Dark Paint in a Nursery: Would you do it?

Last year, when I found out we were expecting again I was excited to start planning a new nursery, naturally. Where to start!?  We already had the basics (crib, changer, etc.) and weren’t going to purchase any new major items but I wanted to change up the look from our first son’s nursery.  I decided to play with colour!

For a while now, I’ve been inspired by several dark-hued nurseries I’ve seen around the web.

Dark paint in a nursery is unconventional, yes. But at the same time, it creates a cozy cocoon-like atmosphere. What do you think? Would you do it?

DECORATING TIP: Contrary to popular belief, dark walls don’t necessarily make the space look smaller. When paired with neutral, light accents (like trim and crown) and pops of colour, the room can still have depth.
