Gone are the days of choosing between pale pink and sky blue for baby's nursery. You have the entire spectrum of colors at your fingertips these days. However, with the influx of options comes the stress of finding the right palette, furniture and decor for your bundle of joy.
That’s where the Dallas Design District comes in. You see, we offer more than post-modern kitchens and high-fashion living room designs; there’s also an impressive array of chic bedroom furnishings nestled into the warehouses along the Trinity River. Below are our picks for the best nursery decorating essentials, sourced from our showrooms.
A big trend in nurseries is painting or applying a vinyl design to the wall by the crib. Instead of hiring an artist, why not apply hand-painted wallpaper instead? Gracie features tree and floral Chinese, Japanese, American and European scenes. If nature scenes aren't your style, the studio also offers textured wallpapers, including metallics, papier chinois and silks.
In no time at all your baby will be crawling around the room, and you want nothing but the best under those fragile hands and knees. The Rug Company has the finest options available in its assortment of hand-knotted, Tibetan wool rugs. Check out this Chiesa yellow and gray rug, inspired by the geometric tiled floor of a Sicilian church, and this blue and green Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby piece, featuring a friendly-looking crocodile mid-snap, flicking his spiked tail. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby's whimsical collection of animal rugs also includes a tiger on a nocturnal hunt, wide-eyed frogs and a dancing peacock.
Furniture and Lighting
Give your baby's room a sophisticated edge with this beautiful Marseille chandelier from Ebanista. And forgo the traditional rocker or glider and opt for a more stylish and memorable alternative such as this vintage grasshopper chair and ottoman or leather lounge chair from Again & Again.
Put the finishing touches on the little one's nest with fresh, fun designs from F. Schumacher. Add a throw pillow in a pop of color, pretty printed drapes or a sweet stuffed animal to give the room a little personality.
