Maybe you don’t have a 2,200 square foot nursery like Beyonce, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style, too! Our expert has the tips you need for a glamed-up space!
Michael Craig, founder of Dinette.com and a New York-based interior design expert, gave HollyBaby.com his tips for a Beyonce-worthy celeb baby closet!
“Beyonce’s little bundle of joy is on the way, and word on the interior design street is that her the star-in-the-making is going to have the most luxurious crib in the world (literally and figuratively, of course),” he revealed. “Baby Beyonce apparently is going to have a closet that grown women would absolutely die for. Real Moms might not have Beyonce’s bank account, but they can certainly treat their babies like Hollywood royalty.”
Here’s his tips for creating your own HollyBaby dream closet without breaking the bank (or buying that $5,200 crystal bathtub!):
- For glamour, cleanliness and ease of use… always go with WHITE, or at least a very light color wood tone. Darks are rich and fabulous but don’t work best with babies.
- When it comes to baby’s closet, there should be a small area set aside for hanging (blankets, stuffed animals, onesies — you name it), a medium size chest of drawers or built-ins, and the most space devoted to shelving. Keeping items in view and with quick access is the total vibe of your baby’s closet!
- Don’t forget to plan a shelf for shoes and sneaks — in less than a year most little ones are running around, and it’s a luxury you can afford for your baby. Don’t put them on any floor! They should all neatly fit on a shelf and this will allow you to be super organized.
- There is one item I totally recommend that will change your whole outlook on caring for your baby — leave space for removable hanging laundry bags. TWO of them: one for white and one for colors. Your laundry work just got that much easier.
- Beyonce is known for her catchy hooks, so we just know that her baby’s closet is going to have lots of rich wooden and metallic hooks for hanging luxurious cashmere baby sweaters. You can get the look for less by purchasing hooks at your local hardware store and painting them to match your baby’s theme — pale blues, greens, pinks, or metallics work fabulously well.
