Baby nursery decoration is often fraught with problems. Most nursery planning happens during pregnancy, when you have a million things on your mind. So cut out needless problems with this guide. Here are seven common mistakes that you should avoid.


You do not need to spend a king's ransom for your nursery decoration. Why wallpaper when you can paint? Do you really need a state-of-the-art video baby monitor? Of course your baby nursery room should be a cheerful, calm place but not at the expense of your bank balance.

Just focusing On Your Baby's Needs

However shocking it might sound, your nursery is not completely about your baby. Your home will become rather chaotic to say the least and this is one room where you can bond and play with your baby. It really can become a sanctuary. So don't just think "I must follow this color scheme and have those accessories because everyone does" Surround yourself with colors and items that speak to you.

Pastels, Pastels...And Yet More Pastels

Think: 'decoration for baby' and these colors all spring to mind: lemon, baby blue, pale peach and magnolia. It's good to create a restful environment for your new arrival. What's not so good is unrelieved pastels. Mix it up with something a little more adventurous.

High Contrast Fervor

The opposite trap from pastel madness is 'black and white and red all over' type behavior. Some prospective parents read that babies love high contrast patterns such as chessboards and go crazy, filling the nursery with a mind-boggling array of psychedelic images. The truth is that little ones, with their not yet prefect vision, do indeed love high contrast visuals. Just not everywhere. Do your newborn a favour and intersperse with paler shades.

New(born) Age(ism)

What does this rather unusual term mean? In short, decorating for your child's babyhood and not beyond this age. Unless interior decorating is your major hobby (not likely with one or more young children around), you probably aren't planning on a complete nursery redecoration when your little one turns into a toddler. So go for a scheme that will grow with your child beyond the first year.

What conclusions can we draw from all this? It's clear that too much of one color is not suitable. Balance is what is needed. A great way to achieve this is to research and surf online. Go beyond the ordinary!
