Sleek book ledges display favorite reads, creating a simple reading nook. A dark wood crib is dressed with classic pinstriped sheets and a graphic black-and-white pillows, while the updated damask wallpaper contrasts against the simple striped area rug.
Don't think of beige as boring — think of it as a blank canvas. Look for geometric rugs in bright colors to punch up your bland carpet.

A bold coral dresser is accented by gold hardware in this girl's nursery. Gold is carried throughout the space in the mirror, polka dots on the walls and accessories, creating a glamorous atmosphere. The blue graphic area rug grounds the space and adds style underfoot.
Inexpensive and easy to make, the tissue pom is a whimsical party favorite that can also add pizazz to a child's bedroom decor. Try incorporating different size poms and tissue paper in shades of the same color for maximum impact. Photo courtesy of ProjectNursery.com

A velour beige rocking chair sits next to the window seat, where a tray with books sits an arms-length away for easy access. The white modern floor lamp with stacked rhombus shapes on the base offers soft overhead lighting for reading or nursing.
Whimsical wallpaper by Makelike sets the tone for this gender-neutral nursery and provides an interesting backdrop to the crib. A contemporary dresser provides much-needed storage, while small notes of color, like the mobile and table lamp, brighten the space.
