The splash of pictures of Karan Johar’s twins’ abode, designed by Gauri Khan, on the internet made quite a news. People went gaga over the nursery, the play of colours and the corners in white. Baby room decor has become a serious ‘thing to do’ before your baby arrives. Most expecting parents arrange for ‘that’ room, before doing any other, because it affects the child’s happiness and health . “Awareness and literature, research on the internet has really made a difference. Parents nowadays read a lot, they know what to do, how to do it. What will have a positive impact, and equipped with this knowledge, they make their decisions.,” says Bhuvaneshwari Vishwanathan, pre school teacher, who has been dealing with children for many years.
A lot of worried parents will first go after open sockets and sharp corners, making them baby safe, before deciding on the design of the room. As an interior decorator, Shiva Chatterjee believes that the baby room decor helps the child grow. ” A baby devoid of a calming environment will be a great deal less likely to grow up to be a happy and healthy, than the one who is surrounded by calming, comforting children’s wallpaper. Babies, as much as we are, are effected by the way that their environment looks. A well-designed baby nursery will do wonders for your child.”
One of the most important factors to consider before designing a child’s room, is the colour. Soft, calm colours will soothe and console the baby, while bright or harsh colours may irritate or excite it. Even though, experts always stress on bright coloured toys for kids, as they are more inclined towards anything that is blingy, shining, glowing, but the colour palette for their room should only soothe them. It will make snooze time in particular a great deal easier if you have the correct baby room decor. “As a parent, the first thing we did when we heard of the good news was to decide on the decor. There are so many ideas on the internet, so many products available to furnish the room, that you are spoilt of choices. You can be as creative as you want to be with your child’s room. Ofcourse, the basics of designing, the dos and don’ts are also written in numerous articles. We just followed that to create a beautiful room,” says Swati Ramamurthy, a new mother. Usha has recently launched their latest range of Kids’ Special Fans. They believe that every element in the room should help in creating the wonderland. Most baby rooms have a them, whether it is a jungle, with colourful animals posters or wall papers or a decor with a nighttime sky subject matter. Deep blues are incredibly calming, and pictures of stars and planets can provide the infant a sense of wonder. “you have a create a fun space for the baby to explore, enjoy, grow and miss. The room should attract the baby and make him happy,” concludes Shiva.
