Decorating a nursery is one of the most exciting parts of awaiting the arrival of a new little bundle of joy—it’s the place where your baby will play, sleep and dream! With the growing popularity of Pinterest and other social media platforms, it’s both easier and more difficult than ever to decorate a nursery. There is so much more inspiration out there to decorate the perfect nursery, but that also means that it makes it harder to pick just one style, theme or color scheme. Our brand and partnership director, Caitlin, is due to have her baby girl any day, and she finally completed the nursery. She’s here today to give you a peek inside the room and offer all the sweet and beautiful details. Get ready to swoon!
It’s been so exciting to transform our playroom (which was just completed when we found out I was expecting) into a nursery for our daughter. It was quite an easy project and I was able to leave up the wallpaper, shelving and chandelier! When it came to decorating the nursery for my second baby girl, the first thing I said was I didn’t want it to be overly girlie and feminine—and to have more of a neutral feel this time. That all went out the window when I found this rug from Pottery Barn Kids! I love the colors and pattern and it adds the perfect pop of color to the room. I tried to keep everything else very neutral.
One of my favorite parts of the room is the Chasing Paper wall. I just love the limited-edition Rebecca Atwood pattern and the character it brings to the space. I really want to use a different print in my daughter’s toddler room, which I’m working on during my maternity leave. It’s removable and pretty easy to apply, so you don’t have to commit for too long! This time around, we opted for a smaller dresser/changing table to save on space and I love this simple design from Wayfair. I love the campaign accents in the handles—it comes in blue, too!
Another piece that was so easy for me to decide on was this simple, birch crib from Wayfair. It’s such a versatile color and style that will transform into a toddler bed and matches everything. The lamb mobile and goodnight sign were actually the first two things I bought for the space. I wanted the goodnight sign in my first daughter’s nursery but never got it!
We struggled with finding a rocker we liked to use in our first daughter’s room and eventually ended up with an IKEA Poang chair, which she still has in her room (and loves to sit in now). We have several pieces from Article and the company recently introduced the Embrace rocking chair into its collection. We were so excited to try it out. I know it will be a comfy and cozy spot to feed our daughter and I love the sleek mid-mod design! That blanket hanging on the crib is from Koko’s Nest and was hands down my favorite blanket to use with my other daughter!
