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.
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.

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.
