Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
On October 3, Argington, maker of nursery furniture sets, comments on a recent post on ChicagoTribune.com interviewing Marika Meyer, an interior designer and expectant mother, on her views regarding the changing trends of nursery decorating and her challenges decorating gender neutral bedrooms.
According to the ChicagoTribune.com article, Meyer says, “These days, neutrals are the new pink and blue. Parents don't want to compromise the home's sophistication just because there are children in it. Keeping the walls neutral allows them to have both."
ChicagoTribune.com also interviewed Sonu Mathew, designer for Benjamin Moore Paints, who believes that “gender-neutral paint choices are part of a larger cultural movement that allows children more creative freedom.” Mathew adds, “Before World War II, trends in fashion and design pointed to boys wearing pink just as quickly as girls would wear blue. So today, we're going back into that space where things are more level." Mathew goes on to describe yellow as “optimistic, energetic and confident, which are all very important words for children.”
Newell Turner, editor-in-chief for House Beautiful Magazine, suggested during the interview that there is a subtle psychological tie-in to color selection, reports ChicagoTribune.com. Turner responds to Mathew’s statement describing yellow as “the most versatile gender-neutral color there is."
Argington spokesman Clay Darrohn comments, “No matter what the trends in decorating for baby bedrooms happens to be, Argington furniture is suitable for just about every décor. We pride ourselves on creating pieces that can fit in any room and that will be an attractive option for any designer or expectant parent. Trends will change, color choices will come and go, but our furniture is designed to withstand those trends and the test of time.”
