For Nursery Decor, What Is in a Name?

Decorating your home’s walls with words, quotes and phrases is an ongoing home decor fashion that can be easily personalized from the sweetest room of an abode: the nursery.

The nursery functions as the epicenter of nine months of baby preparation decisions. You have no doubt thought long and hard about every detail, such as your furniture, color scheme, fabric and accessory choices. You have also spent hundreds of hours dreaming up the perfect name for your little bundle of joy, and by displaying this choice on the nursery’s wall you are creating the world’s most sentimental and cosmetic gesture.
