Planning and decorating the nursery can be one of the more fun tasks to do when expecting a baby. But deciding on a look can be daunting as there’s so much to choose from. So today we’re going to take a look at some of the options available to you to create a lovely nursery for your newborn.
It’s a surprise – choose a neutral colour scheme
If you don’t want to know whether your baby’s going to be a boy or a girl, then it may discount the traditional blue or pink options. But there’s a range of neutral shades such as magnolia, latte, mocha and other pale brown hues that will be ideal whatever the gender of your child. They are also suitable colours for toddlers and older children so will last a long time if needed. But if you want something that’s aimed more at early years then take a look at nursery wallpaper. Typical designs include furry animals – rabbits, bears, mice and dogs.
It’s a surprise! (colourful colour scheme)
If neutral shades don’t excite you, then there are some great colours at the brighter end of the scale. Bright yellow, orange and lime green are suitable for both boys and girls, will look great in nurseries, but they are also in trend colours for this season. Again, to create a style that’s more specific to a young child’s nursery, combine these colours with zoo themed nursery wallpaper.
It’s a girl!
Pink has long been the colour associated with little girl’s nurseries. But there’s a range within this – from the simple, more traditional pale pinks to shades like fuchsia are more intense and modern in style. You can add detail to the look by using girls’ nursery wallpaper like princesses, fairies and butterflies. There are also wall murals. A brand like Walltastic offer murals of many popular children’s toys including Barbie and My Little Pony.
It’s a boy!
If you know you’re having a boy, then blue will be the obvious place to start. There are a big range of shades to consider. Baby blue and other pale shades will create a calm, relaxed nursery, but they can also make the room feel a little cold. A solution to this is to use a shade of pale blue that has been warmed up with a touch of grey, or use some boys’ nursery wallpaper to add some different colours to the walls.
Whether your baby is a boy or a girl, and whether you want to opt for traditional colour schemes or something a bit different, there are colours and wall effects available.
