Once Baby arrives the nursery becomes the heart of the home. This new beginning calls for the very best in thoughtful decor. Everything from daytime giggles to late-night crying happens here, so decorate for both. Start by picking a theme or color palette. It narrows shopping options and pulls the space together sweetly. Frills are fun, but avoid getting bogged down by accents with impractical fabrics. The room will be cleaner and life a little easier.
Punch it up. Just because they're babies doesn't mean they can't appreciate a curated space. Remember that infants are developing their senses, and a room with varying shapes, colors and textures stimulates the learning process. The classic picks like a mobile, growth chart and wall art are all great for them to look at. Additional accents like rugs and valances help to further the intended statement. Just be sure to pick fabrics that are easily washed in case of messes!
Seats and storage. The furniture fun doesn't stop with the crib. You'll also need a rocking chair or glider for the nighttime routine. They're soothing for sleep and lifesavers during restless nights. Consider one with a matching ottoman so you can really kick back and relax. Though they may be small, little ones have a lot of stuff. Tie up the loose ends with clever storage techniques. Look for open-top baskets and plastic bins that make organization a breeze.
