Good news for modern design lovers, soft pastels are not the best nursery choice. According to parenting guru Dr. Sears: “The best way you as a parent can stimulate baby’s vision is using black and white stripes or light and dark contrasting colors. So what about those nice soft pastels that used to be so popular in baby toys and nurseries? While these may look pretty to you, they do nothing visually for your baby. Research has proven that black and white contrasts register powerfully on baby’s retina and send the strongest visual signals to baby’s brain. Stronger signals mean more brain growth and faster visual development.”
You need to know what you’re searching for when it comes to a nursery: a perfectly balanced color palette or a joyful mix of materials and textures? Will your crib be placed in the middle of the room or will it rest under a dreamy canopy? From details like the choice of whether buying organic baby bedding to which baby boy or baby girl nursery curtains should you choose, everything can be designed by a talented interior designer to make sure what you want is also what you need.
Adults tend to spend time in baby’s nursery getting baby to sleep or watching over baby. Incorporate comfortable seating like a sofa or a daybed that encourages nap time for mom and dad, too. It’s incredible how many things a small baby needs. Create a combination of easy storage, like cabinets, baskets and drawers where clutter can be easily stored, with beautiful, modern open storage like a bookcase wall to display your baby’s favorite keepsakes.
And black and white are not the only colors that babies are attracted to. Any bold, contrasting colors in graphic patterns will work. Great places to include pattern are: a wallpaper or mural wall. upholstery and other textiles. an area rug.
