Decorating & Designing the Baby’s Nursery is a HUGE job and one that takes time to ensure everything is functional and within reach. First, I decided on a color and theme. Second, I narrowed down my options to avoid clutter. Third, I made it functional, which was the most important thing ever (I found out later). Decorating & Designing the Baby’s Nursery is so important to create a dream space where you can spend valuable bonding time. So, y’all get inspired because I am sharing a few of my favorite functional pieces for Decorating & Designing the Baby’s Nursery:
Focal Points – The Crib & Dresser
The color I selected was stonewash and the overall theme, a calm and serene place for the baby. The focal point of the nursery was the stonewashed Kenilworth 4-in-1 Convertible Crib. Heavy and well made and so easy to assemble. Boosting so many 5 star reviews. Above the crib, I hung the Dix-Rainbow Bed Canopy Yarn Play Tent Bedding. Easy to assemble and the canopy is a perfect thickness, not to heavy or to sheer. Around the canopy I added a 6.5Ft Artificial Rose Vine Silk Flower Garland. I was so skeptical ordering artificial flowers online but when they arrived the flowers were so fluffy and full, not skimpy. Perfect addition to add some color. The Ranchester 6 Drawer Double Dresser is a perfect match to the crib. The drawers feature lots of storage and the changing table on top was a huge selling feature for me.
Additional Nursery Items
Almost a perfect match to the crib and dresser are the Imperative Décor Floating Shelves Rustic Wood Wall Shelf USA Handmade | Set of 2. I love the rustic feel and the grains in the wood are so appealing. Easy installation with many 5 star reviews at an excellent price point. The Umbra, Titanium Hubba 34 Inch Round Mirror worked perfectly over the dresser. Excellent quality and takes up a lot of wall space. I get a lot of compliments and would buy again. A cute addition really to any room is the BIRDROCK HOME Round Pouf Foot Stool Ottoman. It took me a while to find a pouf that was a reasonable price and a decent color for my nursery. I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend!
Nursery Must Have’s
Rugs give a power punch when designing any room. I looked for months to find the perfect rug and one day I landed on the Rosella Natural Ivory Area Rug. If I had to pick one favorite thing in the nursery, its’ this rug! It’s beautiful and cleans up so easy. I love the sculpting look, its’ amazing quality and actually makes the room appear larger. The rocking chair was the hardest thing for me to decide upon. Finally, I did purchase the MoDRN Glam Velvet Rocking Chair and love it. The sleek design is beautiful and comfy -just the perfect size. So happy with my final decision!
Fun Additions for the Nursery
Several fun items I added to the nursery were the Mary Meyer Bestever Baby Mat, Afrique Elephant which acts as a floor mat for baby playtime and the Taupe Lion Interactive Plush Playmat. The lion is so soft and cuddly and his sweet face has a cute squeaky nose. Great for baby tummy time.
Crib Add on’s
The Pro Goleem Baby Soft Minky Dot Blanket with Satin Backing is ultra soft. One side is the minky dot fabric and the other is smooth and silky. It comes in at least 7 colors and would be great for the crib or even just during playtime. The Tadpoles Triple Layer Tulle Nursery Crib Skirt is a delightful triple layer bedskirt that just ‘dresses up’ the whole crib. The skirt is wrinkle-free and fade-resistant fabric allows skirt to have a long-life span and extreme durability. Perfect asset for either a boy or girl.
I cannot say enough great things about the DockATot Grand Dock (Marinière) or the DockATot Deluxe+ Dock (Silver Lining) – The All in One Baby Lounger . These playful safe docking stations are comfortable spots for your baby to rest, play, cuddle, diaper changes or tummy time. I am able to work, clean, cook, exercise while the baby is in his safe zone.
The golden rule to decorating any room is to select the furnishings before you buy the paint. It’s easier to match the paint to the furnishings than vice versa. All these items are linked on shop my page, then after decorating, head on over and check out the Amazon Fall Fashion Event.
I can truly say that I love being a mom. My overall thoughts I’ll leave you with:
“Being a mom means more than having given birth to a child. It’s loving and knowing a soul before you even see it and and caring for a life completely dependent on you for survival. It’s giving air to the lungs that grew within you, and sight to the eyes that will never see you as anything but mommy. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body”. But oohhhh is it a lifetime reward.
