PICK YOUR FAVE: 4 SUPER INSPIRING BABY ROOM IDEAS

ago

After months of not having the right mindset to shop for tiny onesies and the softest baby lotions, I'm finally in a place where I can do all those things. I feel like I have a lot of catching up to do (my friends are basically constantly surprised by my lack of baby-related stuff, eeks!), and first on my list is a project I've been looking forward to since the very beginning: the baby room! As you guys know, I kind of have a second dressing right now (she shamefully admits). The room wasn't supposed to have that function, but you know how it goes: you stock some of your extra Winter coats in it, then a couple pair of boots you can't seem to part with, and before you know it - boom! it's another dressing. I've been postponing the clean up of this room since forever, but this week it's HAPPENING. Needless to say that I have a pretty big motivation this time around, and I can't wait to start decorating our very first nursery! Over the past couple of weeks, I've been on full baby room alert, and right now I've narrowed it down to these 4 moods:

 

Maybe it's because the room is such a mess right now, but I kinda like the idea of having a super practical room, with 'smart' solutions for tiny problems (how genius is that shelf/clothing rack combo??), a simple crib (I really like the idea of putting a spin on a classic crib by painting some of it in a poppy colour), and versatile nude tones. I'm pretty sure I'll end up applying at least some of these tricks, since a baby room has to be at least a minimum of practical, right?

Natural elements have always had a calming effect on me, whether it be by going back to nature, eating clean, or using all-natural beauty products. And since it's my no. 1 priority to make this room into a place where we can all feel happy and serene, I'd really love to incorporate lots of warm materials (wood, organic cotton), lots of miniature plants (and OMG, those little rain boots!), and a natural colour palette of green and rusty orange. And while I'm usually not a huge fan of wallpaper, it's definitely something I'd consider for the baby room...

I know it's probably 0% realistic to assume a clean room is going to stay that way, but it's a nice starting point, right? Just as for myself, I'm not a huge fan of super 'cutesy' baby rooms (i.e. not too much pink or blue, not too many frills and no glitter), so a clean aesthetic - which doesn't necessarily mean cold - is right up my alley! Also bookmarking: a cute pillow with a subtle embroidery of your baby's name and ultra modern lighting, for a sleek touch.

The fact that I'm leaning more towards a clean baby room doesn't mean I'm completely ruling out some of these dreamy vibes. A baby room has to be sweet and cosy - that's kind of a given. So I'll totally consider adding a cute mobile above the crib or some twinkling lights that ensure sweet dreams. It's all about balance, after all!

I'm super curious to hear which one is your fave, or if you have another one to add? I'm very much in love with the all-natural vibe! :)

So in love. These there are so need. You should go for a mix of practical and clean. Pratical: obvious why
Clean: because it's so cuuuute

Hi Sofie

You should definitely go for the dreamcatcher as in the first picture of the last series (and make it yourself :) ). Your baby will absolutely adore it and once he or she is old enough to even understand the meaning of it, it will be even more worth the effort :) i made one for my 2 kids and they absolutely love it ( because mommy made it especially for them and off course it takes away all the bad dreams). You can find tons of ideas on Pinterest...as you will know probably :)

The twinkly lights with sort of mosquito net/ canopy is also a keeper (afterwards you can make a cosy corner with it, i did it with my girls' room).

So here were my thoughts :-) for the first time.

Love what your doing, love your down to earth kinda attitude!

Hey Kim! O such wonderful ideas, thanks! I really like the idea of adding a personal touch by making sth myself, but I'm not really sure if my DIY skills will allow this :) xx

Superleuke ideetjes! Ik ben benieuwd hoe het er bij jou uit zal zien. Voorlopig is Jude Law's kinderkamer in de film 'the Holiday' mijn favoriete bron van inspiratie :)

Babyroom planning, heerlijk!!Ik ben helemaal fan van de all natural look! Als je nog leuke accessoires in hout zoekt, help ik je graag verder :) De XL paper bag van Tellkiddo heb ik ook nog in de aanbieding liggen ;)

De kamertjes van childwood zijn echt top! ! Ik ben er voor mijn 2 kindjes verschillende richtingen mee uitgegaan - voor mijn dochtertje Bohemian chic. Voor mijn zoontje Minimalism with a touch of stripes. Iiefs

Een bedje van stokke is zeker een aanrader, mijn dochter sliep daar supergoed in en was nog eens mooi om in de kamer te zetten ook.

ik hou enorm van de natuur elementen maar ook wel van praktische zaken in de kamer

I'll take the SWEET DREAM room because it looks like a room for a dreamer

Allemaal zo leuk die kamertjes. Ik heb men bedje van Sebra kili (laatste foto) gekocht op www.hyggeconcept.com en zijn heel blij met het bedje. Zijn ook andere leuke Scandinavische dingetjes. Btw ons babybedje staat nu ook voorlopig in de dressing (zo gemakkelijk en dicht bij ons bed)
Volgens mij ben jij het romantische type dat voor een dreamy kamer gaat
