If you are having a baby, you have no doubt muddled through aisles and catalog pages filled with cribs, basinets, changing tables, and baby linens. Many parents are pleased with the selection of cartooned themed designs for baby furniture and accessories, and they delight in decorating a pastel colored room filled with animal characters or baby motifs. Others though feel that these themed rooms are an impractical expense. Chances are, when your baby is a few years older, they will prefer to choose their own design for their surroundings. Even if that is not the case, it can get tiring spending time in a cartoon themed room. Instead of choosing something that will only work in a child’s room for a year or two, consider creating a timeless design with elegance and class. A nursery can be a bright, comfortable space even without the pastels and baby animals. You can add special features such as picture lights above the frames with a special painting or artwork. A picture light will draw attention to family photos, helping a child feel loved and become familiar with relatives and loved ones. They are also fantastic for making artwork pop in a room. If you have hung photos in frames on the wall, you want them to be an area of attraction in the room so you and your baby can enjoy them.
Another way to create a classic nursery is to opt for colors that are not associated only with a baby. All too often, babies end up sleeping in a sea of pastels. Paint is not that difficult to change, but it can take days to paint a room and reassemble the furniture and accessories.
Instead of using pinks and blues, go with a more classic color and plan to accent with the traditional baby colors. Imagine how timeless a room would look with a neutral shade of paint like soft gray or warm beige, accented with pale blue linens and bedding.
Opting for furniture in darker hues creates a warm feel, or you can brighten up the space by using light oak or birch furniture. You can also use flooring to change the feel of the room. Try area rugs on hardwood for easy cleaning. This way you can make changes to the flooring color scheme and allow the look to change with the other accessories.
By choosing non-traditional colors in a nursery, you can create a soft, comfortable space that is comfortable for baby and parents.
