6 Tips For Decorating A Nursery
For all our Mint Mums out there who are expecting a little bean, we’ve rounded up a few ideas and tips for you to decorate your little treasures nursery.
1. Go Neutral
If you don’t know whether you’re having a girl or a boy, go for a neutral colour pallet. White, cream, browns, beige are all perfect for keeping it gender-neutral. Check out our previous article on a few bits to buy for this style.

2. Personal Stamp
Add a lovely personal touch to your baby’s space by putting their initials on the wall, or even family photographs to keep the space loving and warm.

3. Focus On Colour
When baby’s are first born they can only see black white and grey. The first vivid colour they see is red, and then blues greens yellows etc develop later on. Avoid using red in a nursery however as this can be confusing for the child so a softer mix of colour tones are a lot more pleasing to their site.

4. Frame It
Add shelves in the room to display prints, pictures and children’s books. This is a great way to add practical storage as well as a display feature in the room.

5. Add A Little Glow
Lighting is a very important element in the nursery to think about before you start decorating. Dimmer switches and night lights should be considered and if you can incorporate this into the design then even better.

6. Think Ahead
If you have the space, putting in a day bed is a great addition to the space – it can be used for changing or feeding and then when the child gets old they can transition into that bed with out it being too much of a big change.
