Four tips for designing the perfect nursery

If you have been here for a minute you know I am not a huge fan of “themed” kids rooms. I want it to be a space that can grow with them and Winnie Pooh just really doesn’t do that;). Ha I will give you some tips however to make a whimsical and beautiful space that reflects your babies personality and can grow along with them.

One. Wallpaper
Kids rooms are the best place to go crazy with wallpaper! Pick something fun and bright or muted and whimsical. In my Indie’s room I went with this bold black background Magnolia flower paper (shop here) because my sweet baby is a little old soul. She has the sweetest disposition and a vintage flare to her that I wanted to reflect in her nursery. Plus who doesn’t love a bold wallpaper? Chose something that reflects you and your sweet babe and go for it!

Two. Crib sheets
There are generally no fluffy pillows or duvet covers in a nursery, so don’t forget the sheets! Ha Chose something fun and patterned on the crib to make the space light and fun! For Indie’s room I kept the sheet neutral and patterned to coordinate with the walls. These swans had my heart and basically everything KB cute has is perfect! (Shop here). Think geometric, bold stripes or florals when picking a fun crib sheet!

Three. Art
Art is a great place to go sentimental or crazy! In my sons nursery HERE I had a huge engineer print of his heartbeat made for the wall in his black and white nursery.
In my daughters space I had to keep it very simple because of her fun wallpaper and used these prints from Classy Clutter shop (shop here). Plus a fun mirror so we could stare at ourselves while snuggling before bed time. Floral prints from my collection with Brittney Gurr (shop here) or photography from places you have traveled make Great Wall art in a nursery.

Four. Rugs
If you are a new mom you might underestimate the amount of time you will be spending sitting on the floor with your babies. Not to mention when they start crawling around on those tiny little knees. So pick something cozy AND pretty to look at! I will link a few of my fave nursery rugs at the bottom of the page. Make sure it coordinates with the wallpaper and art. If all patterns are a fail go with a soft furry rug like I did in Indie’s nursery!

You are the momma and you and that sweet baby will be spending lots of alone time together in this room, so make it a happy space that reflects how you feel about that little miracle. Think of them and there sweet personality and spirit and make a space that nurtured them even when you come up short some days. Never underestimate the love, an intentionally designed space makes your kids feel.
Love you friends!

    It’s so beautiful❤️ I’m just wondering what you guys did to divide the wall like that? Just a piece of wood “trim” all the way around? I’d love to do this in my toddlers room and wallpaper. She also has this annoying like 70w(width ? This is the horizontal measurement haha)x 40in window about 3.5 feet off the ground so I don’t know if it would even work or how to curtain the giant long window but I want to wallpaper so bad and this is such a good idea
