Comments: classy baby room ideas okay, i admit, i'm very picky when it comes to decorating. i recently had a baby and when it came to designing her room, i was in a quandry as to how we ideally wanted to decorate it. I'm a designer, so i prefer to stray from the pack and create a unique environment, yet still maintaining comfort and class. This book brought it all together! The colors, themes and choice of furniture were ideal to what we had in mind. No corny ideas in this book. The rooms are designed so that they can grow with the baby for a while as well. I'm hoping our little girl will enjoy her garden theme for at least 5 more years :) If you're one to do projects, the book instructs you on how they created a few of the room accents...a floral coat rack, for example. Great ideas, great photography, great book.

Comments: Projects but no great ideas I was somewhat disappointed in this book in that it was really geared towards girls' rooms. Some of the ideas were helpful. But in looking back, I don't think that I should have bought this book. The photographs were very limited as well. I was looking for ideas and I didn't find them here.

Comments: An Inspiring Book This is truly an inspiring beautiful book.It revolves completely around babies and their myriad needs.Most of the rooms could be called unisex for an infant.All babies like stuffed animals,mobiles and have the same baby needs,e.g.crib, changing area,rocking chair. I did enjoy the little ideas that came with it-"The Asian Look".How beautiful for a little adopted girl from China.I have a Beatrix Potter "Peter Rabbit" room in blue & white,for my grandson's room.This interested me because there was a vintage theme of Beatrix Potter (pg.148)for girls done in pink and green.They both hold the same characters on their shelfs and I had not seen this book when I decorated. In many ways,you see,we get ideas for either boy or girl on each page.This will of course change (the minor decor)as the child ages. It is good to be reminded of the size of crib slats,lead free paint,and other safety issues.Also,to contemplate flooring, and the large amounts of storing space you will need.And do check vintage toys and flea-market furniture to meet safety requirements. If you are looking for projects,Better Homes & Gardens, has several soft cover books on the subject.These can usually be found in a large Home Improvement Store or Library.

Comments: Decent Book This book gave us some good ideas about how to decorate our nursery. It had great explanations about crib types, sizes and more. I wish the pages were bigger. Other than that its a good book.
