Nursery Decorating Tips

Use these tips to piece together a playful post for your own little steed.

1. If you have other children, add a couple toys to the nursery to keep them occupied while you've got your hands full changing diapers.

2. To keep the nursery cohesive with the rest of your home, echo the window coverings from other areas in the baby's room.

3. Branch out beyond baby stores! A timeless chair that works for rocking your baby now can be sent along when she heads off to college. No one-trick ponies here!
