Bright and vivid colors for your nursery? How to decorate your nursery.
When I started thinking about decorating my nursery, I was extremely excited about it but as you can imagine I easily got overwhelmed with so many choices for on the market. Of course, I wanted to make the best choice when it comes to my kids room decor and what I was able to afford.
As decorating all your living spaces, the nursery and baby’s room is a mater of personal preferences, but also it’s a must to suit the entire house interior. I personally love subtle, soft and pastel colors for a nursery. Our bedroom, though is decorated mainly with brown and beige colors. Since I thought our baby will spend a lot of time in our bedroom, I wanted his things to be suitable to our bedroom interior too. That made my choice even harder. I started wondering why baby toys and baby things are always so very rich in color and why all pre-schools and elementary schools always use bright and warm colors to decorate the spaces. There is an explanation for that.
Psychological studies have found that colors can impact mood and behavior, stimulate the brain and body and even have impact on baby’s health and development. Colors are also the building block your little one uses for learning in all areas of their life. Further more colors help them communicate more effectively, and teaching your child about colors is an essential part for helping them develop creativeness, learning ability in all aspects of life.
According to researches, babies growing up in a stimulating environment are more likely to reach their developmental milestones quicker and they have better nervous system development and also show a better attention span, memory and sense of curiosity.
This definitely makes the color one of the most important factors to thing about when it comes to decorating your kid’s bedrooms.
A two month newborn baby already can tell the difference between white and other colors. In fact, by three months old the baby can recognize colors. High contrasting colors are a great visual and cognitive stimulation at this point.
With your baby growing you can gradually start introducing different colors and shades. The easiest and cheapest way to do it is to use wall decals and wallpapers. They are easy to put on and they can be easily changed when your kid is growing.
