Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed a depressing room into a bright and festive nursery for the homeowners' baby on the way. The French doors were removed to create a solid wall for a crib or bed placed against. The old wall paneling was removed and replaced with light blue painted drywall with white trim. Soft carpeting will be perfect for a child's room and metal crates hang on the wall and serve as storage for stuffed animals. A crystal chandelier was removed from the original dining room and installed here in the nursery.
If your crib is situated in a dark portion of your nursery, a pendant light may be a great option. For safety, hang the pendant on the far end of the crib and high enough that’s it’s out of baby’s reach. Woven, basket-like pendants made of materials like wicker or rattan are totally on-trend, and their natural color can blend with just about any color palette.
If you are willing to spend some time digging online you can uncover original and affordable gems on Etsy.com and other similar marketplace sites. Items that are custom made will not only make the room feel special but help make it unique. Photo courtesy of ProjectNursery.com
An eclectic mix of color and pattern provides plenty of stimulation in this stylish nursery. A stunning patterned ceiling with two pendant lights is the highlight, while a blue striped wall and fun pops of orange liven up the space.
Just a few inches from the glider is a stowed-away Murphy bed. Originally, its exterior was covered in a red-toned wood laminate, something too adult and too formal for a nursery. By updating it with custom vinyl wallcovering in the same palette as the room's decor, it now fits in perfectly, blending in with the other design elements.
Gorgeous Eclectic Boy's Nursery With Bold Graphic Designs
A natural wood accent wall sets a lovely textured background for the mix of wall decor in this beautiful boy's nursery. Inspirational quotes, a labradoodle and creative book page letters keep the nursery happy and colorful. Bigger pops of bright color come from the graphic patterns on the rug, crib cushions, ottoman and throw pillow and the vibrant navy blue velvet armchair.
When spending money on the design for nurseries and/or children's rooms, it's okay to splurge on pieces that have longevity. The splurge in this nursery was the leather-upholstered glider, which is durable enough to last and stylish enough to potentially work in a different room.
Floating White Shelves For Books In Contemporary Nursery
Floating white shelves next to a window covered in heavy cream-colored drapes are used to display books, while an orange chair and ottoman, oval blue mirror and black table lamp add to the room's eclectic decorating scheme.
Black and white arrow-printed wallpaper sets the tone for this eclectic, mature nursery. A turquoise, over-dyed rug brings a playful pop of color to the neutral space. Scandinavian-style furniture is both sleek and gender-neutral.

Eclectic Taupe Nursery with Orange Accents, Painted Ceiling
This nursery is full of energy from touches of orange against a neutral taupe backdrop to layered patterns and child-friendly greenery. The addition of a painted zigzag pattern to the ceiling gives the baby something stimulating to look at while lying down in the crib.
Children's rooms offer a chance to be playful, more so than in adult spaces such as lounges and living rooms. For a touch of whimsy, a table lamp made of stacked teapots with a woven seagrass shade is at home atop the side table next to Orly's rocker. The playfulness is appropriate for a nursery, and the organic shade fits perfectly with the all-natural aesthetic geared toward adult guests.
