Nesting with a newborn

In this shared bedroom of a young couple and their brand new baby, comfort and calmness reign supreme. From baby's nursery corner to their ultra-compact closets, "less is more" is the motto throughout. But a peaceful, snooze-affirming sleep space isn't the only plus when nesting for their baby – their pared-back approach means they never buy more than they need, saving money for the things and experiences that really matter.

If cozy were a color scheme

The warm camel shade on the walls is calmed with soft tones of gray and beige, setting a peaceful scene for a good night’s sleep. The materials they chose during their baby nesting stage add to the mood, like pure cotton textiles, light woods, and bamboo.

        Simplified dress sense

        This couple’s minimal clothing situation was vital when they were baby nesting, especially when furniture was moved in. Outfits were reduced to a few always-in-style staples, housed in a compact bamboo wardrobe and under-window cabinets with drawers.

            Natural fibers to fall asleep with

            When nesting for your baby, choose only the best sleepwear to guarantee sweet dreams. Soft cotton from more sustainable sources. Crisp linen. Silky lyocell-cotton blends. Each one has its own beauty and benefits, but they’re all great choices for bedtime.

            Newborn essentials

            Regular feeds and lots of naps are pretty much all that a new baby needs. During their baby nesting stage, these parents wanted their nursery corner to be as no-frills as possible, with safe, durable materials and long-lasting functions that will grow up with their little one.
