Summer 2015 has been full of color, but the real “it” colors have drifted towards a softer pastel palette. With colors like soft lemon, light blues, pale lavenders, soft pinks and sage greens we’re dressing up our nurseries in style this summer.
With the flick of the wrist a few brush strokes can go a long way, the pastel inspired colors look great over larger areas, but blank walls are boring. Baby needs something a little more visually appealing for those young eyes, so we’re recommending the ABC wall stickers by WallCandy for your pastel inspired nursery, bonus- they’re super inexpensive. They come in two different pastel shades- blue or pink and double as a tutor, this way junior can walk into his first day of pre-K with the alphabet under his belt.
When it comes to kids we all know we’re going to be blowing through clothes and shoes like it’s going out of style. Kids grow so fast, it’s hard for mom and dad to keep up. So we’re suggesting an investment piece, something that’s going to last up until you’re shipping them off to college. This way you’re getting more bang for your buck. May we suggest Oeuf Classic Birch Mini Library, it’s great for storage and adds a touch of cool to the room.
Everyone loves a good DIY these days, something a little more customized and made with love. Try this easy nursery project- take your dresser and literally dress it up. Create your own patterns and give thrift store finds or hand-me-downs new life.
