painting shapes squares designs on the wall

Choosing your baby nursery wall decor and paint color will be one of the first decisions made in the process of decorating your little one’s first room. Most professional decorators who are experts on the subject of nursery design recommend choosing an inspiration piece which in most cases would be the crib set.

The reason for this is undoubtedly due to the fact that the quilt or comforter’s fabric offers a guide to color matching and accent colors. Once you have made your selection, it’s advisable to then move along to the next color choice, the paint color for the walls.
If your space is small, pull a lighter shade from your inspiration fabric. To make a large room feel cozy, consider a darker paint color to bring the walls and ceiling closer to you visually and remember that you will get a lot more mileage out of neutrals than bright primary colors that will need to be changed every time a new set of bedding is introduced.

When you are satisfied that the walls are ready, it’s time to add the next layer of nursery wall decor. This is the step that gives amateur decorators and in this case, new parents, the jitters. It’s pretty intimidating to think that you could damage the perfect paint job that you just finished with a poorly placed nail hole. The great thing about modern nursery wall decor is that there are many decorative items that do not require nails to hang them.
