Decorating a Babies Nursery...



You just found out you are going to be a mommy.  Well Congratulations!!!  
You have many things running thru your mind.  Whether it is going to be a boy or girl, you want it to be healthy, what color eyes, what do I need and "OMG HOW DO I DECORATE THE NURSERY???"  

Well here are just a few suggestions that hopefully can help you out. 
When decorating your babies nursery, people always tend to think that the only option is to go to your local paint store and just paint the walls a solid color.  Well know that there are other options too.


Just because you paint the walls, does not mean that all the walls need to be the same color.  You can have a base color but either do it yourself or hire an artist to paint a mural.  This picture is of when my girls were born.  While pregnant, I painted this tree for the nursery, as painting is not only relaxing for me but I felt as if she knew I was doing something special for her and then after I truly knew it was well worth it when I had my other little girl who also LOVED there room.  I wanted a Winnie The Pooh theme at the time, so I decided to paint  a tree in the corner.  But I wanted to add some 3 dimensional elements and painted some pieces of wood with Winnie The Poohs friends name on them along with hot gluing some fabric butterflies to the tree and on the walls.  I added some other touches and even incorporate a quote that I loved when I saw it once at Walt Disney World.  I remember even painting the top of the bedroom ceiling with a sky and stars.  It was just something that I truly enjoyed painting especially knowing it was for my little girls.


Now if you worry about having a mural painted or cannot afford it another option is to use wall paper.  One can always try to pick a wall paper that will last for several years, hopefully into there teenage years because once they hit the teens, we all know how there mind will change along with the hormones...Lol    Below is a picture of a bedroom utilizing wall paper.  This wall paper can definitely last for many years as it is neutral and you can combine it with many colors from bright to calming tones.



And if wall paper does not work for you either, you can always shop online and purchase some wall decals.  The good thing about the wall decals is that they are easily removable once your child would like to make a change to the room.  Plus they tend to be inexpensive, depending on the size and the design.  And if you truly want to get creative, you can locate a print shop and design your own and apply them to the wall.  You just need to check and be sure the print shop can do such type of work.  If not, you can always rely on Google and shop around.  For example, etsy.com always has great artists.  Just remember to always try to check there credentials.  Below is a picture of a bedroom that used decals purchased on stickerbrand.com.



And last, if the mural, wall paper or decals is not something that you would like to use.  You can always just purchase some prints and turn a wall into a gallery wall making it the main focus of the bedroom.  And just because you create a gallery wall does not mean that your background wall has to be a solid color, it can be from solid to stripes to even poca dots.  Whatever you feel would make a happy and positive environment for your baby.



I hope one of these suggestions will make it easier for any mommy out there!!!
Enjoy Decorating!!!
