Setting up your nursery is a a fun and exciting time! If you're like the rest of the world (including me- don't worry) the world of neutrals has taken you by storm! It's timeless, clean, and fun to add pops of color to as seasons change. Below, let's talk the 6 things you should keep in mind when choosing your nursery decor.
1. Color Palette:
Start with a soothing color palette that includes soft neutrals like whites, grays, and beiges. Accentuate with muted pastels such as light blues, greens, or yellows for a touch of warmth. Consider using earthy tones like taupe or sage for added tranquility.
Choose furniture with clean lines and a timeless design. Opt for natural materials like wood to add warmth to the room. A convertible crib is a practical choice that can grow with your child, and a comfortable rocking chair or glider is perfect for those late-night cuddles. This beige rocking chair is perfect for that timeless, neutral look.
3. Wall Decor:
Add interest to the walls with subtle patterns or textures. Consider a soft, removable wallpaper with a gentle design or a mural that depicts a soothing natural scene. Wall decals featuring stars, clouds, or animals can also be a charming addition. Choosing a neutral wall decor like this one, is a fun way to add to your neutral nursery, but is cost effective enough where you can easily change it down the road as your baby grows and develops their own likes and preferences.
Introduce soft and cozy textiles through curtains, rugs, and bedding. For bedding, you want comfort and a perfect fit to ensure safety - these Herringbone Haven crib sheets are the perfect mix and are a beautiful neutral! Mix and match textures like knit blankets, faux fur rugs, and linen curtains to create a visually appealing and tactile space.
Select artwork that complements the neutral theme. Frame gentle, nature-inspired prints or opt for personalized artwork, such as a custom name sign. A fun way to add a neutral, yet beautiful piece of art is through a mobile, like this one.
6. Safety First:
Finally, ensure that the nursery is a safe space for your little one. Secure furniture to the wall, choose non-toxic paint and materials, and keep small items out of reach. A safe environment is essential for both you and your baby.
Remember, the key to a successful neutral nursery is to create a space that is both calming and functional while incorporating personal touches that make it uniquely yours. Enjoy the process of designing and preparing a space that will welcome your little one into the world!
