Modern Nursery Decorating Ideas & Tips to Inspire you from Here Comes Baby

nursery decoration ideas for a modern nurseryLooking for nursery decoration ideas to inspire you to decorate or revamp your baby’s or child’s nursery? We found these gorgeous inspirational nurseries photos from Amélie at Petit Home and they are so so chic. Amélie advises to “Add a few cushions, a colourful quilt, a fairytale lamp or a poetic wall-sticker to give a fresh look to a room!”

Putting together your baby’s nursery can be one of the most fun parts of your pregnancy. You get to choose the colours, design the layout and don’t forget the best part which is shopping for all the lovely baby things. Here are some suggestions to help develop your nursery decorating ideas.

When putting together your nursery decorating ideas first plan what key element you will need in the room:

  • When choosing a cot bed try to choose one that converts to a toddler bed, which gives a longer life to your crib and saves you money.
  • Are you going to have a changing table or a large chest of drawers that doubles as a changing table?
  • Do you want a rocking chair or cosy chair for late night feeds or comforting?
  • What kind of lighting do you envisage, think about full lighting from the ceiling to ambiance lighting a night light can provide.
  • What kind of flooring do you like – carpet, wooden/laminate/Karndean? Will you have rugs?
  • Curtains with fun fabric or neutral blinds?
  • What style or theme do you want? A theme can be as subdued or as busy as you want it.
  • Look for accessories that complements your theme.

For the nursery decorating ideas photo above:

Key elements:

  • Bird theme: using wall stickers (remember to place these higher than little hands otherwise they become fun peeling past time for your little one!) and a bird mobile.
  • Colours are differing shades of grey which can look purple in different lights.
  • Changing table doubles as a storage cupboard.
  • Dual function cot bed.
  • Floor seating for relaxing on the floor and for reading time.
  • Magnetic board to display changing art postcards, photos and fun keepsakes.
  • Matching storage bags and changing bag so when not in use they can still be chic in the nursery.
  • Laminate flooring for easy cleaning.
