By keeping your bedding, curtains, and glider “non-themed” when decorating your baby’s room, you give yourself the flexibility to switch out themes as your child grows. Even better, themed accessories that serve a practical function pack even more of a punch because they don’t take up unnecessary space. This helps you keep your kid’s décor modern, clean, simple, and attractive. These themed storage bins by 3 Sprouts are the perfect example. Each bin has a super cute animal theme and serves a functional purpose. The pink elephant storage bin would be great in a baby girl’s nursery. This precious pink elephant would bring a bit of desired whimsy to simple pink bedding and curtains. The purple hippo storage bin would work well in a boy’s room or a playroom. Purple is a color that brings forth a sense of play and liveliness. The brown owl storage bin would be lovely in a boy’s room and the neutral color palette would work well with a traditional blue or green nursery as well as a more contemporary orange colored nursery. Finally, the yellow monkey storage bin would be super cute in a safari or jungle themed nursery. These storage bins are not only earth-friendly organic, but they are also a way to decorate with both personality and function. Use them for laundry, toys, or for storing extra blankets, towels, and bedding. As your baby grows, move them to the play area and transition to your toddler decor. Note that these storage bins conveniently fold up when not in use. Maker of these storage bins - 3 Sprouts - was created by three friends who worked at high-end design houses such as Kate Spade and Barney’s.
