For this city nursery designed by Interior Design Fair, a large armoire with sliding pine doors and open shelves on each side provides flexible toy storage. Wire baskets hold smaller stuffed animals, fabric bins provide a home for larger toys, and woven baskets currently storing cloth diapers and receiving blankets can transition to hold collections of small toys as the child grows.
A gold starburst mirror adds a little color and a lot of glam to this sweet, neutral nursery on New York’s Upper East Side. A traditional white dresser is topped by a changing station, with a soft pink basket to hold supplies. Walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Dove Wing.
The round shape of balls can make them a challenge to store. For larger-sized balls, a slide-out bin is a smart way to group and hold the balls together. A hanging mesh bag or standing wire bins also work for medium or large balls, while portable baskets and bins are a good choice for smaller baseballs, softballs or tennis balls.
Now tuck in as many stems of winterberries as desired. Keep them going in the same direction as the already-assembled pine cuttings. Push them down far enough to hold them securely in the wire structure of the wreath. Toss any berries that fall off into a martini glass to display at your bar or on the mantle, or add them to a basket of potpourri in the guest bath (remove the berries when they start to go brown or shrivel). Keep winterberries away from pets; they can be toxic.
