HOW DO I KNOW WHETHER MY NURSERY DECORATING PROJECT WILL BE TOO EXPENSIVE?
Focusing on a particular style or theme is often helpful in maintaining a budget when decorating a nursery. By having a plan the DIY'er will make fewer mistakes. Decorating mistakes can be costly to correct. Get things right the first time around and the nursery will cost less.
A PLAN FOR YOUR NURSERY THEME
As you look at pictures fill a folder with photos of your favorite themes. When you make a final choice, create a list of what would be necessary to recreate your favorite in your home and go to work!
I'VE CHOSEN A THEME NOW WHAT?
The advice that I give my clients is to select the theme and then the baby bedding. Since the crib set is most often the centerpiece of the nursery you should take your decorating cues from the print and color of the fabric. If you have chosen an unusual nursery theme or prefer to use your own imagination rather than another decorator's ideas, you may have to purchase some themed fabric and have your crib bedding custom made. Many parents prefer to put their own spin on things to give the space a personalized, one-of-a-kind look.
UNIQUE, PERSONALIZED NURSERY THEMES
When a mom-to-be tells me, "I don't want a nursery theme that a million other babies have." I suggest that she use her imagination to come up with her own ideas. Many have used their hobby or profession as their baby's room theme and have shared pictures of their work in our photo gallery.
