This month our May Monthly Mood Board was devoted to all things baby and we put together a gender neutral nursery. The items we picked for the monthly mood board are great all on their own or you can use those items as a base for your nursery and expand on the décor to make it more suited to either a boy or a girl. For our last post we transformed the nursery into one fit for a boy and today we will be selecting additional elements to add to our gender neutral nursery to transform it into a nursery fit for a girl. By designing the nursery in this way you can get a head start on everything and then add the last little details once you find out if you are having a boy or a girl… or better yet, these items can easily be added once baby has arrived if you are getting surprised. Check out below for our picks to make this nursery fit for the most precious of little baby girls.
1.) First we selected a rug to add to the room. We love the girly detail and fun colors that this Candy Dot Rug from The Land of Nod adds to the room. It brightens the space and makes it more fit for a little girl, but is still modern and works with our theme. The yellow in the rug nicely picks up on the yellow finish of the crib.
2.) Next we found these fantastic Ombre Ruffled Curtains from HGTV. These particular ones were made from bed sheets. You can find complete DIY instructions here. We love the ruffley detail that adds texture to the window area and another touch of girleyness to the room.
3.) You can never have enough storage in a kid’s room. We love the Tricolor Wall Shelf in Pink from The Land of Nod. It makes the perfect spot to start your child’s book collection. Use just one shelf or stack a few and make a bookshelf wall. It is secured to the wall so there is no fear of a bookcase tipping over on your child.
4.) No nursery is complete without a great rocker or glider. We selected the Joya Rocker in a Yellow body fabric with a heather grey pillow and white wood base from Monte. We love the modern, yet classic design of this rocker as well as its size. This is another rocker that will fit into even the smallest of nursery spaces. It has a tall supportive back to ensure the ultimate in comfort for mom or dad on those late nights.
5.) Every nursery needs some lighting for those late night feedings. We chose the Checkmate Floor Lamp in Pink from The Land of Nod. We love the modern, but classic lines of the lamp base and the pop of color it will add to the corner of the room.
6.) Lastly, we fell in love with the Euro Storage Suitcases – Pinkberry with Yellow Handles from Rosenberry Rooms. These add a great pop of bright, girly color to the space and make the perfect place to store some items out of site and out of babies reach. Use the small top case to store some extra burp cloths or swaddling blankets for those late night feedings or when rocking her to sleep.
