I have found myself in the middle of a giant baby boom this year: three babies from our immediate family, five of our friends and even the cat had six kittens two weeks ago!
With babies come the very important task of creating a nursery. I have found 10 colourful nurseries that are so adorable, they will make you want to have a baby if you don’t have one the way!
#1 Neon nursery
#2 Have fun
I think nurseries are spaces that adults get to decorate as if to channel the inner child. The tree-shaped bookshelf and bold lime stripe must have been dreamt up by a very creative adult! I love these animal cards on the right – they are a great alternative to bunting. apartmenttherapy etsy
#3 Cute coral
These coral shades against a neutral background create a quiet and feminine space. I really like the fact that nurseries have become more sophisticated with the use of ‘grown up’ accessories like the antlers and signage on the right. woonblog etsy
#4 Sunny side up
Create a focal wall behind the crib like this gorgeous mountain and sun wall. The yellow is picked up again in the geometric carpet and gives the room a happy feel. And how cute is this baby sheep blanket on the right? thebooandtheboy ravelry
#5 Magic animals
These framed animal prints seem to be a big trend in nurseries at the moment. The acid yellow rocking chair creates a fun pop of colour in the otherwise neutral room, echoed by the light fitting. designinvogue luna—belle
#6 Vintage chic
This wallpaper circle with floating shelf is very fresh and original and creates a beautiful focal point on the wall. Combined with a few personal vintage items, it creates a nostalgic mood in this very sweet girl’s room. zirimola flickr
#7 Retro revolution
Play with retro wallpaper in soft tones of blue and pink to create a subtle focal wall in your nursery. The changing station on the right is sleek and the shape reminds me of ‘The Jetsons’! Apart from being a space saver in a small room, it’s also lots of fun and über cool. Instagram Frenchyfancy
#8 Pretty ballerina
#9 Magnificent monotone
This neutral grey wall colour is very generic so will grow with your child which makes it an excellent choice for a nursery. The crisp white furniture and black and white printed blanket add a lovely graphic element to the room. On the right is a mobile of knitted floating bunnies – love it! mrfinny etsy
What’s a nursery without some form of character or cuddly teddy? Just another room! Add some fun with scatters in different shapes or a collection of items like the sleeping beauties on the right. ministyleblog mommodesign
