Let me just start off by wishing all of you a very Happy New Year! I spent mine at home with my husband and kids and another family of five. We let the kids run wild while the adults chatted in the kitchen and feasted on ribs and champagne. We happily toasted 2011 at 9pm as the ball dropped in Times Square and then we all called it a night not too long after that. New Years resolution numero uno is to stay up until midnight next year.
With a fresh year on the books why not start with some fresh design advice? Melisa and I made a resolution for PN to try and focus more on the core of Project Nursery, great design ideas for the hip and modern parent. So when Sara from Shelterpop, AOL’s design and lifestyle site, approached us for help with her son Sam’s nursery we were happy to chime in with our solution to her design dilemma. Don’t miss reading Sara’s take on Project Nursery and all the details on our design advice for Sam’s nursery on Shelterpop!
PN Reader: We’re just moving into a new townhouse after living in a rented apartment. In the rental, we weren’t allowed to paint or hang window treatments, so I’m really looking forward to creating a baby space for my son Sam (9 months old) that I couldn’t create in the old place. With that said, we want this new baby room to be somewhat gender neutral so that it can be our next baby’s room — whatever the sex! Also, because our house isn’t that big, it’s important to me that the room flow with the rest of the home. (In other words, no Disney characters on the wall!) Any advice? – Sara
What do you think about blue being gender-neutral?
