Nurseries are by nature a luxury, even a bit frivolous. All that space for a tiny person – and whose to say baby boy’s favorite color is going to be blue? But on the other hand, they are deeply symbolic. For a parent-to-be, planning and assembling a nursery can be a comforting act of preparing for a new child’s arrival. So we collected ten nurseries from past issues of Rue that stand out as special. Some are sweet, others whimsical. All have elements that can grow with the child or be repurposed into other rooms later. (That cognac-dyed leather pouf in the blush nursery would look great in a living room, for instance.) All have elements of design that inspire our whole team, mommas and not, and that we think may inspire you as well.
