Most kids simply love dinosaurs! They think the creatures of the lost world were scary but awesome…and just being able to pronounce those difficult names seems like an achievement in itself! So what do you think is the best way of introducing those giant, prehistoric monsters to your little one? How about a dinosaur themed nursery?
Here are some really cool ideas we gathered to help you “go back in time”…

A customized shelf designed like a dinosaur will serve wonderfully as unconventional storage! Similarly a dinosaur shaped rug is perfect for your growing baby to go on a crawling expedition 🙂
A dinosaur fanatic can never say “no” to these awesome bedding where the giants from a bygone era, roam peacefully…you can also get similar designs on curtains or storage bins.
When it comes to themed decor, even the smallest things can make a huge impact! Funky dinosaur knobs for drawers, enticing felt crib mobiles and quirky wall hooks will enhance the look and feel of the nursery beautifully.

Yes…that’s a cradle!! Created by a company in New Zealand, it seems to have popped out of a fairy-tale…
Nature friendly materials like wood, natural latex, bamboo and wool have been used to put together this incredible luxury spot for your little one. It goes without saying that such a unique innovation will not be cheap. The soft, plush mattress itself is worth $2,500!! But then again, the feeling of sleeping in the lap of such comfort is priceless 🙂
If you are someone who loves and cares a lot about the environment and is of course ready to splurge without a second thought, this one is definitely for you.

The adventure of parenthood is perhaps the most exhilarating experience ever! The planning for the baby’s room, splurging on all those cute little clothes and toys, deciding the name of your angel, your hopes and dreams and that seemingly endless wait till the baby arrives…
So why let the size of the nursery dishearten you when the space in your heart is big enough? Living in metropolitan cities very often deprives us of adequate space for everything. But here we bring you some great décor and organization ideas for small nurseries…
When the wall of a nursery is as captivating as the images you see above, they help divert attention from the size of the room! Needless to say, wall decals or stickers liven up plain, blank walls and are visually stimulating for the baby too. See more: http://tinyurl.com/qyplf2o; http://tinyurl.com/o2zkh4t
Closed low cabinets efficiently hide clutter and the top can act as a stand for little odds and ends. Drawers under the crib are really helpful when it comes to storing blankets, bedding or extra clothes.
If you have some space for a simple closet or wall unit, then nothing like it. See how some simple rods, racks and bins can solve the perennial problem of storage! Labeling each bin will help recognize which contains what. And we love the gorgeous combination of pink and grey in the second nursery too 🙂 See more: http://tinyurl.com/op3t84l
Use the vertical space as much as possible to save on floor area. This way there will be fewer things to bump into when you move about! Simple open shelves, hooks and rods can support most of the stuff as you can see above. The top of a traditional dresser can easily become a changing station. Don’t miss the dark blue walls in the second nursery. Though dark colors are usually perceived to make small rooms appear smaller, we beg to differ…it can provide an illusion of depth and an interesting background for light colored furniture.
If you are still confused about the décor, going for light colored walls and furnishing is a safe bet…the room will appear bright and airy too. Still, we suggest, listen to your heart and do what is best for your little one…you can never go wrong 🙂

The joy that parenthood brings, is priceless! And is there anything in the world you would not give to the apple of your eyes, if he asked for it? Obviously, you will want to give him everything…even the moon!
And that’s not just a saying, you can make it a reality with this crescent moon shaped crib created by a French wood designer.
The crib is very comfortable and peaceful and is sure to induce a good night’s sleep. The string of lights lends a starry look to the decor and will appeal to the baby’s imagination and curiosity. What we think will go fabulously well with this innovative piece is, our “Sweet Dreams” wall decal…

Making the process of learning, fun for kids is an art! How many times have you faced the concern that your little chipmunk does everything but study? Maybe he finds it boring or not stimulating enough…maybe he needs some creative, more interactive way to enjoy the fruit of knowledge 🙂
Now we know that there is a whole range of products in the market which are dedicated to appeal to the inquisitiveness of kids. But we think there is particularly one which provides a constant motivation to learn even for a baby! Alphabet wall decals…easy to apply on the nursery wall maybe near the crib, these are bound to make your little one curious.
Available in bold, vibrant colors and sometimes with animal motifs (Elephant for E, Vulture for V and so on), these are both visually and mentally inspiring! See more on: http://tinyurl.com/o3lb3so; http://tinyurl.com/prwuwt3
Designing a dream nursery for your baby is a wonderful adventure and you should be able to enjoy it! Don’t let the stress of financial planning overwhelm it…we have some tips on how you can decide on what to buy, the decor and what is important:
- Wall décor – using decals is a great but inexpensive way to brighten up dull, blank walls. They are easy to apply, removable, leave no sticky residue and can be re-positioned easily. So you can keep changing the designs as your tiny tot grows up, keeping pace with his choice and interests. Bold, bright colors and simple, well defined motifs help in nurturing the power of recognition and imagination in a baby. See more: http://tinyurl.com/kzeqlye ; http://tinyurl.com/lk8qm7a
- Multifunctional furniture – choose pieces which can be used for different purposes. For example, a dresser which can be used as a changing table or a crib that can later on be converted into a bed! A rocking chair is perfect for nursing and you won’t have to get rid of it in future. Such furniture is good investment…
- Storage – Simple shelves or cubbies will not burn a hole in your pocket. Abundant use of colorful bins can keep the clutter at bay and store toys, books, clothes and more! They are excellent for teaching kids, how to organize stuff, use space wisely and improve his cognitive skills. See more: http://tinyurl.com/qjyvg7e
- Gifts and Hand me downs – many parents have a lot of stuff that their baby has outgrown and they will be more than happy to give it to you. Say yes to such items if they are in good condition. Will save you a lot of unnecessary expense.
- Stick to the budget planned – no matter how much you love those cute little clothes or toys, resist the urge to splurge! Most of these things, your baby won’t need after some time. Buy what you really need.
- Do it yourself – there are many fun projects which you can try and unleash your creativity. Try your hand at sewing, painting, making craft items and see how unique they look!
- Be safe – this should be the prime concern while planning the nursery. Any furniture or decor that you choose should not pose any health hazard to the apple of your eye.
So, plan wisely, follow simple tricks and cherish this amazing phase of your life 🙂
