Blushing With Delight
Texture starts from the ground up in this sweetly serene nursery with a plush flokati rug. The light pink and white color palette combines with gauzy curtains, brass accents and chunky knit throws for an airy yet warm atmosphere. Overhead, blush wallpaper is studded with golden stars so baby girl can fall asleep to a celestial sky.
The Mountains are Calling
Surrounding this boy's nursery, cool blues and grays combine for a peaceful mountain mural inspired by the Alaskan wilderness. Warm woods bring a touch of the forest indoors and a faux bear blanket is a playfully rugged addition. Open cube shelving allows the mural to shine through while providing storage spots for favorite books and toys.
For the Love of Flowers
The large-scale floral wallpaper in earthly neutral shades sets the scene for a romantic but not-too-girly nursery. Pillows pull their hues from the wallpaper and a variety of textures create a warm contrast against the contemporary acrylic crib. Underfoot, a herringbone rug in pearly whites delivers tone-on-tone pattern to the room.
Fly Me to the Moon
Let them drift off to dreams of the stars under a map of constellations. Crib skirts featuring illustrations of planets and a plush ball sending a rocket flying into space further the stargazer mentality. To accommodate two cribs without losing tons of floor space, the pair is placed end to end against the wall.
Lively + Girly
Go on and embrace color and whimsy. Light gray walls balance the brilliantly colored floral curtains, which are sweet and playful but also worthy of growing up with your baby girl. Bright teal and pink accents carry energy throughout the space, and a graphic-patterned rug grounds the room in contemporary style.
In My Own Little Corner
Petite spaces with unusual architectural details are calling out to be nurseries. Here, an angled nook is transformed into a cozy spot perfect for a sleeping baby. Whimsical cacti wallpaper is a quiet background to the modern crib, floating shelves house stuffed animals and books, and exposed bulb sconces add a soft glow to the space.
Classic in Blue
Blue damask wallpaper is a preppy setting for the simple wood crib and gallery wall of prints and colorful monogram. The gray glider with white piping gets a shot of color with a sunny yellow pillow, and the blue-and-white striped rug perfectly reflects the hues of the wallpaper. Pictures shelves keep books on hand for parents and kiddos alike, making it easy to find the bedtime story he wants.
Animal themed without going on safari, this sophisticated nursery is encompassed by wallpaper featuring beautiful black-and-white animal illustrations. The long, narrow space lends itself to a galley-like environment with the shelves and dresser, as well as the crib and play table, sitting opposite of each other, while a comfy sofa takes its place at the head of the room for parents to enjoy the dreamy atmosphere.
Peter Rabbit heads to the city in this urban take on the classic book. Graphic wallpaper creates a focal wall behind the clean-lined twin boys' cribs. Simple bunny silhouettes and a rocker nod to the beloved tale, while a heathered gray sofa is the perfect place for parents to feed bottles, snuggle up for story time or grab a much-needed nap.
Pale woods and snowy walls create a room that refuses to be about the fuss and muss. Simple geometric prints are a lovely artistic display and ideal for baby's developing eyes. Woven baskets with lids are the heroes of nursery storage. Stow away toys or stuffed animals, extra blankets or dirty clothes and no one is the wiser.
Try this twist on the traditional monogram and put your kid's name in lights. The rustic pine plank wall is an intriguing juxtaposition against the Hollywood styling of the marquee letters and the soft gray color palette. Curtains with a brown-and-white leaf motif usher in a delicate pattern.
Sparse in color, rich in textures, this nursery stands in complete contrast with its black-and-white color scheme. Textiles play a major role in conveying coziness — a faux fur rug is layered on top of textured carpet, a knitted pouf is paired with the rocker and wool lettering takes place above the crib.
Babies come with stuff (so much stuff!). Keeping their nursery minimalist is pleasing for you and them. Clean white walls, streamlined furniture and sparse accessories mean you have room to breathe and enjoy being in a calm setting. Subtle animal theming, from the panda mobile and fuzzy sheep blanket to the faux flamingo taxidermy, injects an element of fun into this room.
Head to the tropics with this sunny nursery full of color-drenched fabrics and elements of green, from the fiddle leaf fig to the vibrant cubby storage. The Eames rocking chair is a clever option for smaller nurseries that don't have a lot of room for a glider.
Painted in blue, yellow and white stripes, the ceiling is not only eye-catching but also creates happy interest for the baby to look at. The bold mix of patterns works together since there are three dominant hues: peacock blue, bright yellow and black. Pop art adds vivid colors and an entirely vintage feel to the room.
In the Pink
Oh, the wonders of a daybed. Whether you need a grow-with-me space, a room that can double as a guest quarters or a place to lay your head when baby is having a restless night, a spare bed is the essential you didn't know you needed. This pretty-in-pink bedroom pairs with calming gray and just-a-touch-of-glam gold for a delightfully feminine nursery.
Out of Africa
Send your little one out into the wild without having to leave the comfort and safety of his abode. This nursery with blue sky-ceiling combines sleeping quarters and the play space, complete with play tent, child-size table and chairs and full-size sofa for the grown-ups. Faux fur accessories, African-inspired stuffed animals and even lush foliage brings the safari feel to life.
This completely white nursery gets its tiny bursts of color from the toys, making it a blank slate that you can easily redecorate on a whim. The simplicity creates a calm respite from the chaos of everyday kidness. An oval crib is a major space saver if your kid's room is on the tiny side.
Interesting ceilings are fast becoming a favorite in nurseries since babies spend so much time looking up. This ceiling takes it to the next level with its intricate damask design. Below the molding, the room takes a decidedly different tone with simple stripes and streamlined furniture. Bright orange accents enrich the blue-on-blue color palette.
Made for Adventures
Get your little one ready for the world beyond with a nursery fit for an explorer. Birch tree wallpaper complements the gray-and-white crib and sets a forest backdrop to the gallery of places to see. Kelly green, blue and yellow flourishes yield a complete punch of color to the space.
