Whether you just found out you’re expecting a little one or you’re halfway through your pregnancy, creating a nursery that is just as sweet as your new baby is a huge step! What are the best colors for a nursery? How can you decorate it to feel warm and welcoming, but also be functional? These questions can only be answered by you and your nursery style goals, but don’t worry; we’re here to help! To help you get a better idea of what a stylish, practical nursery can look like with the right design, décor, and elements, we put together four nursery rooms that are equally as adorable as they are useful. From nursery design and décor for boys to nursery rooms for little girls, you’ll love just how fun it is to design the nursery you and your family will cherish.
Nursery design for a girl’s room doesn’t have to be over the top or completely covered in pink. Equally as chic and trendy, this nursery design captures the subtle beauty of florals with the oversized floral wallpaper in pink. A neutral wall color accentuates the simple nuances of the wallpaper, while nursery décor like a pink baby blanket hung over the crib ties it all together beautifully. The addition of a wide dresser leaves plenty of storage for clothes and other items that will need to be readily available, and a round, patterned storage tote in the corner is perfect for laundry or other necessary goods. The fuzzy white rug is ideal for a baby who will be feeling all kinds of new things, and a round pouf completes the design by giving parents a place to sit.

Who says a boy’s nursery can’t be cute and cuddle too? In this night-time inspired nursery that’s perfect for any boy’s room, the dark-colored wall sets the moody tone. Gold stars placed on the left side of the wall that flow naturally from left to right and add a touch of glimmer and delight that might otherwise be lost in the deepness of the paint. A light wooden crib adds an appealing natural element that further strengthens the contemporary design of this nursery space. Cute animals framed in white brighten the space, and the addition of the dresser is perfect for any new parent looking for more storage.
