Nursery Decorating Ideas: Creating a Timeless Retreat' - Articles Surfing
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 d'cor 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 d'cor is effective and harmonious.
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 d'cor is to select elements - baby nursery pictures, fabrics and accessories - that share color and pattern elements.
Basing nursery d'cor 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 aspect.
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 d'cor alive!
NURSERY WALL D'COR'
From a series of framed art prints to big cheerful posters, a collage of birthday cards to giant stick-ups - nursery wall d'cor 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 d'cor will help to create a special place that excites whimsical fantasy and imaginative storytelling - the essence of a magical childhood!
