Design by KATE DAVIDSON Photography by VALERIE WILCOX
Drawing on pale lavenders, plush whites, and rich creams, this nursery designed by Kate Davidson works to create a sense of tranquility through its calming pastels. Your nursery should feel soft and welcoming for your little one, so infuse your space with cozy sheepskin rugs, fluffy pillows, and rounded furniture—and don’t forget to add a comfy chair to snuggle up in, perfect for late-night lullabies and early-morning interruptions.

If you’re looking to add texture and color to your space, utilize busy prints and mesmerizing patterns through accent walls, wallpaper, blankets, and area rugs. This contemporary design by Kalu Interiors features the perfect balance of playful patterns with neutral colors and grounding texture. The walls of the nursery serve as a canvas for a jungle-themed wallpaper, and the rich herringbone floor anchors the space and provides warmth against the neutral grays of the room.
Design by REBECCA HAY Photography by MIKE CHAJECKI
Sometimes less is more in a nursery where things can easily feel cramped and disorganized due to the mess of toys and diaper changing equipment. A neutral color scheme with monochromatic beiges, matte blacks, soft creams, and timeless blues can help eliminate some of that clutter. Take inspiration from Rebecca Hay’s sophisticated nursery design, where she chooses one wall to show off her navy blue accent color in a woodland print that contrasts nicely with the linear brushed-gold pendant light.
Cellular Shades by Graber
There’s a reason we like to add color to the nursery—color plays an important role in child development. Plus, when used correctly, it can add a dash of light and beauty. Use brighter colors like yellow and orange in your nursery to invoke feelings of happiness and naturally increase your baby’s well-being. Choose sheer blinds and light-colored curtains over heavier window treatments to infuse natural light into your child’s bedroom. This way, sunshine filters in to reflect the intensity of your carefully chosen hues.

Create a timeless look with your nursery by leaning into old-world charm through floral prints, classic cribs, and vintage touches in your light fixtures and furniture. Install soft carpets with waterproof wicking underfoot, delicate chandeliers with dimmer switches, and old-fashioned double door dressers to achieve a vintage appeal with all the functionality of new designs.
