Baby room décor used to be so predictable. Pink teddy bears for girls and blue sailboats for boys. These rooms often lacked a classic, elegant aesthetic that could be easily adapted as the child got older. Now muted tones, layered textures and furniture pieces that don’t look mass-produced can help you create a truly magical space for your little one to enjoy for years to come.
Choose soft, harmonious tones
You can’t go wrong with a base palette of light grey or classic white. This can then be built on with soft furnishings in tones of blush pink, mint, dove greys or the palest of blues. Understated tones create an idyllic and soothing space for baby to sleep but are easily adaptable as the child gets older. Plain walls can be brought to life with removable decals – seemingly simple triangles or dots add surprising depth and interest to a room.
Add texture to baby room décor
Nothing transforms the elegant feel of a room better than layered textures throughout. Rattan furniture adds a vintage vibe and this gorgeous stool doubles as a small storage compartment. Baby blankets and quilts come in a variety of fabrics and textural patterns which add a touch of luxurious style. The graphic stitching transforms this pale mint Cam Cam Baby Quilt into something special and can also be used as a playmat.
Add whimsy and charm with wall prints
When choosing artwork for your baby room decor, stay away from super-cutesy images your child will quickly outgrow. Instead, choose unique pieces that can be admired for years to come. Prints that blend harmoniously with your chosen colour scheme ensure a sense of flow. Fun, monochrome prints for your little baby boy make a striking choice. These watercolour prints by Sailah Lane evoke a sense of wonder that’s sure to be a conversation piece in any baby nursery.
Finishing touches for elegant baby room decor
Sometimes one well-chosen piece can tie a whole room together. Consider a unique nightlight to create sweet dreams. Or take the vintage sweetness to the next level with this stunning bow chair. Hanging things from the roof also adds visual appeal – choose a musical mobile to help your bub drift off to sleep or bring a touch of princess elegance to your little girl’s baby room décor with a magical canopy.
