Alessia's Nursery Nook in the Master Bedroom

When our youngest daughter was born, we didn't have an extra bedroom to dedicate to a nursery. We knew that she would eventually move in with her big sister, but decided to keep her in our room for the first year, and turn a corner of our master bedroom into a little nursery nook.

We wanted to keep our room as relaxing and non-babyish as possible, while still creating a special and inviting space for our baby girl. This meant embracing minimalism and eliminating clutter. Luckily our San Francisco apartment has some beautiful architectural details, and there was a recess in one of the walls that fit her crib perfectly. We added just a few simple decorations and some DIY projects to complete the space.

This little corner has worked perfectly, and we haven't missed having a separate nursery at all.
