I remember being SO excited when our first was well on his way; every week that passed wherein his perfect little tiny body grew and prepared itself for the big reveal meant that I had to have the perfect nursery. One might say I was fairly consumed with the planning of that first nursery, and I don’t regret a thing. I’ll always remember that experience with fondness, even the night that I went into labour at 5 a.m., breathing through a few contractions as I finished putting the room together.
One might also say I’m a procrastinator.
The only hitch was that it had to be a shared space, as we hosted family and friends and business associates quite often living in the hub of a big city (then). Making a shared space out of a walk-in closet isn’t the easiest, but it can be done! As you will soon see from this collection of closet nurseries…

Nurseries were practically made for pastel palettes: the soft colors are gentle, sweet and light. Gray and teal offer a versatile basic palette suitable for boy, girl, or even gender neutral nurseries. From vintage-inspired looks to bright, bold pops of color, it’s amazing the variety of nursery looks you can get with gray and teal as your starting points.

How often do you look up at your baby’s ceiling?
I’ll admit that I almost never do. It was weeks in our new house before I noticed a large nail that had been pounded into Ani’s ceiling above the dresser by the previous residents (I’ve since removed it). Other than that, the ceiling is something I never think about in most of my rooms.
But these 12 nurseries have the MOST amazing ceilings I’ve ever seen. From wallpaper to stencils to fabric-lining, these ceilings are jaw-dropping! And a baby lying in a crib in one of these nurseries will certainly have something fascinating to look at while they drift off to sleep.
