How to Decorate a Nursery
Decorating a nursery is a completely different experience to decorating any other room in the house as no other space has such a magical, whimsical quality to it. If you are decorating a nursery from scratch, we have everything you need to make the project a success.
Opt for a Colour Scheme with Staying Power
Decorating a nursery is tricky as babies turn into toddlers in the blink of an eye and decorating from scratch every few years is unappealing to most parents. For this reason, when choosing a colour theme for a nursery, choose shades that will look just a good now as they will do in three years. When picking out the perfect wallpaper, choose designs with staying power such as metallic stars, spots or geometric designs in pastel shades. Our Harlequin wallpaper is just one of our top picks for timeless nursery décor.
Create a Visually Stimulating Feature Wall
Both you and the baby will be spending a lot of time in this room during the early months and for this reason, it is wise to decorate the room with stimulating visuals in the form of murals. Our Adventure Wall Mural is a popular choice and will add an interesting focal point to your nursery in an instant. Our Disney themed murals are the perfect way to brighten up a room and adds lots of personality to a space. We are particularly fond of our Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh designs.
Add the Finishing Touches with Practical and Stylish Accessories
Once you have committed to a colour theme and decorated the walls to complement your theme, all that’s left is to add the finishing touches to your space with a few key accessories. A nursery should be a peaceful and tranquil space for both you and the baby and therefore too many accessories can make the room feel cluttered. Keep it simple with well chosen accessories that add to the functionality of the room. Our adorable rabbit table light is the perfect addition to any nursery providing a soft golden glow to the room while simultaneously adding to the room décor.
Lighting is an important aspect to consider when decorating a nursery. If you have kept the rest of the room décor simple, a playful design like this cloud ceiling light is a nice touch. For décor that will grow with your baby, our love light is a timeless piece.
