Once upon a time, decorating a nursery meant painting the walls pink or blue, purchasing a crib and eventually a twin sized bed. Times have changed! There is nursery furniture of nearly every design, style, shape and color you could imagine. Even the nursery themes have moved upscale. There are themes that range from "Victorian" to "Country French" all the way to "Denim" and "Safari".

These items are much easier to remove as your child grows and starts to tell you how they want their room.
Safety is the most important aspect of designing and decorating any nursery on any budget. Avoid long drapes and curtains. Blinds can be danger...
