While some have the luxury of fully decorating a nursery with a specific “baby theme” and worrying about having to completely redecorate later, most of us are looking for something cute and comfortable to welcome the new baby, but without compromising versatility. Here are some of my favourite Stork Craft picks and also a few decorating ideas that we have come across along the way for photo shoots.
1) Cribs: What’s better than a convertible crib that will take your baby into their teen years?
Short on space? In need of something that will take your child from baby through to the day you get to wave them off to college? The Portofino Crib and Changer speaks for itself.
Monza II 2 in 1 Crib is my favourite for anyone looking for a modern look. It’s a fun design that also lends itself to various décor themes. I can see this crib fitting right next to an Eames piece (for anyone who is a mid-century furniture buff), or go completely fun and modern like the images below from Sears.
If I had to pick a crib that gives great value for its overall look, I would have to say it goes to the Venetian 4 in 1 Crib. It’s fit for a little boy or girl, and that extra pyramid detailing along the front and the back rail is amazing! It can convert from crib, to day bed, toddler bed and then a full bed.
2) Organizer Changers: Changers are practical pieces of furniture, but traditional ones do not necessarily lend themselves to being useful beyond those diaper years. StorkCraft just launched its two models of changer organizers and now your changer can transition into a great cube organizer for toys and books.
3) StorkCraft specifically manufactures juvenile furniture, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t always on the lookout for awesome decorating ideas.
Colour: Not long ago we did a post on “The Concept of Colour”. While not everyone will want to paint the nursery walls a bright yellow, keeping the furniture and walls a neutral colour, but using accessories and bedding to get that wow factor is both economical and versatile.
Peel and Stick Wall Decals: What a great way to create a theme in your nursery without having to worry about taking up a big project! We recently put one up for our photo shoot and we think that it gives the room the pop that it needs. These peel and stick wall art stickers are easy to apply and most are removable. Just make sure to read the packaging and see if it says that the stickers are removable, if repainting is not something that you want to do down the road. Here are some from Target that we love.
