Design-obsessed parents-to-be, this one’s for you. If your family is about to grow, you’re probably thinking about nursery design. The ideal nursery is a space that feels full of imagination and possibility, that your little one might be able to grow into over the years, and that you won’t mind spending a lot of time in. In our books, that means you should ditch quite a few of the traditional tropes of baby décor (think overflowing toy bins, bows, and the like).

To inspire a design that you and your baby will adore, we’ve gathered 12 sophisticated examples of nurseries that get it right. From peppering in vintage details to balancing pastels with sleek, grounded counterpoints, these adeptly executed abodes channel a timeless aesthetic that promises to grow along with your little one. Our favorite children’s rooms keep things chic and playful with a vibe that stands the test of time. These elegant nursery essentials are the perfect place to start.
