(NAPSI)—Royal or not, many of us have our own princesses or princes to plan for-and creating a nursery is a good place to start.
What’s the best way to feather the perfect nest for your littlest angel? We asked interior designer Zoya Bograd, ASID, to share her thoughts, since she has designed many of them.
Color: What with reports that babies see colors differently than we do—some stimulate the brain, others don’t, etc.—her view is create a room that you, the parent, like and look good in, too, and avoid selecting strong primary colors.
Window Dressings: As for window treatments, she suggests looking for styles that allow you to manage the amount of light you want in the room at different times of the day and night. For example, she often uses from Hunter Douglas Vignette Modern Roman Shades with the top-down bottom-up design option when decorating a nursery. Vignette shades also have no exposed rear cords for enhanced child safety.
Furniture: Bograd believes the key to a practical and good-looking nursery is the placement of the furniture. She believes the crib, for example, should never be close to a window because of dust and drafts. Furthermore, the windows themselves pose a potential danger once an infant is able to stand in the crib. And, with safety in mind, it’s smart for window dressings to have cordless operation.
