Our Top 5 Favorite Ways to Make The Nursery Natural

Our Top 5 Favorite Ways to Make The Nursery Natural  

We started last week with the walls of our barren nursery and some photos for inspiration.  But the room is still empty -- and still starry-eyed with love for my new infant son, in all of his sweetness, I am reluctant to bring anything into his sphere that isn't as natural and organic as he is -- my hard-working honey also doesn't want to break into his college fund to do it.  So where do we go from here?  How do we take a nearly empty bedroom, and turn it into a nourishing space where we don't compromise style or cheap functionality for health?  Here's my hit list of small ways to make your baby's nursery feel like a safe, organic haven.

The Beginnings of a Natural Nursery: Milk Paint

Baby Amyas is now 15 weeks old...so when my assistant Maddie asked me if I'd like to profile our natural nursery for a blog post, it was a safe -- and completely inaccurate -- assumption that our nursery was set up and ready to go. I call myself a marsupial mama, in the sense that I co-sleep with my little one, and carry him around everywhere I can. Translation: our master bedroom is the functioning nursery of the house for now.
