Babies like high-contrast patterns, such as black-and-white checkerboards, bull’s-eye, and concentric circles of contrasting colors (colors opposite from each other on the color wheel).

Even babies get bored with monotony. They enjoy an occasional change of objects in their environment too. The images don’t have to be so-called baby themes either. Take baby Frank Lloyd Wright, one of America’s most accomplished architects, for example. His mother hung images of classical architecture around his room and told him that some day, he would be a famous architect. Now, that’s the power of words and manifestation at its finest.

“They” say that babies cry more in yellow rooms. Is that true? Sorry to burst your big sunshine balloon, but the answer is No! It was started by someone years ago and has continued to circulate.

Although a happy color, a little bit of yellow can go a along way. Especially bright yellows, sense too much exposure can be unsettling and can cause eye fatigue. Yellow is an attrition-grabber. It’s the most most luminous color in the spectrum, and is the first color that the human eye processes. This explains why it is used for caution signs and emergency rescue vehicles are yellow.
