One of the biggest things I struggled to find information on while pregnant was simple and practical nursery set-ups. No matter where I’d look I’d either find super complicated, overly ornate nurseries or ones that felt sterile. Neither worked for me. I wanted something warm and friendly while still maintaining a minimalist vibe.
After months of searching and only finding a few nurseries that truly spoke to me I realized there aren’t enough resources in the space. There are dozens of mommy bloggers that would share nursery details but none that looked like they’d work for me. While I don’t normally share information about the rooms and day to day life in our home I wanted to share some photos and resources about our nursery in hopes that it might help others find what they are looking for.
- Elephant Art. This works great as an anchor piece in the nursery. I couldn’t find the exact piece to link for you but I did try to point you in the right direction.
- Rocking Chair. I was nervous about shopping online for this but ended up loving the one we picked out.
- Blanket. This is a custom piece by my grandmother. I wanted to add it here because I know there’d be questions about it.
- Lamp. These are the only lamps we use in our house. There are more beautiful ones out there but these are cheap and do the job well.
- Stuffed Elephant. You can never go wrong with a stuffed animal or two in a nursery.
- Curtains. I’ve never been a fan of blackout curtains but these are great. My only wish is that they made them even longer.
- Shelf. The shelf is from Ross. It’s always hit or miss there but you can often find some great things.
- Signage. That was a gift, I’m not sure where it’s from.
- Hippo Planter. This is the first thing I bough for this room. I found it on clearance in Kohls and LOVED it! It is currently home to a second generation Golden Pothos that I’ve personally cut and grown which seems super fitting to have in the nursery.
- Laundry Basket. The Laundry Basket is from Ross. Initially, I was looking for a rug for his room and instead came across this. My biggest fear was about the wicker catching and messing up clothes but so far we’ve had no issues. I linked something similar if you’re looking.
- Dresser. It’s nothing fancy but it’s cute and does the job.
- Shark Toy. Local purchase back from Small Business Saturday. If he had a say-so he’d probably say that it’s his favorite piece in this room.
- Crib. I was overwhelmed with the amount of crib options out there so I ended up going with the cheapest one I could find that had multiple options and fit our homes style.
I hope that helps you a bit. Nursery Decor is a big decision. I wish you the best as you search.
