"Here are some expert tips for redecorating a nursery for a second baby: A SENSE OF STYLE: 'You want your home to reflect your personal style,' says Shauna Evans, author of 'What Goes With What for Baby Rooms.' Evans suggests looking through magazines to determine what you don't like, then, when shopping, you'll gravitate toward the things you do like....COLOR: 'If you want to refresh the whole room without going to too much expense, paint every wall,' suggests Evans. 'It's an inexpensive way to change the feel and look of the entire room.'....ACCESSORIES: 'A rug can add a whole new look to a room,' says Evans. She also suggests looking for inexpensive wall art, adding photographs of the baby and hanging letters to spell out baby's name or a favorite family saying."
