Decorating Your Nursery

So you’ve got a baby on the way and a nice comfy place for him/her to stay when that special day arrives, but what sorts of decorations and color schemed are appropriate for a newborn, and what role does gender play in the decor? Never fear, we here at Baby Naturale have a few suggestions to get your nursery looking tip top so your newest family member is sure to feel welcome and comfortable in his or her surroundings.

The first thing to think about is color schemes and wall decorations. The traditional choice is, of course, blue for boys and pink for girls. Many people now feel that such choices may be undesirable and result in the reinforcement of stereotypes, but it is important to remember that several hundred years ago blue was understood as pertaining to girls. This just goes to show the transient nature of such trends. Of course, one can avoid this whole quagmire by simply going for a gender neutral color like yellow. Just remember that babies typically like bright, contrasting colors, as they offer them greater stimulation than tasteful grays and beiges. With this in mind, you may want to consider a patterned wallpaper as opposed to a flat paint job. This also allows you to help encourage your child towards certain interests such as books or animals.

Then there’s the matter of furniture. A sturdy crib is essential, but you’ll also want to consider more decorative items, such as mobiles and clocks. Babies love anything with moving parts, and items such as these afford a great opportunity to personalize your baby’s room. And if picking up all these items separately seems like too much of a headache, you can always choose one of our Trend Lab nursery collections. They come with all the decor you’ll need in a wide variety of styles that are sure to please even the fussiest of infants.
