The beginnings of the design of your baby nursery can be daunting, especially for your first baby. When it comes to the design of your baby nursery, you want to create a balance between style and function. Below are some tips from designer Michelle Antonucci on how to start the design of your nursery and some furniture essentials to help you get started!
Do you want the room to feel warm and inviting? Colorful and bright? Or perhaps Neutral and serene? Color can influence both your mood and your baby’s. Choose the colors first, as it gives a better idea of the overall feel and how it will make you and your baby feel as it grows. After you have decided on those, you have a clearer vision of the furniture and décor to select.
Changing diapers, sleeping, feeding baby, and playing, pretty much sums up the purpose of your nursery. When it comes to designing your baby’s nursery, it is not just about the little one, it is about parents too! Create a comfortable sitting space with an accent table on the side for feeding time and rocking the baby to sleep. Changing table dressers is also a must for maximizing space. Cozy rugs, storage, blackout drapery, and floor lamps for when reading your baby a book are all items that will help with your day-to-day routine.
Have fun! Take a look online at trends and pieces that will add a visual appeal to the room. Get ideas on décor that will be beautiful as well as timeless and grow with your baby. Wall art, accessories, bedding, light fixtures, rugs, ottomans, and benches are the exciting finishing touches you add once you have the main furniture pieces and color scheme chosen.
