The jewel tones and geometric shapes make this beautiful baby girl room super unique. The heart-shaped ottomans, princess-worthy cradle, and more are from the pricey design house, Royal Stranger. But keen eyes can score similar finds.

This simple, string-up work of art is a fresh and fun way to incorporate florals into your baby girl’s nursery. (No wallpaper paste required!) While this stunning 3D art is shown hanging over the crib, it’s best to keep it away from tiny hands.
