Given that the nursery is where your child will spend most of their time, it’s quite important to make it look right. Far from oblivious to the world around them, babies actually react to colors, shapes, and the atmosphere of their surroundings, and having the right kind of decor can be incredibly soothing. A colorful room will also amuse them and encourage creativity, but having too many elements can make it feel claustrophobic and loud. So, how can a parent decorate a room and make it look beautiful enough to charm their little bundles of joy? Well, we’ve got a few great ideas right here, so if you’re in the mood to get inspired by some gorgeous things, read on.
Come on, what’s cuter than a baby in a little sailor outfit? A lovely, gender-neutral choice that lets you utilize fun blue and white stripes, and various patterns – seashells, anchors, ships, and the marine life! If you want, you can incorporate a dash of red here and there to break the monotony and give even more visual interest.
Dove grey and white chevron pattern
Blue and pink are hardly the only choices parents have to decorate their baby’s bedroom, and soft shades of dove grey and white can be paired to give you a room that is bright, calming, and that’s perfect for those who wish to avoid any loud colors. A chevron-patterned pram blanket, a rocking chair with grey cushions, white wallpaper with delicate little bird patterns, and perhaps some yellow here and there if you think the room needs a little more fun.
Gold polka dots on pram blankets
For the child that you just know is going to grow up to be fabulous one day, for those who want that pink dream feeling with just a tiny dose of fashionable fun, we suggest subtle gold details on lush pink shades. A stylish coral pink with golden polka dots looks downright stunning, and you can grab a couple of cute pram blankets with this pattern and use them both for the crib and the rocking chair. The rest of the room can be in a simple white color if you don’t want to make it feel overwhelming, but details such as these will serve to transform the room and bring style to the decor.
Soothing aqua walls
Aqua blue paired with light-colored wood is a great choice for parents who want a dose of retro in the room, and it’s a versatile pick that later lets you upgrade it and change it up. For example, throw on some floral curtains and cushions around and it has a nice spring vibe, or add some orange ornaments and blankets, or maybe pick darker grey details paired with white-painted wood for a completely classic look.
Lilac and yellow bedding
Lilac flowers with yellow details are a great choice of a pattern, but you could also stick to solid colors and make the bedding and the cushions a soft purple shade and then add a few yellow details as a contrast. We like both all-white and dark wood to go with this sassy little combo, and it’s a pretty nice choice for parents who are seeking something light-hearted, breezy, and generally really cheerful. A lush lilac carpet also wouldn’t go amiss, and you could also leave some room sun-shaped wall ornaments and make the room look like a very happy place. Play some soothing music and the sounds of birds chirping and your child will feel like they’re spending every day in nature.
Surround your child with colors, surround them with details that inspire them to think of nature, of positive things, of having fun. Pick the decor that you think suits the kind of personality you want them to develop and don’t worry – you can always change things up later on. Enjoy these little decor ideas, we hope they help you create a beautiful nursery for your baby.
