There’s been a lot of talk going on about babies here at BBRG and I couldn’t be more excited about all this wonderful news!

When I was pregnant one of the things that I had the most fun with was planning the nursery. We didn’t have much space in our apartment since the new nursery was going to be created by putting up a wall in our living room (New York City living, folks!) so we knew we would be limited in terms of space. A year later we moved to a bigger apartment where Lucia could actually have a room and where we weren’t constantly bumping into the stroller, high chair, couch, kitchen table, or each other.  I got excited about the nursery all over again! Well, I was excited about the new place in general but especially about Lucia’s room because she was finally going to get a real one all to herself.

Sometimes I see kid’s rooms in magazines or blogs and I wonder whether a child actually lives in them. They look so untouched and neat. While I certainly tend to be a bit of an organization nut, my baby’s room is definitely lived-in. It’s a very high traffic space where she sleeps, where we play, and where we dance and sing.   I have to spend a lot of time cleaning up since she likes to read all of her books and play with all of her toys at the same time but it’s a baby’s room and the occasional mess comes with the territory. We wanted it to be fun and functional and while I preferred that it fit the style of our home, I wanted it to be all about her – our warm, funny, sweet girl.

So, here is a glimpse at Lucia’s nursery.

Do you have kids? How did you decorate your child’s room?

Check out the corner protectors on our molding. Not great-looking but she always seems to slip in the very same spot so these are a necessity.
