For Emmie’s nursery, I wanted something feminine but not overly girly, so I designed a pink & green nursery. Baby girl nursery ideas are often drowning in pink. Designing something she could grow into was also important to me, even though we ended up moving so quickly!
Creating Baby Girl Nursery Ideas
I’ve always loved the inspiration behind nurseries, like these gender neutral nursery designs. Pinterest is full of ideas. In fact, I have an entire board dedicated to it here and you can search all of my interior design ideas here.
We were surprised with baby’s gender when I was pregnant, so I initially designed a gender neutral nursery. I love the idea of green. When we bought our home and I knew we had a baby girl, Emmie’s room was the first I designed, and I absolutely knew I wanted a pink and green nursery.
Designing the Space
I always recommend a few splurge pieces when designing a space – especially nursery decor, which will take a lot of wear and tear! If you’re designing a space in your home, you’d love the Best Valspar White Paint Colors here. When I designed this pink and green nursery, we already had Emmie’s furniture, which was neutral.
So, then I started with the wall paint color. We opted for Valspar Northern Hemisphere because it was a rich green, but not too dark. I should call out though that Emmie’s room had a skylight and two great windows, so it was a well lit room. The wainscot really balanced out the space. Without the wainscot, the dark green paint might feel overwhelming.
Once I had the paint color selected, I looked for the perfect rug. The pink rug from Pottery Barn really set the tone for the room. The rest was functional decor to complement the rug and wall color.
