To start with, set up your own nursery board and start pinning away. After you have chosen about 10-15 images you will start to see the type of style develop of what you really like. A girl’s room ranges in colours from neutrals, to pops of colours to the really rich and full of character styles. Get excited, the planning is under way!!

Look at your financials.
Building a budget for a baby is an eye opening experience! It’s important to do your research and choose the items you are willing to spend on and those that you may have to secretly purchase from 😉
Identify your key pieces.
Key pieces are what define the room’s style and also play a crucial part in that all important budget! Here are a few pieces we think are the most important for a nursery.
The cot for a baby girl’s nursery is the place to start when planning your nursery. There are loads of different styles on the market from wooden, to metal and convertible sets. You can read in more detail our ultimate baby cot buying guide over here.
One of the most undervalued but oh-so-important items in a nursery in the change table, which does all the heavy lifting. Storage and height are things to look for as protecting your back when changing your baby is one of the most important things you can do.
The feedings chair is definitely a statement piece, but also the piece that you will actually use the most because its where those late night feeds, cuddles or book readings take place. Choose wisely.
Soft furnishings for the finishing touches!
Styling your baby girls nursery is where it all comes together. Think soft furnishings that add character to the room. We have outlined a few ideas below for bedding and decor like soft rugs, wall art, mobiles and play gyms.
Art for your wall
Wall art for nurseries is an inexpensive way to make a huge impact on your room. It’s definitely an easy DIY task that anyone can do, and at the end of it you feel really proud of yourself!! From basic stickers like stars, moons and flowers to full wall decals, the options are endless.
The additional accessories and nursery decorations for a girls nursery are key to bringing it all together. Once you’ve set the theme with the key components and colour palette, start to the focus on things that will bring character to the room.

Colour code the books in the room! Such a simple idea and one that is often overlooked. It clean things up a bit and gives the room a nice order in which to accessorise.
As we said at the start, we secretly love styling a girls room as the options are endless and there is so much more on the market to choose from. At the end of the day you will be spending a lot of time in this room so all the hard work that goes into setting it up will be well rewarded on the other side.
