2nd Trimester


Do you think the color "Espresso" is too much of a masculine color for a baby girl's nursery furniture? I like it b/c I love changing the color scheme of my house/rooms, so I wanted to go with something that would look nice with many different colors. I don't really care for a lot of pink, so I was thinking about doing lavender,yellow, white, maybe a soft green or maybe a LITTLE pink here & there as accents in her room  (not all at once of course). I just don't want the furniture to look masculine.

    I don't think it is too masculine at all. I think that would depend on the bedding and decor of the room, not the shade of the wood.

    definitely not. Even if I have a girl, I'm doing light blue and dark wood with accents of yellow! My favorite color was blue as a girl. I think your color ideas sound fabulous.

    We did Espresso furniture for DD since most of our furniture in our house is dark wood.  I've since thrown in a couple of white accent pieces to lighten it up.

    I don't have my anatomy scan till Monday, but either which way I plan on using espresso.  I absolutely LOVE it.  There are many ways you can decorate around it to be more girly.  Have fun with it!

    I think dark wood is gorgeous with light colors. There's a ton of examples of the baby rooms bio https://babyroombio.weebly.com/index.html look under Girls Rooms/Not So Pink or Yellow or White/Cream/Tan for some inspiration

    I've seen a lot of cribs in Espresso that I think would look very nice.  We are planning to get a dark cherry crib, so it's similar, and I think the dark wood will be versatile with any other color scheme you choose.
