Looking to welcome a new member in the family? We bring you five segments to tackle to create a nursery space your baby will love

I have always found ideas for India-specific nursery décor sorely lacking in the past. Pinterest has images of pastel walls, white linen and cute little objects, not always available in India. Take heart. We have rounded up five easy categories that you can tackle to make that nursery an expression of your individual taste.

1. Furniture

Baby décor is a growing segment in India and there are a number of  options available for new parents-to-be. Three key pieces to invest in, include the crib, an armchair (for nursing mothers) and a chest of drawers to store all your baby’s clothes, toys and soft furnishings.


2. Wall Decals and Wallpaper

Apart from wallpaper, wall decals are the easiest DIY décor option to turn around your nursery. Think one statement wall for starters. Pepperfry and Nilaya by Asian Paints have interesting options. You can opt for character stencils, based on popular children’s characters or more aesthetically appealing options like delicate motifs and nature elements.


3. Soft Furnishings & Accessories

Bright soft furnishings with pretty motifs will add character and bring in warmth. Light curtains which can be easily washed and dusted from time to time should be given priority over more fancy looking options. Textured furnishings are best avoided if your baby is too young and is in danger of swallowing any hanging materials. These also tend to attract more dust in a country like India so best avoided until your baby is a little older. Stuffed cushions in fun shapes are easily available in the market.


4. Lighting

Lighting is key when you are planning your baby’s nursery. Yellow lights work best for adding a warm character to the nursery. Although you can add as many light fixtures as you personally want, we narrowed down three main lighting options for the nursery.
These are:

  • Nightlights
  • Wall lights
  • Floor Lamps 

5. Accessories

Hanging mobiles and buntings are great accessorizing options, and work as great visual stimuli for your baby’s developing senses.  Lastly, storage buckets for toys and rattles help keep the nursery tidy.
