Decorating your baby’s nursery can completely change the atmosphere of the room and can create a space that you and your baby will enjoy spending time in. A well decorated nursery will be both warm and welcoming, and will also be visually stimulating for your little one. If you are expecting a baby girl, a Baroque themed nursery is an idea to consider. A Baroque themed nursery is a cute theme that is also mature enough that you will not need to update the décor of the room as your little girl begins to enter her toddler years. Here are some ideas to help you get started on decorating your baby girl’s nursery with a unique Baroque theme.
Shades of pale pink and blue were extremely popular during the Baroque era, so one of these two colors should serve as the basis for your decorating. Baby pink and French blue are the two shades that will be most appropriate. As accent colors, gold and white are both appropriate options. Use one of the base colors to paint the walls of the nursery and then incorporate that color and your accent colors into the rest of your décor.
You can easily buy several yards of fabric in a Baroque inspired print and use it to create a set of one-of-a-kind curtains as well as pillow cases or blankets for your babies nursery. Toile print was especially popular during the Baroque era, and is perfect for using in your little girl’s nursery. You can also use toil print fabric to reupholster any furniture in the room or to create a Baroque inspired cushion for a rocking chair kept in your baby’s nursery.
You can use lace ribbon to line the edges of the curtains and other fabric in the nursery. Lace has an elegant, feminine look that will complement the Baroque theme perfectly. Lace is generally starched and very crisp, and may irritate your baby’s skin so refrain from adding lace to any kind of bedding or fabric that your daughter will be in contact with.
To add personality to the walls of your little girl’s nursery, hang prints of Rococo paintings. Rococo art is generally soft and dream like, and often features scenes of children playing. Use gold ornamental frames to hang your Rococo prints to keep to the Baroque theme in your nursery.
French Provincial Furniture
French provincial style furniture is perfect for using in your Baroque themed nursery. French provincial furniture is usually white in color and features ornate carving and detailing. A French provincial style crib, dresser and chair will tie your theme together and give the room a beautiful, polished look. If you cannot find or afford to buy a set of French provincial furniture, you can paint any furniture white and use wood appliqués to make the furniture look as though it has been engraved.
