The definition of what clever colors are will vary from parent to parent. However, what this means is that you have to pick a color that is perfect for your nursery. If you do not like bright colors, the colors such as duck-egg are perfect. They are neither bright nor too dull for a kids’ room.

Regardless, art has a way of beautifying a nursery and making it look and feel sophisticated. If you are on a strict budget and cannot afford a huge piece, buy a smaller piece and make it work.
- A growth chart
One of the things you will want to do as a parent is to track your child’s growth. Use that as a way to decorate their room. For instance, a rustic arrow mounted on the wall is perfect for both decorating the room and tracking a child’s height changes. You can also paste a picture of their first footprints on the wall to show how fast they have grown.
- Be bold
There are times when decorating your nursery that you will be drawn to a graphic print. It is normal. You are just trying to make the room look fun. There is always that voice inside that tells you the print will overwhelm the room. You can use that bold print on one part of the house. In fact, you can match the cot mattress cover to the wall and let the cot be on that side. The other cooler colors will blend naturally.
If you are worried about mixing bright colors, there is yet hope for you! Colors are not the only way to make your nursery glow and look gorgeous. You can use metallic items to achieve this purpose. For instance, to keep the toys you will buy organized and out of the way, you can use a brass basket. It will bring a “shine” effect to the room.
- Mount accessories
If you are having a girl, you know she will have a lot of accessories. A terrible habit with girls of all ages is that accessories tend to disappear when you need them the most. So, why not put them where you can easily reach them? For instance, you can fix a piece of wood on the wall and use clothespins to hang her headbands. This is a beautiful display of designs and colors that will go with the décor. It is also a way of ensuring you will always have a headband when you need one.
- Invest in storage
The first few nights after the arrival of the baby will be tough. You will be sleepless and tired. Of course, you want to ensure that everything is within reach. It is, therefore, important to make sure that your dresser is organized properly and you have a diaper rack. A low profile plastic tub will also do the trick for you.
- Choose a theme
It is necessary that you have a theme for your nursery. Select a theme that is important to you. For instance, if you love nature during your pregnancy, it could be that your baby will love nature too. A nature theme for their nursery will be in order.
While the room belongs to your child, during the first few years of her life, you will be in the room just as much as your baby. Stick some scriptures and encouraging quotes on the wall and encourage yourself.
- Consider the future
There are high chances that the baby’s room will in a few years be a teenager’s room. You, therefore, have to invest in some grown up stuff too. Therefore, get a beautiful chandelier, a sofa, a cot mattress, and curtains that she can use when she no longer likes that little coffee table.
Decorating a nursery is the first step to parenting. You will learn how to choose what your baby needs. It may seem simple, but it is not. So follow your gut and have fun decorating. The best years of your life are yet to come.
