Crib Simplicity

There was a time when I used to think that I would have a nursery with the grand crib and all its matchy-matchy dressers.  I pictured my baby nestled soundly in a bed that would rival something out of a fairytale.  But years later, pregnant and armed with ideas from my Pinterest and Etsy accounts, I chose Storkcraft’s Bradford 4 in 1 crib in white for its simplicity and versatility.  A far cry from what I had pictured for my future nursery when I was growing up.

 

When it comes to furnishing a baby’s room, the crib used to be the central focus and the “piece de resistance”.  Headboards were ornate and hefty, there were carvings, layers of wooden molding, and colour even included options of “look-at-me” metallic finishes.  All other decor in the nursery took its cue from the crib.  The past few years, however, have seen a big shift in style to where the crib has become more subtle and streamlined.  Rather than dominating a room with a crib’s decorative detailing, the devil-in-the-details now lie in more simple sleep accommodations that can help showcase well-edited and meaningful accessories.

 

Below are some inspirational, modern rooms.  They have simple, white cribs in spaces that are nothing short of a whole lot of personality.

For a similar look as the above rooms, create your little one’s nursery with the Storkcraft Sheffield 3 in 1 Crib or Mission Ridge 3 in 1 Crib (as shown directly below) and personalize it with unique accessories, Etsy finds, and DIY projects.  The Sheffield and Mission Ridge are currently both under $100.00 at Walmart.com and are convertible to accommodate as your little one grows.

Hello, Sorrento

Sorrento.xcf 7.10

It’s a summer full of new products here at Storkcraft!  The Sorrento 3-in-1 Crib and its matching change table is one of the newest collections to join the Storkcraft family.  We heard our fans’ request for a crib with wider slats for extra sturdiness and visual impact, and combined this with a handsome silhouette.  Our favourite features are the swooping sides and the generous wooden mouldings that run along the rails because, after all, the devil is in the details!  It is a 3 in 1 crib that will transition into a daybed and full bed so it will also grow with your baby in the years to come.  Available in espresso, cherry or white finish, it is already available at Walmart for $249.99.

The Bayshore: Modern Goodness

Decor cult-favourite sites, Pinterest and Apartment Therapy, are always featuring refinished midcentury modern dressers. But while do-it-yourself projects are inspirational, not everyone has the time or tools to recreate that midcentury modern look.  So… Enter Storkcraft’s newest addition to its growing family:  The Bayshore 3 Drawer Dresser!

It has been a while since Storkcraft has come out with a completely new dresser design, so we are excited to have Walmart USA feature the Bayshore 3 Drawer Dresser in a two-tone espresso/white (as seen below) and also grey/white.  Not only is the overall look updated for a contemporary nursery (In fact,I could see this being great storage for any bedroom), it also features Storkcraft’s new, exclusive Tufflink Assembly.  Say goodbye to those pesky bags of hardware and Allen wrenches.  The Bayshore has parts that simply lock into place with the sound of a click for easy and sturdy assembly.

Paper Decor

With Storkcraft setting up a permanent showroom at headquarters, it’s got me thinking about simple, DIY nursery decor.  Paper accessories are an easy and creative way of infusing colour, texture and dimension in a kid’s room.  Whether it’s for a boy, girl, or even a shared room, paper decor items can be customized to pretty much any colour under the rainbow.  The fact that they are cost effective (Yay!) and lends itself easily to future decor changes (Double yay!), need we say more?  Here are some of my favourites.

^Paper tassels have been taking over Pinterest, from party garlands to nursery mobiles.  It’s so easy to make, can be done in pretty much any colour that tissue paper would come in, and oh-so-sophisticated!

As with any other decorative items in a children’s room, always be reminded to make sure that they are secured properly.  Hang them far up and away from cribs and play floor areas to keep away from curious little hands.
