Here's the honest truth: Mom spends just as much time in the nursery as baby, especially during the first few months. If this is the case, wouldn't it make sense that the nursery should be a beautiful, welcoming oasis that Mom and baby can both enjoy? With that in mind, we've come up with a few great ideas for creating a nursery that is as comfy and functional as it is stylishly decorated. Brace yourselves, Mom, things are about to get exciting!
We've heard from mommas far and wide that the glider was a lifesaver during the early days of their itty bitty's life. Why, you ask? A custom glider and ottoman pack all of the comfort of a reclining chair, with the ability to soothe a fussy baby to sleep. A good night of sleep for baby means a little more rest for Mom, so it's a win-win situation for all parties involved! Plus, the glider can be upholstered to match the design scheme of the nursery. From classic neutral solids to fun and funky prints, there is a design that will surely suit the style of both Mom and baby. Throw in a cute throw blanket and a comfy pillow, and the glider might as well become Mom's backup bed!
After 9 months of sleeping in the womb, not much can compare to the level of comfort that baby considers standard. You can get as close as possible, however, with a set of luxurious linen bedding. Our Bella Notte baby bedding line features the softness of linen fabrics that are both breathable and baby soft, encouraging a good night's sleep in a chic covered crib. Classic, neutral colors create a soothing environment, too.
Add pops of color and interest to the nursery design scheme with a few great artistic pieces. We love the idea of a soft bedding concept with subtle pops color on the wall (think Cecel Allee or EMYO). As your little one gets older, he or she will be in awe of the shapes and prints that hang on their nursery wall, and it might even help soothe them from time to time! After all, don't we all appreciate the beauty of original art, even at an early age?
You take special care into creating a comfortable environment for your child during their development, so why not use the same TLC when building the perfect room for their arrival? Trust us, you and baby will both appreciate a little extra comfort during those late night feedings!
