When you’re expecting a new baby, one of the most exciting parts of it all can be decorating the nursery ready to welcome your new bundle to the home. We love checking out new nursery designs and we even have a whole board devoted to it on Pinterest– a place where we can indulge in one of our favourite past times without having to lift a muscle!
Today there are lots of ways that you can make your baby’s nursery stand out and look amazing, and themes are very popular right now. Before you start, think about the colours that you want to use and whether or not you want that to be your theme, or whether you want to go for something more specific. We’ve seen some wonderful pink rooms for girls, and a superb dark walled nursery theme collection including one with blackboard paint all over one wall in the room. Remember that colours can play a huge part in the feel of a room too, so try not to go for anything too bright- cool, soothing colours that are muted tend to be best for very young babies as it is said they can help to calm and aid sleep. Brighter colours can stimulate babies.
When you place furniture in the room, make sure you do so carefully. Never place cots near heaters or windows, and keep other furniture away so that older babies cannot use them to climb. Keep beds clear of loose bedding and toys and always ensure heavy objects are secured to the walls.
We’ve been virtually shopping at Mamas and Papas today to bring you our Rainbow themed nursery. What do you think?
We love the bright colours in this set, but we wouldn’t want too many so we’d keep the walls neutral for this look. Too many bright colours can be distracting for young babies and we don’t want to disrupt sleep if we can help it! We added a border for the walls to provide a splash of colour and teamed that with fairly muted curtains that keep the rainbow theme with brightly coloured tabs.
A brightly coloured rug on the floor can provide the ideal cushioning for some tummy time, and we couldn’t resist the beautiful rainbow stars fitted bed sheets either. This nursery look is finished with brightly coloured bunting and we think it looks fab!
