'Winnie the Pooh' decor: Paint color scheme ideas

A "Winnie the Pooh" theme works great in a baby nursery, or in a toddler's bedroom. It is a nice, neutral Disney-type theme for either a little boy or a girl. Are you hoping to decorate your child's room in a Pooh theme? Start out by choosing your color scheme. You might want to choose an inspiration piece and pull your colors from that object, rather than to start from scratch. There are hundreds of "Winnie the Pooh" pieces available for your child's bedroom.

Color ideas for a baby girl

You can easily incorporate the color pink into a Pooh nursery for your little girl. Look for pink blankets, sheets, curtains and wall decor that have your favorite "Pooh" characters on them. Use a light, pastel pink as your main color to help soothe your baby to sleep. Accent the room with soft, buttery yellow hues. If you are not the girly type, pair other pastel hues together, or decorate the room in a gender-neutral color scheme (learn more below).

Color ideas for a baby boy

Blue is the traditional color of choice for a boy's bedroom. Decorate your baby boy's nursery or bedroom in a range of blues, complete with Winnie the Pooh motifs emblazoned on the decor. Complement the boyish hue with earthy colors, such as brown and green. Not everything should have Pooh-inspired patterns; rather, pair patterned decor with solid colors to give the eyes a break.

Gender neutral color schemes

There are more gender-neutral color schemes than there are girl or boy colors when it comes to decorating with a Pooh theme. Just pick any color from inspirational pieces. Pastel green and purple look great together when accented with a little yellow. They don't just look good with Winnie the Pooh motifs, but they are soothing colors for a gender-neutral nursery. Another color scheme idea includes the use of brown and tan, along with other muted hues, such as sage green.
