Bringing a little princess into the world? A modern baby girl nursery needs design, charm, and if you’re going girly, a double dose of pink. Contemporary princess nurseries are big on the glam without veering into cheesy territory. Crystal chandeliers, gold-tone details, and lush bedding are all good ideas… as are outside-the-box decor elements that will set your little girl’s space apart. Here’s some of our favorite princess baby room inspiration.

This elegant cornice with pink sheers by Monique Lhuillier for PBK is every bit the princessy dream come true. While shown here in a big-girl room, it would look divine hanging behind a crib as well (out of Baby's reach, of course), or on any special wall in the nursery.

It truly does not get more elegant than this unique tufted crib for baby girl (or boy, if you’re going the prince route!)... and with swans thrown in for good measure, you’re looking at baby room furniture that’s totally royalty-ready for your sweet one’s arrival.
