Erin of DIY on the Cheap needed a new sleeping solution for her two boys - her youngest was sleeping in the nursery, while her older son was in the guest bedroom. She decided to create a shared "big boy room" for both and hit it out of the ballpark!
When I found out I was pregnant I immediately started thinking about the nursery. Being that interior design is my profession I was excited to get to design something from scratch for myself for a change. I knew I did not want the typical baby nursery. No baby blue or pink, depending on the gender. It was important to incorporate furniture and accessories that had meaning in them. I wanted to combine some found vintage pieces with more modern and straight lined pieces. And we can’t forget the color. I love color so I knew I wanted to go bold.
When you think "peg rack" do you picture a mudroom or entryway? Besides being utilitarian, they can also be quite attractive especially when you hang pretty things from them. Amy covered a wall of her daughter's nursery with peg racks and made them herself so they'd exactly fit the space.
Caleb's bedroom was perfect for him...until he outgrew it. His room was lovingly decorated with dragons but his interests were changing and as he inched closer and closer to becoming a teenager it was time to grow up his room as well. Caleb's mom Brandi reworked his room into something more mature that better reflected her son's changing tastes.
A crib is one of the few essential purchases new parents will make. It's the safest place for a baby to sleep and you likely don't already own one. Shopping for a crib can be overwhelming because there are so many to choose from with a huge range of quality, aesthetics and cost. We're here to help with our list of what we consider the ten best cribs at every price point: cheap, moderate low, moderate high and splurge.
We have never been fans of gender-themed or too-childish rooms. That's why we decided to go with a gender-neutral/unisex theme for our son Efe's nursery. A few things that were in my mind before designing the nursery were, one: having a Scandinavian touch and using lots of black and white (like the rest of our house), two: re-use of existing furniture, and three: to have lots of free space while keeping it affordable.
We already have three little boys, so designing a sweet feminine space was really challenging and fun. I tried to upcycle, thrift, and include as many handmade details as possible to be both original and frugal.
Having a statement or accent wall in a kids' room is a great way to customize a room's decor. You can paint a bright wall, add a mural, or use wallpaper. But we love this unique idea for using complementary wallpapers to create a patchwork wall.
As soon as I found out that my second child was going to be a boy I knew I wanted to use yellow and grey in his nursery. As I was designing the room I felt like it needed something more so I decided to add in pops of red. I think the red makes everything more interesting and keeps things feeling fresh.
