We wanted to keep the colors of Amelia’s room crisp and clean, not too overwhelming, so that it could evolve with new ideas and decor over time as she grows. The walls are pure white and really brighten up her room when the sun hits the walls. Our favorite piece is her rug and the pop of color it brings to the room. We captured our inspiration from many of the different nurseries that we saw on Project Nursery. My biggest tip is to pick pieces that your baby can grow with and also make sure the room is super cozy!
We designed this nursery to go be gender neutral. The rest of our house is simplistic with clean lines and neutral colors. We wanted to carry this into our nursery.
I’ve dreamed of creating a nursery this sweet for as long as I was playing with baby dolls. I wanted my future daughter’s room to be simple and subtle – yet elegant. I think I captured it perfectly. I cannot wait to watch her dream and grow in this room.

In December we welcomed our rainbow baby boy, Jack, after many losses and a successful round of IVF. Being that this was our second and final child, and a boy (we have a girl who is 3) I wanted to create a special space just for him. I really wanted this space to be a relaxing, inviting one where the kids will eventually play together. This is why there’s lots of room in the center of the room for their toys to spread out! I think that many nurseries just have so much stuff, especially nurseries for firstborn children. The second time around, I realized we don’t really need that much!
I’ve always been a change-on-the-go kind of mom, so I change in the pack-and-play or on the floor. I never used a changing table with my daughter, so this time I omitted it from the nursery altogether.
It’s my deepest desire that this will be a room filled with love, kisses, and hugs, so a spacious room was what our children deserved!
A lot of my inspiration came from the French Farmhouse style of decorating. I love all of the textures, and different shades of ‘white’. My favorite! You can read more about the room on my blog here.
We knew early on that we wanted to incorporate this gorgeous floral wallpaper. Even though the space isn’t huge, the high ceilings and generous amount of natural light definitely make the room feel spacious enough for this oversized floral design. To add warmth, gold accents were incorporated throughout the room. We sourced items from different shops to achieve a unique and inviting space and that also added personality to the room. The acrylic crib and white dresser are slightly different styles yet compliment each other beautifully. We kept the larger pieces of furniture white and added color to the room with the smaller decor elements in pink, gold, and sage green.
I wanted Ava’s room to be simple, sweet, and light. I decided to do a neutral room with pale blush and brass accents. I find myself just sitting and trying to imagine her here!
This all white nursery was a challenge to design! My customer had requested a nursery design in all white, with a few touches of silver or gray and a very subtle celestial theme. I chose pieces that were sleek and modern but that were also functional and easily cleaned.
She already owned the white crib and didn’t want to go overboard with fabrics in the room, so we opted to do only a fitted sheet on the crib and forgo the skirt. This nursery was on the large side, so we had plenty of space for additional furniture items, like the storage bench under the window. The silver celestial chandelier adds so much to the space and also creates fun shadows on the wall at night!
I love using details that are dimensional in a nursery, so to add to our celestial theme, I used some custom cut wood moon and stars in her chosen colors. The main statement artwork is a beautiful silver moon print with a shimmering metallic finish. It mirrors the tiny little stars on the crib sheet. This room also had a large curved wall and high ceilings, which fit perfectly with the celestial theme.
Liam’s nursery was inspired by an adorable giraffe in a bowtie we found shopping on the day we found out the baby’s gender. I remember seeing the stuffed animal and thinking how adorable it would be to find a bunch of cute animals dressed up like people! Kind of quirky, right?! Well, I was in luck, and found Hello Small World, an adorable etsy shop, which had the exact woodland animals we were looking for. A friend of ours even designed an illustration to incorporate Liam’s puppy brother, Walter Wheat, to go alongside the rest of the animals.
As for the nursery’s overall look and feel, I wanted the room to be a calm and serene place. We painted three walls an ivory color, and with the help of my dad and my husband, the wall that Liam’s crib rests against is a striped wall with two different paint finishes of the same color: Benjamin Moore “Breath of Fresh Air.” I spray painted wood letters spelling “LIAM” to hang above his crib.
The rug is soft and plush and perfect for tummy time! Our nursery furniture is white and traditional, perfect to be reused for future children we hope to be fortunate to have. The light is from pottery barn and I’ve noticed it seems to be an extremely popular one!
We hope you enjoy our nursery as much as we enjoyed styling it.
When we found out we are having a girl it was a dream came true. Always wanted to be mama to a baby girl. Designing her nursery was the biggest pleasure. I fell in love with the dresser the moment I saw it. I decided to keep accents white & gold with pops for light pink to make the room more girly. The white letters monogram was my DIY project. Her nursery is my favorite room in the house, We love to spend time in here with our daughter.

zFashion blogger Ashley Fultz is expecting her first child, a baby boy, this fall and wanted to design a modern, elegant and gender-neutral cozy nursery for him!
I knew from the start that I wanted to create a bright but neutral space four our 4th baby who’s gender was a surprise! I didn’t want the room to be too masculine or feminine so we kept the color pallet very simple with mostly white and a few dashes of varying shades of gray and tan. Our surprise baby arrived a month early and is a darling little girl who we named Portlynn Blake.
A light and airy star and airplane themed big boy room.
I wanted a minimal, mid century (as much white as possible) bright nursery for our first born and achieved it with great finds on a bargain with hints of aqua/mint/seafoam and gold.
This is our nursery for our very first baby girl. The largest pieces are neutral with pops of coral added for interest. The overall mood of the nursery is light, airy, and very princess-ey.
This modern lime green nursery is particularly special to us because it was designed for a very good friend. She and her husband wanted to create a fresh and modern space for their new baby girl. They came to us knowing that they wanted the room to include fun, patterned wallpaper, modern nursery furniture and a unique alternative to the standard nursery glider.
A calm, relaxing and texturally soft neutral nursery.
I have dreamed about my baby’s nursery for many years, and when I finally fell pregnant, it all became reality. I wanted a classic and timeless baby boy nursery, with no commitment to a specific theme – the type of nursery one would find in a storybook.
This is a nursery we created for our daughter that we recently adopted. I wanted things that I love in this room: lavender, things that reminded me of France, children’s books, things that are cozy and snuggly, and most of all pictures of our baby girl, us and her birth parents who gave us the most amazing gift in the world!
Not knowing the gender of our baby, I wanted to keep the room gender netural so all of our future babies could use the room. I always loved the Beatrix Potter movies and remember growing up watching them. I’m not a fan of nurerys that “scream baby.”
