Are you welcoming a new baby into your life? Here are some fun and easy nursery decorating ideas to consider.
Whether you own your home or are renting there are ways to make your babies’ new room stylish and perfect for your life.
1. The Unisex Room
Unisex color schemes are all the rage in nurseries these days. This versatile décor can serve as your nursery for all of your children instead of assigning a traditional gender color scheme. Orange is very neutral and extremely popular. By using a plain white palate for your walls the possibilities are limitless. Splash up the room with a tailored color centered carpet choice and one central focal piece such as the chevron striped chair featured here. A one toned, bold color choice is classy and fun. This can readily be used for your child’s room as they grow up by replacing the crib with a bed.
2. Central Bassinet Beauty
If you are into making your child’s nursery very specifically gender themed check out this design. The bassinette is featured in the middle of the room. The placement is not traditional but since a bassinette does not have corners it flows in the middle with the hanging chandelier to center this configuration. The wallpapered ceiling in a toile style print accented with simple crown molding is a stunning effect. This furniture placement choice lends more wall space for built-ins and sitting space.
3. Baby Be Simple
This idea centers the nursery theme on the accent rug. The colors are subdued but rich tones throughout the room. Adding the fancy chandelier puts the finishing touch of elegance in this room. Hanging an odd number of pendant lights to highlight the changing area is not traditional but really sophisticated. This room invites the occupant in to be lathered in luxury but bathed in simple elegance. One faux finish accent wall really becomes the focal point and draws your eye to focus on where baby will be.
4. Wimsical Schwimsical
If whimsical is your style try something with a simple twist of whimsy but do not get too crazy with it. The toy box bench becomes your central theme. Arrange some of your childhood classic favorite stuffed animal friends. And a great hand painted tree of life and growth dressing up your focal point wall is inviting. Baby’s crib can be neat and clean with a custom matched quilt designed for him/her to keep forever. This whole look is tied together with a very cute rug gracing the middle of the room.
5. Rainbow Baby
Rainbows and planets oh my! If you love bright colors you can add pops of rainbow fun to a contemporary crib with a neutral but bold grey accent wall. This wall blends in but is rich and alluring all at the same time. Put grandma to work crocheting baby an heirloom afghan in your favorite array of rainbow colors for a magical and bold pop to drape over baby’s new age crib. Touches of old mixed with new are always a hit. Hanging a mobile style, fun planet combo will not only stimulate baby’s mind but it is darling and brings the whole room swirling together. Tissue balls are super easy to make and really inexpensive. Hanging just a couple gives the “je ne sais quois” that completes this nursery look.
6. Little Boy Blue Room
From the stars and the moon to counting sheep this very blue room just screams “We had a boy!”, doesn’t it? Blue is a favorite nursery color and is proven to be a mood enhancing color. Calm any baby with this new age blue tone. Pick a blue that is not traditional but is bright and happy and stage your room around your unique accent wallpaper. Because the wallpaper is rather busy the rest of your décor choices can and should be simple and easy to find. Doing a coordinating border of suns and moons is genius and just helps the boldness of the wallpaper really resonate with the rest of this simple but beautiful décor. Think Blue, blue, blue, boy, boy, boy!
7. Monotone Madness
Ahhhhh, monotone beauty. Tan is soothing and simple. When you walk into this nursery you just feel clean and calm. Take your simple yet elegant crib and build from there. Tan is a great theme color to splash around a room because it is easy to find and in varying shades it is just simply stunning. This look is very gender neutral and easy to convert to a guest room. Add to the look with a whimsical vinyl buzzing bee on the wall and hang your sweet baby’s blessing gown and you are done.
8. Perfect Little Princess
Bring your precious princess home to this nursery that says ” Girl,girl,girl” all the way. Be creative and bold and center your crib in the middle of the room on top of a great faux polar bear rug. The rug makes the room feel warm and cozy. Donning the wall with an intricately beautiful princess mirror and a glamorous chandelier follows through with this princess style of the room. The soft pink accents bring this whole décor together with one perfectly placed border to top of your main wall.
9. The Muted Marvel
Boy or girl any baby will do in this muted marvel. Grey toned taupe is a hot topic for 2016. Be up with the times and choose tones that invite you in to rock your sweet little one ‘til the day is long. A crib in the center of the room might not be your first choice but it is becoming more popular and centering it just right with a fabulous neutral rug is a look that hits the spot. This room makes you feel full and complete and is versatile. The chevron tiled flooring is the piece de la resistance of this look finished with another elegant chandelier to draw your eye to the reason for this room, your baby.
10. Downtown Brown
Downtown Brown is the new look in town. When you live in an apartment and you are having your first child maybe you don’t think a wonderful themed room is easy to achieve? This look can come straight from Target but is beautiful and fun. Grab matching baby crib bedding and curtains and a fun solid children’s reading chair, some matching canvas baskets and go to town. You can jazz up any room and be ready for baby even on a small budget or in a very neutral apartment. Brown is the up and coming hot color for 2016. With this theme the circles and the squares in the print bring brown into the 21st century.
