Many couples pick out baby names before they even say, ‘I Do’ – what better element to incorporate into your nursery design to add a personalized touch?

3. Patterned Ceiling

Babies spend a lot of time on their backs looking up at the ceiling. Use this to your benefit when designing the nursery so that your child can amuse themselves in the crib to give you some much-needed me-time. Paint the ceiling with fun and colorful patterns that will grab their attention, stimulate their senses and triple up as the focal point to the room! You can even bring the outdoors in by painting constellations, clouds or the night sky on the ceiling. Be sure to have somber walls if you’re going with this as you want to avoid overwhelming the space. Here’s an example of a patterned ceiling:

4. Alphabet blocks

Turn the nursery into a fun learning environment by incorporating alphabet blocks into the design. This can be done with soft furnishing (alphabets printed on rugs, pillows or curtains) or you can use alphabet blocks to create a focal point in the room by hanging up 3D wooden alphabet blocks above the crib. This can be turned into an interactive learning method by making the 3D alphabet blocks detachable from the wall. You can do this for cheap by simply hanging a wooden alphabet puzzle board on the wall. Here is an example of 3D alphabet blocks on the wall:

5. Interactive furniture

Create a sense of discovery by incorporating fun interactive furniture pieces in the space that will add a touch of whimsical to tap into your child’s imagination and sense of discovery. Fun whimsical pieces such as children sized slides, fire engine, submarine or spaceship are great pieces to have in the nursery for this purpose.

As an added benefit, you can have built-in storage in these pieces to create that much-needed space for toys, books or even clothes! Here is an example of a tepee in the nursery, it creates a fun little nook where your child’s imagination can run free:
