If you love decorating, there’s nothing more exciting than decorating a room for your new baby. Whether it’s a boy or a girl, you can create a great nursery with colorful paints, fabrics, wall coverings and decorative accessories that are fun and inspiring.
When designing a nursery or child’s room, you can let your creative side take control. The more colorful and whimsical, the more your child will like it, especially as he/she grows into adolescence. The interior style of the room doesn’t have to match the rest of the house, so you can let your imagination be your guide. Here are some inspiring decorating ideas that your child will love.
If you have some artistic abilities, paint a beautiful mural on the walls or ceiling. Start with the mural since it will be the focal point, then decorate around it with coordinating colors, fabrics and accessories. If you’re having a girl, create a mural with fairies, butterflies or flowers. For a boy’s room, consider trucks and cars, boats or zoo animals. If your mural is light and airy, you can paint sections on all four walls, but if it’s bold with lots of intricate details, it’s better to paint just one accent wall or the ceiling.
If you’re a sports buff, consider a sports theme for your child’s room. It doesn’t really matter if your newborn is male or female, just decorate using more masculine or feminine color schemes and accessories. You can find themed throw pillows, blankets and quilts for the bed and adorable accessories like cuddly teddy bears, picture frames and lamps for the room. If you’re a die-hard fan, it’s easy to find fun outfits and phillies baby clothes with logos of your favorite sports team.
If you want to create a whimsical playhouse, think about that old tree house you had when you were a kid. Think apple trees, song birds, lazy days and happy thoughts that will inspire your child’s imagination. Paint one or two walls with chalkboard paint which gives your child a place to draw anything they imagine on the walls. To keep the drawings on the chalkboard paint, frame the walls with moulding in a contrasting color. This will let your child know which walls to draw on. When they want to create a new picture, just wipe the old one off the wall with a damp sponge.
