A smart parent makes sure that there are black and white items in baby's nursery from the first day he arrives home from the hospital. Gradually he will recognize other hues of the rainbow and a colorful nursery will be appreciated as he grows but in the beginning stick to the basics and that is black and white.

This little guy is easy to love and washes well as often as you like. Security blankees like this one are essential to baby's first year. A black and white cow is always cute to add to the toy chest as well as tuxedo cats and dark gray elephants.

White can always be added to the nursery d├ęcor. It can be as simple as applying a coat of white trim to the moldling or trim or marking sure that there are some white sheets in the crib. White baby clothes are easy to find and a soft white cotton towel can be trimmed in a colorful gingham. Adding  a crisp white pillow with an embroidered baby name on a chair or rocker. will introduce white to a keepsake that baby will take from nursery to a toddler room.

Black is a little more difficult to add to a layette. The easiest way is to find books with black on the covers or monogram a baby blanket with elegant black script or block.
