Today I'm happy to be back on the internet and helping Claire, a blog reader looking for some ideas on decorating a nursery for the baby she's having this fall. Even though I'm no decorator, I like playing with mood boards and had a great time playing around online to create these options for her.
For a baby girl, Claire likes a gray, coral and yellow color scheme. I don't care for true themed or super juvenile rooms, so I tried to create a mix of items that could grow up to include a regular bed and desk. That means staying away from matching furniture sets so new additions don't look out of place, and buying quality pieces for long-term use and cheaper things for baby years only.
Claire is also looking for baby boy ideas, but that board is still bouncing around in my head so look for it later this month! Until then, check out the queen of nursery mood boards - Joni at Lay Baby Lay.
And, all of you mamas out there, please chime in with words of wisdom and suggestions. I have no children, so my ideas may lack practicality. :)
