 If you’re setting up Toddler Room Decor, remember that younger children often want a change when it’s time for a room of their very own. If your child had a very traditional pink or blue nursery, he or she might want something a little more grown up.

Focus on Bedding

Most modern nursery ideas focus heavily on crib sets and other bedding. After all, the bedding is one of the most important and constant objects in the room. Once you’ve selected your colors, choose coordinating bedding, then work from there to pick out accessories. Designing the room this way makes it much easier to create an attractive, well-designed environment that both kids and adults will find appealing.

Choose Versatile Furniture

The best furnishings for a nursery are those that can serve another purpose once your baby grows up a little. Consider convertible cribs that can be used as toddler beds or as desks and workstations by an older child. Changing tables and storage units can perform more than one function, too; the best turn into book or toy storage for preschoolers and elementary-age children.

No matter what kind of tastes, budget or space you have available for your nursery or your toddler’s room, you can put together a beautiful decorating scheme. Simply take a little time and think about the overall look and feel you’d prefer, then build the room up in small steps from there. With a little bit of advance consideration, you’re sure to get the perfect look.

Lively Turquoise Crib Bedding Makes a Nursery Fun

Posted by on Jan 24, 2013 in Baby Bedding Collections | Comments Off on Lively Turquoise Crib Bedding Makes a Nursery Fun

Once upon a time, parents-to-be didn’t have many decisions to make when it came to decorating the nursery. Most furniture was white and most crib bedding and soft furnishings were either pink, blue or yellow. Modern parents are a lot more style-conscious, however, and that extends to the nursery. Bold colors and decorative elements are a popular way to make your child’s environment fun and exciting, both for the new baby and for adults.

Turquoise and teal are among the newest options for nursery decorating, and they provide a huge range of options for parents. For instance, you can pair turquoise crib bedding with traditional white furniture for a sweet, classic look or use it along with bright red walls and dark gray furniture for a gender neutral nursery that’s really stimulating.

If you’d like something a little softer, consider mixing turquoises and teals with other shades in the blue-green family for a tone-on-tone nursery. This kind of color scheme is great for parents who want a sky and clouds or undersea theme for their baby’s room. You can also add a feminine touch by combining teal crib bedding with soft pinks, muted lavender tones or light yellow.

Using Bold Colors Well
Especially in the nursery, it’s important not to take over the room with too many bright tones. That means you’ll need to use brilliant turquoise or teal elements carefully. Avoid painting the whole room with a very strong shade of turquoise unless you have plenty of light, muted tones to balance it.

Many parents actually stick to using smaller elements, such as pillows, caddies and wall hangings, to add a safe, comforting touch of color without the risk of overwhelming the viewer. Generally speaking, the brighter and bolder the tone, the smaller it should be in the context of the entire room. This is the best way to keep your turquoise nursery feeling exciting and inviting.

Where to Start
If you’re interested in introducing this appealing color into your nursery decorating scheme but don’t know where to start, you’ll need to stick to small changes. Major nursery overhauls can be wonderful if they’re done correctly, but they can be hard to fix if you make an error.

Instead of ripping up the carpet and repainting right away, start out by thinking about the final look and feel you’d like for the room. Head to Baby’s Own Room and check out the array of bedding, pillows and other small accessories you can buy to accent your child’s nursery. Once you find a few elements you feel happy with, you can move on to bigger and more exciting decisions.
