Sometimes designing a nursery dedicated to just the baby isn’t an option. If you have a nursery space that needs to double-function as an office or guest room, you may need to create a co-space. That way, the baby can ease into crib sleeping while the room is still available for guests, and you can keep things flexible. We work with clients all the time who need to fit a sofa, daybed, desk or other item in the nursery. It’s usually a challenge, but if things fit it’s great to have a double-duty space!

In this nursery design above, the space can be used both as a nursery and a little seating area/spot for sleeping. Having a larger sofa in a nursery is great because it can be used to take a little snooze, or if a parent/caregiver needs to sleep in the nursery on occasion. Getting a sofa with a sleeper function is also an option if there is space for the pull-out. We paired the sofa with one of our favorite cribs that starts out as a bassinet and then converts to a full size crib and toddler bed.

The color palette of the design is subtle and neutral, creating an almost jungle-like theme with the fabulous wall mural and other natural elements. The neutral colors of this nursery were intentional to elevate it a bit so it flows with the rest of the home. Neutral color palettes can also help with a room’s transition from infant to toddler since it’s easier to add in new pieces (or more color)!

Functionality is a huge factor in nurseries that are shared. For example, the wire bin can be a clothing hamper, toy bin, or just general storage spot. The crib is entirely convertible and on wheels, so it can be moved throughout the room or ultimately moved completely out of the room if needed.

We love creating rooms that fit each family on their journey! Shared nurseries are certainly a challenge, but worth it so they can function better for your family. Looking for a nursery E-Design of your own? Check out our design services for more info!
