Baby Nursery Room Decor Ideas & Free Giveaway


Today's choices for decorating your child's room is simply amazing! There are so many designs and styles to choose from that range from cute character designs to posh modern bedding styles.

With so many choices, what's a mother to do? Should you go contemporary, whimsical, bright and fun, or vintage? Well, that really depends on what kind of statement you want to make with your baby's nursery or toddler's room.

Here's a few things to keep in mind:

  • Remember it's a child's room. You want it to be inviting and comfortable for your child. Not a museum where you are concerned about things getting ruined or broken.

  • Color plays a big part in our mood, including children. The colors should be fun but at the same time soothing. Keep the really loud colors for the playroom. This site offers great info of how color affects our mood.

  • Try to keep the nursery decor simple and inexpensive. As your child grows and their interests change it will be easy to change your decor.

  • Be creative. Look for things around your house that you can use to design your child's room. Make Baby Stuff.com had some great nursery decor ideas using everyday items from around the house.


Now to get you started on decorating your child's room we are having a give away! One lucky winner will receive a $45.00 gift certificate that can be used at any CSN store.
