Nurseries are one of the toughest rooms to design. Why? It seems like it would be piece of cake! Well, it’s hard to design a room that’s functional for a baby’s needs (and parents’ too!) while not looking too gimmicky, matchy, or cheesy, all of my pet peeves! To me, a lovely nursery is one that is one part understated, one part beautiful, and one part whimsical. There are a lot of baby decorations and products out there, but the trick is to not get too wrapped up into buying everything you see and choosing pieces that are of good quality and will last.

One of my favorite looks for a nursery is a simple black and white scheme. Simply add color in with cute accessories.

I love how this nursery prominently features a gorgeous and interesting dresser. If you invest in just one piece it sets the stage for the rest of the room.

One trend in nursery design I’ve been noticing is perfectly lined up framed pieces of artwork above the crib. I love the symmetry and order it provides.

The dark navy on the wall is handsome and moody. It’s lightened up with a crisp white crib and light artwork.

The book wall is a great idea to display gorgeous book covers. They’re also a great way for kids to reach their favorite books once they get a bit older.

This clever nursery features a gorgeous geometric designed focal wall, and it’s accented with a complementary pink dresser. The shiny accessories brighten up the room and add a dash of sophistication.

What’s your favorite nursery look like?
