Bringing home a newborn baby has to be one of the most thrilling things you do in your lifetime.
Bringing your newborn home to the perfect baby nursery makes it even more special.
While you want your nursery to be functional, it may be more important that it be warm, comforting, pleasant, enjoyable and fun for you and your little one.
After all, you both will be spending quite a bit of time in this room.
You want your newborn's room to be that special sanctuary for you to spend time with your little one.
So why not make the baby room perfect!
But no need to worry, you just need a little guidance to help you along to creating the best baby nursery ever!
Preparing your baby's room can be challenging and at times overwhelming.
So to keep yourself from getting too stressed during this exciting time in your life, take some time to do some planning.
A great way to get your thoughts organized is to start a notebook of ideas.
I like to do this when planning on redecorating a room.
This way you can capture thoughts about the room, plan a budget, make a check list of needed items and set a timeline for getting everything done in plenty of time.
A simple idea for your nursery notebook is to cut out pictures from all those baby magazines of nursery rooms you like to help you get started.
You can glue the pictures in your notebook and write ideas and comments around the pictures.
You may even surprise yourself with what you like or how you can adapt a look and feel to fit with the theme of your room.
Mother Goose Rhymes are an incredible source of ideas to choose from in setting a theme for a baby's room.
With all the various animals, characters, and stories that weave throughout the rhymes, you can easily use them to help guide you in your design.
