Nursery Ideas to Welcome Your New Baby

March 8th, 2018

There is a lot of responsibility that comes with a new baby, and that’s not even counting the parenting part.

Before the parenting, of course, comes the baby planning. For some parents, the idea of putting together a baby nursery is daunting at first, but chances are the nesting instinct will kick in sometime during the pregnancy. One of the items on the nesting to-do list: readying the nursery.

Not everyone is an interior designer, but this is an opportunity for parents to create a functional, yet comfortable space for their baby to grow in. Think about your aesthetic and the functions of a nursery that are important to you, and voila! A beautiful nursery is born.


The Modern Minimalist Nursery

Modernism, minimalism, geometric shapes, and bright light are all the rage for current interior design, and that style can be carried over seamlessly to your baby’s nursery. Play with lines, interesting shape patterns, and neutral tones like greys, creams, and browns. Keeping the nursery decor simple can also make future room transformations easier, and works great in both large and smaller spaces, too.

The Cozy Cottage Nursery

Even if you live in a busy city, your home and nursery don’t have to feel like it. If you want to simply look at your nursery and feel the warm and cozies, then this nursery style is the way to go. We’re still partial to light spring tones for colors, but we’re even bigger fans of plush rugs, chunky knits, and sturdy furniture pieces that beckon you to curl up. Your baby is bound to sleep like an angel.

The Traveling Nursery

Here we focused on nursery products that can travel well and will work great in smaller spaces. Not every family has a separate room for their baby, so we put a lot of thought into products that won’t take up too much space in parents’ bedroom, pack up well, and look great, too.

The Organized Nursery

With babies comes mountains of baby stuff—clothes, toys, and nursery knick knacks galore. With the right tools, you can practice organization from the start and teach your baby great organizational skills as they grow. Plus, there’s a whole lot of satisfaction that comes when seeing an über-organized space—even if it doesn’t last very long. #goals

The Rustic Woodsy Nursery

There’s something special about feeling tucked away in the remote woods. Whether it’s the quiet isolation from the outside world, the smell of the trees and dirt, or the warm wood of a cabin—you enter a rustic and woodsy-decorated room and you’re immediately cozy. This aesthetic is truly timeless and perfect for any room and humans of any age.

The Budget Friendly Nursery

Not everyone has the bucks to blow on a fancy baby nursery. Let’s be honest, even more budget friendly options begin to add up eventually. Whether you have the budget or not, saving money is always a welcome idea—and you don’t even have to sacrifice function or beauty when pinching pennies.
