Essential Tips on How to Decorate Your Child’s Room


Caution! Baby is on his/her way, how to decorate his/her room? We all like the classics-blue for a boy and pink for a girl(and we love it), but what other alternatives exist? Which is the best colour for your baby?

Choose a soothing, bright nuance that induces ease-into-sleep feel. The new member of the family will probably cry a lot during the first year. Unfortunately, it’s a habit most of the newborn babies have. That is why it is crucial to consider the psychological effect of the colours.

Red: The ‘hottest’ colour. Bold. Passionate. Emotional. Attracts the attention. If I have to be honest, it is my personal favourite, but I don’t think it is suitable for little children, though. You can still add some red accents, but be careful not to overdo it. After all, red may raise associations with aggression and violence.

Orange: With his friendly, welcoming and warm look, orange is the perfect choice when you want to achieve a cosy look. Remember, light and delicate nuances only! Don’t make your baby feel like he/she is trapped in a big orange.

Yellow: Lively. Energetic. Cheerful. Another appropriate colour for both girls and boys.

Green: Calming, refreshing and nurturing, green relaxes and reduces the stress, because it creates the feeling that we are among the nature.

Blue: Healing and subtle. Avoid using blue plates, though, because it reduces the appetite. Especially if your baby is a poor eater. In general, blue is considered to increase productivity.

White: Clean, innocent and pure, but extremely impractical. Take into consideration this fact when choosing the interior. You don’t want to end scrubbing the walls during weekends, I guess.

Pink: Romantic, loving and feminine. No color is more girly than pink. Combine with white accents and voilà-you receive the dream girl’s room.

What else can you do to spice up the room?

A Colourful Dresser: The idea is pretty simple, but very good-looking. Here is what you need: a white dresser and four colourful ribbons. Just tie them on each handle.

Owl-shaped Rug: Or horse-shaped. Or cat-shaped. Or whatever animal you like. It creates a pleasant mood.

Wall decal: It is a pity to leave the walls boring when such a variety of trees, birds and flowers exist.

Mini-Shelf: Whether you decide to put decorative statues there, or baby’s toys, it looks good. On the top of that, it is a quite practical solution if you don’t have enough space.
