(NAPS)—Decorating a baby nursery is all about new beginnings but also provides a beautiful opportunity to celebrate heritage:
Delve into family scrapbooks to uncover lost treasures. A homemade collage of black-and-white photos, stamps, flags, pages from passports and even copies of antique marriage certificates can pay homage to your heritage.
Whether it is a rug with Mexican flair, woven baskets inspired by Africa or silk linens from India, subtle touches can help make your nursery one of a kind.
Paint colors can transform a space. Consider sunny earth tones and sky blues to conjure the warmth of the Mediterranean, vibrant colors of the Caribbean or even a mural to reflect family history.
CUTLINE: Let your nursery reflect your baby's heritage. Start with a mission-style crib and add some color.
