How To Design Your Babies Room So It Looks Awesome!!!

The vintage feel of the wallpaper sets the tone for this sweet room and it can be very gender neutral which in my opinion is awesome because why do boys rooms have to always be either blue or brown?

How do you design your babies room so it is as beautiful as functional.  Treat the design of your child's room like the ABC's, it is a process and has to be in a particular order.

This childs room, could easily be a babies room with a crib on the other side.  There is a place for grandma or mom to sleep and keep a close eye on their newborn.  The color palette is soothing, but interesting.  The rooms pattern placement was carefully considered and brings a lot of balance in placement.

First, take into consideration the functional needs that your babies room requires. Next, consider the aesthetics.  These two elements will fight with each other and there will have to be a give and take of form verses function throughout your design process!

 

Now, I have to say that I think this babies room is just fabulous.  Love the juxtaposition of the modern with the vintage.  I truly believe that millwork is one of the best investments to make a room look warm, rich and interesting!

Steps as follows:  1. Write down the important functions you will need in the room. 2. Measure your room. 3. Take before photos of your room and include all walls and angles.  4. Tape the furniture layout on the floor of the items like the crib, rocking chair, changing table and daybed.  5. Then, gather inspirational images or just pin the ones I am posting.

How pretty is this and such a soothing color palette.  Love how the outdoors captures your eye and the bench seat invites your to sit and read there with your child.  The rocking chair looks very comfortable and I think this is a must have.  The good ones run around 11-1800 dollars, but are so worth it!

Remember that a new mom will be very tired and to me there are few musts haves that a room needs with a newborn.

Lots of layering in this room, but not too cluttered.  Also, the pattern placement on the different pieces are very well placed and it brings balance to this room.  Even though this room is blue, it has a very warm and cozy feel to it.  It is also a girls room and not the typical cliche of pink that we always assume a girl should have.  Well done!

One of the must haves is a safe and secure changing station.  Make sure the changing table's height is at your stance level that is safe for the baby when changing diapers and clothing.

Never turn your back to reach for anything without your hand on the child, so make sure there is room for everything you need to do this task.

Two, a rocking chair or daybed to lay and nurse the baby.  If you can have both, that would be perfect and when you have grandma stay overnight to help, she has a place to sleep.  This will be so worth your investment with all those exhausting nights of taking care of your baby.

Another functional element to consider is black out drapes that will help your baby know that it is time to sleep.

I'm a big believer in wallpaper and have always been the last 10 years of doing interior design!  Here is an amazing room that the wallpaper has a huge impact on the design.  This wallpaper brings cheer and happiness to anyone walking in and will change your mood into a positive one with the whimsical creatures dancing on the walls!

As for the aesthetic part of decorating your babies room, make sure to bring all your inspiration photos with you when you shop.

Try not to purchase anything, until you have all the items picked out and then lay them out on a table and study them.  

Another example of wallpaper adding depth and interest into this babies room.  This crib and picture are simple and compliment the patterned wallpaper.

When laying out all your images of furniture, pillows, rugs, see if where your items are placed brings aesthetic balance to that room.  Ask yourself if  there too many or two few patterns on one side of the room? These are questions the interior designer ask's of themselves on all their projects.  

When you feel good about your choices, then start to make all your purchases.

This vignette is very creative and functional at the same time.  It is really a dresser that has been used as a changing station and storage.  The framing out of this nook with the striped drapes and valance make this space fun and inviting!

Just so you know when you attempt to design, that it is not as easy as it looks and that is normal for even the professional interior designer.  

Here is a bright and cheerful child's room.  Notice the soft area rug for the baby to play and crawl on.  Love that they included nature thru adding birds and butterflies that gives this organic design a warm and relaxing feel.
