Being pregnant is a beautiful time spent discovering a whole new side to your identity: Mama. And what you may not see right now, is how preparing your nursery before bub arrives will be a welcome relief once they are here!
Creating a functional yet beautiful space for bub connects you to the reality that’s growing inside you. A new little life is coming into the world and your home, will be their home too. Nursery preparation is a practical way of expressing what’s inside your heart, and once bub arrives, you will be soooo thankful that you fussed! An organised nursery can turn moments of chaos into moments of relief when everything is right where it is supposed to be.
Imagine this: the moment you bring your little one home, you don’t have to ‘do’ anything in that room except change nappies and care for your little human being, because you prepared the space and the details, in advance. Your ‘perfect’ nursery has suddenly become a sanctuary. It may even become your favourite place to be in the whole house.
3 Tips for styling a nursery easily
1. Use a soft, relaxing, neutral colour palette for the big pieces like the walls, the cot, other furniture. This is a room for sleeping and bright colours can stimulate when you want to create a sense of peace. You will be less likely to change these items in the coming years if they are easy on the eye and bring a sense of calm.
2. Use soft furnishings like sheets, pictures, decals and pillows to accent with 1-2 colours or stunning patterns. These items are easy (and less expensive) to change out as your child or your family grows.
3. Make your goal to be practical, rather than perfect. Being organised is about function.
E.G Store a good stack of nappies within easy reaching distance from your change table.
