April 21, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Planning to have a baby is one of the most exciting times of your life, so if you are expecting a bundle of joy this year you can look forward to buying all of the baby essentials and necessities. Whether you are having a little girl or boy, it is important to prepare a room in the home in which the baby sleeps.

A nursery is typically where the cot is based, where the changing table is fixed and where all of the baby items are kept. A young child doesn't require that much space or furniture in their room but it is still enjoyable to decorate the room to make it a cosy and loving space for the new member of the family.

Nursery interiors can help a baby fall asleep soundly and ensure they are happy when they are awake; so making it warm and inviting with cute bedding, curtains and wall canvases is vital. A top trend is to keep it gender neutral with creams, pale greens and soft yellows- especially if you are keeping the sex of the child a surprise. Crisp white is a hot favourite due to its classic nature!

But if you do know the gender of the baby, then make the space as homely as possible with pretty pinks and gentle blues. Really let your imagination go wild with purring cats, zippy zebras, buzzing bees; and bouncing bunnies.

Another aspect of the décor is the texture, and all fabric and linen should be co-ordinated with the rest of the scheme. Patterns are perfect in a minimalistic colour scheme whether it's cute animals and insects, stripes, polka dots or gingham. Make sure you add some personality and homeliness into the room with unique mementos, picture frames and sentimental ornaments.

The most important thing though is that the nursery is child-friendly. Beautiful designs are fundamental but ensure that all furniture is safe for the little one crawling around. Visit Bedebyes today for high quality baby bedding to stay bang on trend in 2012.
