Guest Picks: Stylish Nursery Accents for a Baby Boy
My husband and I are expecting our first baby in May, and it's a little boy! We are thrilled to pieces, and, of course, as an interior designer, I'm beyond excited about designing his nursery. I've been searching high and low for the best furniture, fabric and accents that aren't too "babyish" — if that makes any sense. I want to create a space that's youthful, stylish and transitional so that we can change things up as he grows. Here are 20 of my favorite stylish nursery accents. Enjoy!
