After Winter’s long dark days, the beauty of Spring is so refreshing! But what does this have to do with a nursery? Spring = happy, and few things are more important than feeling happy when you’re in your child’s room. So, here’s how to take inspiration from those lovely blooms and apply it to your nursery design in fresh and modern ways you will want to use all year round!
Color Splash! April shower bring May flowers, but using floral designs in your nursery doesn’t mean it has to look like your Grandma’s sofa. Make use of fresh pastels and fun brights. Afraid of too much? Bring in color with an accent piece you can remove later, like a rug. Ready to dive in? Go for a piece of furniture in a bright hue, or get outside in the fresh Spring air and paint one yourself.

Kick Back: This Spring, you can make use of those old wicker chairs in a new way! Give them a coat of paint to freshen them up or add a cozy chair pad for comfort. Wicker and rattan are classic Springtime textures that will make you wish you could set up a lemonade stand right in your nursery!

Breathe Easy: Nothing beats the scent of fresh flowers, but be very careful about which plants you bring into the nursery. If bringing in any real flowers, put them high up out of baby’s reach and make sure to clean up any fallen petals immediately. Our fix? These adorable flower pots made entirely out of felt! They may lack the aroma, but they double as toys and never have to be watered!
A few Expert Tips: Springtime brings extra moisture and pollen into the air. Keep up with your Spring cleaning to keep the air in your nursery fresh and allergen-free.
Make sure to get blackout shades before Spring hits – keep that harsh sun out of baby’s eyes.
