clever design for new baby

Deirdre Brennan - Wednesday, February 29, 2012


This caught my eye when running through some favourite blogs.  So often impending parents get caught up with the boy/girl baby dilemma when decorating the nursery for the new baby. 

For a start they are not babies for very long.  It can be a mistake to take the short term view and decorate a baby's room with lots of baby colours and pattern....all too soon you are faced with a redecorating exercise.  This gorgeous room above, to me is very clever......both now and for later.  It is also rather clever if the sex of the baby is not known at the time you are decorating.

What could be smarter than a palette of soft grey and white where you can then add the appropriate splash of colour as above or pinks and reds for a feminine touch.

This scheme will stand the test of time and for an older child simply add navy, red, orange or even charcoal and silver. 

I do love the horizontal stripe and these can be in any width.  It can be achieved by a painter, you painting or finding the stripe wallpaper you love.
