I realize that I am "different" but my file of modern baby girl nursery decorating ideas does not include the first picture of frilly, pink baby bedding. Unfortunately my mom believes that there are only two acceptable color schemes for baby rooms, pink and white for girls and baby blue for boys.

There is a lot of drama happening in the family because I don't want an old fashioned nursery.

I simply refuse to decorate the space so that it looks like a picture that came out of a 1960 Home and Garden magazine!

My mother, sister and I went out to the stores to register yesterday and they had a hissy because I didn't have much pink stuff on my baby registry.

Modern Baby Girl Nursery Decorating Ideas

Then last night my husband and I were having a discussion and he indicated that he agreed (carefully and cautiously) with my mom and sister and would like for the baby's room to have at least some pink in the color scheme and that he felt my need to be rebellious was behind my decorative decisions. He said he feels that I am making the choices that I am because I want to go against tradition rather than because I like modern baby bedding and better than old fashioned ones.

After sleeping on it, I have decided to give in and let him have his way with a pink baby nursery design because up until this point I've made most of the major decisions from choosing the baby's name which is much more important to me than choosing the nursery theme for our baby girl's nursery.

Can you please give me some examples that are not so pink that I want to throw up?

From the webmaster:

You are correct in saying that baby girl's rooms do not have to be pink to be feminine but that is the traditional color and old habits are hard to break.

You didn't upload any baby girl nursery pictures or crib sets that you were considering so I did a little shopping for you and found the one in the picture above.

The pink and brown baby bedding set is modern, tailored and feminine without the ruffles and lace that you indicate that you would like to avoid. I hope this helps and that you will let Unique Baby Gear Ideas know what you decide.

Very Girl-y

This crib set goes perfectly with the vision I have for my daughter's first room and I am so very thankful that I found your website because the original set that I had in mind has been discontinued.

I Vote for Purple!

I prefer purple or lavender over both pink and blue but after having had two baby boys first and decorating in colors for a boy (have you noticed nobody ever fusses and wants to use pink for a boy?) I believe that decorating a baby girl's nursery in pink would be positively delightful!

It's certainly not worth making everybody in the family upset over (especially since you were big enough to admit that you had had your way on picking everything else). I believe that you were right to compromise but since the question was asked whether there was anything wrong with a blue nursery for a baby girl my opinion is the same as yours. There's nothing at all wrong with using baby blue in a modern baby girl's room although I would choose a feminine nursery theme and not trains, boats or planes.
