The ideas in this article over at Pottery Barn Kids are a great place to start if you have a small nursery and want to get the most out of it.

If you were thinking white walls and smaller-scaled furniture- you're wrong! Well, we still like white walls and of course, you have to be sure the furniture can fit through the doorway, but PB Kids has some wisdom here:

"A few large pieces of quality furniture, rather than a lot of smaller pieces, can make a small room feel larger."

"Using a richer, more muted color that coordinates with the bedding you've chose creates a blending effect that's more expansive. "

They also recommend placing mirrors opposite the windows to reflect light and make the room look more spacious, and using pattern rather than sticking with all solids.

Although they seem counter-intuitive to some of us, these are great pointers to keep in mind when decorating a smaller space.
