When it comes to designing a nursery, I prefer to add touches of a theme rather than repeating a particular design element throughout the room over and over. For our third and FINAL nursery, I was drawn to the simple, modern image/outline of an elephant. Plus, one of the colors I used was gray, so [...]

As designers, we like to make sure that we’re always “in-the-know” about the latest and greatest nursery and child items. So, every year, we take a few days off to attend the ABC Kids Expo—the largest juvenile products industry event in the country. This massive event covers almost one million square feet of exhibit space, [...]
Adding small accessories like bookends, picture frames and small trinkets to baby’s first room brings sweet and personal touches to the nursery. Keepsake boxes and piggy banks are great baby gifts to not only give, but also to receive. They are beautiful and come in handy when storing baby’s mementos or first small change. Here [...]
One of my favorite elements to use in a nursery is hanging something fantastic from the ceiling. Yes chandeliers are wonderful, but that’s not exactly what I am thinking of. Check out some of these unique finds that help give the nursery a whimsical focal point.
The devil is in the details! I firmly believe for a room design to truly stand out, it’s the sincere, small touches that matter. For that reason, switching out your plain old dresser knobs in exchange for something fabulous and fun is a top 10 to-do in your kids room! But rather than heading down to the mega hardware store where the knobs and pulls are more likely suited for your kitchen, consider handmade…
Whenever I am doing a photo shoot I am always looking for creative elements that I can use over the crib or changing station. The space above the crib is especially nice for adding a touch of “one-of-a-kind” to the nursery. Many mobiles currently on the market are designed to “awaken” or stimulate a newborn, however it is nice to sometimes use that space for a touch of whimsy! I love coming up with unique ideas…some just happen to be more “out of the box” while others are handmade.
I’d like to take a moment to compliment all of our readers. What a bunch of observant and dedicated nursery design enthusiasts we have! Just when I think I have found a fabulous and unique find, I realize a member of the project nursery community has already discovered it or its even been used in a room that is featured in our photo gallery. Case in point, these adorable elephant wicker baskets I first spotted in the FLOR catalog.
Spring is in the air (wishful thinking) and one of my favorite spring looks is the light and airy pom pom. They are not just for party center pieces or window displays, but they are the perfect accent for any whimsical nursery or child’s room. And the best part is they are inexpensive and can even be a fun DIY project.
Every so often I have parents who are looking to introduce some wildlife-themed décor into their child’s nursery or bedroom. Kids love that flora and fauna feeling, and you’ll appreciate what a fun learning tool it can be! I find that mixing subtle jungle accents with bold animal patterns offers a pleasant balance without taking over the room.
When we talk about ideas to decorate your nursery or kids room, many times, a lot of the design ideas are pretty permanent. So what do you do when you do not “own” the space you are living in? Whether renting is a temporary or permanent living situation for you, there are plenty of options to give your kiddos the cool, hip, designer look that you’ll love! Painting the walls are a great way to add drama and impact to a room but most landlords do not allow tenants to paint, so…
