The idea behind a theme is to connect the colors to a theme. Something happy and fun. I was thinking owls but they are just so old and overused in the nursery themes today, so i hunted for a while was thinking jungle in general with lots of animals. Then I thought harder and wanted it to be fun for me and my daughter, my favorite animal is the Giraffe so that’s where the idea started then I hunted some more and found that it has been used but not as whide spread as the owl is. So that’s what I picked. Some different art that inspired me to select this theme are shown below.
I like this first image for the texture given it is an image of a wall sticker that I would purchase because I rent my home I can not paint the walls and this will add well needed contrast to the dark green wall paint.
This image is more abstract using shapes to create the giraffe’s silhouette and I thought it would be purfect for a nursery but still add the touch of sophistication I am looking for.
This image just caught my eye and eye catching things are good to help encourage a babies mind to grow and learn.
Just how sweet is this? I love the fact that the mother and father are in this image helping clean and nurture the baby giraffe.
Black and white textures are timeless and infants can see contracting colors like these more than colors of the same hue.
I probably just like the lighting in this one and it is a copyrighted image from national geographic so I wouldn’t be able to use this one but it really is very cute so many down the road I could purchase it from somewhere as well.
So in conclusion this week, You should pick something dear to your heart that you won’t get tired of after 6 months, or even longer. Something from your childhood and just stick with colors. I Love this idea now I need to create a style board and add ideas to create a unique and streamlined look for my daughter’s nursery.
