Nursery Decor & Baby Room Ideas


black and white baby nursery inspirationI’ve been working on some harvest/halloween projects for a Home Depot style challenge, which I’ll admit is a bit out of my element.  I don’t typically get super into the fall decor – not that I don’t like it, but it just usually sneaks up on me a bit and then before I know it, Christmas is here (favorite!).  Anyway, everything gets a lot more fun when the little ones are into it, so I thought it was a good excuse to deck the house with pumpkins and such – Vivi loves baby pumpkins!  This is sort of a re-visit to this board from last year – it’s one of my favorites for whatever reason.

nautical girl nursery Be sure to check out the fifth and final nursery collaboration with the Land of Nod on Honest to Nod today – “girl sailor.”  Love how this room came together!  We worked on four rooms using each one of their new cribs, and the weathered greywash keepsake crib is perfect for this space!  So clever to have extra storage below!  See the inspiration board and all the other details here! Also, be sure to check out the rest of the rooms: Baby Bear, Candy Kisses, Little Rockstar, and my favorite, Timothy’s Room!

Tonight, I’m participating in a pin party with Project Nursery and RH Baby & Child – join in here!  Above is some inspiration centered around their collection.  Most of their line has a very traditional, heirloom feel, and is perfect if you want to go for a very serene and sophisticated look.  I mixed it up a little by adding in some aqua – sources below!

Loving this neutral hued inspiration today.  I was inspired by this bedroom, which for whatever reason I am just crazy about, and while it’s most definitely feminine, I think the above would work just as splendidly for a boy. Go snatch up that poster if you like it; it’s one of a kind vintage, and it’s perfectly sized to be a statement piece, too!  To get this look for less, go for the white Jenny Lind crib, this pendant light, and this chair.
