White might be simple, but never dull.

One of the best parts of prepping for Baby is designing that special place that  he or she can call her own – the nursery. With all the time you’ll be spending in there together, you want it to be warm, inviting and fun. 

Creating the nursery should be fun, so don’t add any unnecessary stress. Your baby will never know the difference if she’s living in a room with four solid colored walls or a room with a one-of-a-kind mural.

Choose paint hues and bedding that are neutral like white, pale yellow or cream, then if you choose you can always add gender specific colors later. Pinks look fantastic with any of the aforementioned shades, as do various blues, so you can add on accents with curtains, rugs and other adornments later.

If you’re working with a smaller room, don’t go crazy with lots of furniture. The three key pieces for any baby room are a crib, a dresser with a changing table topper and some sort of rocker or comfy chair where you can lull your infant to sleep.

Make the room more baby-friendly by adding soft touches – literally. If your home has hardwood floors, consider investing in an area rug where your little cutie can lay, roll around or play in comfort.

You'll be spending a lot of time in the nursery (sometimes in the middle of the night) so make sure it's soothing, stimulating, happy, and organized.
