When you bring home your new bundle of joy, you’ll want to make sure that the nursery is a relaxing and comforting place for her to sleep and play. Here are some decorating ideas for the walls, windows, floor and accessories to help you create a cozy and stylish room for a baby girl.
Paint the Walls
Begin your decorating process by selecting a color to paint the nursery walls. If you are not sure what hue will look best in the room, you can browse through a Benjamin Moore Fan Deck available at Pottery Barn Kids online for $2 or for free in the store. Traditional pink is a pretty choice for a girl’s room, but you might find that another color better suits your taste. Once your walls are covered in paint, you can add personal details using removable wall decals. These decorations can also be found at stores including Pottery Barn Kids in floral, animal and other whimsical designs. Perhaps the best reason to use wall decals is that they are simple to apply and are also easy to remove without ruining the paint. You can therefore redecorate as often as you’d like with a new pattern.
Window Treatments and Wall Hangings
Another way to enhance the walls of a baby girl’s room is to hang window treatments. Retailers including JC Penney and Babies 'R' Us have a variety of affordable styles available. You can even coordinate the design to match some of your baby’s bedding. If you select solid pastel curtains, consider accenting them with an adorable ladybug or butterfly patterned valance. Finish decorating your walls by hanging items such as picture frames that hold family portraits or photos of the new baby. There are also many growth charts available online in different styles. Hang one on the wall that serves as both a decoration and as a fun tool to measure how fast your little girl grows. You could also put up shelving to display stuffed animals, books and other items.
It’s also easy to add flair to your little one’s room by covering the floor with a decorative floor rug. You can find various styles available at all price points. The Bestever Baby Mats, available at Babies 'R' Us for around $50, are functional as well as adorable. They are made in cuddly animal shapes including a lamb and a giraffe. The mats look cute on the floor and provide your baby with a comfortable surface for play or for a nap. Add extra decorative touches to your baby girl’s room with fun and useful accessories that tie into your nursery color scheme or theme. Hampers, wastebaskets and storage bins are now all available in decorative designs. There are also stylish lighting options and accent pillows sold online. Illuminate the room for your baby by selecting a funky floor lamp and coordinating night light that match the nursery décor. Then make story time more comfortable for you by purchasing a decorative pillow for your nursery’s reading chair.
