Designing nurseries presents an interesting challenge. How do you create a space that reflects your own personal style (you are, in fact, going to be spending countless hours in there at all times of the day and night) while also addressing the fact that the room will be inhabited by an infant? And if that isn't enough, you also need to think about how the room will age alongside your child... unless you want to be totally re-designing the space every three years. Actually, that doesn't sound too bad after all...
GET THE LOOK:
Artwork for nurseries and kids rooms does NOT need to be cartoonish! I am obsessing over these precious baby animal prints by Sharon Montrose of The Animal Print Shop. OMG, there is full serious of cats. Go check it out. SRSLY.
This rug is the perfect blend of baby-friendly pastel and modern geometric pattern. I could absolutely see this in everything from a living or dining room to a nursery or teen's room! The pattern hides spills well, too!
3. Walnut Crib
I am def a proponent of using walnut anywhere and everywhere and a nursery is no exception! Along with being super gorgeous, this crib is totally gender neutral - so it can be passed onto the next babe. It is also refreshing to see something other than white on a crib. The richness and depth of the wood brings some sophistication to this nursery design.
4. Rocking Chair
The rocking chair is perhaps the most important thing in the room to choose for YOU, not just for baby. This one is modern and aesthetically pleasing, but it is absolutely vital to make sure you are comfortable in any chair you choose. Well designed rooms should look beautiful and function flawlessly for your needs!
Have fun with pillows, garlands, mobiles, bedding, window treatments and stuffed animals. A mix of textures, colors and patterns will stimulate your baby's growing mind and will give you something cute to look at during the 2AM shift.
