Blue. It’s a calm colour, much like a dad is often expected to be and when it comes to babies – and parenting- it is the colour typically associated with the masculine.

Blues, browns, and anything plaid.

Try this

If you are looking for a single color I am thinking dark brown. Dig around at the link above if you want to find a eye pleasing palette.

Deep colors. Such a Maroon, Forrest Green and Navy Blue.

Navy blue or perhaps British racing green

British racing green? What the? What kind of color is that?

I was just going to say plain ol’ green. Perhaps dark blues and browns.

LOL, yeah I can see how that looked ridiculous. I always called it hunter green until my friend corrected me.
