Navy Blue and Pink Nursery Ideas
One of my friends asked me to help with navy blue and pink nursery ideas so that she could get more use out of the white and navy blue baby bedding set that she had bought for her son. Her baby boy was just barely out of the crib when she learned that she was expecting a baby girl and the set still looked nice. It just made sense to see if there was a way that she could make it more "girly" and suitable for a baby girl nursery room and I am happy to help.
The collection is called Egg Chicks Crib by Susan Lazar and as I told this mom; it would work for a boy, girl or a gender neutral nursery if we could just find a way to offset the masculine tone set by the navy blue and white color scheme.
I toyed with the idea of adding a lime green fitted crib sheet and decorations but the nursery inspiration board was still shouting baby boy nursery
which was exactly we were trying to avoid.
To add to my decorating dilemma, mom wanted to keep the window valance and the comfortable armchair if at all possible. The navy blue and white stripes of the upholstery and drapery fabric looked super with the modern bird print of the crib set but to me, the style was all boy.
What to Do?
In home decor, whenever the object is saving money, the answer often lies in buying second hand or using stuff you already have and adding accent pieces to give said "stuff" a whole new look. And that is exactly I did to turn this masculine room into a cute, navy and pink
baby girl nursery.

The best thing is that the navy blue and pink nursery ideas
gave this room a completely new look for less than $100 and Mom LOVED them! Do I have the best visitors on the planet or what? Here's What I Did1.
I added a throw pillow that had some pink in the chair. For what it's worth, the pillow that you see in the photo came from my imagination but it's a pretty cool design, huh? 2.
I changed the color of the baby blue crib bumper ties to pink. The bows aren't that well done in the pics but you get the idea.3.
I created hot pink baby chick decals for the nursery wall in graduated sizes using the exact shape of the baby chicks on the crib set. Mom can have them custom made in any color she wants for a few dollars. 4.
I recommended that the baby blue crib sheet be replaced with one in pink. Why Hot Pink?
I used hot pink as my accent color because I felt that it was needed to offset the contrasts of the dark blue and white patterns but pastel pink could be cute.
