Believe it or not, a Retro Nursery is completely current today. So today, we’re sharing some easy tips for Retro Done Right. First off, we LOVE a Retro Nursery. It provides endless opportunities for priceless mementos of the past – it’s the perfect starting point for incorporating cherished memories into a special place meant to build new ones. Giving a child a sense of their past is not only important, but can also be difficult to do. So, without further ado…
Expert Tip: Mix and Match Retro pieces with Modern pieces to be sure your nursery design is timeless – no matter what decade!
Remember Your Roots: Choose artwork with a purpose. Whether it’s a family tree, or a collage of Grandma’s letters, use artwork as an opportunity to talk to your child about their history.
Lighten Up: There are so many fun lighting options to choose from, just don’t loose focus – properly placed lighting in the nursery is key to a successful, functional, convenient room.
Down Time: A beautiful nursery rug is key – especially for the tender knees of new crawlers.
Change It Up: A great changing table can be used for years to come. Pick one you’ll love to look at everyday – through this Retro phase, and well into the next.
Get Cozy: We can’t stress enough the importance of a comfy nursery chair. A little time spent thinking about the memories you want to create here will pay off for generations to come.
