Have you noticed? What was once all pastels and not much more than a crib has evolved into the modern nursery, and we couldn't be happier. From the very now color combinations of rich espresso and luminous sky, to hot lime and electric orange, today's nurseries exude not only comfort and love but energy and style.
Here we take a look at building your baby's room. Cribs, dressers, rockers, changing tables ... you can find them all on our site, and we want to help you bring them together. You'll love mixing, matching, and creating the most heavenly nursery for your little angel.
Napoleon kept a rocker in his bedroom, and President John F. Kennedy owned several rocking chairs (many of which were gifts), finding that they relieved his severe back pain. Through the ages, mothers have instinctively known how to soothe fidgety babies through a rocking motion, and for over two centuries, the rocking chair has been a mother and child favorite - so much so, that rockers/gliders are common in today's nurseries.
The nursery decorating decisions that you make should result in a room that is soothing and relaxing to you and baby, so that the hours you spend rocking and snoozing or gliding and reading are tranquil. Whether you select a gender-specific theme or gender-neutral theme, make furniture and decor selections that are versatile, with exciting accents. Decorating decisions should have a life span beyond the years of infancy.
In today's economy, few families have the resources to redecorate bedrooms when children grow from infants to toddlers, and all the stages that follow. The key to smart shopping is to make initial kids' furniture selections that are built to last and that grow with your child. Some items that you purchase for the nursery might never be outgrown.
A nursery is a place for baby to sleep and a place for parent and child to bond in a quiet, relaxing environment. Furnishing the nursery with essentials and just the right furniture can be a challenge for new parents. Take the challenge - plan ahead and create the perfect nursery for you and your baby.
