how to design
A Girl's Nursery
Create a beautiful space for your baby to sleep that's also comfortable, warm and welcoming to you.
Start with a color and theme, then work in a range of functional accessories.
PLAN YOUR SPACE
First things first: choose a crib, changing table and other essentials for your nursery. Because growing babies spend a lot of time on the floor, pick a plush rug so she can roll around. Then, consider decorative details like a hanging mobile or a throw for the rocker.
HAVE FUN WITH A THEME
When it comes to your nursery's theme, feel free to get creative! From butterflies to flowers to something as simple as polka dots, choices of motifs are endless. Consider the style of the rest of your home, and choose a palette that works in harmony.
DECORATE THE WALLS
Think about ways to create a display of wall art and family photos in arrangements that will be easy to add to as your baby grows. Also consider patterned wallpaper or a bright color of paint for accent wall – it will help add some energy and interest.
THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE
Your baby will be up and moving around before you know it, so choose furniture and accessories that will effortlessly transition from infant to toddler – and eventually, to child. Some smaller things – like pillows, lamps and bedding – can be easily swapped out when your child's needs and interests change.
