The nursery is your newborn's first room, his own little world: environment,which in part will influence and shape his personality. As a parent your goal is to provide a surrounding that is comfortable, secure, inviting and cozy.
A functional, safe and stimulating environment precedes aesthetic needs. Here is one illustration for decorating a boy's nursery. Instead of restricting color to a single monotonous tone, a variety of bright blues, yellows, reds, pinks and green were selected. According to studies, introduction to bright colors and shapes help stimulate babies' imaginations. The inspiration for this nursery was derived from adorable multi-colored hand hooked rug with animals and alphabets. The animals on rug provided a theme for room and formed central focus for design.These motifs play off animal mobile overhead, crib bedding, pillows and other accessories.
The furniture was kept simple. The entertainment center from Pier One Imports used as an armoire is practical, inexpensive and most importantly has ample storage. Built in cabinets conceal clutter, help organization and present a neat tidy look. Both armoire and cabinet are excellent long-term choices not restricted to age and can be used as child grows. These furniture items with simple white distressed finish complement varied kids of décor can be alternately used in another room.
Safety precedes any other aesthetic element. The crib and bassinet should be ideally positioned in an area that is away from objects like windows, draperies, blinds
