We tend to forgot about kids when we write our blog posts and in an effort not to alienate the little ones (or their parents) we’ve turned to nursery decorations today. As the weather is more of the tropical kind in the UK this week, we’ve gone for a safari theme. You can play it safe when you decorate your nursery and opt for muted, neutral tones, or you can go all out and inject a bit of colourful fun in your kid’s space (allegedly this stimulates the brain of the baby). You might not want to redecorate the nursery every other year, so make sure you go for something you like and think your little tot can enjoy for a while too. The transition from baby to toddler to kid to teenager mean that the room inevitably will change, but if you invest in some quality furniture it can go a long way.
Attention to detail is important and adding quirky details such as clocks, height measure stickers or bunting, gives the room an instant lift that can captivate your child’s imagination. These small touches are an easy way to update a room without getting carried away with trends, that quickly loose their charm.
Invest in good storage solutions as clothes, toys and books all need to find a home. There are plenty of imaginative bookcases and toy boxes on the market in all sorts of forms, shapes and colours. A chest of drawers and hanging hooks will help to keep the clutter away too, and will keep for years.
Although you can find a lot of funky wallpaper, it can make a room look small and distracting. Pick a thematic, colourful focal wall, a wallpaper border or paint murals, and you can go overboard on kaleidoscopic stuffed animals, picture frames and mobiles instead. You won’t get a better chance to release your inner child.
