5 Tips For Designing A Sophisticated Nursery

Everyone is all about personalization, especially when it comes to the home. And you can customize almost anything these days, especially the very special room you’ll bring your baby home to.

And with so many options out there, more and more nurseries are looking just as sophisticated as master bedrooms and living areas in homes. Not only does it reflect the style of the parents, but it also creates a room that can grow with the baby as he or she gets older.

We love the idea of creating a space that is personalized, but also just as beautiful as the rest of your home. This not only goes for the interior design of the baby’s bedroom, but also the toys he or she plays with.

Tips for Designing Baby’s Room

1.  Start with one thing you love. Whether it be the bedding, or a lamp, or a crib, find one thing you love and build off of that.

2.  Next choose a color palette. Chances are, the thing you started with in step one may dictate this, but if it is neutral, pick a color palette you can build off of. Do you want your nursery to be neutral? Do you know the sex and want it to be specific to him or her?

3.  Determine what you need and what you have room for. Do you have room for a rocker or glider, a regular sized crib, and a changing table? Maybe you’d rather get a small crib so you can fit a chair. Do you really need a changing table or can you get a dresser with a changing pad on top so you can use the dresser for years to come?

4.  Personalize, personalize, personalize. Whether it is with artwork, pillows, or monograms, personalize your baby’s space. In my son’s room I created a wall of artwork, some is just colorful and fun to look at, while other pieces say his name or have his initials. It gives your baby something fun to look at, but also makes the space extra special. 

5.  Think about things that serve a double function, or may work for you later down the road. It’s easier on your wallet and your sanity if you can use bigger items for years to come.
