Every woman who has ever had a child or is currently pregnant knows there’s something magical about decorating a nursery. Particularly if you’re having a baby girl. There is just so much magic and grace in the air when you’re anticipating the arrival of a new member of your family. Thus, why preparing your nursery is so important, however, if you’re a first-time mom then you know your mind is full of ideas that can’t seem to come together perfectly. If that is the case, we are here to help! The following nursery decorating ideas are just as whimsical and enchanting as your baby girl will be.
Keep it Minimal
Okay, okay, so having minimal décor might not be your first thought, however, it could very much be exactly what the room need. This is particularly true if you have a small space. When it comes to a minimal nursery, you want to have everything you need right on hand, including a crib, changing table, diaper pail, rocker, etc. The idea is to have it all on hand where you do not have to go searching for any item. Furthermore, to create that whimsical feel you want to have an accent piece, for your accent piece we recommend a soft lamp or an engaging wallpaper. Either or will instantly give your room a new approach.
Blush & Florals
There is nothing that screams “baby girl” quite like having the shade of blush be the dominant hue and florals be the accent pattern. Blush is one of the most beautiful soft, pink hues you can come across, it easy on the eye yet makes a bold contrast. Furthermore, when it is paired with a floral accent it just comes to life. Whether you decide to bring in a bold, floral accent wallpaper or you would rather have floral bits decorating the rest of the room you want to ensure your floral and the blush bits are entwined as much as possible.
So, gray might not be the first color that comes to mind when you first think “baby girl” nursery but hear us out. The shade might not be the epitome of feminine, but it’s the perfect base neutral. What this means is you can work around this shade like no other. It’s light enough to work with pastels yet rich enough that it gives you contrast. Furthermore, this shade is perfect for those that want to keep the room the same hue until further notice.
Bring on the Colors
Having a colorful nursery is just as stimulating as having patterns and prints. Bringing your baby into a colorful space can truly cheer up their mood. It’s been scientifically proven that bold, happy colors mentally help anyone feel happier, it’s a game-changer in a way. The key is to bring in colors that make sense to the rest of your décor. You want to have a colorful display that freshens the room not takes away from it. Use vivid hues in the center of the room to ensure your space feels chic and put together no matter the size or appeal.
Is there anything cuter than animal print in a nursery? We think not! Animal nursery’s just do something special to a room. With that being said, consider bringing in an animal-inspired wallpaper and pair it with shades of green and pink. The contrast between the two will instantly give the room a feminine flair with the perfect hint of freshness. Consider adding a plant or two for an additional dose of nature.
Rainbow of Neutrals
One of the biggest trends that have been taking over for about 2-3 years now is the neutral approach. While many are going for a neutral home and keeping the nursery fresh, this year it’s all about bringing a neutral touch to the nursery. Instead of working with a few neutral touches here and there, we love the idea of taking your nursery to the next level with an entirely neutral room that exposes the beauty of having a rainbow of neutrals. It’s all about taking the room to a chic level that is less infantile but with a trendy aesthetic.

Not only is it chic but if you decide to have another child a year or two later you can place them in the same room without having to redecorate.
