Beautiful Baby Bedrooms: Ideas for the perfect nursery
If you're expecting then nursery decorating is quite possibly something you have thought about. Whether you're a first time mum or already have children, decorating a nursery or organising a space for your new arrival should be a really exciting and enjoyable process. Here are a few ideas for creating the perfect nursery for your newborn.
Ceiling colour - Consider painting the ceiling as oppose to the walls, this look with the addition of some ceiling stars is both tasteful and tranquil. In a bright room painting the ceiling evokes a lovely, cosy feeling in the space.
Snug seating - create a cosy space for you and your baby during those night time feeds. Optimise comfort with soft furnishings and textiles, such as rugs, throws and cushions as well as something like an ottoman that you can put your feet up on.
Changing Area Gallery - Changing areas should first and foremost be functional and have ample storage for nappies and all the lotions and potions you need. But why not make it a little decorative with some cute artwork, teeny tiny mirrors and even a hanger with your babies first outfit - a lovely way to hold onto sentimental pieces when they've grown out of them.
A blanket ladder display- This is a really simple but clever way of storing blankets and towels where they will be both decorative and practical - being at easy reach and saving the need for rummaging through drawers.
Wall art - This is a gorgeous, example of contemporary wall art for infants. The pastel colours are perfect and I love the triangle prints on the wall and those cute cushions! I can also see this room being very easy to adapt for an older child or toddler.
Storage - Because babies come with lots and lots of stuff, storage is key. There are so many ways to make their clothes storage look adorable, like the clever use of this Ikea shelf in the display below.
Cool cots & cradles - Cots and cradles are a great place to invest, particularly because they can be passed on to siblings or to friends and family. Spending time researching to find a style that you like or if you're lucky enough to know someone in the furniture making business getting something bespoke made is a particularly lovely idea.
Sweet Shelving - Shelving doesn't have to be boring and can be such a nice way of displaying baby gifts and keepsakes. These simple house shape shelves are a lovely touch.
Do you have a baby on the way? Or have you decorated a nursery and want to share your tips? As I'm not mother myself, I'm sure there's lots of other words of wisdom that I haven't even thought of, so if you have any pointers for new mums when it comes to nursery design I'd love any thoughts or tips you have.
