A few days ago I put together a post featuring 3 nursery decorating ideas for boys. I also mentioned the biological instinct called nesting that causes us to start preparing for the little one’s arrival. Getting the new baby’s nursery decorated is certainly one of those nesting instincts. Today, I am offering a complementary post to cover baby girls. So, if you are expecting a precious little girl I hope you can use these ideas.
I know. It sounds a bit out there but believe it or not it’s one of the most popular nursery decorating ideas for girls. At first mention you would think that would be more of a boy’s nursery theme, but the bug theme generally focuses on “girly bugs”. Decorating ideas for this nursery theme would include ladybugs, dragonflies, bumblebees and butterflies. There are many different bedding sets sold in this theme so finding a cute set should be quite easy to do. A wonderful finishing touch for this theme would be to get a nice matching border, or to do bug and flower stencils around the room.
Patchwork or Plaid Print Theme
Many people choose to go very traditional when it comes to decorating their baby girl’s nursery. That is why patchwork or plaid prints are recommended for people looking for traditional nursery decorating ideas for girls. These prints are beautiful, classic and feminine. Bedding and coordinates for decorating a nursery can be found at almost every store that sells baby goods. What great about this theme is that it can transition nicely to a toddler, and even older child’s room.
Cartoon Character Theme
Many people looking for nursery decorating ideas for girls have a particular cartoon character in mind. There are many fabulous cartoon character themes that work well for a baby girl’s nursery. One that stands out would be a Beatrix Potter theme. You could do a general theme with all of the characters from her books, or you could stick with a Peter Rabbit theme. Many people also love the Hello Kitty theme for baby girls because it is bright and cheery. There are a few more cartoon character themes for decorating a baby girl’s nursery that are great including Winnie the Pooh, Precious Moments, and Sesame Street.
Naturally, there are many other nursery decorating ideas for girls that you can choose for your little girl. It is important to consider your own personal preferences and whether or not you want the theme to carry your daughter past infancy. Another source of ideas is the diaper cakes for girls page on our website. Here, you can find some inspiration for other themes that may work for you.
