Nursery Inspiration | Boston Newborn Photographer

As a Boston newborn photographer, I see a ton of variety in terms of clients’ homes. I’ve said many times that it doesn’t matter to me what a house looks like (and I mean that!). However, I’d be lying if I said that I don’t get excited when I walk into a thoughtfully-decorated nursery ;). In fact, seeing what people have done with their nurseries might be one of my favorite things about in-home lifestyle sessions. If you love interior design too and are looking for some nursery decor inspiration, you haveeee to check out Project Nursery on Instagram.

From photographing lotssss of in-home sessions over the last few years, I’ve taken note of the characteristics that all of my favorite nurseries share. I’ve presented them in order here in this post, starting with the characteristic that I love the most (and think makes the biggest difference in terms of epic nursery design). I’m no interior designer though, so you’ll have to judge for yourself ;).

1. Accent Walls (or in the absence of an accent wall, a pretty sign with baby’s name) 🙂

And last but not least, I’m sharing Greyson’s nursery just because I love it. It doesn’t have an accent wall or a mirror, but I love the mobile, white crib, and the cozy rug which no longer exists (thanks to my dogs!).
