10 Adorable Design Ideas for Creating the Perfect Nursery

While having a newborn can be more than a little chaotic, there are ways to combat the stress, starting with your nursery. Like a cup of your favourite tea, a well-appointed nursery can bring calm and serenity – both to mom and baby alike. By creating a space you love, you will automatically calm and ground yourself each time you step foot in baby’s room, which will help you get through even the most stressful times of caring for your young child. 

Whether you’re expecting your first, or your baby-to-be already has older brothers or sisters, it’s never a bad idea to give your nursery space a little bit of inspiration. To get you started, we’ve compiled 10 of our favourite nursery designs for you here. Check them out below, and be sure to let us know which one is your favourite!

1. Sophisticated Vintage

With soft, pastel shades and mid-century and Victorian-inspired furniture and lighting, this nursery is the perfect place for mom and daughter to relax and bond, without feeling too overly feminine or cutesy.

2. Floral Fun

With a modern, elegant floral backdrop behind your baby’s crib, and subtle shades of pink, purple and grey throughout, this design is modern, tranquil and fun.

3. Wild About Wildflowers

Another design with a bold floral accent wall – this time with a more gender-neutral colour pallet – this design could easily suit a baby boy or baby girl with a few simple swaps of accent items and colours. A cream rug and chair along with natural wood furnishings and shelves help balance out the bold pattern from the wildflower wallpaper.

4. Cacti Vibes

This subtle southwest nursery is perfect for those parents looking to bring a touch of the outdoors inside. With several live (but out of reach) cacti, vintage chair and dresser, southwestern rug, and cactus-green accent wall, this nursery is the ideal setting for the little cowboy or cowgirl in your life.

 5. Natural Nursery

This design is simple and modern, with elements inspired by mother earth. With a natural wood dresser and crib serving as the stars of the show, fun accent pieces can be found around the entire room, including inside the beautiful, handmade honeycomb shelves. A crisp white crib sheet rounds out this clean look. 

6. Subtle & Soft Garden Nursery

With grey walls and mint green accents, this garden-theme nursery would look great in any style of home. With a paper floral mural adorning the main wall, and furniture that’s the perfect mix of quality design and practicality, this subtle nursery will make everyone in the family feel right at home.

7. A Touch of the Tropics

Nothing says relaxation and tranquility quite like the tropics. This nursery design plays off this idea, with two bold tree lined murals on opposite walls and bamboo furniture to complete the look. A ceiling fan paired with large sliding glass door means mom and baby will have plenty of island breeze to enjoy.

8. Surf’s Up!

Inspired by a surfing village in Southwestern France, this cozy nursey was designed with baby’s growth in mind. While completely age appropriate for a newborn, everything in the space was handpicked to grow with the child, meaning this room can remain their home for many years to come.

9. Whimsical Woodlands

This design brings cute critters to life with an animated wallpaper print of woodland creatures. Paired with whimsical furnishings and lighting, as well as plenty of stuffed animals, this nursery serves as the perfect wooded retreat for baby and parents.

10. Classy Clouds

Last but not least, this dreamy nursery is a design masterclass, with some beautiful touches throughout. From subtle cloud wallpaper, to elegant lighting, timeless furniture, and beautiful artwork, this nursery could easily suit both boy and girl, and is the perfect way to create some serenity in your home.
