Baby is on the way! July 06 2016

So you’ve got a little one on the way. Hooray! Before the sunny baby showers and endless preparations result in that tiny bundle you've been eagerly awaiting, take the time to do this one important thing for yourself... design a nursery to be your personal retreat, filled with soft fabrics and pleasing patterns. We all know how much time you’ll spend there!

With space at a premium these days, it’s possible this room will be pulling double duty, or is a temporary appropriation. Selecting a versatile color scheme will keep you from completely redecorating the room in the future while trying to manage the ever-present inquisitive nature of a toddler. Thankfully no longer limited to the classic blue/pink binary, we’ve hit upon the pleasing aqua/grey palette.



Starting with something appropriately adorable, pick up these organic cotton hat/gown sets and burp cloths by Milkbarn featuring a very happy whale. These use the sweet classic of animal in a pleasing neutral palette. Continuing on with the irresistibly cute, Manny and Simon make fantastic push toys. This aqua bunny will be sitting pretty on a shelf until your little one is on the move. The modern ink blot print on this fabric bin from Pehr hides a sturdy wire frame that can take anything you can throw in it during a lightning-speed cleaning session. For that little something for yourself, Brahms Mount makes the yummiest throws, like this soft all season cotton one, conveniently machine washable. Wrap up in its comfort during a 3am feeding and snuggle session. As your tiny one grows up, this throw can be a sweet reminder of those first steps in one of the most beautiful relationships possible.
