pint sized nursery

closet baby room ideasI received an email from Nicole asking for ideas since she and her husband recently downsized to a very small San Francisco apartment, and were surprised with a baby on the way.  She is planning to make the walk in closet into a tiny nursery, but the wood paneling leftover from a Murphy bed and other details is difficult to work with. She loves peach and metallics and doesn’t want it to be too modern.  Here are my suggestions for creating a sweet space that still feels cozy and special.  Using washi tape to hang artwork is a great way to customize the walls without creating nail holes in the wood work, and full length curtain panels will create the illusion of a larger window and a taller ceiling.  Since the space is small, you can likely get a really great rug, either round or 3′x 5′ or 4′ x 6′ to soften the room.  I hope this helps, Nicole!  Utilizing a closet can be a great way to make space for baby – we’d probably be trying it if we had a walk in closet!  Our plan is to convert the dining room into a nursery instead . . . it’s a work in progress!

    Nicole, the Babyletto crib would be a great choice for your little one! Not only it is versatile but, convenient too : )
