Soft ColorsYou’ll be spending a lot of time in the nursery, and it’s important to make sure that it’s a relaxing and quiet environment. Paint the walls a gentle color, like a soft yellow or pastel pink. Everyone will breathe a calm sigh when they walk into the room, and it will be a relaxing environment to spend time loving on your new baby. You can also combine neutral colors, like beige, white, or gray for a gender-neutral room that will still be a rejuvenating space for both you and baby.
Add a Comfy ChairRocking, feeding, and soothing your bundle of joy to sleep will take up most of your time spent at home, so make sure that you place a soft and comfortable rocking chair, glider, or reading chair in the room so you’ll have a place to sit. Don’t simply settle on the first one that you see. Make sure that you try out a few before you make your final selection.
HeirloomsFamily heirlooms are a great way to incorporate both families in the new baby’s room. Add some special photos, treasures, or mementos to a bookshelf or wall to for a touch of history. You can even add your own toys and stuffed animals that you may have saved for your future children to the room. If you don’t have any in your possession, ask family members if they would be willing to spare a family photo or memento for the baby’s space.
Add Accent PiecesThe new baby’s initial, a wedding photo, or artwork made by you or your husband will add to the space and accent it with color and design. Don’t be afraid to get creative and take on a big project. For example, if the room has a garden theme, add a wall of faux flowers or tree branches for texture and individuality. If you have an artistic edge, you can even paint a garden scene, complete with grass, butterflies, and trees for a beautiful mural to get lost in. Add a bright rug or lamp shade for more color and texture
