Designing the Nest

Mar 21, 2011 | By
Trying to decide how to plan your nursery? You're mind might be over flowing with ideas, or you might be void of all creative inspiration...but either way you have roughly 9 months to get your nursery done. Seems like a long time...until you actually get to doing it!

To help you hit the ground running we've come up with a few nursery's that are creative, classy, modern and transitional. Make a list of what you love (and hate), narrow it down to "girl", "boy" or "neutral" and find that one piece that sets off the entire room. Some items that are perfect as inspiration pieces: crib bedding, glider upholstery, artwork, rug or fabric swatch (curtains, perhaps?)!

And, as always, bring your inspiration (or lack thereof) to Itty Bitty Bella and we'll help you pull together the perfect look using as much or as little time as you have!

Our favorite nursery? Maybe! The horizontal stripes are the perfect touch to a neutral color scheme and add interest without going bright and bold. And how cute is that pillow? (Hint, we've got it at Itty Bitty Bella!). With a couple color swaps this nursery would be ideal for either a boy or a girl.

Don't be afraid of using bold color and even bolder accents. Go ahead and get creative with your child's nursery...for a couple reasons: 1. They can't tell you they don't like it. 2. They're only a baby for a little while, so you don't have to feel guilty when you feel like changing directions and 3. You're the mom!

If bright, bold walls are not your thing (hate to paint?) then infuse the nursery with color and creativity using accent pieces that are not only easy to apply, but easily replaced when you're ready to update. We love how this family kept it "girly" with the salmon pink, but popped some unexpected yellow and orange to brighten things up!

If neutrals are your thing, and you just can't bring yourself to step outside your box, consider the nursery above. Classic, clean and simple. A plus to a neutral nursery? You're killing two (or more) birds with one stone because the colors, finishes and even some furniture can grow with your baby for years to come. Not a bad idea...

Sometimes finding cute ahem, manly, boy themes and products can be challenging. So when we see a well done nursery such as this- all boy,  a little edgy, and that can grow with them for a few years- we're all eyes! We love the pops of color, the clean lines and not-so-baby bedding and decor.

Does this help? We sure hope so! Feel free to ask us any questions along the way.
