6 Finishing Touches to Add to Your Nursery

Little details to make your nursery feel like home.


Crib? Check. Changing station? Double check. But beyond the must-haves, be honest – is your nursery really ready to bring baby home?

Here are six ways to spruce up the walls, tie your theme together, and add personal touches to your baby’s room that will make it feel nice and homey before the big day arrives.

1. Unique wall decor.


Not sure what to do with all that blank wall space? Think outside the box. Our latest loves are these quirky-cute wall mounts from Fiona Walker England.  They’re perfect for bringing a little more fun to the nursery, but get bonus points for being eco-friendly, with a handmade feel, too.

2. Colorful storage bins.

Petit Pehr

Forget ugly plastic bins or space-stealing toy chests. Tuck away all those tiny toys inside stylish canvas storage bins that double as decor pieces. (Check out some of our favorites from Petit Pehr.)

3. Photos and personalized frames.

Georg Jensen

Capture all of those firsts and hang them proudly. Georg Jensen brings beautiful Danish design to the nursery with this classic frame. A timeless elephant sits in the corner and waist for first photos, birth announcements, sonograms, and more.

4. Some words of inspiration.

How sweet is this magnetic board print from Petal Lane? It adds a splash of color and a happy vibe to the nursery. (Plus, who wouldn’t want to wake up to a little inspiration every day?)

5. Cute (and comfy) rugs.


Rugs aren’t just there for comfort, you know. Consider a unique rug with a simple color pattern that ties into your nursery theme. We’re kind of smitten with our own rugs for just this reason. Each one is a wool and cotton blend and hand-made by artisans. Plus, they’re incredibly soft, so your baby will love crawling around on it.

6. Non-traditional crib mobiles.

Who says crib mobiles have to be big plastic musical contraptions, dangling over the crib? Sometimes, less is more. This sweet and simplePrism Mobile is designed by Clara von Zweigbergk for California-based Artecnica, and have a modern style we just love.
