Whether you’re a brand new mama-to-be or you're welcoming a new baby sister or brother to the family, you know that maternal “nesting” instinct is oh-so-real. The desire to get everything just perfect for your new little bundle of love can lead to sporadic bursts of cleaning and organisation all around the home, and (obviously) in baby’s nursery.
When it comes to preparing the nursery for baby, the endless choices of styles and products available can be a little overwhelming. One way to help you hone in on an aesthetic is to start with one item, whether it’s a cushion, piece of art, or DockATot cover, and use it as your launching pad for everything else.
To provide some inspiration, we looked to some DockATot mamas who’ve created beautiful spaces inspired by their DockATot covers.
Bohemian Dream with "Midnight Garden" Cover
For the romantic at heart, this nursery theme is luxe yet warm. Dramatic floral prints are balanced with earthy pinks and creams. Add a woodsy touch with a woven basket and a blanket ladder. And don't be afraid to try different colour combinations. This colour scheme is surprising but it works so beautifully. Our Midnight Garden cover is a bold and beautiful statement in this whimsical room that brings it all together.
Monochrome Minimal with "Carrara Marble" Dock
Monochrome Minimal is one of the biggest trends of the moment in nurseries & kids' rooms, and, to be honest, we're not sick of it. Not only is it super cute, but it really doesn't get much easier when it comes to styling. Just remember... black... white!
And of course, you can mix in a little grey, like our Carrara Marble Dock. Be sure to add textures like a cozy, woven rug and plush cushions to keep the room from feeling cold.
Organic Modern with "Lush & Fern" Dock
Source & Inspiration: @mariomasmel
If your style tends to lean a little more earthy and natural, opt for an Organic Modern theme. Look for items in soft shades of green, beige, and pink. Choose wooden furniture with a natural-looking finish, and add some plants for even more of an organic touch. Our Lush & Fern Dock is a perfect choice for this theme with it's beautiful pattern of wild greenery and a light beige background.
Tropical Vibes with "Bananas For You" Cover
Take a walk on the wild side with a Tropical Vibes themed nursery. Incorporate bold greens with accents in burnt orange and mustard yellow to create an inviting, gender-neutral space that you'll love for years to come. Add a Bananas for You DockATot and it will blend right into the lush garden environment. As your little ones grow, they'll love to play with their stuffed animals and imagine themselves roaming in the jungle.
