Paintings Or Vinyl?
Every parent and child is different so we won’t tell you what to choose, but let’s throw out some ideas! Research shows that children are best surrounded by contrasting colors and geometric shapes at a young age. Planning some kind of addition to the wall is a good idea no matter if it is a painting or simple fruit decals. Either option is considered safe and developmentally friendly for your little one. It is a good idea to choose similar designs for the walls to the ones you plan to use in the decor, to help bring it all together. Take some time to check available designs for other decorations when you are planning.
Add in all the aspects that need to be in the room. Things like the crib, dresser, changing station, etc. Considerations with these are color, size, and arrangement. Plan out a color scheme that uses complementary colors with contrasts. Think about how the colors of the furniture will complement the fruit you have chosen and what additions you can make to make the room a comfortable and safe atmosphere for your child.
Soft (and Safe) Decor
It is always a good idea to have interactive decor that is soft and safe for a new little one. Stuffed animals or baby crib decorative pillows are among the most common interactive decorative additions to a baby nursery. Remember that baby pillows are meant to be decor and should not be left in the baby crib while the child is sleeping.
There are many baby pillows styled like animals and fruits to help children interact and develop early skills. Choose pillows that have dynamic shapes, interesting colors, and no choking hazards such as button eyes. Common fruit shapes and designs for babies include avocados, apples, pears, grapes, watermelon, bananas, and pineapples.
Finishing touches like pictures of fruit, fruit-themed sheets, area rugs, or a fruit mobile could be helpful in bringing the design all together. Whatever you add, you are sure to have a safe and happy environment ready for your bundle of joy!
