Pretty And Pink
One of the most memorable parts of expecting a baby girl is planning the perfect nursery for her. Her first room is where she'll have the earliest impressions of life, so it's important to choose your decor palette thoughtfully. Here are some stylish nursery ideas for the equally stylish mama-to-be.
Do you want to instill a little European flair and style in your baby girl? Choosing a light and whimsical Parisian theme may be the right choice for you. Stick with sophisticated colors, luxurious bedding and unmistakable Paris accents, such as a chandelier or images of the Eiffel Tower.
For the baby girl who will grow up around fashion, invest in some vintage Barbie posters or other feminine accents. As for bedding and colors, pick only the best quality and the most feminine — girls deserve only the best.
If you want your nursery to be a room that complements the rest of your modern decor, there is nothing wrong with that. Your baby will have a head start on her decor taste. For the basic furniture, go with pieces that have a contemporary feel and are designed with practicality in mind.
Want your baby girl to embrace nature? Search carefully for animal- and plant-inspired decor that complements your chosen paint colors. Consider black-and-white accents mixed with bold bursts of nature's most beautiful colors.
Want your baby be a world traveler? Inspire her from the very beginning. Make the centerpiece of your nursery's decor a world map. Use the colors within the map as inspiration for accent pieces and surrounding colors — the final nursery will awe you and inspire your little one.
This nursery theme is simple: memories. Surround your baby with the love of yourself and her father. Pick a bright color for two walls and leave the others white. For wall art, opt for dozens of white photo frames filled with pictures of her parents and her first footprints. For an extra effect, put a sweet quote over her crib.
Because every girl is a princess, it's never too early to teach her that. As the main decorator and a woman, this one should be intuitive. Think a pink-and-white color palette mixed with regal, romantic and feminine accents.
Start encouraging your little girl to follow her dreams from day one. Stick to sleepy and dreamy blue for the wall color while keeping with simple white accents. To add the dream effect, create or purchase a star mobile. Don't forget to paint the word "dream" over her crib.
To honor the timeless nursery rhyme, we had to include a Little Bo Peep themed nursery. This one is all about surrounding your little girl with plush and white lambs. For accent walls, paint two walls a light-yet-contrasting yellow. Keep the other two walls a clean and crisp white. The rule for this style: You can never have enough lambs.
