You know how important contrast and pattern are to baby, add impact where baby notices most – the ceiling. Babies love to be rocked to sleep. And adults don’t mind the soothing effect of rocking, either. Why not rock baby to sleep by using a hanging chair or cool, contemporary rocker?
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.”
When deciding on your baby’s nursery theme, be bold and fully commit to your theme. Use elements of the theme on the walls, in the accessories and the rest of the decor. That’s what makes so many of the featured nursery ideas in the featured gallery so appealing. Find creative ways to display baby’s name in their room. Some ideas include: Framed letters on the wall. Monogrammed sheets or pillows. Accessories with baby’s initials or name. Baby’s name in marquis light-up letters that double as a night light.
Select modular furniture that can be used beyond the first year. Many crib styles nowadays convert into children’s beds, while changing tables are often a regular dresser with a detachable dressing table top. And don’t forget to add fun elements to a nursery like a tent or animal rocking horse that baby can use as he/she grows into a toddler.
