Nursery Design 101

The reality that you are now expecting a baby has finally set in, and all of a sudden, panic strikes.  Not because you will soon be giving birth but because you have to plan a nursery!  There are so many choices out there that the whole idea can be overwhelming.  Do not fret!  Baby Cakes & The Little Red Barn are here for you every step of the way offering free in home design appointments, paint color selections, furniture, fabric bedding & every accessory your nursery may need.  Here are a few tips to help you get started:

  • Choose your inspiration. Whether it is a great vintage baseball mitt, a piece of art that was in your mothers room when she was a baby or a grouping of colors that you have always loved together, come up with something to get you motivated & to start building upon.
  • Set your budget.  By no means do you have to break the bank to create a dream nursery.  Choosing double duty furniture such as a changer/dresser is a great place to save space and cash!
  • To theme or not to theme!  Themes can easily be overdone.  This is the perfect example of when less is more!  Vintage cowboy, classic nursery rhymes & shabby chic florals are all fantastic options when done correctly.
  • Bedding is a great way to accent wall art or to introduce your nursery theme. 
  • Choose your paint colors according to your inspiration & fabric choices.  A chair rail is an inexpensive way to bring a great custom touch to your nursery.  It allows you to bring in multiple colors tastefully.
  • Once the room is painted, get the furniture and bedding in and start accessorizing!
  • IMPORTANT TIP!  Order furniture early.  If anything takes a while, it will be your furniture!  A crib, changer/dresser & nursery glider are the essentials if room permits.
