Nursery Decorating Ideas For Winter
One of my favorite traditions as a little girl was how my mother used to decorate my room for the holidays. While my baby girl is too young to appreciate this just yet, I wanted to start the tradition by giving her nursery a seasonal update. Plus, I spend so much time playing and nursing in the baby's room that I wanted to refresh the space a little bit.
Add a bit of warmth
My daughter's bedroom decor is pretty colorful (get a peek at how I decorated my nursery here). Now that the weather has turned chilly, I'm craving a warm and cozy space for nap time cuddles and a lighter color palette to keep it bright during short winter days.
When I saw the pictures from our holiday photo session with LBV Baby Boutique Portraits I instantly knew one of the pictures was the perfect jumping off point for the space.
Cute canvas inspiration
Using a combination of accents I had on hand, a few simple DIY decorations and a handful of accents I picked up during a holiday shopping trip, our nursery got an easy update for winter.
Winter nursery decor additions
A 30 x 20 inch canvas from Picaboo was the inspiration for the room. It's a large canvas and will be a great impact piece for holiday decor in our main living spaces in the future.
A cream toss pillow and beaded accent pillow from Target highlight the piping on the nursery glider.
This fabulous Alice+Olivia mug from Starbucks is a glamorous way to sip warm beverages and the lidded top keeps your drink from splashing baby.
A luxe faux fur stroller blanket from Restoration Hardware makes a cozy spot for playing. This would be a fantastic baby shower or holiday gift.
This winter photo on Pinterest (original source unknown) was printed on card stock and lodged into a yummy scented pine cone I snagged at Whole Foods.
Other seasonal accents include a picture with Santa, snow globe and more pinecones.
Special family items
My husband's childhood rocking horse got Santa-fied with a small hat from one of our baby outfits. Having the Santa hat out on display also reminds me to put it on baby girl during the holiday season.
A Christmas teddy bear that's been in our family for almost 20 years sits atop ready for a ride.
I had a blast decorating my daughter's room for the holidays. It was a great start to our own family tradition.
