Oh, Baby! 12 Ideas to Get a Chic Nursery Rolling

There’s a good deal of chatter about babies recently — summer and spring are popular baby birthing months. In case you’re dreaming about your nursery and looking for new ideas, this can be for you.

I really like to decorate nurseries with an older baby in mind, because the newborn months are these a blink. I try to stay away from newborn-specific themes and go with something that will work for 0 to 5 years of age.

In case your baby bump is getting bigger and you have no idea how to start your nursery design, relax, breathe and put your feet up — I’ve constructed a few ideas that will get you started and prepared in time. Choose your favorites as starting points and only build from there.

1. Begin with a fun background pattern. A nursery can clearly pull more whimsy than most other rooms. Locate a fun layout and paper the entire room or just one wall. Build on the pattern by adding complementary colours or art.

2. Go bold with geometric patterns. White walls are kicked into high gear with powerful colours and geometric patterns from the rug and art. Babies’ developing eyes are attracted to high colour contrast.

3. Choose a exceptional overhead light. That I really like this oversize light fixture above the comfy chair. Allow the light fixture set the palette and vibe of this nursery.

Hint: Get the coziest chair you can find. You may spend more time there than you understand.

4. Throw in an oversize stuffed animal to set a playful tone. I remember when my now-teenage daughter was a baby. She had a giant bear that she affectionately called B. Her first words were “Mama,” “Daddy,” “ball” and “bear.”

5. Allow the palette create the theme. Pick a couple of colours and replicate them throughout the room. Splash colour in unexpected places like drape trim, rugs and art.

6. Make an accent wall. Highlighting a wall is fun and practical once you’re being cautious about prices. Accent walls can be created using paint, wallpaper or art.

7. Place all of the pattern in your drapes. Move with a big baby-inspired pattern on the curtains and leave the rest of the room neutral.

8. Consider horizontal stripes. A pattern of horizontal stripes in fun colours sets a tone of fun and expands even the smallest of spaces. Furniture, rugs and fabrics can be tied into the stripes.

9. Dress up the ceiling in Addition to the area. Babies spend a great deal of time in their backs looking up. Heal the whole room as a giant mobile by hanging paper lanterns, parasols or series lights.

10. Include art pieces that have words and letters as well as images. I hung word art over the table in my house, to educate words during every diaper change.

11. Use clothing as accessories. Hang hooks on the walls and exhibit cute baby outfits. Open hooks and shelves make hats and clothes simple to get.

12. Repeat a blueprint. Locate a pattern and replicate it on mattress bedding, drapes, chairs and art. Repeating a pattern is a whimsical look in itself, thus there is no requirement for much else from the nursery — that can be beneficial if you are short on space.
