Chalkboard Wall Decals

A chalkboard wall decal does double duty in your child's room. First, it is a great, modern way to fill a blank wall, but as they get older it becomes a unique, creative way for them to personalize their space. Kids love chalkboards, and these wall decals are an inexpensive way to give them a creative outlet.

A Bright Floor Cushion Makes a Fantastic Accent

A floor cushion is a great accent in a baby nursery. It provides a soft spot to cuddle up on, or a prop "mountain:" for baby to climb and conquer as he gets bigger.

Check out some brightly colored floor cushions and ottomans which would make a great accent piece in your Indian themed baby nursery. I especially love these made from kantha quilts.

      Joan, how thoughtful of you! I would avoid white as it is the color of mourning in Hindu tradition, and also just impractical if you have a baby who spits up as much as mine did!

      In Indian mythology, green symbolizes peace and happiness. And it is also a good gender neutral choice. I'm thinking a nice bright spring green would be a lovely choice for such a thoughtful gesture.

      Hi-this is a question. A co-worker's wife is pregnant (due date is late March 2013.) I want to knit a baby blanket. They recently re-located here from India. Can you recommend a neutral color for a baby blanket? Is there a favorite color for such an item in India (for gender neutral.) I could always knit in white but wondered if there is a better (and/or more fun) color. Thanks.
