Interior Design Hermanus ~ Nursery Decor
Designing a baby’s nursery is an exciting and fulfilling interiors project. The room needs to function as a peaceful haven for the baby to sleep, as a stimulating area for play and learning and as a space that can adapt to the needs of a growing child.
The most important aspect of nursery design is purchasing the correct equipment and furniture. A cot and changing table are key purchases while a rocking chair, baby swing and wardrobe or chest of drawers are useful too. Many parents find that adding a spare bed to the nursery is a helpful addition. Try not to crowd the nursery with too much furniture as you want to leave some floor space for the baby to learn to crawl and walk. A dimmer switch is an essential basic and very handy for creating a peaceful ambience.
Colourwise, nowadays not everyone wants to go down the standard baby blue and pastel pink route when planning their nursery scheme – time has moved on and bold colours are a wonderful contemporary option. Not only are they uplifting and fun but because newborns can see dark and light contract best which is stimulating for them.
If you prefer your colour palette more neutral then yellow, brown and green are all great gender neutral choices that can be accentuated with other bold hues.An earthy chocolate brown mixed with calming blues and greens is a warm and comforting combination and blue is no longer just for boys. For a stunning girl’s room a strong shade of blue such as azure mixed with pink is very dramatic and modern while the traditional nursery color yellow can be livened up with a shot of hot pink. Alternativiely wallpaper or a large graphic print can add a lot of style to a modern nursery.
