3 Nurseries So Cute You’ll Want Another Baby

Bakersfield Rocking Chair, Land of Nod

When you have a new baby, you spend a lot of time in the nursery — feeding, rocking and playing with your little bundle of joy. So the baby’s room should be just as stylish and refined as the rest of your home. A nursery need not be all pastels and cartoon characters to be cozy and kid-friendly. Two rules for designing a chic room for baby: avoid too many matching pieces and don’t buy everything from the kids’ section. A few sophisticated elements will result in a space your child can grow into — and one that you’ll enjoy spending time in (and showing off!). Here are three beautiful nursery inspiration boards, complete with info on where to buy each item.

Mid-Century Mod Nursery

Mod Nursery Inspiration Board

If you love the look of mid-century furniture in your living room and dining room, why not carry it into the baby’s room as well? You’ll cherish statement pieces like this Eames-style rocker for many years to come. Mix in some playful décor like a hip fox blanket and cheery lime-green mobile to keep your mid-century mod nursery from looking like Don Draper’s office.

Girly Glam Nursery 


A little girl’s room can be feminine without being drenched in pink. Create a pretty palette with whites, ivories and metallics — and then add in a few pale-pink accents, like a gorgeous chandelier or soft blanket. A sheepskin rug looks beautiful, and it provides a soft spot for baby to play. Mix in a few edgier industrial pieces for a look that is glam, but modern and not overly fussy.
