Wall murals for a nursery

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Tuesday, August 30, 2011, In : Decor 
Spring is such a special time for me :-)
It is as though the world is waking from a long hibernation and shedding it's drab coat.

It's a season of new beginnings, sunshine, blossoms and grassy meadows.
Your Spring nursery can represent all these wonderful fresh elements too.

My favourite colour for walls is green - soft, fresh and reminiscent of rolling hills and dewy knowles.
Add to this backdrop two or three frolicking little lamb murals, or some budding branches of a painted tree in one corner...

As endearing as the traditional pastel colours are for a baby nursery, bright and bold is fun and is sure to see Baby's room through to toddler years and even beyond.
Using green on large areas like walls is the perfect palette to create a bright and uplifting nursery for both a boy and a girl.

Chartreuse is a lovely shade of green that speaks of fresh meadows and sunny days, and will be beautifully complimented with any of the hues in the warmer spectrums (orange, red, yellow) for a nursery ...

Swaddling your baby

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Tuesday, August 2, 2011, In : For Moms 
When I had my first baby (who is now 23 years old :-) ) I was shown by the sisters at the maternity home how to swaddle her.
This process at first looked to me like some kind of restraining method, and I wanted my baby to be free to kick and enjoy her new found open space... but I soon realised the purpose of swaddling and it became a favoured bed time ritual for all my babies right up until they were 3 months old.
