How to Design a Stylish Nursery Your Baby can Grow Into

A new baby brings a lot of excitement…and a lot extra expenses. On top of all the necessities like diapers, clothes, and a stroller, you have a new room to furnish! While this can be exciting it can also be overwhelming. Are you already sick of seeing bunnies crocheted onto everything and Alice In Wonderland-eque furniture? We have some great tips for creating a stylish nursery that you’ll love spending time in and that your baby can grow into. 

The Changing Table
Look outside of baby stores for a stylish dresser that you can continue to use once diapers are out of your daily repertoire.  Dressers are a great piece of furniture to use in lieu of a traditional changing table because they offer plenty of surface area and come with much needed storage. Try the Jane Dresser for a stylish piece that you’ll keep forever.  There is enough room for a changing pad and diapering supplies on this dresser that it can easily and stylishly bed use as a changing table.

Nursing Chair
Another easy switch you can incorporate into your stylish nursery is a comfortable chair from Rove Concepts instead of a traditional nursing chair. Look for a chair that values comfort and has armrests. Bonus points if comes with a matching ottoman to put your feet up, like the Eames Chair and Ottoman. Keep your living room colors in mind as you can transfer this chair to a common living area once you’re done with it in baby’s room.

Side Table
Don’t forget about a sleek side table to accompany your nursing chair. You’ll want to be able to keep a glass of water near by and have some place to lay your phone or book.

Art Work
Look for soothing art work that goes with your nursery theme. Try Etsy (etsy.com/listing/96155283/digital-print-childrens-housewares-room) for a huge range of designs at affordable prices.

Area Rug
Bring some color into the room with a funky area rug (overstock.com/Home-Garden/Hand-tufted-Gray-Canaan-Wool-Rug-6-Round/6543245/product.html). Round rugs look especially great in the center of a nursery and add a level of interest and depth to the room.
