Whether bright and vibrant or soft and traditional, decorating with pink and green creates a pretty space for a baby girl.
Like a new spring day, a pink and green nursery looks fresh, happy and inviting. A popular combination, the two hues offer a variety of style options. Depending on which shade of colors used, you can create a room to satisfy almost any style from casual cottage to vintage chic to 20th century modern.
A Hot Pink and Lime Green Nursery
When putting together a nursery, parents are sometimes stuck because new flooring is too expensive or a rental contract prohibits painting. If you are lucky enough to start with neutral walls and floors, however, think about hot pink and lime green as nursery décor. The bright colors pop against a bland backdrop. Work with blocks of color for maximum impact.
- Mix-n-match bedding with stripes, solids, dots or flowers
- Striped window treatments
- Vibrant solid color baskets
If painting is an option, choose just one wall to saturate with color to serve as the focal point in the room. Paint a single color or use shades of both to create colorful stripes. Here are some paint choices to consider.

Light Pink and Green Nursery
A nursery with cottage style calls for lighter shades of pink and green such as rose and sage. The muted tones create a shabby chic feel and either color is a good choice for walls.

If you have money in the budget, consider adding architecture to the room with white beadboard wainscoting. A classic cottage choice, beadboard frames a nursery decorated with pretty accessories such as
- Floral-print bedding
- A slipcovered rocking chair or ruffled pillows for a family piece
- An antique rug
Furniture for a Pink and Green Nursery
Whether you go light or bright, there is one element in the room that stays the same in a pink and green nursery – white furniture. The clean color is a classic cottage choice, which is perfect for soft shades. It also does not take away from bolder hues. Depending on your color scheme, however, different styles of white nursery furniture may look better.
- Bright colors like hot pink and lime green work well with the streamlined shapes of modern furnishings.
- Vintage-style pieces with simple silhouettes and delicate details look better with paler colors.
It does not matter if it is fuchsia or salmon, lime or sea foam, a pink and green color scheme is a fantastic choice for a girl’s nursery.
