Trying to bring your ideal nursery to life but don’t know where to start? Get all the design inspiration you need from these inviting nurseries that vary in style but are equal in charm and feature versatile, long-lasting furniture to suit your family’s every need.
Modern & Geometric
Incorporate abstract geometric shapes in your nursery for a touch of whimsy and to soften the sleek silhouettes of mid-century modern pieces like our Otto Crib and matching Changing Table and Cubby Bookcase. Mid-century modern, though wildly popular as an interior decorating style, is difficult to define exactly because it’s a blend of contrasting concepts, but you can take plenty of inspiration from this eclectic nursery. Here, the exposed wood end table with iron legs is a fusion of manmade and natural materials. Nursery-safe plants and origami cranes bring a bit of the outdoors in. Rounded boho forms in vibrant colors like salmon and bright goldenrod counterbalance the deep walnut tones of the furniture and the starkness of the iconic flared legs. The overall result? A space that feels as warm and familiar as a vintage postcard.
Classic & Cozy
Create a space that feels like home with charming wooden accents and a warm, earth-toned color palette. When styling around commanding and stately centerpieces like our Anders Crib and DaVinci Signature 6-Drawer Dresser, use a light touch to play up the cozy factor. Don’t be afraid to create the sense of contained messiness that defines homely spaces, with organizational pieces that display accessories, toys, and miscellaneous knickknacks instead of concealing them. For a soft vs. rugged textural contrast, pair an accordion peg rack where you can hang your baby’s bibs and onesies with a blanket ladder over which you can drape plush organic fabrics like muslin and wool.
Vintage & Charming
Evoke nostalgia and romance in your nursery by mixing heirloom style pieces with wall designs like wainscoting (textured paneling on the lower third or half of your wall), which make any space feel palatial. When opting for a refined vintage look, think simple. A minimalist color scheme can easily elevate the classic look of your furniture. In this elegant twin nursery, the dramatic contrast between the cream accent wall and the ebony Jenny Lind collection pieces gives the heirloom style of the furniture a modern flair and accentuates the decorative spindles. For finishing touches, give your space a sweet, handcrafted feel with soft pastel fabrics and wicker homewares like delicately crafted baskets and macramé plant hangers.
Sweet & Floral
Floral motifs in nurseries have always been popular, but they’re surprisingly versatile. From glamorous to vintage chic to boho, you can style your blossoming nursery any which way. With a crib as regal and rich in detail as the Fiona, you can use barely-there floral wallpaper and framing pieces like the two Kalani dressers in this nursery to let the crib stand out as the centerpiece. When working with a delicate pastel palette, metallic accents like gold picture frames, antique mirrors, or ornate brass lamps add necessary dramatic flair. A floral nursery is also ripe with potential for storytelling — get imaginative and accessorize with stuffed woodland creatures or lean into a fanciful storybook theme with unicorns and fairies.
