In lieu of all the babies this year, I have had nurseries on the brain. Naturally, I hear a friend is expecting and immediately start debating in my mind if I’d go with a birch or white crib, modern or frills. It was time to put one of these designs down on paper. Nursery design should flow with the rest of the house, just more kid friendly and fun.
Here you go:
The basic pieces are versatile and gender neutral (a big plus so you only have to swap out accessories for your next munchkin!). I’m in love with Ikea’s new dotted bedding collection. It’s modern and fun without being in your face BABY. Plus, it’ll grow with them.
One of my favorite staples in a nursery is a traditional rug. It grounds the space, blends the old with the new, and adds a bit of the “real world.” The faded teal color picks up the dots in the bedding and the gray in the glider. This design is intended for a girl, hence the multi-pink pom-pom mobile, but it could easily be switched out for a more “manly” option.
Crib (only $70!)
Bedding: an easy DIY to turn into baby size
Rug: also scour Ebay
Lamp: this would also be a good DIY project
Zebra Print: also scour Etsy
What do you think?
And, here’s to all the babies this year!
