Ready to nest? We are sharing a few nursery decor ideas and fun furnishings to transform any room into a chic, restful space for baby — and mama!
Check out my crib!
Finally, a way to peek on a sleeping baby without tip-toeing all the way into the room! Nursery Works created the first 100 percent recyclable, non-toxic acrylic crib on the market named the Vetro. Combining utility, purity and understated beauty, this crib is exclusively handcrafted and laser-etched with a unique limited edition number. Clear sides provide an unimpeded view of the baby and nursery. The unexpected black and white bedding adds a fun graphic element.
This sweet yet sophisticated room offers classic French Provincial style with a pretty pink, purple and grey color palette. The crib features hand-sculpted floral appliqués and cabriole legs and can be easily transitioned to a toddler bed and day bed. We are fans of the canvas artwork and princess chandelier.
Marrying modern design with striking filigree carvings, the Garcon crib lends an eye-catching statement to a nursery.
Our good friends over at WallTat offer a wide range of wall decals that offer high impact at a low cost. We love this clever design that uses your existing ceiling fan to serve as the blades of this easy-to-install chopper — perfect for transitioning a nursery into a big boy room.
Another favorite WallTat decal is this darling Baby Whale set. This is the perfect gender neutral accent to your walls above dressers, cribs or changing tables. The decals are available in 34 colors for the large and small whales that best fit for your nursery’s decor. The circle rug adds warm to this room while the mint polka dots with orange accents turn up the playfulness!
The right light
We recommend not using any harsh lighting in a nursery. If you have an overhead fixture above the crib, install a dimmer to adjust at bedtime. A small accent lamp is perfect for story time and nightlights add safety and comfort during those late-night feedings.
When decorating your nursery, be sure to allow enough time to let the paint and new furniture air out. It’s best to order furniture 12 to 15 weeks before the baby’s due date to ensure that it’s delivered and assembled in time.
Planning ahead or using an interior designer to decorate your nursery helps alleviate stress keep your energy in a much-needed reserve.
