The excitement of welcoming a newborn home brings many new parents’ nesting instincts to life. A nursery’s design can reflect the rest of the house or have a theme that truly stands out. Do not be afraid to try something fresh in a nursery school, whether it’s simple and sophisticated or daring and colorful — or maybe you’ve been itching to design a themed area for years. This is the best time to take all your emotions on your family’s new addition and move them to decorating a beautiful nursery.
Have a peek at those eight inspirational toddlers areas — could one of those rooms work in your house?

Classic. The simple and soothing colours of this timeless nursery won’t ever go out of fashion. I really like how the designer used a geometric harlequin paint pattern to make a focal point with very little investment of time and money. The window treatments soften the space, while the small-scale chandelier provides a subtle accent.

Colorful. There’s no rule that says nurseries have to be all pastel. Like children’s rooms, a nursery may be a great place to have fun with decoration. Color can help stimulate a kid, so go everywhere! This neon-inspired palette of blue and green feels fun and fresh with no appearing chaotic.

Feminine. Love colour but don’t want to go the daring and bright path? Embrace a dusty-pink palette to make a classy but darkened area. In this one the overstuffed floral chair, dusty-pink walls and light pink ceiling balance beautifully with all the crib and dresser’s natural finishes.
Bravo Interior Design
Whimsical. The oversize wall pattern inside this nursery provides the room a lively, circus-style feel. I really like how the designer mixed a couple of other black and white patterns (such as the zebra rug below the crib) to get just a small edginess. The bold designs, chartreuse accent colour and fantastic chandelier brings the eye to the strategically placed crib in the center of this room.

Themed. Themed spaces become more difficult to pull off as children age, since their tastes and design change so fast. However, a lively themed nursery — such as this country-style farm room — works superbly. A scenic wall mural, rustic room accents and farm-style accessories (such as those fun picture frames) make the theme crystal clear.
La Casa Azul Design
Transitional. Design your nursery in a gentle, transitional style which will grow along with your baby. This sophisticated blue and white nursery blends different textures and patterns for just one cohesive look. Vivid window treatments coordinate with the seat upholstery along with also the geometric chevron rug. If you replaced the crib with a twin bed, you would easily change this nursery into a chic guest room.
SHANNON ROSATI INTERIORS
Modern. Gender-neutral nurseries don’t have to be boring. This wonderful baby’s room appears sleek and stylish with contemporary accessories and furniture. The ultracool Lucite crib creates a big statement, and its sharp lines contrast beautifully with the shag rug and yummy cellphone. Light filtering through the sheer drapes gives the room an ethereal feel.
Traditional. The back-to-basics, conventional design of this nursery will work with decoration for a baby to a teenager. The built-in-dresser, light gray walls and classic rug could function with just about any style, substance or colour palette.
