If you have a little one on the way, there are plenty of decisions that will keep you up at night, from planning your finances and parenting styles to trying to wrap your head around child care for when you have to go back to work.
However, there's one aspect of preparing that should always be fun, creative, and a joy to work on. We're, of course, talking about decorating the nursery. Since you already have a full plate, we're handing over a slew of beautiful nursery ideas to inspire the look of your baby's first room. And the best part is they're stylish enough to grow along with your little one, so you can focus on what really matters for years to come: creating lifelong memories.
Baby's Secret Garden
Bring the pages of a storybook alive with a secret garden theme in your nursery. Incorporate floral wall decals, plush animal toys, and gold accents for a hint of sophistication. The addition of textures like faux fur, pom poms, and macramé give the room an overall cozy feel.
Don't be afraid to go with dark colors in your baby's room. This black and white nursery is modern but still boasts a child-like whimsy. The white furniture and delicate pattern on the dark wallpaper keep this nursery from feeling too moody.
We love the idea of starting with a clean white canvas when decorating your new nursery, then adding pops of color to tie the room together. This is an especially smart option for parents choosing not to find out the gender of their baby. You can always add finishing touches once the baby comes home.
