Now that you’re almost ready to have your baby and your little girl is on her way, it’s time to start to prepare nursery decor for girls. Using a variety of colors or themes can make the nursery a warm and inviting place where you and your little one will love to sleep and play.
Shades of Pink – Most people think of pink being the “girl’s color” for a nursery, and this is usually a shade of pastel pink that is delicate and understated. While this can add a whimsical and dreamy element to your baby girl’s nursery, add different hues of pink to make the area especially eye-catching. For instance, place images of items like ballet slippers or tulips on the wall in hues that are a few shades darker than pastel pink, or purchase baby blankets and bedding in flamingo pink for a pop of color. The rug that you place under the rocking chair in the nursery or the curtains can be in a bold magenta, or shades of pink that have peach undertones.

Ladybugs – Nursery decor for girls in a ladybug theme will provide the room with a bright red color that will lift your little one’s mood. Use shades of red and black, of course, to display the images of ladybugs all around the room; there are also types of ladybugs that are orange and black, and you can use this in the decorating theme as well. A baby blanket with a large image of a ladybug can be the central focus of the crib, and you can even print out vivid pictures of the insects using free photos online and frame them to adorn the walls. Install red, orange or black curtains and blinds in the room, and paint wooden furniture such as the crib or rocking chair black, so that the shades of red will be even more noticeable.
Antique Theme – You want to pass on some sentimental family traditions and customs to your daughter, and placing certain items in her nursery is a great way to start. For an antique-themed nursery, enlarge photos of some of the women in your family and place them in frames that reflect the era the pictures were taken in. Feature a few pictures of the parents and the baby, or the mother during the pregnancy, taken with an antique-style lens, on the dresser or on the wall as the main portraits of the nursery. Now is also a great time to use furniture that has been passed down in the family, such as the crib you slept in as a baby or chest of drawers or rocking chair that your great-grandmother used. Refinish the furniture pieces (if your family doesn’t mind), or use them in their original states while you add pillows, cushions and blankets to the furniture.
How you choose nursery decor for girls should include touches of your favorite themes and colors while also embracing the love you have for your new arrival. Use a theme that can grow with your baby girl as she transitions into a toddler and small child.
