You've been decorating baby's room in your head for years, but now that your little love nugget is on his way, you're overwhelmed with all the choices out there. (Are owls out?

Accented Ceilings Look up, mama! In 2013, the place to play with color or patterns in the nursery or your bigger kid's room is on the ceiling. Call it the new accent wall. "Parents want a little fun in the nursery, a little risk taking, but maybe they don't want to do over the other four walls," says Pam Ginocchio, co-founder of ProjectNursery.com. "So they'll have some fun with the ceiling." Try painting white and primary colored stripes (so visually stimulating for baby!), or cover the whole area with a beautiful piece of temporary wallpaper or a funky wall decal. Or, create overhead interest by hanging an assortment of garlands and mobiles.
