There’s something so cuddly and cute about a baby panda and this beloved animal is the inspiration for today’s cribspiration! A panda themed baby nursery is suitable for a boy or girl. Using a black and white color palette with pops of rich red, you can design a modern space where your little one can sleep, play, and grow!  Panda robe for baby by Baby Aspen

Adorable Decor

The vinyl heart decals in this precious nursery (3) inspired the foundation for this cribspiration. The heart-spotted walls are a lovely alternative to traditional polka-dots that have become so popular. A whimsical panda print with red accents (5) is another adorable addition to the walls in this black and white nursery. This smiling panda in glasses is printed on a page from a book! Hang this art over your rocking chair and you’re sure to smile whenever you sit down to read with your little one.

 Modern Lighting

We chose a pendant lamp  (4) to shed some light on this space.  They are available in a few sizes so you can hang one or a few to suit your space. This modern light fixture is affordable, too!

Pattern Play

Patterns add a playful feel to a black and white nursery. You can start by breaking up crisp white walls with these charming curtains (1). The simple pattern is sophisticated enough to grow with your child, too. Next, play with patterns in the crib bedding. A preppy pin dot crib sheet (6) is subtle enough not to clash with the curtains.

A Comfy Reading Corner

You’re sure to spend a lot of time in this special space, so a cozy reading nook is crucial! Choose a glider (11) that is as comfortable as it is chic so you can enjoy night after night of story-time with your baby. We love this precious panda chair (7), too! As your baby shifts into the toddler stage, this will be the perfect spot for them to sit and read or play.

Soft Surroundings

Poufs are trending in home decor and this fuzzy pouf (8) is a great fit for this space. Use it as extra seating low to the ground or as a foot rest for your glider. With so many pops of patterns in the nursery, a solid pouf and shaggy rug (9) are neutral accents you can use to soften up the overall look and create a soft space for baby to play.

Panda Themed Baby Gear

Finally, don’t forget to add a plush panda pal (2) for baby!  You can even get a panda robe so baby can bundle up after a bath and fit right into his or her new habitat (10).

A lampshade is a great way to add a pop of color to the room. Create a cozy reading nook with a side table and lamp you can easily reach from a rocking chair. You’ll be using this spot for daily story time and snuggles before bed.

6. Ready, Set, Play!

A big, soft rug makes a perfect playscape for baby. Consider a monochromatic rug for a room with lots of color, but you can still pick a bright color and textured pattern to create a whimsical feel. For a perfect color pairing, we recommend purchasing the bedding and rug from the same collection.
