My baby is not really an infant. She is 15 months old. But she will be eternally 3 months old. She is visually impaired and it has been recommended by vision specialist to use red and black to decorate her room.
Of course, I want it to be cute, so I am decorating it in lady bugs. The wall that her dresser/changing table is on I am going to paint red with black polka dots. I just need ideas for the other 3 walls.
So I need some ideas please. Anyone here have any expertise with the visually impaired???

Is there only one wall with a window? If so then I would paint it black and keep the other walls red with the polka dots. I think that the black wall with the window would help with spacial orientation.
Thank you Amy (dizneenut) for my gorgeous siggy!!!!
I would outline bounderies with red. For instance, red around the doorway, red around the window, etc... With one wall being polka dots it might be cute doing one wall red, one black, and the other striped! But I would still outline boundaries in one color.
What is the degree of her visual impairment? Is it a level where she will rely on touch more so than sight? If so I think that having some different textures on the wall might be good? Using different materials as panels or something so that she can feel them and touch them? Soft things, rough things, things that are bumpy, things that will make noises when she touches them?
Does that make any sense? I am not sure if her visual impairment is at a degree that would make this benefit her as much as I am thinking...
