Preparing Baby Girl Room Decor
Decorating the nursery in anticipation of your new arrival is an exciting event for parents-to-be. Incorporating certain design elements can actually help your baby’s vision develop. A newborn can only see in gray scale. As they get a little older, babies can see brighter colors and bold, contrasting patterns. According to VisionWeb, “Brightly colored toys and wall hangings will capture their attention and develop the ability to distinguish colors and shapes.” By keeping this in mind, you can create both an adorable nursery and a stimulating environment for your baby girl. Below are steps to create baby girl room decor.

Step by Step of Preparing Baby Girl Room Decor
Cottage Room Style for Baby Girl
Step 1 – The first thing you should do is of course you must choose a color scheme. Common colors used in decor for baby girls include pink, lavender and white. Colors typically considered gender neutral include shades of brown, yellow and green. However, you can choose any color palette you like. For a modern twist, consider bold colors such as fuchsia or turquoise paired with crisp white.

Step 2 – After deciding the color choice, you can choose a decorating theme. Traditional nursery themes for baby girls include princess, fairy tale, ballerina and animals. Many contemporary themes are more age-neutral and will require less redecorating as your baby girl grows up. Examples include beach, garden and global bazaar. Another option is to consider your family’s interests. Dog lovers might choose a puppy-themed nursery, while ski enthusiasts may enjoy alpine-inspired decor.

Step 3 – If color and theme has been chosen, you can start to paint or wallpaper the room. A soothing shade from the lighter side of your paint palette is generally the best choice for your primary wall color. You can also experiment with an accent wall in a complementary or contrasting color. If you are using wallpaper, consider a contemporary pattern such as stripes or damask for an easier redecorating transition in the future. Wallpaper border and chair railing are other options for your walls.

Step 4 – The last thing is you can furnish and decorate. Nursery furniture typically includes a crib, dresser or armoire for storing baby’s clothes and a changing table. HGTV.com recommends stacking diapers in decorative baskets on the changing table’s shelves for easy access. A rocking chair or comfortable armchair is another common nursery feature. You can also add a bookshelf, toy box or a daybed for extra seating. Remember to leave open floor space for a play area. Removable vinyl wall decals are a flexible decorating option. They look best on a painted wall without wallpaper or border. HGTV.com suggests framing pages from vintage children’s books for inexpensive and colorful wall art, and Martha Stewart’s website recommends attaching a flock of craft butterflies to the wall with removable tack putty.

In preparing your baby girl room decor, there is one thing you should take a note; you must use paint with low or no volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Standard paint emits chemicals even after it dries, which can irritate a baby’s respiratory system.
