Nursery room ? Where to start ?

Thursday, 16 February 2012

 I am surrounded my wannabe mummies, new mummies, pregnant mummies....  
The Year of the Dragon will be a prolific one ! Dragon baby boom on the way !
This post is for my gorgeous pregnant readers, my new mummies readers, all their loving entourage and my loved ones! 
What about the nursery rooms ??
Before getting into a panic ! Where exactly do you start? How should you design the room? What do you need to buy? How much do you have to spend to build a safe, practical and beautiful nursery? 

1.) Before you go shopping in a confused daze, find out where to start, and what you need.
2.) Think of a design scheme, or buy the furniture first? It could be a chicken or the egg question, because some people say to buy a crib and design the nursery around it, or design a nursery and look for furniture to match it. 
3.)However, it is probably easier to design the theme of the nursery first. That way you can actually picture what the room will look like. Also, decorating the room and painting the walls is a lot easier without stepping around the furniture!
4.) Most important items: the crib, change table, chests/ dressers, a rocking/gliding chair. 5.) Then come the accessories: bedding sets, lamp, musical mobile, baby monitor, diapers stackers.....
6.) Then let your creativity takes place ! Most important is: Have fun ! :)

Below are my best inspiration found on the web. Hope you like it and that you too will get inspired from some of them !
