Color of the Month: Aqua

By PBK Editors

ColorStory-Swimming

Create a refreshing aqua nursery inspired by our favorite color this month: Sherwin-Williams Swimming SW 6764. From under-the-sea elements to geometric lines, aqua is the perfect summer shade to design a nursery with.

1. Let in the light in with a fun drape, like our aqua Pom Pom Sheer. For added versatility, layer it atop a blackout drape.

2. Under-the-sea dreams come to life as your little one falls asleep under our Ibiza Mobile.

3. Give your nursery some understated appeal with a summer-ready print, like in our Preston Nursery Bedding.

4. Add an exotic touch from a far-off place with a snuggly Ibiza Elephant Plush.

5. Bath time gets a splash of aqua with a set of our Geo Washcloths.

The ABCs of Style

By PBK Editors

Stylized letters are one of our favorite ways to add a special touch to a child’s room. Whether it’s wall decor or a personalized Anywhere Chair, here are a few ABCs of decorating that will bring style to their space.

1. Furniture that speaks. A statement piece that incorporates letters is a great place to start. Our new ABC Dresser stands out in a nursery, while a personalized headboard – like our Sylvia Bed – complements your child’s bedding. Here are a few of our favorite pieces to help anchor the room:

2. Pillows with personality. If you’re looking to add some style to what’s already in your space, try a few pillows that pop. A simple embroidered or appliquéd letter adds a special touch to make the room their own. See some of our favorites:

3. Walls that talk. Artwork and decorative hooks are fun accents for a room, and a personalized approach makes them even more unique. For added function, try a growth chart or chalkboard with lettered style. Here are some of our ideas:

4. Everyday essentials tailored just for them. Whether it’s a backpack or storage bin, daily-use items are perfect for personalization. Along with adding style, a letter, name or even a recognizable patch keeps things from getting lost or forgotten. These are our picks for everyday essentials:

5. Seasonal gifts that are extra special. Add a tailored touch with items perfect for special occasions. With spring break and Easter approaching, our favorites are personalized towels and embroidered baskets. Here are some options for this season:
