2017 Nursery Room Inspiration


For First time parents, designing the nursery room is one of their TOP TO-DO-LIST. Seems they gave more effort on this than planning their wedding; Even the godmothers can't wait to see the little Jurassic. In my previous post,  I talked about the colors affecting the baby and this year's Pantone color of the year; to combine these two aspects I curated 5 Nursery Rooms that will give a new light to their design themes, especially to first-time parents. Read along with the 5 Nursery Room Inspiration for 2017.

Neutral Themed Nursery Room in a Monochromatic Color Scheme (The use of Gray in a different shade from light to dark) Accented with other Neutral Color Pallette using colors White, Browns, and Black. When using this color scheme; there's no need to renovate it with another concept; all you have to do is change the furniture and add little accessories appropriate for his or her age.

Warm Color + Neutral Color. The use of baby pink signifies the baby is a girl and the gray made the pink stand out in a feminine yet luxurious feel. Grey color goes a long way when changing themes to match. In this, I wouldn't advise that the chandelier to be placed above the crib, just a little bit away would be great. The Pink Curtains gives a statement from the ceiling towards the floor as you could see it transition towards the single seater sofa, crib, and a white rug.

 Greenery. This Nature-Themed Nursery Room attracts the kid's attention; as it is spruced up using cartoon figures of animals found in the forest. This is paired with Blue symbolizes the sky and Neutral Colored palettes such as browns that signify the earth, trunk, and soil. I find this having a modern retro vibe in terms of its color and design.

Analogous Color Scheme. The use of Blue, Green, and Yellow is obvious and gave a story to this room to a baby boy's nursery room by using dark, medium, and light tones to come up with this color palette. Blue is the dominant color applied in Light Paint through walls and Dark Blues in its accessories, While Green signifies the good nature that it gives and added color of Sunshine Yellow to brighten up the cool colored nursery room.

Black and White Classic. Definitely, I would enjoy this room; this can be used by either a baby girl or a boy. This room has applied 85% on White making use of the remaining 15% Black as its Accent. Dad loves this room as it has its masculine color on it and wouldn't mind if they have to stay all night in this Black and White Nursery Themed Room.

4 Pinterest Inspired Relationship Decors for Valentines Day


February known as the love month. The month that I have spent a million black valentines while waiting for my Romeo to be my knight and shining armor. Many lucky enough to find a beau, a few made it last longer to end up in an engagement and Strong Enough to hold on to a Marriage.

I have mentioned Four stages of relationships. The Beau, The Engaged, The Wedded Couple and Family. Each stage in a relationship has an equivalent Valentine easy to Set-up for lunch or dinner date.  

The Beau


Surprising your beau on Valentine is sweeter than a planned dinner date at a restaurant or movie theater. From a girls perspective; sweeping our feet never goes out of style. It doesn't really matter if you actually did the Do It Yourself Heart with Cupid's arrow but the effort in surprising us is a big deal.

To see this kind of set-up with tables and chairs to be filled. I would definitely think that WEDDING BELLS soon to be heard. The set-up used a Minimalist Concept and Do-It-Yourself preparations and a handful of creative people to prepare for this.

The Wedded Couple

A lot of married women say; after the wedding, their husbands became less and less romantic and Husbands in return would say; their wife was less than interesting. If that's the case for both partners. Why not think of having an intimate dinner by candlelight at home, its romantic and interesting activity to be done by the Husband and Wife.

House Beautiful

Celebrate your Valentine's with your kids and let them spike up their energy in creating a D-I-Y Heart Shaped with frame activity to surprise your love. 

Whatever your current relationship status would be; it doesn't her to give your special someone something that they could remember.

You can do this activity over the weekend and who knows you might just get luckier in love this time. Doing this activity won't take much time for your special someone and it takes an effort to prove to them how much you care. 

Show your love and make them sweep off their feet with your overly sweet surprise.

Checklist for Nursery Room


Most of my friends either got married or got themselves pregnant. Having a baby to them is a blessing and since Most of them are first time mothers; I thought of having a checklist for them and other future mothers to have their nursery checklist. These are just a little hand-outs that can be useful for them.

Nursery Room Colors


Color affects the way we perceive things, make us feel, and how react to them. Newborn babies recognize shapes, colors, and sound. It's a step to nurturing them as they grow older day by day. When it comes to babies, babies are more sensitive to colors; and selecting colors are very important decisions to secure your baby's being. 

The colors used for babies differ; for their room, A Nursery Room has a Tint, a primary color added with white. Let's say Red and to make it lighter White is mixed with Red and the result is PINK; which is now suitable for babies.  The color meanings do not change only the mood it gives to the user.

Cool Colors

Blue Color. The commonly used color for Boys' Nursery Room and some Girls will depend on the Tint (Color + White) or Shade (Color + Black). Though I prefer a dark shade for a Boy's Nursery Room; I only find this color to be applicable to a spacious Nursery Room with natural light coming in. But if you have a Smaller Room; go for a Color that is lighter to maximize the space.

Green Color. The color of Spring gives sunshine to them; this color can be used for a baby girl or baby boy. This year's color is greenery and can be applied to a Nursery Room; a refreshing color to be used; if you are one of those parents who hadn't known your baby's gender but is too excited to refer your future newborn baby's room; then this is a safe color yet very surprising outcome.

Violet Color. The Luxurious Color of the Cool Color Family. Choosing a darker shade means using less of the color; use it as an accent to make a statement. A lighter color (Lavender) can be used in the entire room as your main color palette; Best seen with Princess Themed Nursery Room.

Warm Color
Warm Colors are stimulating but for the Nursery Room, Bright and Dark Colors are not advisable; I find it disturbing for parents and babies. These colors are best used at minimal print or accessorizing in this palette. You don't want to have a screaming baby most of the time.

Pink is commonly used for Girls Nursery Room; this color belongs to the family of Red. Using this color is good for children. This gives them the right amount of adrenaline to start with the future kick.

Neutral Color

The use of White and Light Gray is a seamless classic and neutral color that one can paint its wall. Using this color gives you the freehand to add an accent of color you wish to apply or use the different shade to give texture and depth.

Other colors such as Red, Orange, Yellow, and Black can be used but with a very minimal application. Apply Colors that are lighter in color for the walls. Choosing a darker hue is best in one wall or one area as your focal point.
