I think this post by the gorgeous Joy Deangdeelert Cho, is brilliant. She works with my fav, Emily Henderson, to baby proof her living room, while still keeping it stylish.
|The beautiful living room styled by Emily Henderson before baby|
|Fabric made into a fitted sheet was made to fit over the white sofa seat, |
which wasn't standing up to baby spit and leaky nappies
|The coffee table with it's sharp edges was replaced with two giant poufs |
- soft, easy to wipe clean, and also used to put feet up on
|Some of the less baby-suitable objects were removed and in their place |
light, safe and even playful decor elements were added
|I love this long, narrow console table that Emily has placed behind the sofa for putting your drink on etc|
|These heavy, breakable items were replaced and the chest turned sideways |
to prevent baby Ruby from getting to the cords behind the sofa
|Joy was sad to see her bar cart go but it had pretty much everything on it not suitable for kids |
- glass, metal, sharp corners and booze
|Emily found a gorgeous cabinet to go in it's place, |
which houses a mini bar up top and baskets for Ruby's toys below
