Springtime is a season of birth and rebirth. Do you know someone who is expecting this season? How exciting a time! A new baby means happy, new adventures and a wonderful change in lifestyle. Getting the nursery ready is at the top of the list before the big arrival date. Any mom can tell you once your baby arrives, all your time, love and energy is devoted to them.
Many moms (and dads) these days are decorating their nurseries in a style that’s more in line with the rest of their home’s décor. Instead of an old fashioned rocker, parents are choosing trendier pieces that serve both function and style demands. Selecting these dual furniture pieces has its advantages as they blend effortlessly from room to room.
This modern crisp white chair is really a glider, scotch-guard treated, of course, for those accidental spills. Many baby rooms’ color schemes are leaning toward soft neutral colors for a more calming feel while splashes of colors are incorporated with accessories.
Wanting a soft Moroccan theme, these parents added fun items like the huge elephant that gives the room character while the canopy and crystal chandelier provide warmth and a cozy sophistication - that makes mom happy.
This chic nursery was inspired with a subtle French design and warm soft neutral colors to create a peaceful serene atmosphere. I love this design! It’s not the typical theme you see so often in nurseries. This baby girl’s room has all those things she’ll love and appreciate as she gets older.
The fur rug adds a softness and texture that complements the crib, bedding, and drapes as the mirrored dresser and vintage framed mirror help enlarge the look of the room. A simply chic but functional nursery, the French chandelier elegantly finishes off the subtle charm of the nursery.
Awesome shades of pinks keep this nursery looking modern and sweet. The soft furry white rug and flowing mauve drapes create an atmosphere of loveable innocence and baby girl charm. When painting any surface (especially in a child’s room) opt for a low or zero VOC washable solvent-free organic paint. The chemical in VOC paint gives off harmful toxic vapors. Look for paint the carries the “Green Seal” label which means it’s free of hazardous materials, toxins, and heavy metals.
How cool are these geometric patterns and lively artwork? It’s important to incorporate bold colors and shapes into a nursery, especially as babies’ eyes develop. These little ones need stimulation that the bright, contrasting, and varied colors and complex shapes offer. A modern style decor is a great choice with a crazy mid-century retro rocker, plenty of storage space, and a Kendall bed perfect for toddlers. This is the ideal bed for the child that’s too big for a crib and too little for a regular size bed. The low profile bed and partial side guards give parents peace of mind as the child sleeps.
How Cute! It’s the simple décor that makes this room so striking. The muted grey colors blend together softly throughout the room while pops of banana yellow bring contrast. These two elements bring out the excitement of the zig-zag patterns and cool textures! A favorite design and color choice for either a girl’s or boy’s nursery! I love the sailboat touch, as we all know, girls can play with sailboats too.
This sophisticated nursery fits beautifully into the rest of this apartment décor; but at the same time it’s completely practical and functional. Placing the crib and the eco-friendly changing table/dresser next to each other is conveniently handy. Setting off this crisp blue nursery with bright oranges and subtle browns (especially on the drape’s trim) provides the room with a cohesive feel. I love the orange dragonfly pillows, the Taboret stool, and the solid and striped orange/brown chair and ottoman that pull the room together with a wonderful mix of soft and bold colors.
My favorite piece in this striking nursery is the backless couch. It brings that sleek modern style to a child’s room that will transition beautiful as the infant grows up. But I have a feeling no matter how old they get they’ll hang onto their lion rocker.
His first “man” cave! Many times nurseries are created from a spare room or from office space. These rooms tend to be a bit smaller than the rest of the rooms in your home. But with a few simple design tricks, creating the illusion of extra space in a small room is easy.
Stepping into this room the focal point is obviously the dark blue accent wall. To increase the room’s visible largeness, the dresser was painted the same dark blue color to seamlessly blend into the wall – giving the room’s small footprint a much larger appearance. The open see-through shelving also contributes to the room’s openness.
This cute boyish room takes on a nautical feel with the red stripes, British flag art, and the contrasting black and white anchor-looking rug. This nursery décor will easily transition well as he grows.
Sharing can be a cool thing! Many parents love the idea of having a shared bedroom for their children that are close in age. It promotes a sense of sharing, camaraderie, and total fun. These bunk beds were built much like a fort allowing the younger kids to take the lower bunks and the older ones the top. The upper bunks’ railing is perfect for that extra security.
Think of the all the hours of imaginative fun these youngsters will enjoy. The room has plenty of space for a play area and is great for sleepovers. Choosing neutral colors is a smart move which will allow easy décor changes as the children grow.
A nursery or toddler’s room is one of the easiest and fun rooms to decorate. Remember there are many things to consider besides the décor, such as safety choices, VOC-free paints, and furnishings that will grow with your child. Every room of your home should reflect your style and personality, even the nursery. Need design ideas or suggestion? We will be more than happy to help you with your next project.
