I love to decorate but am no home decor expert by any means, so here is my simple guide for how to decorate the nursery:
- Pick a color scheme – wall color and 1 to 3 accent colors. I like to browse Pinterest for ideas, and I also like to make an inspiration board so that I can visualize how everything will look together.
- Decide on the furniture you want – in both my kids’ rooms there is a crib, a changing table/dresser, a nightstand, and a glider/ottoman. I like to keep all the furniture the same color, even if they don’t come from the same set.
- Accessorize – you can play around with your accent colors for the crib sheet, the color of the glider, changing pad cover, and art for the walls.
- Add decorations – this is my favorite part! I like to put a banner across the top of the windows, framed art on a wall that is NOT above the crib or changing table (I don’t want anything to accidentally fall on baby) and then vinyl decorations on the crib wall so that it doesn’t look bare while remaining safe. Here are some of my favorite Etsy shops that have all of these goodies:
