Nursery design--and making it really functional!

We moved twice while I was pregnant with Otto, the last time into a one-bedroom apartment, and then into our house when he was 3 months old... so I wasn't able to decorate a nursery for him until then (and it's still not "finished"). But nursery design can be so fun and cute--but baby rooms also have to be super functional. THAT I am a pro at by now!!

This week on the Your Home Story podcast, Ashley and I talk allllll about style plus function for nurseries. We cover all the essential items you need in the room, ways to add your personal design touches (without going too trendy and doing something you'll be tired of soon), some favorite pieces, and some inspirational baby rooms. We also talk about how to design a nursery that’s perfect for baby but still fits within your home!

Resources and inspirations:
