Noah's Ark Baby Room Colors
A Noah's Ark theme nursery needs a fair amount of blue to reflect the sea, but don't feel limited. You can create many different moods depending on the other colors you choose:
Create a soft, peaceful nursery with pastels. Include blue, green, beige and yellow as a starting point.
If you are decorating a nursery for a girl you can add pinks and lilacs to your color scheme. Try adding flamingos, pigs and butterflies.
To create a more masculine nursery add in some browns and reds. How about some parrots and snakes?
You can achieve a more modern look by using bright colors instead of pastels.
Noah's Ark Baby Room Coordinating Items
Here are a few classic Noah's Ark items you can include in your nursery design:
Animals - two of each.
A dove with an olive branch.
You can easily add these items by painting or adding stickers to the baby nursery walls, or by incorporating them in parts of your decor such as drawer knobs or ceiling fan pulls.
Here are some nursery decorating ideas for incorporating animals into your mural:
Add monkeys swinging from the roof of the ark.
A leopard lazing on the roof.
A lion lounging in the shade on the deck.
A dolphin or two frolicking in the waves.
An elephant squeezing through the door.
A zebra poking its head through a porthole.
A giraffe craning its neck.
A parrot or two flying through the sky.
Noah's Ark Theme Baby Nursery Decorating Ideas
If you want to create a nursery mural you'll need to decide which animals you want to include. If you don't feel up to painting the whole thing just paint the background and then add trees and animals using these gorgeous nursery stickers. You can't go wrong!
You could also paint a smallish ark and have many pairs of small animals marching around the room towards the ark. Try making them out of salt dough using animal shaped cookie cutters and paint them with bright acrylic paints.
Don't forget to paint a rainbow across the room. If you feel creative paint it across the ceiling. Add a sun smiling down.
Another nursery decorating idea would be to stick glow in the dark stars to the ceiling to create an out-of-doors night sky.
You can add your baby's name by painting it in the rainbow or the clouds.
Or you could write your favorite Bible verses across the sky.
Another great nursery decorating idea is to paint your animals and the ark all the same color as silhouettes. You can do this in almost any color. This is an idea that works really well for a modern Noah's Ark nursery. Try using blue and white or brown and cream.
Animal prints also fit well in a Noah's Ark theme nursery. Think zebra, giraffe or leopard.
If you don't want a full mural you could also paint animal spoor tracking around the room in a caramel brown color. Get a good book on African animals from the library and you should be able to find examples of different animal tracks. They're really easy to paint and a very effective way to bring the magic of Africa into your baby's room.
And last but not least, make sure you include some Bible stories on the bookshelf. What better way for your baby to go off to sleep each night than by listening to bible stories while perched on your knee?
