When designing a nursery, you want to choose a color scheme that will last for a good portion of your child's life, but is also soft in tone and appropriate for a newborn. Infants can really only see in black, white and gray at first. Soft neutrals and pastels, rather than bright and abrasive colors, work well with the rate of an infant's vision development. The soft gray of Silvery Moon from Benjamin Moore in this nursery is a perfect example.
A good armchair is vital element in a newborn's room. Any mom-to-be knows the importance of a comfortable chair with good back support — and this becomes even more important when nursing your newborn. This designer had a chair the client already owned reupholstered, which is a great, inexpensive option. Make sure to put a lighting source nearby for late-night feedings and keep a side table on hand for bottles, burping towels, or whatever else you might need. The fabulous yellow pouf serves as a great ottoman for mom to rest her barking dogs.
Storage is key in a nursery — especially when it comes to your changing table. This chest of drawers turned changing table is great because it offers a ton of highly organized on-hand storage, but it also can stay in the room as a functional piece in the post-diaper stage. The combination of wall shelves and storage hampers work as great organizational tools too.
The childlike quality of this clever piece of art is streamlined with modern colors and simple design. It's perfect in almost any room, from an office to a child's bedroom. It comes disassembled, so you can customize the colors/amount of beads any way you want.
