1. Choose neutral pastel colors

While many new parents choose to paint the nursery walls traditional baby pink or baby blue, we prefer using neutral colors to complete the nursery look. First of all, using neutral colors means that you can prepare for your baby in advance even without knowing if you’re expecting a girl or boy. Moreover, it gives parents flexibility, saving them another paint job for when the baby grows out of baby pink and blue, or to keep the same nursery room for the next baby. Most noteworthy, neutral colors like pale yellow, orange, green, and teal, or white, tan, and light brown are naturally soothing for your baby.

2. Natural motifs and accents

If you’re set on incorporating pink and blue, rather than painting the whole room, try using pastel shades on an accent wall or for smaller details within the nursery. Furthermore, you can add dimension to the room by adding a complementary wall border in the same style. Choosing a theme adds sophistication and unity to the nursery while ensuring a calming, natural atmosphere in the room.

3. Comfortable armchair

Every nursery needs a good armchair. A chunky, fluffy armchair with excellent back and arm support will be a gem when it comes to feeding. It will also prove to be super comfortable for when mom and dad need to sit down and relax.

4. Nursery minimalism

Less definitely equals more, here. A minimalistic approach will not only calm your baby, but it will make mom and dad feel less overwhelmed, too. Therefore, go the extra step to creating a soothing atmosphere in the nursery by choosing white wood furniture. Symbolizing purity, not only does white perfectly match the neutral and pale color scheme, but it also goes a long way in helping to create a space that is free from clutter.

5. Family portrait

Especially relevant, what would a nursery be without a family portrait? Commemorate the birth of your precious baby with a Diamonds in Ice curved beveled glass photo. The glass will perfectly accompany the neutral colors in your baby’s nursery while making every glimpse special. This gorgeous keepsake will allow you to cherish your beautiful memories each time the light catches your print.

6. Soft lighting

The right soft and natural lighting will truly be the key to making the nursery warm and charming. As a result, the light glow will act as a peaceful transition between day and night, helping your little one get comfortable for bed. Furthermore, apart from the functionality for mom and dad, lamps will create an aura of comfort, love, and magic to carry parents and baby through a restful night.
