As Seen on the TODAY Show: 2 Simple Ways to Decorate a Nursery
Expecting? Congrats! Preparing for your little one’s arrival is sure to be a bundle of emotions — there will be inevitable hurdles, but decorating the nursery shouldn’t be one of them. I headed back to the TODAY Show to share two nursery decor themes — a more traditional floral haven for a baby girl, and a modern, geometric room for a toddler. Head to Today.com to check out the segment and get a recap below!
TRADITIONAL NURSERY FOR INFANTS
Sometimes it’s best to stick with the classics. I decorated this infant nursery with traditional soft pinks and sweet floral details, like a flower-crowned canopy, framed paper flowers and dried bouquets. Incorporating soft colors, smells and lighting into a nursery can help create a calm and soothing resting spot for a baby.
One of my favorite details in this room is the dried bouquet board. It’s a cinch to make — preserve flowers that were gifted to you when your little one was born, then display the bundles on a painted wood board. Just like that, you have sentimental decor that also smells amazing.
For a more modern take on a nursery (similar to Ansel’s nursery back home), I went with a rainbow color palette and tons of geometric shapes. This toddler nursery is all about space-saving hacks that don’t detract from the look and utility of the room — like a changing table that fits neatly into the corner.
My favorite hack from this room? We got smart about storage by using dresser knobs as wall hooks! They’re perfect for hanging up odds and ends and double as wall decor. Win, win.
