It’s the day after Thanksgiving which means that families everywhere have slept off their turkey dinners and are up and at ‘em today decorating their houses for the holidays. That is, at least those families that have held off until this point. There are trees to be decorated, stockings to be hung, presents to be wrapped, and lights to be strung.
Adding a little bit of holiday cheer to your decor is a fun way to enjoy the season and a time-honored tradition in many families. Here at CribCulture, we here to help.
So, whether your garlands have been hung for weeks now or you’re just now breaking out the ribbons and wreaths, try one of these tips to help you decorate the one place in your house that tends to get overlooked - the nursery.
Wintery patterns are fun ways to add some holiday cheer. Consider seasonal bedding covered in snowflakes. Add a red plaid throw pillow or warm blanket to bring a bit of the season in.
Stay Within Your Color Scheme
Not all holiday decor has to be red and green. If your nursery is decorated in a clashing color, opt for neutral holiday decorations. Use silver, gold, or white to bring some holiday aspects to your design.
Swap Out Artwork
An easy way to update your nursery for the holidays is to simply swap out the artwork on the walls with holiday prints. Whether you prefer winter scenes or fun quotes, this is a great way to truly transform your nursery.
Borrow Decor from Other Rooms
Just because you have an extra room to decorate this year doesn’t mean you need to run out and buy new decorations. Borrowing extra wreaths or garlands from the rest of the house will not only help you liven up your nursery but will also help make the design cohesive.
Add a Simple GarlandSomething as simple as a ribbon and a few spools of ribbon can transform a room into a holiday wonderland for your baby. Hang a garland over the crib that coordinates with the decor and call it a day!
