Nursery Names

6.22.2009

I love text and type used in home decor. And I love finding inspiration for our future nursery! Seems like the current trend in nurseries is to include the baby's name somewhere in their room. Above the crib is a perfect and obvious place to show off the name you spent so many months picking out:)

Let's check out some other ways that you can feature the baby's name:

{Even just a simple single letter for the baby's initial makes a quiet but bold statement. Image from Rate My Spacer Mod Baby.}

Fun, huh?! Do you guys have any clever and unique ways of including a name in the nursery?

  1. I love the photos! I'm still stuck between elephants and alphabets for the nursery I'm designing. I love type set/alphabet/monograms! I love these fabric letters from PBteen too.

  4. Good find, Roeshel! Tough call between the alphabet and elephant theme. There's gotta be a way to incorporate both..what about an "E is for elephant" theme? or something like that?

    Good find with the PB fabric letters!!

  5. Hey, windhula! Thanks for stopping by! Awesome to meet you:)

    Hmm, do you mean those black shelves in my family room? They are ancient, i think I got them at the Christmas Tree Shop of all places like 5 or 6 years ago(Do you have them by you?) I have other ledge shelves that I got at Linens n Things (doh!) and I've seen ones I've liked at Target and Ikea and West Elm and PB. Sorry, that probably doesn't help!
