Exotic animals and rich colors come alive in this newborn's nursery.
Animals take the stage in a fun, sophisticated nursery. Two-tone stripes on the wall are visually interesting, but do not compete with the vibrant colors elsewhere in the room. For a great paint job, build a good relationship with your local paint shop staff. Who better than the experts to get hints and advice from?
Mom's painting is a key element in the room, but dad has a contribution as well. Dad, a decorative painter, collaborated with mom to come up with the bed's headboard and footboard. He painted a design based on the valance fabric.
A bowed valance curves out from the wall to create an out of the ordinary window treatment. The paprika colored fabric is bright and cheery and the graphic leaf and swirl pattern hints at sophistication.
Black grosgrain ribbons secure the crib bumper to the crib. The ribbons add another punch of black for the same striking effect as elements found elsewhere in the room.
Pairs of animals parade around the border of this area rug. Such a decorative rug is like artwork for the floor. It will be a fun learning tool for teaching animal names as baby gets older.
