Spring conjures images wonderful images of flowers, sunshine, and babies in strollers. Since some of you are no doubt in the baby way, we thought we’d share some of our favorite nurseries.
Maybe you’ve heard the argument that babies can see certain colors and shapes better. Some say to decorate with black and white, some say red and yellow, but I came across some research lately that stated that while some babies are able to distinguish different shapes and colors as early as 2 weeks of age, it’s hard to say if they have a preference about anything besides eating, sleeping, and being cuddled.
That means that you are free to use any colors and patterns you’d like in your nursery as long as there’s something visually stimulating to look at in the crib, on the wall, or on the ceiling. Feel better? I thought you might.
These next rooms use wall decals to provide some visual fodder for the imagination. If you are in need of a few good ideas, check out etsy. There are endless options and colors and patterns available and might give you some excellent ideas while you’re in the planning phase of your room. Warning: etsy is addictive.
These rooms are sweet. Just a little art on the wall makes all the difference. Did you see the orange snail?
This wall is brilliant. You can always change it up and when baby can walk around, he’ll love writing on the walls. The only drawback I can see with this is that I wouldn’t want a lot of chalk dust around baby’s lungs. But put this in a playroom…Bingo.
Another great idea: paint the ceiling! Baby will be staring off into oblivion anyway in his comfy crib so you might as well give him something fun to look at while practicing focusing his eyes.
And while I wouldn’t consider these baby rooms…they’re fit for any toddler and pretty stinkin’ cool.
