Creating a Personalized Nursery
or Toddler’s Room
How do you make your child’s room or nursery comfortable, fun and truly yours? First, think about what kind of room you would like to wake up in, then work from there. Cozy, comfortable, calm and happy probably come to mind.
Whether or you are working on a nursery or a toddler’s room, keep in mind that you want the room to grow with the child. Simplicity is key in creating a room that can be changed easily. You don’t want what could have been some simple picture-changing and a new bedspread to now become an entire weekend project!
Where to begin? Are you decorating during pregnancy prior to bringing home your bundle of joy? If you do not know the gender of your baby, look for gender-neutral decorating ideas. A great idea for a child of any age is, showcasing the child’s name as the focal point is an easy and instant way to create personalized space. Kids love to see their name as part of their room décor and personalization creates a sense of ownership. It also showcases the special name you chose for your child. What better way to showcase their name than with a personalized print with their name and initial? Then add items that you or your child identify with, like family pictures or a shelf with items that hold a special meaning to your family. Items that create personal story – such as a special keepsake, maps of places you have been or illustrations from your child’s favorite book are great – and can be easily changed when the time comes to express changing interests and add a fresh new look. As your child grows, add his or her own artwork for a dash of color, humor and personality.
Wherever you decide to start, the key is in final touches. Key accessories will pull your look together. Remember, less is more. Keep to a few of your favorite items without, overcrowding. You will be amazed that you can create a room that is cozy, comfortable and personal that will reflect your individual style and your child’s very special personality.
