If your little London's name was inspired by the city in England, let its landmarks take centerstage in her room. A design like this one, with a prominently featured London Bridge and Big Ben wall art, and classic British-style phone booth, could be the perfect fit for your place-named inspired little one.

If you're picturing a little Stella when conjuring your baby name, let the name's meaning guide your nursery theme. A starry forest wallpaper and moon light create a sweet setting that will grow along with your baby. Her room will be as much of a star in your home as she is.

A name that's got a color in it lends itself naturally to a room scheme. Grayson is the "son of the Gray-Haired One," but if you let your design mind wander from its direct meaning a bit, you may end up here. If you envision a calm, cool-toned nursery this is the way to go for your baby. The soothing grays will grow as your little one does and will be a great foundation for a grown-up room.

Red may not be the first color you think of when you imagine a nursery, but a baby Scarlett could warrant reconsideration. If you love the deep red color the name Scarlett evokes, her nursery is the perfect spot to design with it. The bold red crib and curtains are tempered by pink walls and a small-stripe rug. We think she'll love it.
