Natural Details• Go for natural-fiber textiles in the nursery. Organic cotton, linen and wool are all lovely choices.• Etsy is home to many wonderful independent shops offering handmade toys and supplies, as well as artwork and decor for the nursery. Try a search on the site for "organic baby," "organic baby toy" or "nursery art," and many beautiful things are sure to pop up. • Your baby will accumulate plenty (too many, surely!) toys in the upcoming years. Do him or her a favor and keep things simple now. A few special toys and books, lovingly arranged, plus a comfortable place to rest, snuggle and change diapers is really all you need.Green tip: Avoid the need to shop for new furniture at each stage of development by using pieces that will work now and later. A daybed is a truly versatile piece that can be used now for tired parents to rest on, and later as a toddler bed and a comfy spot to curl up and read stories on. Here you can see a mattress set on a basic frame was pushed against the wall and finished with a pretty coverlet and extra pillows.Nursery style notes: While bold colors and high-contrast black and white are said to stimulate baby, sometimes soothing is what we are after. For a truly restful, comforting nest for little one, choose soft, creamy shades of beige and white. Natural materials
like woven baskets, driftwood and soft cotton and wool are ideal mates for this easy look.
