The Look for Less: A Playful and Neutral Nursery

Earlier today we showcased a twin boy nursery, with a bit of a safari theme, featuring a few splurge items. And because I just can’t help myself — and I know how much you all love a bargain! — I put together a nursery design board to give you some ideas on how to get the look for less.

I included some items from the original room design, like the pouf and bookcase, because I felt that they really were quality finds. I opted for an espresso crib vs the two-tone crib to save $100 — and saved big, while still adding custom art into the design, with some personalized prints from Etsy. Read More...

So why not use these little beauties as inspiration for the home as well… especially for children’s rooms. Use pops of color, a little… or a lot. You can’t go wrong with whichever you choose!

Mini Style: 5 Nursery Decorating Ideas for Small Spaces

Creating a nursery for baby is by far one of the funnest activities—top 3, at least!—to do while you’re expecting. But it can also be a bit disappointing, especially when you’re a hormonal mess, to realize that you might not be able to have everything you want. Your baby’s nursery is small you can’t even figure out how you’re supposed to fit a crib in that tiny room.

But it’s time to get excited again!

Because you CAN have a stylish nursery in the tiniest of spaces with these five design tips.

1- When choosing furniture for the nursery, think modern.

The sleek design of modern furniture will be the most helpful to you when designing a nursery in a small space. Fluted legs and arched sides, like those of a sleigh crib, take up much needed space—and you need every inch available! We love the Babyletto Mercer 3 in 1 Convertible Crib ($400, available in white, espresso and two tone) Babyletto Modo 3 Drawer Changer ($380) for their small dimensions.

2- Shelves, shelves, shelves!

Utilize every inch you can! Tight corners can sometimes seem like a waste of space, but you can maximize your surface space by using shelves to store and display stuffed animals, books and all of your necessities. These inexpensive floating shelves from House Pretty give this corner a modern touch, while allowing the mama-to-be to place the rocker facing the window!Read More...
