A nursery
Finishing the nursery decor means you are one step closer to meeting your baby.


Old fashioned take would be to wait until you find the gender and do baby blue or baby pink walls. But this is very outdated. Gender-neutral colors are more pleasing to the eye. Pastels can be great. Having an accent wall can also be amazing and very decorative. Some prefer to paint cute little clouds or so. Another great idea for an accent wall – paint it partially or whole in chalk black so you can draw with your little one.

Black and white decoration ideas

Newborns are not able to see colors. They are very attracted to black and white. So make sure that you have some black and white decorations or rattles, toys, etc.

Black and white toys are the best choice for newborns.

Changing table

The changing table is very useful. Especially if you just had a c-section. They are practical and can be very decorative. But make sure not to get a very big one. Except in the case you have a very big nursery then you are ok. In case you don’t have enough space for the changing table there are smaller versions that go on top of the crib. They are just as good and very practical.

Rocking chair

Every mom will love this. This will be the spot where you nurse your baby and rock her to sleep. So try to find a cozy one. You will choose the style to match the whole nursery. They are not a waste of money, as they do a lot of work for you especially in those teething days when they simply can’t settle on their own.
