Today I designed a simple modern nursery with just a few items that are on my "nursery essential" list for nursery design.
The list is:
- Chandelier or Pendant Light
- Monogram of some type......on the wall, a pillow, bumper pads, etc.
- Dresser / Changing Table
Chandelier / Pendant
(Lights are essential so why not have one that is fabulous, right.)
Monogram(Not actually an essential but everything is better when it's monogrammed)
Rocker(Yes, an essential. You will spend a lot of time nursing and rocking the baby to sleep. There are so many options that are not only comfortable, but stylish too.)
(A soft service is important when the baby starts crawling and it can tie the nursery design altogether)
(Essential? Not really but it is so nice to be able to prop your feet up when rocking and nursing the baby and is a great way to add a touch of color and/or texture to a space)
(You don't have to have a "changing table". A dresser with a changing pad on top is a great alternative that offers lots of storage space and as the baby grows, the changing pad comes off.)
