We've all heard that high-contrast, black and white imagery is stimulating to babies so here are some ideas for using black and white in the nursery from Australian lifestyle magazine, Real Living.

The room was created by Belinda Graham, a writer and web editor for Real Living. She provides plenty of ideas for using black and white including: silhouettes (see instructions here), chalkboard paint, wooden letters, framed ultrasound pictures, painting a quote, and more.

She made the silhouette above of her own family. See her ideas for using black and white in the nursery at Real Living and at her own blog, Renovate and Decorate.

One of our favorite resources Belinda mentions is free downloadable black and white images created by blogger Kal Barteski of [i] Love Life. Find those below and more here.
