When I first started nursery planning, figuring out the layout of this room was the biggest challenge for me.
Ben’s nursery is a large bedroom, a design challenge I never anticipated. A room too small? Of course, that makes sense. But a room too big? I never saw that as a potential issue and although I’m so grateful for the extra space, it made the initial plans tricky!
That’s when I enlisted the help of Modsy and I’m so glad that I did.
Throughout the planning process, Modsy was extremely helpful because their service allowed me to visualize the space (with exact dimensions of our furniture) before making any official furniture purchases. I felt a lot more comfortable when it came time to buy these items because I was able to see how they would look in the space and how they would coordinate with one another.
Pretty awesome, right?!
I’m really happy with the final layout of the nursery. I was worried about this space feeling too empty, but it feels very warm and cozy. And I’m happy with the furniture placement in this space. The nursery with the rocker in the corner is a wonderful focal point right when you walk in, and the long dresser as the changing table worked out perfectly.
I’ll definitely keep you guys updated as we “live in” this space and figure out what’s best. I know I’ve gotten some questions on Instagram about how the rocker works for breastfeeding, how we like the baby monitor, how the dresser works for changing, etc. I’m making notes of all of these questions so I can answer them after we have had plenty of experience using them. If you have any questions in the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out and I’ll add them to my list of updates to check back in.
This slim bookshelf was actually the last piece I added to the room and I am glad we put it in here. It fits on that small wall perfectly and acts as a nice spot to display cute baby accessories! I mean, how cute is that vintage camera nightlight?!
