Pale blue is perfect for a baby boy - but wouldn't look out of place for a little girl, either!
Use a fresh, colorful blue, to bring some life into the room (too pale a blue may make the nursery feel cold)!
A simple and practical look for baby. Plain walls and warm wood tones give any room a calm look that can be adapted for baby.
Pale green is suitable for either sex - and looks very pretty matched with yellow and orange accents.
Voile curtains are pretty, but black out blinds or curtains will let baby get a better night's sleep.
A soft green base and white painted furniture makes a suitable basic color scheme for decorating nursery ideas. Mix with soft pink tones for a girl, or use blue or yellow for a boy.
A nice, calm, relaxing color scheme, that could easily be adapted to a guest room, or added to and changed as baby gets older.
This particular shade of green is nice for a period property, or more historic or traditional look.
A pretty pink scheme, ideal for baby girls. Again, this scheme keeps the look quite muted and adult, so could easily be adapted to a guest room.
Nice use of a focal wall to add color and interest, while the rest of the room is kept neutral. You could wait until baby is born before deciding whether to decorate this wall for a boy or girl.
White furniture and accents keep it all feeling light, spacious and airy - a nice space for Mum to relax in!
A lovely look for a tiny baby, with a crib or bassinet. A gorgeous, simple and nostalgic look, with a pretty bassinet, and historic style sampler on the wall.
Keeping walls and floor simple draws attention to the crib and wall picture/sampler as the foal points.
This would also make a great idea for a corner for baby, in Mum's room - a simple crib like this doesn't take up much space in the first few weeks of life.
Blue's not just for boys! This blue is a great look for baby Nadia - touches of pink really do 'pretty' it up!
A nice baby room with some great decorating nursery ideas for storage - a well designed changing mat fits nicely over the cot, and there are lots of convenient open shelves close at hand.
Keeping practicality as well as style in mind is important in a small room, as well as for baby's safety, so he/she is not left unattended while you cross the room for supplies.
Wall stencils or stickers are a great way of getting some personality and fun into your baby room.
A simple rainbow motif can brighten up even the simplest color scheme, and is equally suitable for both boys and girls. It's not too babyish, and will be attractive, as well as educational as baby grows into a toddler and child.
Lots of storage, space for toys and playing here, too!
This shows just how simply you can transform a neutral room into a clean and cosy nursery.
A jungle frieze gives inspiration. Using a cot quilt as a wall hanging adds more interest to the room.
I love Oliver's room!
The soft greens and blues give a warm, friendly feel in the room.
And it won't be too babyish, as Oliver grows up, either.
The unusual, soft lighting, by the cot, is a great idea!
Dark wood nursery furniture looks very elegant here - and combines wonderfully with soft creams and tans.
Great, with a fun giraffe theme running through.
Suitable for boys or girls, and for kids as well as babies.
