Pick a Bold Wallpaper

Top-to-bottom pattern is a quick way to infuse a nursery with personality. The floral wallpaper in greens, pinks and blues is the main source of color in this space with a plush, light pink rug underfoot. Streamlined, neutral furnishings act as a foil against the abundance of hues and decoration.

Work With What You Have

When you're working with a space that already has exposed brick walls and large windows pouring in natural light, you don't have to do much to create a haven for your little one. Simple, minimalistic furniture in natural woods and soft whites, a laid-back mixture of textiles and a smattering of sweet elephant decor all combine for this urban baby oasis.

Think of an Out-of-the-Box Mobile

Babies start out their new life spending a lot of time on their back, and having an interesting mobile over their crib helps develop focus and motor skills, as well as keeps them entertained. This sweet arrangement of feathers makes for an eye-catching vignette and is safely out of reach.

Try Out a Different Crib

Not your typical crib, this clear acrylic baby bed is completely modern and guarantees you'll always be able to see your little one. Gray wallpaper in a subtle texture plays against the bold blue-and-white geometric accent wall, while a chunky woven area rug establishes tactile appeal.
