1. Wall tattoos

Wall tattoos are a fantastic way to decorate a baby's room with little DIY effort. It's best to choose cute motifs such as animals, stars or clouds that match the baby world. Place the wall tattoo as an eye-catcher in the nursery, for example above the changing table or cot.

Baby room decor: the right wall colour

Choosing the right wall colour is very important to create a harmonious and cheerful atmosphere in your baby's room. The colours you choose for the walls can have a strong influence on your baby's mood and well-being. It is therefore important to think carefully and pay attention to certain aspects.

Delicate pastel colours are often used in baby rooms. These soft colours have a calming effect and create a calm and relaxing environment for your baby. Pastel colours such as pink, light blue, yellow or mint green are popular options as they create a soft and cosy atmosphere.

Pastel colours not only have a calming effect, they can also have a positive effect on your baby's senses. They promote a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, which is important to support your child's well-being and sleep.

In addition, these soft colours can bring a pleasant brightness to the room without being overstimulating. You can combine the pastel wall colour with other accents and accessories, for example with decorative elements in contrasting colours.

In addition to pastel shades, you can also use other bright and friendly colours that create a positive and cheerful atmosphere. Remember that choosing the right colour for your baby's room is a personal decision and should be tailored to your individual preferences and the style of the room. Be guided by your personal taste and the needs of your child and create a room that radiates security and joy

Popular colours in the baby room

Pastel shades and calm wall colours are ideal for making babies feel comfortable. But it doesn't have to be pink and light blue. Beautiful mint, grey and mustard are also great combinations for the baby room. Modern combinations that suit both girls and boys are also earthy colours such as sand, camel, olive or rust red. Here are some examples to help you choose the right colour for the walls and decorations in your baby's room.


1. Soft grey

Choose a soft grey that doesn't overwhelm the room but creates a calming backdrop. Combine the grey with white accents to achieve a modern and stylish aesthetic. Grey is timeless and versatile, so you can combine it with different decorative elements and colours.

2. Soft beige

Opt for a soft beige that gives the room a friendly and calming effect. Combine it with natural materials such as wood to create a cosy atmosphere. A warm beige conveys cosiness in the baby room and invites you to feel good.

3. Calming green

Choose a soft shade of green to create a relaxing environment in the baby room. Integrate green through wall colour or accessories to give the room a touch of naturalness. Green stands for freshness and nature and can have a calming effect on your baby.

Colour combinations and accents in the baby room

By choosing the right wall colour for your baby's room and combining it skilfully, you can create a cheerful and cosy atmosphere for your baby. Experiment with harmonious colour combinations that add personality to your baby's room.


Tips for colour combinations & accents

  • Colour accents: Use accent colours such as yellow, pink or light blue to create playful contrasts. Make sure that the colours harmonise well with each other and create a balanced overall effect.
  • Patterns: Consider using patterns to add a cheerful touch to the baby room. Wallpaper with child-orientated motifs or geometric patterns can be an interesting design idea.
  • Accent wall: Emphasise a single wall as an accent wall by painting it a different colour or having it covered with wallpaper. This allows you to add depth and personality to the room.
