1. Think Classic

It’s easy to get excited about a super trendy and stylish looking space, but it’s best to think practically and choose a room design with great flexibility. Don’t get too caught up on a super specific theme that requires every piece to coordinate. Start with a paint color that isn’t too baby specific but instead exudes classic and timeless style like a neutral gray, subtle lilac or blue, or pale yellow.

2. Furniture First

When choosing furniture, pick pieces with clean lines and classic silhouettes that you know you’ll enjoy for years to come. In regards to cribs, a classic piece like the Corsican Stationary Crib is sure to maintain effortless charm since it has been designed in a timeless style and contemporary finish. You can customize the crib to your liking with or without a canopy and choose from multiple color finishes. Remember that while this is your child’s room, you’ll be spending a lot of time in there, so you will most likely want to invest in a comfortable chair or rocker for late night feedings and cuddlings.

3. Smart Storage

At first it might seem like your baby doesn’t have a lot of toys or books, but as relatives and friends shower your little one with gifts, the stuffed animals, books, diapers and more will begin to pile up. Choose storage that is safe for your little one with an open bin or soft close lid and make sure products are stored high and out of reach of the baby. You will also want to make sure all of the essentials are within arm’s reach of your changing table since you’ll never want to leave your baby unattended.

4. Art & Décor

Now that you’ve completed the basics, it’s time for the fun part! Bright and fresh artwork brings an air of joy and life into your nursery. Each child is unique, so choose artwork that speaks to their individuality! Canvas wall art from Oopsy Daisy spans themes from the jungle, to sports, to maps and more, so you’re guaranteed to find one you love. Many of these prints are customizable with the ability to add your child’s name for an extra special touch. Choose a piece like the Little White Sneakers wall art or the Floral Shoes wall art and complete the work with your child’s name, birthday and weight to preserve the moment of infancy forever. Another fun option for wall art is a growth chart. These growth charts can be fully personalized and come with grommets for easy hanging. Choose the G is for Girls or Enchanted Fairytale growth chart for your little girl, or select the Comic Adventures or Elephant Playtime for your baby boy.

5. Comfort Keys

One of the biggest things to remember when designing your nursery space is to keep it comfortable! Little details are the best way to add some warm and fuzzy feelings to your space. Complete your nursery space with plenty of plush baby blankets, stuffed animals, and snugglers to ensure the room is inviting and comfortable. The Bella Notte Silk Velvet Quilted Baby Blanket is unbeatable in look and luxurious feel. Throw a couple of Bearington Collection plush toys in a basket by your rocking chair to guarantee every moment in your nursery is wrapped in love and warmth!
