Any colors that you recommend for a neutral nursery?? Creams, Grays, Blues?
Do you have bedding in mind yet that you like? I'd base it off of that.
We did retro avocado and riviera beach (which is just a brown beige):

Ditto. Our nursery is a celery color, but that's just because it matches the bedding.
We did a yellow color, it looks cream in this link but it's yellow..We had Behr color match it though,b/c I don't like Valspar paint.
We did Martha Stewart Whetstone Gray and Sharkley Gray in our living room.
Very nice neutral grays.
I love taupe. Grays tend to be too cool or have colored undertones (pink, green or blue) and beiges tend to bee to warm or orangey, like bad foundation LOL. Taupe is like a neutral mix of both. Our dining room is Taos taupe- it's my fave room in the house, and I think we're going with a lighter, grayer "hampshire taupe" in the baby's room. Both are by Benjamin Moore. I also adore "paris rain" aslo by BM... it's my bathroom color (with white trim) and I get so many compliments on it. It's a grayish beigey green. It would be gorgeous with pinks as an accent, or more earthy colors for a boy.
FWIW, I didn't want a blue nursery because everything coming into it will be blue, plus I have a huge fear that the gender u/s was wrong (no reason, just paranoid) I wanted to keep it neutral even though we're expecting a boy. Our furniture is dark brown, so I want a lot of white accents to lighten it up. We decided on gray, white, chocolate and baby blue for our color scheme. That way if the u/s was wrong and he is a she... swap out the blue blankies and teddy bears and replace them with pink ones :)
good luck decorating!!!
