Not for wallflowers: flowers on the wall! A gorgeous mural or printed nursery wallpaper makes a style statement in this nursery for girls. This mama-to-be went even further by adding faux taxidermy in flower crowns and chains. Some girl nursery themes are not meant to be subtle—and we’re loving this example!

The number one rule in decorating girl nurseries today? There are no rules! It’s a great time to ditch anything you ever thought about green nurseries and consider a shade of sage (or emerald! Or mint!) for your little lady’s corner of the casa. Bonus: pink and green look amazing together, as seen in this cactus-themed nursery.

Woah. That is the audible emission that first comes out when admiring this breathtaking baby girl nursery. The pull-out couch is genius; the balance of mint and ballet pink are darling; the llama is squeeze-worthy; and the crib art is divine. But that chandelier?!

A round mirror, boxy dresser, and other basic shapes in the structural elements of the room allow for creative additions down the road. For example, when your little lady turns 2 and insists on a dress-up rack in the middle of all this, it’ll be much easier to incorporate when the bulk of the room is simple in form.

It’s the simplest touch you can add to your little girl’s nursery, but might just end up being the detail that speaks the loudest! Invest in a pink or purple felt sign and switch out the phrasing when the mood strikes. Make sure to snap a picture each time you change it; she’ll love looking back on your words of wisdom and whimsy to her in a few—or many, many—years down the line.
