One of the most fun things about expecting is decorating the nursery — it’s your chance to build a cozy nest by adding sweet, personal touches. Check out these five items that are sure to look precious in your little one’s bedroom.
You’ve spent a lot of time coming up with the perfect baby name; now it’s time to declare it to the world — and decorate with it! Display baby’s name in a charming fashion with The Penny Paper Co.’s 8 x 10 customized alphabet print (pennypaperco.com, $16). Available in different colour choices, the unframed poster fits nicely in IKEA’s “Ribba” frame.
Skip Hop’s wall decals (chapters.indigo.ca, $25) are easy to apply and don’t leave a sticky residue, so they can be repositioned without worry of marking up surfaces. The “Treetop Friends” design comes with 88 decals of branches, leaves and woodland creatures to help create a delightful forest habitat theme.
From Pottery Barn Kids, these canvas buckets with patches (starting at $25) come in a variety of shapes and sizes as well as in solid colours or a mini-dot pattern. Personalize the bins with your child’s name or, for clutter-free organization, label them by contents, such as “books,” “puzzles,” “games” and “toys.”
At over 4 feet tall, Melissa and Doug’s giant stuffed giraffe (momstobeandmore.com, $99) will tower over your little one and make him or her feel like they’re on an African safari without even leaving their room.
Got a little monkey on your hands? The Lambs & Ivy “Giggles” lamp (dearbornbaby.com, $60) is a playful accessory for a blue-themed room.
