Color of the Month: Lemon Chiffon

By PBK Editors


Bring the bright warmth of summer into your nursery with sunny shades of yellow, pink and aqua, paired with bold prints and intricate details. To start, we love Sherwin-Williams Lemon Chiffon SW 6686 – it’s cheery and fun with just the right amount of softness. Here are five of our favorite ways to complement this summertime shade.

1. Cozy up each day for story time by choosing a favorite book from our Ava Regency Bookcase – just the right size for a few favorite reads.

2. A set of airy sheers layered with beautifully embroidered blackout panels offers floor-to-ceiling style for naptime and starry nights.

3. Your little one is the definition of joy – and this Baby Sentiment Plaque spells it all out.

4. The Moroccan-inspired print in our Claudia Nursery Bedding ties the room together with beautiful color and elegant details.

5. Keep the nursery tidy with a Large Silver Basket that’s big enough for toys, plush friends or spare blankets – and stands as a design element all its own.

Take a look at the brilliant colors of sea life in The Rainbow Fish, and follow along as little ones learn about sharing and friendship.


For adventurous kids learning to spell their names, try My Very Own Pirate Tale where a group of children seek out a treasure chest.


Fall into a world of fantasy with the classic tale of Where the Wild Things Are. Take a journey with Max to a land of goofy monsters and whimsical dreams.
