MUST-HAVES FOR A DARLING NURSERY

When we talk about decorating the nursery, we're inspired and excited by clean lines, neutral + soft colors while playing with contrasting textures to give the space character.  The nursery should be fun, warm, relaxing, and when it's done, you should want to lay on the floor and dream about the moment you bring your newborn here for the very first time.

Where classic-contemporary meets playful details, The Organizing Store is excited to offer a fresh new collection of Nursery must haves, including blankets, pillows, swaddles and changing table baskets to create an organized, stylish space for your little one. Allie and I hope you enjoy the assortment, because this is just the beginning.

Here are a few of our favorite things to get this simple and sweet look:

The best advice we can give you is to design your nursery by thinking through your baby needs. First, determine your budget. Next, head to Pinterest, create a nursery board and start collecting inspiration and ideas you love. We can't stress enough to start early. You'll stay closer to your budget, find the things you hope for and enjoy the experience with less stress. And remember, it's okay not to be totally ready. No one is, because every couple, baby and home are different. Do your best and we promise, everything little thing will be alright.

What you'll need besides diapers, plenty of wipes, clothes, your arms to hold your little one close and lots of love? A place for your baby to sleep short and long term, food (yours or store bought, whichever YOU prefer - not what everyone else thinks is best), a glider, baby monitor, swing, sound machine, stroller (walks + fresh air are a good thing), car seat, a hamper and plenty of burp cloths and swaddle blankets to get you started. And, don't forget a boppy and baby carrier. These two items will probably be your new BFF's.

Our next tip: Get organized. You will be amazed at how much stuff a baby can use. Be prepared with storage for diapers, burp cloths, wipes, crib sheets, books, stuffed animals, toys and plenty of hangers. We can almost guarantee that draw dividers, shelving and wall racks also come in pretty handy.

Whatever your style, add fun + sweet decor (have you seen our poms?), use the same color hangers, baskets and storage for a neat, uniform look and organize clothing by size and color. This makes it easier (and quicker) to dress a baby and edit the clothing they so quickly outgrow. If you're limited on space, look to your inner DIY ability to create a closet, mini-library, or play space. Part of the fun of designing a nursery for your baby is adding your own personal touches that will be remembered. Finally, take pictures including the details, print them and save them to share one day.
