When I was a little girl, I was so proud when I received my very own kid sized rocking chair, that I carried it everywhere, when the family sat together, to have my own special place. I even put it under the dining room table, at the end, to watch TV because I was in the middle of everything and yet out of the way. Kids rocking chairs are their comfort zone, place of belonging, in the family circle and are decorative enhancements to not only kids room decor, but the entire household as well. And, there are hundreds of styles to choose from. I happen to be partial to the themes and quality that Guidecraft provide as seen here with the Safari Rocking Chairs by Guidecraft. The clever use of the zebra stripes and giraffe spots will engage boys and girls in their own Safari. These rocking chairs are hand carved, painted, and sturdily constructed for the enjoyment of kids of all ages. If the Safari Rocking Chairs simply does not coordinate with the kids room decor, then perhaps the Butterfly, the Pirate, or the Prince and Princess themes, to name a few, are a better match.
Sometimes all you need to put the finishing touches on your nursery decor are little touches of personalization so that the warmth of the heart and imagination are included in the safe and nurturing environment that you have provided for your child. Nursery room decor being such a subjective action, you want to make sure that what you have created will suit baby.
Wooden hanging letters could be just the touch you are looking for in your nursery room decor. In either upper or lower case, you can choose a single letter to represent the name of your baby and hang it over the head of the bed or on the bedroom door for a quaint and personal touch to the nursery room decor. You can also add to the letters for Christmas gifts, birthdays, and other special occasions until you spell the entire name of your baby. This is a wonderful option because by the time that baby is ready to spell he will have his entire name spelled out so that he can learn his letters and the nursery room decor becomes a living work of art. Another option is to start with his initials and then add on.
Nursery Decor lasts your child for a few years, with all the cute designs, frills, baskets, stuffed animals, and pictures of bunny rabbits and Noah’s Ark, and then babies start turning into toddlers and pre-teens. There comes a point when your baby boy is more interested in model airplanes, rocket ships, and computers than he is in stuffed teddy bears and over-sized wooden block cars and trains. Until then, there are creative unique baby boy gifts that can bridge the transition of your child from baby to kindergarden and actually record it, namely personalized growth charts.
Canvas kids growth charts are a wonderful way to decorate the walls of his room and measure his transition from toddling about on tippy toes to making a touch down. In many brilliantly colored themes like the Rocket Man personalized growth chart as pictured above, the original paintings from Oopsy Daisy and their 51 artists are reproduced in the glicee method which creates prints so true to the original and on museum quality canvas that you can scarcely tell the difference. These canvas growth charts are safe for your children and long lasting so that they can shoot for the stars along with him until he is five feet tall.
