10 colourful nurseries for your baby

I have found myself in the middle of a giant baby boom this year: three babies from our immediate family, five of our friends and even the cat had six kittens two weeks ago!

With babies come the very important task┬áof creating a nursery. I have found 10 colourful nurseries that are so adorable, they will make you want to have a baby if you don’t have one the way!

#1 Neon nursery

Patterned wallpaper and metallic polka dots are not elements that you would usually put with a nursery but just look how much fun it can be. chic-deco strawberryswingandthings


#2 Have fun

I think nurseries are spaces that adults get to decorate as if to channel the inner child. The tree-shaped bookshelf and bold lime stripe must have been dreamt up by a very creative adult! I love these animal cards on the right – they are a great alternative to bunting. apartmenttherapy┬áetsy


#3 Cute coral

These coral shades against a neutral background create a quiet and feminine space. I really like the fact that nurseries have become more sophisticated with the use of ‘grown up’ accessories like the antlers and signage on the right. woonblog┬áetsy


#4 Sunny side up

Create a focal wall behind the crib like this gorgeous mountain and sun wall. The yellow is picked up again in the geometric carpet and gives the room a happy feel. And how cute is this baby sheep blanket on the right? thebooandtheboy ravelry


#5 Magic animals

These framed animal prints seem to be a big trend in nurseries at the moment. The acid yellow rocking chair creates a fun pop of colour in the otherwise neutral room, echoed by the light fitting. designinvogue┬áluna—belle


#6 Vintage chic

This wallpaper circle with floating shelf is very fresh and original and creates a beautiful focal point on the wall. Combined with a few personal vintage items, it creates a nostalgic mood in this very sweet girl’s room. zirimola┬áflickr


#7 Retro revolution

Play with retro wallpaper in soft tones of blue and pink to create a subtle focal wall in your nursery. The changing station on the right is sleek and the shape reminds me of ‘The Jetsons’! Apart from being a space saver in a small room, it’s also lots of fun and ├╝ber cool. Instagram┬áFrenchyfancy


#8 Pretty ballerina

This pastel colour scheme is gorgeous in this little girl’s nursery. The lines are clean and the two-tone wall in grey is right on trend. I would love a floor like that! thebooandtheboy┬áwelke


#9 Magnificent monotone

This neutral grey wall colour is very generic so will grow with your child which makes it an excellent choice for a nursery. The crisp white furniture and black and white printed blanket add a lovely graphic element to the room. On the right is a mobile of knitted floating bunnies – love it! mrfinny┬áetsy


#10 Animated 

What’s a nursery without some form of character or cuddly teddy? Just another room! Add some fun with scatters in different shapes or a collection of items like the sleeping beauties on the right. ministyleblog┬ámommodesign
