The crib is the piece that anchors your nursery design. Since it's usually the largest piece of furniture in a nursery, it automatically draws the eye to it when you enter the room. This means that it's very important that you love the crib your baby is going to be sleeping in. For those of you who love to set yourself apart from the crowd, you're in luck because we have found eleven unusual and unique cribs for the nursery that are sure to wow!
When you’re planning out a new nursery design, your first thoughts are probably all about the theme, colors, and furniture. You’re so excited thinking about your baby growing up in a room full of owls, or fishes below the sea, or superheroes flying around the walls that you never even thought to look down at the floor. But the truth is is that the flooring in a nursery is very important. This spot is where your baby is going to be rolling, then crawling, and then running around. Not to mention that your baby is going to be in this room a lot at first,(newborns sleep 16 - 17 hours a day) which means that your baby is going to spend two-thirds of the beginning of its life breathing in whatever is in the air in that room. Put your mind at ease with these options for eco-friendly flooring for the nursery. (Plus, you can enter to win $200 for Lullaby Paints!)
Not so long ago you might have been totally unfamiliar with the term “Ombre.” Now you see it in reference to hair, clothes, pillows, curtains, cakes – everything! Including painting. Ombre is a beautiful effect and perfect for a statement wall that will make a room go from blah to hurrah! It's also great for bringing new life to a drab piece of furniture. Surprisingly, it's really not as difficult to paint as you might assume. It takes a few extra steps than just doing one color of course, but the results are amazing and definitely worth the extra effort. Check out the inspiration and tips below for how to paint an ombre wall or dresser or anything!
Like the color green? Like robots? Then you're going to love this nursery design concept! Our latest inspiration board from Buy Modern Baby uses Lullaby Paints in Hidden Path to create a gorgeous, green, gender neutral nursery.
Whether it’s used on the walls or as a pop of color throughout the room, green is a refreshing and invigorating color that we’ve been crushing on all month (because it’s Earth Month!). It’s also a great gender neutral color, so that makes it an awesome option for those of you who want to design the nursery before finding out your baby’s gender. Like a good little toddler, green also plays well with others. Think of the combos - green and purple (bold and festive), green and brown (wonderfully woodsy), green and pink (a little bit retro), green and blue (totally classic), green and white (crisp and preppy). Green hues are gorgeous in so many different ways! Check out all of these ideas for using green in a nursery or kid’s room.
