I am a visual person and a baby lover—so you’d think I would have found furnishing and decorating my child’s nursery to be a breeze... Alas, it was not.
There are just so many color options (pastels, pinks, blues, neutrals, grays!); so many theme ideas (safari, zoo, Parisian, nautical!), and so many patterns to pick from (polka-dot, chevron, and stripes—oh my!). It’s daunting—especially when you’re waddling around with a giant baby bump. What pregnant mama has the energy to shop all day in a baby store? I most certainly did not.
In the end, it all came together, but I stressed way more than I necessary. And so let me save you the stress by sharing my one nugget of wisdom. My simple slice of advice when putting together your baby’s nursery? Start with the crib—and the rest will follow.
The crib really is the most important thing you will have in your child’s nursery. First and foremost, it needs to safe, comfortable, and made with quality materials. And if it’s also a beautiful (and affordable!) piece of furniture… Well, what more could a new mom ask for?
