We are sharing the top tips to styling a nursery like you are a pro!
We could spend hours drooling over gorgeous nursery photos in magazines and on social media. The truth is, what you see, doesn't always match what goes on behind the scenes.
Behind the scenes, designers and stylists work hard to make the nursery feel unique and authentic. The goal of course, is to make the nursery come alive and curate a magazine worthy composition that tells a unique story.
Here, we'll share the top nursery styling tips so you too can make the baby's room look more polished and curated.
STYLING THE NURSERY
1. MAKE THE NURSERY FEEL LIVED IN
When styling a nursery, make the room feel like a lived in space. For example, don't put away the blanket that's laying on the pouf or a cute outfit that's hanging on a knob. Rather, these items collectively make the room come to life.
2.MOVE THINGS AROUND THE NURSERY
Styling a nursery involves curating and editing. If you see something gorgeous and special in another room, why not bring it into the nursery to give the space an authentic look. And, for the record- it doesn't have be just nursery décor!
3.DON'T BE AFRAID TO MIX DIFFERENT COLORS AND PATTERNS
Play with color and pattern when styling the nursery. By taking bold risks with color and pattern, you give nursery personality and interest.
4. LAYER IN PATTERnS AND TEXTURES
Give the nursery the essence of laid back comfort by layering the space with patterns and textures. Soften things up by adding throw pillows or blankets. Add depth and warmth with wood pieces, ceramic pots or leather accents.
5. BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Incorporate organic or natural materials into the nursery. Whether it's wood, metal or even plants-they add texture, warmth and a sense of life to the nursery.
6. ADD SOMETHING UNIQUE
Styling a nursery that's magazine worthy is all about elevating the nursery design. Nothing does more to kick the design up a notch than bringing in a vintage piece or something handmade.
7. INCOPORATE ARTWORK
Nursery stylists would tell you that art has the ability to transform the nursery and infuse it with personality and is often put to use when styling a space. From small scale artwork with big impact to a curated gallery wall, artwork can tell the nursery's story.
