Nursery Nook Number 1

Do full nursery boards overwhelm you? Don’t have a separate room that can be entirely devoted to baby? Or are you really practical and don’t want to devote a lot of space and money on an elaborate nursery plan? I hear you, I feel you and I’ve got you covered. I call it the “nursery nook.” This can be a bedroom shared with a sibling, a corner of mom and dad’s room, half the home office or even a well-ventilated closet.

The nursery nook should cover three main functions– sleeping, sitting (snuggling/reading/feeding), and changing– but you need to do it with at most 2 pieces of furniture. Tricky? Only a tiny bit. So here’s how you might handle these three functions… Sleep in a crib, sit propped up in bed and use a small changing table. Or you could use a compact crib, sit in a rocker and change baby on a blanket on the floor. You may like co-sleeping, change baby on a dresser top and add a comfy glider to the room. See how this work?

For our first sample nursery nook (I imagine this one is incorporated into a master or guest bedroom), we used a full sized crib, a small rocker and you can change baby on a blanket or towel on the floor or bed.  As you can see, using just a pair of key pieces and a handful of accessories (starting with two that we’ve already blogged about this week), your nursery nook can be picture perfect in no time.

Donna Wilson Hobby Horses

I love a new twist on a classic toy and when it features the unique style of Donna Wilson, it’s a must-see in my book.

Stokke® Home™

Stokke Home is a modular nursery furniture range that can be arranged to suit your needs from birth to age 5.

Stokke Home Cradle

This stunning nursery collection most prominently features the incredible Home Crib ($700).

Stokke Home Bed

You can accessorize the crib with a roof, or tent. There’s also a Crib Guard for when you’re using the crib as a toddler bed.

Stokke Home Bed

If you’re not quite ready to start with the Home Crib, the Home Cradle ($360) is a small lightweight bassinet that can be used separately or can hang within the crib. When baby grows out of the cradle, the frame can be used with the changer top or even converted into a small desk.

Stokke Home Cradle

The Home Dresser ($530) is compact with three drawers and can be used with the Home Changer ($250) on top while you need it.

Stokke Home Dresser

I think Stokke has a huge hit with the Stokke Home line. The simple, clean design is relatively affordable, the range can be customized to suit your needs and it’s super fun. How can your nursery not be picture perfect with a collection like this?

Happy Mother’s Day

So it seems Mother’s Day is my one day a year where I step out from behind the page here. We were out of town this weekend so our annual Mother’s Day photo almost didn’t happen, but we made it home with a little daylight to spare and my boys gathered around for a quick selfie before dinner.

While it’s not my favorite photo of the three of us (this morning’s makeup, didn’t do my hair, the boys are long overdue for a haircut and we didn’t coordinate our outfits), I know that in the future I would have regretted skipping this year (our 6th and last in this home). Also since I didn’t expect perfection, we got this picture with a lot less aggravation than it usually requires. There’s a lesson in there somewhere.

Mother's Day 2015

Hope you too had a nice busy day, and even if it wasn’t perfect, at least it was less aggravating than usual!
