

It may be tempting to go with an off-white or pale mint shade for your walls, but the best effect will come if you pull a soft light-mid blue tone from the paisley pattern. The contrast is rather effective. Bold decorators with a flare for the dramatic (and a room with ample natural light) might want to try a mid-range brown accent wall, but I'd be more inclined to pick up that brown from the print in your soft furnishings (a chocolate-colored armchair and ottoman, for example) and accessories.
