Baby on the Way? Get Inspired by These Sophisticated Nurseries
Design-obsessed parents-to-be, this one’s for you. If your family is about to grow, you’re probably thinking about nursery design. The ideal nursery is a space that feels full of imagination and possibility, that your little one might be able to grow into over the years, and that you and your partner won’t mind spending a lot of time in. In our books, that means you should ditch quite a few of the traditional tropes of baby décor (think: overflowing toy bins, bows, and duckies!). To inspire a design that you and your baby will adore, we’ve gathered 17 sophisticated examples of nurseries that get it right. Scroll on to see them all!
