You know, I've never really paid alot of attention to the decoration scheme of our NICU. I know it's very family friendly. There is a big bulliten board that has pictures of graduates, and cards from families. A big beautiful saltwater fish tank sits right in front of you as you walk in.
I know as far as walls and carpet and flooring, everything is bright, but as for the actual design, I couldn't tell you.
This is very different from our well baby nursery. It, along with all of our rooms and hallways on post partum, were just redone. And let me tell you, who ever designed it should have won an award for making a nursery most resemble a funeral home! I swear, if there was just a big old cherry wood hutch on the wall, I would think I was in my grandma's dining room!
I'd go with the bright, primary colors. And I just love the idea of seeing all of the babies that have come and gone from the NICU! The last time I was floated there, they were putting up a pic a mom had sent. Her NICU baby had just graduated from high school, and she sent the grad pic.
