Nursery Basics

By H. Iacobacci-Miller

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!

You can always make it feel more like a nursery by hanging a mobile, accessorizing with stuffed animals and baby pictures. Use the theme as an accessory instead of the basis. 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...
