Baby Love Nursery

Paint plays a big role in this lively nursery. Bold horizontal stripes on the walls in a variety of cool blues and grassy greens give the room energy and create a pondlike backdrop for an under-the-sea theme, complete with frog and fish accessories.

The canopy above the crib adds a simple but dramatic touch to this nursery. The green-and-blue polka-dot fabric was the starting point for the room's design. The silk fabric creates a serene color scheme and a formal look that matches the home's traditional decor.

Yards of dotted sheer netting were knotted and hung from the ceiling before being draped and puddled around the crib. Though it should be tied back or removed when baby begins reaching, the fabric can always be made into pretty curtains to hang at the window instead.

This soft yellow nursery creates a cheerful reminder of sunny afternoons out in the country. Quilts, soft fabrics, and a few vintage accessories accomplish this nicely.

This boy's nursery isn't typical in color or in pattern; its refreshing chocolate and blue tones and bold patterns fit seamlessly with the home's other contemporary notes. The bold swirled rug puts the whole room in motion. Its hip hues inspired the striped and polka-dot crib bedding and robin's-egg blue walls.

Inspired by leaves in the crib bedding, a painted treetop silhouette climbs the wall of this nursery, cuddling baby under a quiet canopy. Gentle colors soften the room's clean-cut modern style. In a variety of shapes and sizes, pillows and cushions rotate around the room as needed on the floor, chair, and window seat.

A cheerful apple green gingham fabric was the inspiration for this room -- a traditional but unexpected mix of pinks and greens. A coordinating fabric assortment of plaids, dots, checks, florals, and gingham mixes scales and colors to create a cozy room for baby.

This baby nursery includes pops of cheerful color as a perfect contrast for a white crib. Every detail counts in a small room like this. The room design blends old and new for a charming, one-of-a-kind look.
