Baby Argyle Nursery Ideas for Boys, Girls and Neutral Rooms
Plaid is great, but argyle nursery decor and baby bedding may be even better! There is just so much that can be done with this unique pattern on the walls, floors and last but not least, the possibilities for stylish color schemes using argyle patterns.
I can imagine any number of popular color schemes that would lend themselves beautifully to an argyle design in both boys’ and girls’ nurseries. For girls, pink and black diamonds with the traditional argyle "stitch" in an X shape in white would make a superb background for a Parisian baby room. For boys, a blue and green argyle baby bedding set would kick off a golf theme argyle nursery cute enough to make dear old dad miss his tee time.
And one of these days maybe, just maybe, I will find the perfect opportunity to decorate a vintage argyle baby nursery theme for a little boy using my cache of vintage golf clubs that are gathering dust in my closet.
As this elegant nursery for a baby girl proves; argyle is not a pattern reserved for baby boys. The hot pink walls accented with a bold black and white painting technique accented with faux jewels is as feminine as can be.
GENDER NEUTRAL ARGYLE NURSERY DECORATING IDEAS In my opinion, there are two choices in argyle nursery design. The first choice (and the least time consuming) would be to let the argyle baby bedding set enjoy center stage and choose your decorations to complement it rather than to compete. My second choice, which is by no means the simplest, is to paint an argyle pattern on the nursery walls using colors that will work well with your preferred crib bedding. If you have a very large nursery you may be able to use both. But the nursery floor plan that could pull this off is rare.
COLORS There are several color combinations that I have used to decorate an argyle baby nursery.
ARGYLE DECOR Dress a teddy bear in a cute argyle sweater and hat or paint a similar pattern on a lamp shade that you used on the nursery wall to give your nursery design a balanced appearance. If your baby's nursery floors are in less than perfect shape, consider painting your argyle designs on the floor in lieu of an area rug rather than using it to decorate the walls.
UNIQUE ARGYLE IDEAS All that is necessary to pick up some ideas of your own is a visit to the sock department of the neighborhood male clothing store. But the best procedure is to pull three or at the most four colors from your baby bedding set and use them to the best advantage. The very versatility of argyle is what keeps it looking new and trendy regardless of its age.
Argyle nursery bedding may not be everyone’s taste, but to dismiss this classic design as old fashioned would be a tragic mistake.
