I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Nursery decor has come along way over the past few years. Color schemes have evolved beyond the traditional pastel pinks and blues, and upholstered gliders now look like stylish showpieces you’d leave out in your living room. In general, there’s also been a shift towards creating environments that can grow up along with a child without the need for a major redecoration project or thematic shift a short time later.
You often have to get creative with the way you lay out and allocate your square footage in a smaller home. Every nook and cranny counts, and for Ella Hall, founder of Stitchroom, the cluttered problem corner in her bedroom actually became the solution to her home’s lack of space for a dedicated nursery. “When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I needed a spot for the baby, and we have limited space in our Brooklyn apartment,” says Hall.
