Nursery Styles 2
I confess: I love colour. But there always needs to be a neutral somewhere to tone down the colour and ground it. In this green and blue nursery I’ve chosen brown as the grounding colour.
The first item I chose for this room was the Skip Hop Bookends (4). I suggest starting with your bedding or your curtains though, but I usually choose the hard way to do everything so there we go. Good job, Sarah. Way to start with the least important thing in the room. I guess I’m also at an insane advantage/disadvantage having done all the Trendwatches and knowing which colours are rampant among the Snuggle Bugz inventory. Anyway. I based this room around the blue and green of the favourite Skip Hop Zoo character: the dog. Alongside the bookends on the night table is the famous Gro Clock (2) which will function as a nightlight for your baby and a VERY helpful tool for your toddler.
The crib (3) and dresser (11) that I choose are the sleek Leander pieces – the crib converts to be a bed and can pretty much stay your child’s bed until they go off to college. Inside the crib I’ve placed a blue jersey-knit crib sheet from Kushies (1) and a moving gears blanket from Skip Hop (6).
On the walls there’s a unique mobile (5) from Boon (attaches to the wall beside the crib.) and a set of Twelve Timbers dragonflies. Also on the wall, but functional, is the 3 Sprouts crocodile organizer.
While we’re talking about organization, the tall box (13) by Munchkin will help to keep things in order.
Cushion your footfall and provide a great place for tummy time with a Nook Pebble Lily Pad. Ribbit.
To keep things smelling fresh and looking great, grab an Ubbi diaper pail in either Robin’s Egg Blue or Pistachio. The Munchkin Port Hamper comes in the perfect blue to match the room and attractively store lil one’s laundry.
As your baby turns into a toddler, a Cubino chair (6) will truly make their space their own.
Paint the walls a blue-toned grey with a brown or green accent wall and a pair of light blue curtains and you’re all set! Bring on the baby!
A charmingly bright design for your nursery that isn’t overwhelmingly girly. Pink, orange and some grey to keep it all grounded. If your second child is a boy, swap out the pink for blue and keep the orange and grey and you’re all set!
I based this room around the Sweet Kyla Kooky Bird set and included only two pieces from the actual set – the hamper (7) and the two fabric birds on the wall – sold separately in orange and fuchsia (2). On the walls for the other side of the room I’ve included Roommates Wall Pockets in pink and orange. For just a touch of character there’s a 3 Sprouts Elephant Photo frame for the side table or bookshelf (5).
Inside the crib I’ve placed a pink jersey-knit crib sheet from Kushies (1), a grey sleep sack from Aden and Anais (3), and an orange zebra blanket from Kushies (6). The crib itself is the grey Alma Max from Bloom (4).
Every room needs a dresser and I’ve chosen the Alma Dresser from Bloom for this one.
I included a dove print lumbar pillow from Sweet Kyla for you to throw on the glider or rocker in the room.
Paint the walls a light grey with an accent wall and a white curtain with a pink or orange or black pattern on it to complement the Kooky Birds pattern and you’re all set! Bring on the baby!
