4. Posh Tot Sanctuary

A nursery filled with light serves double duty as a playroom. Black out curtains are both chic and functional for blocking out rays during an afternoon nap.

5. Pastel Perfection

You can keep the paint color light and add a bold pop of pattern with bright curtains. We’re crazy about this set of “Life Lessons” artwork for baby, too!

6. Moody Blue

Crisp white paired with deep navy blue creates a clean modern space for baby. Whale decals on this nursery wall is the cutest nautical touch!

7. Polka Dot Decals

Are you seeing spots in your nursery vision? Vinyl decals are a great alternative to wallpaper, and polka dots are totally trendy. A gallery wall over the crib is a great way to incorporate special photos and messages.

8. New Neutral

Gray decor is the perfect start for a gender neutral nursery! Clean lines and patterns create a modern feel, and a mustache throw pillow is a cheeky accent to add after the arrival of a little man.

9. True Baby Blue

Take this traditional powder blue nursery color and add a grid on the main wall. This simple treatment changes the feel of the whole space. Fun fact: this is the nursery that inspired Project Nursery!

10. Go Vertical

High ceilings lend themselves to vertical stripes that draw your attention to a unique light fixture like a vintage chandelier. Don’t forget the floor! Frame the space with a bold rug, perfect for play time. We love this look for a boy or girl!

Using decals (2) to decorate lends versatility to your decor as baby grows and grows. These blue triangles can be oriented in a number of ways to symbolize trees, mountains, arrowheads, or just a geometric pattern. Next, hang some inspirational art (3) or an adorable baby fox (5) for your little adventurer to enjoy!

Add Modern Woodland Nursery Furniture

Natural wooden furniture has a warmth to it and brings the outdoor feel to this nursery inspiration. Don’t be afraid to mix shades of wood between the crib (4) and dresser (9) for this space! A sleek leather rocker (10) with wood accents is the perfect modern piece to use in a reading nook.

Choose Rustic Baby Decor with Texture

Fill in floor space with a plush diamond rug (7)! The pattern brings in a bit of color and the texture is perfect for tummy time. Add some soft accessories, like a faux log pillow (8) and a fox plush lovie (6) for cuddles! For functional decor, light up this fox nursery with a porcelain fox night light (11). The soft glow is perfect for late night feedings. Finally, mount branch curtain tie-backs (12) to let light in during the day.

Cribspiration: A Cupcake Nursery

Sugar and spice and everything nice comes together in this cupcake nursery inspiration from Baby Aspen. Inspired by the Baby Cakes Collection, we dreamed up a delicious nursery with a pink, aqua, and coral color palette.

Some elements are completely cupcake themed, while others are a little more subtle. No matter how much you love cupcakes, the sweet pillow assures baby that you love them more and the bookends are perfectly pink cupcake decor! The crinkle edged mirror is reminiscent us of a cupcake wrapper and a real cake stand is the perfect way to organize baby’s essentials on the changing table or to add height to a bookshelf display. The round pattern on the rug reminds us of our favorite petite treat too!
