In a baby nursery, the largest focal point in the room is typically the baby’s crib. It is a large piece of furniture that anchors the space and can be a base for your whole design aesthetic. Whether it is dark or light in color, the option you choose can either enhance or take away from your whole design. The style of crib that you choose should complement or help to elicit the vibe that you are trying to create in the space. Once you have found a crib that serves as your base, it is time to add some character. A crib can be a blank canvas for adding color, texture and style to your baby’s room. Plus, it is a great place to add those personal touches that will make your baby’s crib extra special and unique.
Your baby’s crib is not only a great base for inspired design, it is the place where your baby sleeps, dreams, wakes and recharges. It is a safe and cozy space that provides a bubble of protection for your little one. Your baby’s crib is a sacred space that should not be an after thought in the room. There should be intention when choosing items for your baby’s room. You want to create an environment that is peaceful, comfy and warm. That being said, your nursery decor should reflect that. The right decor can help to enhance that vibe you are trying to create for baby while also creating a space that is comfortable for you as well.
Custom bedding is a great way to add color, texture and style to you room. It can also add that comfy coziness that your baby will be drawn to. Choose soft cotton sheets that are touchable as well as breathable. Add a thick mattress pad under the sheets for a super comfy and luxurious feel. Make sure to add a moisture resistant cover to the mattress pad to prevent damage in the event of a bed wetting. Most babies do not sleep on pillows, so the mattress pad is a really nice touch.
Do not get stuck in the rut of using blue for a boy and pink for a girl. Get creative and use colors to introduce some energy and style to your baby nursery. You can choose lighter colors for an airier vibe or neutrals colors for a warmer tone. Adding patterns also amps up the energy in the room to match that of your baby. If you choose softer colors and small patterns, you will create a more peaceful vibe whereas big prints can add some energy and whimsy to the space.
Shopping at a store can sometimes be limiting when it comes to crib bedding, especially if you have a certain style that you want to extend to your baby’s room. Custom bedding is a great way to design your own aesthetic for your baby and you. You can create a unique space that will grow with your child and create an environment for them to cherish.
