3 Chic and Sensible Ways to Decorate Your Baby’s Nursery

Designing your baby’s nursery can be daunting, but it’s also exciting — you get to deck out their space in a miniature version of your own style. But as much fun as it would be to fill the room with everything on your dream celeb-inspired nursery, you still have to consider how to keep the space functional and yet still adorable. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to mix and match chic and sensible items to create a perfectly darling nursery. Whether you’re picturing soft pastels or gender-neutral patterns, scroll on to see how we’d style the nursery for the boho-chic babe, the minimalist and the preppy kiddo.


Boho-Nursery

The only thing as cute as your little bundle of joy is this softly pastel, boho chic-inspired nursery. Get your kiddo ready for the great outdoors with all the necessary comforts of glamping, including a teepee and party mice. Lidded baskets come in handy for storing extra linens, diapers and other necessities, and a rocking chair outfitted with cozy blankets and a quirky cactus pillow creates a cozy napping nook.

A clean and uncluttered feel provides the perfect inspiration for a gender-neutral nursery. If you’re saying buh-bye to pastel pinks and blues, a simple color palette and repeated tribal motif make for a unique and stylish nursery for one lucky baby. You’ll love the bright orange accents balanced by a mix of black and white patterns. Design-forward artwork and a thoughtful mix of textures ensure the space is cozy and inviting.

Drop the pastel pink and go all out with bold patterns and bright colors. Baby will thank you for all the eye candy, and you’ll love the dash of edginess the modern patterns bring to the space. After all, mama’s gotta have something fun to look at during those 3am feedings.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
