Decorating for baby

It's an exciting (and frightening time) the birth of a child can bring with it a huge list of tasks to be completed before the little one's arrival. 

While there will be lots of things to think about. There's one aspect we can certainly help with and give our advice on; Decorating for a baby's nursery.

Colour scheme?

There are a few factors to consider when choosing a room colour; Do you know the sex in advance of the birth? If so, do you want your room to reflect the traditional colours for boy or girl? Or something more neutral? 

Colours used in nurseries are usually more muted tones, pastels and softer hues. This makes sense to provide a calming effect on the baby. Below are some excellent examples we found online. 

Rooms for a girl:

Pinterest is an excellent source of inspiration, we have no doubt there will be something on there that you will like. We recommend starting a digital scrapbook of the bits you find.

Rooms for a boy:
