The 2008 Guide to Baby Nursery Decor

Jul 16, 2008
We're lucky... we live in some very exciting times. The internet has done for nursery decor what the jet engine has done for flight: turbo-charged it! Decorating your baby's room is no longer limited to the handful of stores in your area and a few boring catalogs - these days anyone with a computer has access to the most fantastic array of room decor, crib bedding, and children's furniture ever assembled. Specialty children's stores containing unique baby gifts were once tucked away in some very out-of-the-way places. But nowadays these luxury baby boutiques are available at the click of a mouse, providing limitless opportunities for creating the perfect baby nursery for your child.

Not only that, but online shopping has provided for a much wider array of merchandise. Private artisans are now able to hock their hand-painted wares from their own corner of the internet, allowing for some very superior shopping experiences. Owning a physical storefront used to be a costly endeavor. The elimination of such overhead has allowed the most talented artists an outlet for their hard work. This type of situation is win-win: starving artists get to eat, and you the consumer get the type of unique baby decor that will wow your friends and make your enemies jealous!

The right crib bedding is the heart and soul of any nursery. Aside from the designer baby bedding sets available, many smaller companies have made their way into the market, providing quality girls and boys bedding for infants and toddlers. These crib sets come at reduced prices, but not always reduced quality. In fact, some of the toddler bedding available from these corners of the web is not only one-of-a-kind, but has a matchless handmade quality to boot.

And no baby's room would be complete without personalized wall letters, hand-painted and customized to compliment any nursery. These days you can spell your child's name using sports letters, fantasy lettering, pinks, blues, greens; from the frog to the butterfly, from the knight to the princess. Unlimited ribbon options are available to coordinate your wall words with your nursery paint, rug color, or just about anything else you can think of. Most artists will work with you, and some even accept swatches of fabric and will paint your wooden letters to match that decor. This type of individualized attention was impossible to find before the internet came along!

Infinite accessories are available also, to suit any baby's room. Hand-painted step stools and wastebaskets are one thing, but personalized wall tiles and door hangers are another. And artists will now personalize amazing works of children's wall art as well. Wall hangings and canvas reproductions can often be custom painted with names or phrases of your choice, making for beautiful heirloom artwork. Boring old mass-produced prints are out. Colorful Minute Murals and Giclee paintings are in. Framed or unframed, the right one of these treasures can often define your child's nursery.

And when contemplating unique baby shower gifts, the standard old gift baskets and sleep cozys pale in comparison to some of the fantastic custom-created merchandise now at your fingertips. From monogrammed swarvoski bling rattles to gorgeous hand-made diaper cakes stuffed with tons of goodies - there's always a cure for the mundane, the tired, and the recycled baby gift ideas that have so often been beaten to death. From customized receiving blankets to baby bracelets and mommy jewelry... there are all new ways to breathe life into that next baby shower, and to kick your nursery's decor up a couple of notches!
