Feng shui is used for everything from arranging office cubicles to bringing passion into your bedroom. If you want to create a haven for your little one that will help him or her feel comforted and nurtured, check out these easy tips from sheknows.com:
Transform the room
As you pull together your child’s nursery, it’s important to remember that you’re not just “making room” for a child in your house, you’re welcoming them into your life… and into their new world. Help yourself and baby acclimate by purposefully creating a fresh space. You don’t have to hire contractors and architects – but be ready to initiate some serious room rejuvenation!
“For most of us, the nursery was once our storage room, messy office or the unkempt guest room,” says Morris, who explains that a transformation will need to take place. “Clear the room, repaint and bring in one element from another part of the house that is your favorite. Rededicate the room to the new beginning and watch it emerge as your favorite.” Once baby is living in that room, there’s no doubt it will be the most cherished bit of square footage in your home.
Color baby’s world
Painting baby’s room is a very common practice for parents-to-be. It’s easy to get carried away by an adorable wallpaper pattern or vibrant paint color, but soothing pastels are best. Calamia says, “Greens and yellows provide vitality and interest without being too overpowering.”
Having a girl? Pretty in pink is a-ok, but keep in mind that a soft pink hue is preferable to bright pink, says Morris. Pictured, above, is Eli’s Elephant Nursery from Pottery Barn Kids. READ THE REST HERE
