The use of mirrors such as the one that displays Sam's initial "S" in this example are excellent nursery decorating ideas when working with a small space.

The pink and green stripes are topped by a chair rail with a border of dancing sheep. The pattern is an original design created by the baby's mother.

A blend of stripes with modern geometric prints is very attractive.

The touch of "zig zag" stripes is small but effective.

A nursery for a baby boy may feature wall stripes that have been painted in various shades of chocolate brown, tan and cornflower blue. The decorator of the room in this photo said that her goal was to achieve a nursery that was contemporary with a modern feel. A room in blue and brown has always been one of my favorite color schemes. She had dreamed of the day when she could put her ideas to work in her baby boy's nursery.

Vertical wall stripes in a pink and brown color scheme are lovely in a baby girl's nursery room.

Celestial bedroom themes have always intriqued me, but most are in a pale shade of baby blue with bright yellow stars which wouldn't work with my nursery decorating ideas in blue and brown.

When I found the moon and stars nursery bedding set online with the patchwork crib quilt in what I considered to be the very best baby boy color scheme in the world, I was delighted! This baby bedding set would fit with my ideas of what was the perfect nursery decor for a boy.

DAY #1
As soon as the crib set came in the mail, I began to brainstorm colors for painting stripes on the nursery walls and by the end of the day, the perimeter of the nursery was taped and I had painted all of the cornflower blue wall stripes.

DAY #2
Next came the stripes in coffee tan and getting out of the way for the installation of our brand new nursery floorcovering. The latex paint was dry to the touch, I warned them not to scratch my fresh paint.

DAY #3
Finally I got to brush the rich, chocolate brown stripes on the nursery walls. This dark accent color is what really made me know that my nursery decorating ideas were going to fall into place just fine.


At week's end, to put the finishing touches on our nursery's decor, we went to the discount home store to get some decorative wooden molding for the chair rail. I worried that the bold colors and the espresso stained baby furniture might make the bedroom seem dark or small, then I thought of one of the nursery decorating ideas my friend had used to make her nursery seem larger; a wall mirror! I bought a large mirror shaped like a star to hang over the baby's dresser. I love how much bigger and brighter it made the room look!

I hope that you like my baby nursery pictures and hope that you will send yours into to Unique Baby Gear Ideas so that we can see your nursery decorating ideas and how you painted your baby's room!
