If the idea of a traditional baby room — a fluffy, bubblegum-pink powderpuff or a space that resembles the inside of a giant race car — ruins any desire you have to nest, there's a brand-new design option to consider. Better yet, it's one that'll not just get you excited about decorating the nursery but will also make you want to spend more time there than in your own bedroom.
Today, Pottery Barn Kids has unveiled its first-ever nursery collection, created in collaboration with celebrity stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott (you might already be familiar with their work if you recently ogled their makeover of Jessica Alba's kids' rooms).
But if you get a glimpse of these images of fashion-forward nursery rooms and notice nary a sheet untucked or a spill in sight, don't give up hope just yet. As young moms themselves, the design duo know all too well the challenges that come with creating a space suited for a baby but inviting enough for an adult with tastes that don't solely involve primary colors.
"The nursery is such a special, magical place for parents and their new baby, so we really focused on creating an environment that felt warmly familiar — sweet, playful, and cozy for baby, while remaining stylish and relevant for parents," they told us.
The exclusive collection — which has more than 80 pieces — features not just decorative accessories but also bedding, lighting, storage solutions, and even furniture.
Read on for their tips on how you don't have to be a professional stylist with a six-figure income to get a nursery room that's the envy of 3-month-olds and 30-year-olds alike.
