When it comes to the famous baby crib bumper pads. Yes, most healthy expert advise against using them, there's been 27 deaths between 1985 and 2005. But the bumper pads are used by many parents, in most of the cases without any issues. However, if you really want to play it safe, I have found other better options:

We have the vertical crib bumpers. They work and look great. Try to go for the ones made out of organic stuff, they are more expensive but I believe it's worth it. My soon always sleeps with his face very close to the pads, so I don't want him to inhale whatever chemicals the material is made out of.

I love this space! So many colors and textures that all work seamlessly together. I understand all of the concerns, but I also understand a mother's desire to create a beautiful nursery that speaks to her. After all, a nursery really isn't only for the baby. It's also for the parents that will be spending a lot of time in it. It's a nesting experience for the mother to be. I know I myself, and many of the parents that I've designed for don't even use the nursery for several months after the baby is born (just as this couple did). When the time comes they make the necessary changes. But till that moment comes, it's a relaxing room to come to, rub your belly and dream of all the great moments you will have with your child. And then when baby is born, it's a great place to rock, feed, and play in such a magical space. A lot of parents don't use them for sleeping till several months in. I also think pictures above a crib are perfecting fine as long as they are properly secured. Great job on a design well done!
