Decorating a baby room is a wonderful opportunity to create a carefree
hideaway - a place of slumber and lullabies.
BABY ROOM THEMES
From Tropical Jungle to Noah's Ark, Teddy Bears to Winnie the Pooh:
There are many delightful baby room themes to choose from - any one will
spark enthusiasm and generate exciting nursery decorating ideas.
But decorating the baby room can be daunting: There's so much choice -
nursery bedding sets, furnishings, nursery wall décor and accessories
of all kinds! Also young children can soon outgrow even the most
enchanting baby room themes.
Co-ordinated nursery bedding sets and matching accessories can make
easy work of decorating a baby room, ensuring nursery décor is effective
But mixing and matching presents the opportunity for more imaginative
nursery decorating ideas - and it's fun! The key to success with 'mix
and match' nursery décor is to select elements - baby nursery pictures,
fabrics and accessories - that share color and pattern elements.
Basing nursery décor on neutral wall and floor coverings enables
endless variations: Keeping baby room decorating ideas flexible makes it easy
to adapt to a young child's developing interests.
By changing just the accessories - nursery bedding sets, pictures and
rugs - different nursery decorating ideas can be developed without all
the upheaval of a major redecorating project. For a while, at least,
baby room themes can grow with your child!
Young children love bright primary colors but large areas can be
overwhelming. Decorating the baby room with a subtle, calm color scheme is
usually a better choice.
Introducing warm colors - rose, peach or primrose - into your baby room
decorating ideas will help create a feeling of coziness.
While decorating the baby room with the cool colors - aqua, mint or sky
blue - can create a feeling of spaciousness. But it is probably best to
keep ideas based on this color range for a room with a warm, sunny
Touches of bright primary colors bring extra interest and visual
stimulation. Introducing just small amounts with baby nursery pictures,
nursery bedding sets, toys and accessories can transform a room. These are
the finishing touches that can bring nursery décor alive!
NURSERY WALL DÉCOR
From a series of framed art prints to big cheerful posters, a collage
of birthday cards to giant stick-ups - nursery wall décor can create an
interesting focus and highlight of color.
A special picture may provide inspiration for some great baby nursery
ideas and the basis for a subtle color scheme.
Pictures can be used to develop baby room themes, giving them added
dimension: Baby nursery pictures of animals can extend a Tropical Jungle
theme - Paddington Bear pictures a Teddy Bear theme.
Look for baby nursery pictures that you find inspiring - they can be a
valuable source for interesting nursery decorating ideas. But, best of
all, good nursery wall décor will help to create a special place that
excites whimsical fantasy and imaginative storytelling - the essence of
a magical childhood!
