Stylish Nurseries

Whether you are planning for either a baby boy or a baby girl, nurseries are becoming more & more about the comfort of both baby and you, mama! Focus primarily on a few key pieces that you will utilize the most, then layer with small trinkets & gifts from your baby shower, from  trips that you & your partner took prior to baby -- essentially any meaningful items that bring you joy. 

The crib is always the main event, but you should also consider a very well-made & comfortable rocker and ottoman, too (these do not have to be matchy matchy, but keep in mind ottomans should always be 1-2" lower than the chair itself). I suggest beginning with an inspiration image and then collaborating with a designer to help you achieve the look you want.

Framed art can go a long way in terms of decor and adding a colorful wall in your nursery - Consider fun colors for the matting and frames too! Don't be intimidated to create a gallery wall, wallpaper the room, or create a hand-painted mural. Performance fabrics are a practical option for upholstered pieces, which are stain resistant (Kravet and Thibaut have some great options!), or you can choose a linen cotton blend if you prefer no chemicals (try Pindler & Pindler or Colefax & Fowler fabrics).

If you're searching for a great registry for baby gear and accessories to complete your baby haven, then I highly recommend Little Birdies Boutique, an upscale children's clothing and accessories boutique that also offers custom in-house monogramming!
