Here’s an example of a nursery that looks great with mostly adult design pieces.
There are many great elements to this nursery. Here, a few simple design elements create an extremely pleasing, fresh environment, enjoyable for baby and parent. The accessories used are design conscious and could be found in any other room of the house and yet they work so well in this nursery too. First, the color palate is soothing with the robin’s egg blue and punches of mustard. Then, the addition of the black and white adds contrast which is known to be stimulating for young babies. Here we can see that a color contrast in and of itself can be the design element (no pictures necessary in the picture frames!) The addition of the zig-zag pattern creates even more interest for the baby in addition to looking chic. The pinwheels add an element of fun without being too sugary. Lastly, adding the flag garland gives the plain white crib a little bit of flare, reminding us that we don’t need to spend a fortune on crib bedding to make a crib look great.
What this nursery illustrates so well is how little one needs to create a great space!
