Baby’s Nursery – The Coolest Room in the House

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Remember the nurseries of yesteryear? Rooms covered with pink or blue paint (for girls and boys, respectively,) and full of decorations that screamed, “baby, baby, baby!” These super-sweet nurseries typically had one thing in mind – making people think that there were no adults involved in the decorating of this special room.

The babies of today are much more chic and stylish than their mothers and fathers ever were (no offense parents!) And who can blame them? With such fabulous nursery designs and themes available (like Circus Toile and Shabby Chic Chenille) today’s nurseries are proving to be the most fashionable rooms in the house. So who’s going to enjoy these decked-out nurseries more, parents or baby?

These cute nurseries are all about mom and dad!


Is Green the New Blue or Pink?

Friday, September 5th, 2008

One of my best friends from college just had a baby. In fact, as I write, the baby is only 6 days old. I went over there last night and saw her 8-pound baby boy, who was absolutely beautiful. But I won’t spend my time gushing about how cute the baby was, because as we all know, babies are just that – cute.

What I will gush about is their nursery. It wasn’t the typical baby boy blue. It was a fresh, bright, candy green color. It was such an inviting room, I almost wanted to just stay there. Maybe it’s just me, but I like the movement away from a strictly blue or pink nursery. Breathing some fresh, green air into the nursery is a wonderfully fun idea!
