If you are expecting the stork to pay a visit to your family in the near future, chances are you are thinking of the perfect nursery for your new baby.
Perhaps you are looking for something unique - something that isn’t found in every baby store. When you use your imagination, the creative possibilities are endless. From custom quilts to hand-painted wall murals, you can dream up some fun and exciting possibilities for your little one’s room that can last well beyond infancy.
First, you’ll want to come up with a theme. If you know it’s a boy and your family loves boating, that’s a great theme. For a girl whose family loves animals, try a puppy, kitten, or jungle motif. What do you do if you are waiting to be surprised by your bundle of joy’s gender? How about a circus theme- a big- top tent on the ceiling with circus characters on the walls.
You will be amazed at the designer fabrics available for customizing your baby’s room. It’s important to know that there are hundreds of fabrics that interior decorators offer which you won’t see in retail stores.
If you are hoping to achieve unique walls, but don’t wish to contract an artist for an elaborate wall mural, you may find just what you’re looking for among the designer wall coverings. From hot air balloons to teddy bears, crayons, to cats and dogs, the options are endless. And the new wall adhesives are great ideas, too. These wonderful pieces of children’s art stick to the wall without damaging the paint or wall-covering surface, so they peel up neatly years later.
When selecting colors for the nursery, it’s so easy to be tempted by those dreamy, gentle pastels. Remember, however, that babies love black and white, as well as bright primary colors. Of course, you will be spending many hours around the clock in that nursery, so be certain that you, as well as the baby, enjoy the outcome of the room.
No matter what themes or colors you choose in the nursery, you will spend some precious moments in there with your little one. These are memories that you’ll treasure for the rest of your life so, above all, put a lot of love into decorating it, and you will have created the perfect lullaby land for your baby.
