Top Baby Bedroom Decor to AVOID: Decorating Your Child’s Room Based on Your Tastes.
My opinion on baby bedroom decor is based on experience raising 4 children including a pair of twins.
A common pitfall is taking adult-friendly designs (the likes of Pottery Barn), and miniaturizing for kids. These type of designs create professional looking rooms, but cater to adult tastes not children. Think about it, other than a huge oversized bed to jump on, children are not impressed with well decorated adult rooms.
Many infant décor choices are limited to soft, light pastels. Unfortunately, those looks are not very recognizable by infants, and not very fun for toddlers or kids. Think about children’s favorite books and cartoons; few are soft or muted pastels or even something you would want in your room. But studies show children are drawn to big, bold, and colorful.
You may notice the higher end infant decor seems to place a premium on defined contrasts of black, white, and red versus the pastels that are more common elsewhere. So focus on your kids tastes not your own. No need to go over board, but just think back to the days when you were their age. Enjoy the ride…
