In case you missed last week’s Twitter party with zulily, Jenny McCarthy and Hollywood Hot Moms co-founder Natalie, Klein, today we have an excerpt from the recap with nursery style tips, tricks and trends! Check out zulily for the full scoop.
What was your inspiration for the Too Good nursery line?
@JennyMcCarthy: The inspiration was to make great, safe, fashionable bedding that all mothers could afford
Q1: What are some creative accents to add in a nursery?
@JennyMcCarthy: Wall art is fun! But less is more. The focus on my bedding is on the bedding. It’s not good to clutter a room. The butterfly bedding is another one of my favorites!
@Clarissa_Laskey: some creative nursery accents are murals (stick on or hand-painted), esp. with a pretty tree! I also love writing my kids names in the snow & sand and framing photos of that for their rooms.
@HollywoodHotMom: fun lamp shades
@PhyliciaSP: I love fun bedding It always makes the nursery. Wall art, mounted bookshelves
@vanrobmac: Ruffles and flowers for my girl
@Butterflybab: Decorated with a butterfly mobile
Q2: What are some fun ways to decorate a girl’s room?
@JennyMcCarthy: Rug accents and decor blankets because they’re both cute and useful.
@mellanhead: Butterflies, pinks and browns like a plaid. we did monkeys, my mom made the blankets and crib skirt.
@Clarissa_Laskey: I love a beautiful, but simple chandelier. I also love a canopy over a little girl’s crib/bed. I also love a simple chair with your little girl’s name or monogram on it. [Another] fun way to decorate a little girl’s room is do a tree or something similar with her little handprints as leaves.
@vanrobmac: Mine is animal safari with lots of zebra! And I made some big tissue pom poms for the ceiling
@PhyliciaSP: I don’t want alot of pink but if I have a girl I’d love a cute pastel theme. My sister had a ladybug theme — red black and white so my niece could grow with it and not look like a nursery anymore
@S_thirtymommy: Mirrors everywhere
@martiferg: my girls share a room & it’s the princess theme!
Q3: What are some ways to get the most out of a small nursery?
@HollywoodHotMom: maximize space! Lots of storage against the wall
@mellanhead: add rolling drawers under crib, use top of dresser changing, shelves on the wall. my daughter’s room is small so we used book cases for items and storage under crib
@PhyliciaSP: Shelving! We found cute shelving squares to put keepsakes in and another shelve for wooden letters. And we love our stuffed animal net that’s in the corner of my sons room. Out of the way and looks cute.
@Butterflybab: Be organized-get an under the crib storage bin for blankets, clothes, or diapers. skip the diaper changing table and get a good dresser, then put a pad on that
@Clarissa_Laskey: buy a convertible crib and lots of fun storage bins in neutral colors that can grow with your baby. And a bench style toy box that is functional for storage, but also offers storage is great for a small nursery.
@S_thirtymommy: Multifunctional pieces & utilize wall space
@vanrobmac: I have two shelves under my changing table, I have 6 baskets there to organize diapers, wipes etc!
@bybreenah: We have the dresser in the closet
@martiferg: look for multipurpose furniture. That’s what we did.
