Nursery & Decor

Being that I love design in general, this is the fun part... Let's design the Nursery!  Being able to create a baby room where both you and your little one will spend a lot of time should feel special, calming and sacred. I went with a Modern Boho Nursery theme with Danish inspired baby furniture that are gender neutral, timeless and could work with any color/print you are loving right now! 


1. Baby Crib Mobile - Selecting one of kind items such as this beautiful and handmade rainbow macrame baby mobile from etsy adds a special design feature that can easily become a heirloom piece.

2. Cloud Pillow - This fuzzy soft cloud pillow features an adorable embroidered face with closed eyes, blushing cheeks and star accents – this plush pillow will be the cutest decor that can double as a cuddly pillow once your little babe gets older.

3. Keekaroo Peanut Changer- No Covers, No Pads, No Slipping, and Easy Cleaning! This changer is unlike any other diaper changing pad. Its strong outer shell makes it impermeable to ''any'' fluid, so clean up is easy peasy...especially with those newborn blowouts that happen more times than not. 


4. Stay Wild Moon Child Wall Art -  This print is illustrated with beautiful, vibrant trendy boho-inspired colors and high-quality artwork that would look gorgeous in your baby nursery. Digital nursery prints make decorating your nursery wall art super easy, just download, print, frame and hang. 


5. Crib Sheets -  The sweetest dreams are made of our silky soft, breathable & cozy fitted crib sheets! Our LITTLEMISSDESSA Crib Sheets are an essential every newborn & baby needs. Modern and unique--our Love & light Rainbow crib sheet will complete your nursery perfectly as its gender neutral and could work for a baby girl or baby boy nursery. We also have a ton of other prints and solid color options if you click here

6. Wall Mirror Decor - This stylish and affordable eye-catching decor piece is the perfect addition to your nursery. 


7. Crib Mattress - As baby will be sleeping in their crib most of the time (hopefully), this Graco premium breathable foam crib and toddler mattress is highly popular among parents. It is lightweight, water-resistant with a removable & washable outer cover and recommended mattress firmness for infant's safer sleep. For extra protection, you can also use another baby crib mattress pad cover protector.  Another plus is when it's time to convert your baby crib to a toddler bed, you can use the same mattress as it will fit both! 

8.  Faux Potted Fiddle Leaf Houseplant- As beautiful as fiddle leaf plants are, they can be a little finicky and as a new parent, you wont have time. This incredibly lifelike faux fiddle leaf plant adds a vibrant pop of nature to your nursery without the maintenance. You can even dress it up with a beautiful woven seagrass bely basket


9. Nash Convertible Crib - There are so many crib styles to choose from but I am loving this modern, Danish inspired convertible crib. It's perfect for a simple, all-natural nursery look. It’s crafted from sturdy, high-quality solid birch wood and designed with clean lines to be effortlessly chic. More importantly, it’s constructed from made-to-last materials to ensure safety, stability and longevity. Plus, this piece has a water-based finish and is GREENGUARD Gold Certified for healthier, cleaner air. Easily adapts from crib to cozy toddler bed (conversion kit sold separately)


10.  Paxton Swivel Glider & Recliner -  As you'll be rocking, snuggling, feeding and soothing baby to sleep, you're going to want something especially comfortable for both you and your little one. This Glider is a contemporary twist on a classic recliner and a modern addition to any nursery! It’s carefully crafted from solid, sturdy pinewood for durability that’s safe and stylish. The convenient swivel feature gently and noiselessly helps you rock your baby to sleep during those middle of the night newborn feedings. 


11. Baby Bassinet & Bedside Sleeper -  Being that I am a huge fan of co-sleeping, I utilized a bassinet and bedside sleeper for the first 5 months with Greyson. Having him right next to me as it adjusted to the height of my bed made it much easier as I was still recovering from my c-section and getting up was not an easy task. Especially with the the cluster feedings throughout the night. This will get you through the sleepless nights with a newborn and hopefully allow you to get some more sleep as it did for me!


12. Cuddle & Kind Hand Knit Doll - We are big supporters of handmade and small businesses who give back and these little loveys are absolutely precious. The perfect cuddly friend that will be cherished forever.


13. Hangers - You'll need baby hangers to hang all the adorable baby outfits. These adorable velvet flocking baby clothes hangers gently grips garments, preventing them from slipping off the hanger! 


14. Nursery Storage & Organizers -  Perfect to store and organize baby socks, knotted gowns, onesies, swaddle blankets, diapers, newborn accessories  and more. 

15. Woven Laundry Hamper Basket- From spit up, to blowouts, babies go through a ton of clothes per day! This hamper is the perfect laundry basked to keep all those dirty clothes. It's stylish enough to go with your nursery decor and the second basket can be used for baby toy storage too! 
16. Nash Extra Wide Dresser- This wide dresser is crafted from sturdy birch wood and designed with clean lines to be effortlessly modern & chic. Leather drawer pulls give this dresser a polished look, while six spacious drawers lend room for all their baby clothes and essentials. Plus, it's constructed from made-to-last materials to ensure safety, stability and longevity.

17. Ubbi Diaper Pail - In the first month of life, newborns average up to 8 to 10 diaper changes per day. And over the first three months (the newborn stage), babies go through about 700 diapers. The Ubbi Steel Diaper Pail is made of powder-coated steel to achieve maximum odor control. It is equipped with rubber seals that are strategically designed to lock in odors as well as a sliding lid that minimizes air disruption, keeping the smell inside the pail!
