First things first!! As in all decorating projects, it’s important to create a workable design plan and then see that plan come to life!
Babies, Buttons and Bows – creating the perfect lullaby land!
Creating the perfect nursery is such a fun and exciting project. Again, begin with a theme, and then look for fabrics, accessories, lighting, area rugs and window treatments that match your theme. Look for furniture that’s as maintenance free as possible – also furniture that will grow with your child as they age. You’ll be spending lots of precious moments in this room with your new arrival – so above all, put a lot of love into decorating your nursery.
Sticks and Stones….
We all know how this expression goes! Let’s not forget those young men in our homes, whose passion for sports, race cars, animals, video games, or music are all encompassing in their lives. Think about starting with a bolder color palette to enhance whatever theme you and your son agree upon. Plan to invest in furniture that offers a variety of storage options. And, above all, allow him to express his own decorating opinion as the design process expands.
Sugar and Spice….
Somewhere between “little girl” and “teenager”, girls begin to develop an increasing interest in their bedroom décor as well as fashion. When planning your theme for this often used room, keep in mind that teen fads can be fleeting, so consider achieving your thematic approach through easily replaced accessories such as pillows, lamp shades and artwork.
With careful planning, all your ideas, dreams, wants and desires will come together to create the perfect space for your child – no matter their age!
