So whether you’re just starting to plan for your little one or you’re almost ready to bring her home, read on for some helpful advice!

Our vision of a baby girl nursery – Nordic style

Our vision is based around nordic nursery ideas. A neutral nursery with a calming color scheme, an accent wall with wallpaper in an elegant design and as a focal point, and a crib in natural wood.

This design is perfect for nursery ideas as it is inspired using calm shades, neutral textures, and subtle prints. This wallpaper is a stick-on paper and is easy to install. Shop the Look.

Is stick-on wallpaper easy to install?

Stick-on wallpaper is very easy to install.

Stick-on wallpaper is a great way to add some color and personality to your baby girl nursery.

And the best part is, it’s very easy to install!

Do you need to prep walls before wallpapering?

Yes, before you can install stick-on wallpaper, you’ll need to prepare the walls.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Wash the walls with a mild soap and water solution. This will remove any dirt or debris that could prevent the wallpaper from sticking.
  • Next, use a sponge or brush to apply a layer of primer to the walls. This will help the wallpaper stick better.
  • Once the primer is dry, you’re ready to start applying the wallpaper!

Follow the instructions below to install your new wallpaper.

How to install your stick-on wallpaper

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A roll of stick-on wallpaper
  • A measuring tape
  • A level
  • A pen or pencil
  • A sharp knife
  • A straight edge

First, measure the wall you want to cover and calculate how many rolls of wallpaper you’ll need.

Next, use the level to draw a horizontal line across the wall. This will be your starting point.

Applying the wallpaper

Now it’s time to start applying the wallpaper! Begin at the bottom of the wall and peel off the backing. Slowly apply the wallpaper to the wall, using your hands to smooth it out as you go.

Once you reach the top of the wall, use the knife to trim off any excess wallpaper.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully installed stick-on wallpaper in your baby girl’s nursery.

Now enjoy your beautiful new space!

Plenty of designs and styles to choose from

What is a Nordic Nursery?

A Nordic nursery is a type of baby girl nursery that uses light, neutral colors to create a calming and peaceful environment.

The goal is to promote relaxation and sleep, so you’ll want to avoid using any bright or bold colors. Instead, stick with shades like white, cream, gray, and beige.

You can also use some muted pastel colors, like baby blue or pale pink.

Modern, minimal design with accents

Nordic nurseries often have a minimalistic design, so you won’t find a lot of clutter or busy patterns.

Instead, focus on finding simple and elegant pieces that can be used to create a cohesive look.

For example, consider using matching baby furniture in white or cream.

You can also add some interest with texture by using different materials like wood, metal, or glass.

What Type of Items Go Well in a Nordic Nursery?

Some of the best items for a Nordic nursery are baby furniture and decorations in neutral colors. As we mentioned before, you’ll want to avoid anything too bright or busy. That means no colorful baby blankets, toys, or artwork. Instead, stick with items that are soft and calming.

Some great ideas for baby furniture include a neutral crib, changing table, and dresser. You can also find some beautiful nursery gliders in light colors like gray or beige.

And don’t forget about storage! A simple bookshelf or toy chest can help you keep the nursery organized and tidy.

Neutral nordic decor

As far as baby decor goes, look for items that are both stylish and functional.

A wall clock, for instance, is a great way to add some visual interest to the room. And a baby mobile can help soothe your little one while she’s sleeping.

You can also find some lovely baby lamps in neutral colors to complete the look.

What flooring is best in a nursery?

There are a few things to consider when choosing flooring for a nursery.

First, you’ll want to choose a material that is soft and comfortable for your baby to crawl or play on and adapt them to suit your nursery ideas.

A carpet is a great option, but you can also find some beautiful foam or rubber mats that would work well in a nursery space. For ideas on rubber mats – visit our blog on Unfinished Basement Ideas.

Second, you’ll want to choose a material that is easy to clean. Carpet can be difficult to clean, so if you’re worried about spills or accidents, you might want to consider a different option for your nursery ideas.

Third, you’ll want to choose a material that is safe for your baby. Some flooring materials, like vinyl or laminate, can contain harmful chemicals that you’ll want to avoid in the nursery.

Finally, you’ll want to choose a material that fits your budget. Carpet is usually the most expensive option, but there are some less expensive options available, like foam mats or rubber flooring.

What should be in a nursery?

When it comes to baby girl nurseries, there are a few key things you’ll want to include.

First, you’ll need a crib.

You can find some great deals on cribs by shopping around online or at baby furniture stores. Just be sure to pick one that’s safe and comfortable for your baby. Shop the Look.

Second, you’ll need a changing table.

Again, you can find some great deals on changing tables by shopping around online or at baby furniture stores.

Baby girl nursery storage

Be sure to choose one that’s the right size for your baby and has plenty of storage for all of her things, and matches the nursery decor.

Third, you’ll need some kind of storage for all of the baby’s clothes, diapers, and other supplies. A dresser or chest of drawers is a good option.

A good idea is to purchase a chest of drawers with a changing table above. Not only will you save space, but it will make it so convenient to grab what you need when using the changing table from the drawers below. Shop the Look

Changing table

Our choice of combined changing table and storage has a removable changing tray with natural curves and complements the crib.

Toy storage for a baby girl nursery is essential – it is amazing how quickly those soft toys, books, and playthings stack up.

In keeping with the theme of the nordic baby girl nursery ideas, we have selected a large seagrass basket to keep the nursery tidy. Shop the Look.

We also need baby bedding. Be sure to choose something that’s soft and comfortable for your baby. Shop the Look

Baby girl nursery decor

Now we have all of the bigger nursery furniture out of the way, let’s concentrate on the fun part of the room.

Be inspired by rugs, prints, and all the fun things like toys and pieces of art.

Choosing curtains for a nursery

When it comes to choosing curtains for a nursery, you’ll want to pick something that is soft and airy.

Sheer curtains are a great option because they let in plenty of daylight and help create a bright and cheerful space.

If you prefer something with a little more coverage, look for curtains made from lightweight fabrics like linen or cotton.

Be sure to avoid anything too heavy or dark, as this can make the nursery feel small and cramped.

And don’t forget about the pattern if the walls are plain!

If you want to add some visual interest to the room, look for curtains with a subtle pattern or print.

I’ve chosen solid block curtains to contrast against the floral wallpaper – we don’t want too much clashing of patterns, as this particular nursery space needs to give off a relaxed vibe. Shop the Look.

Grey curtains

What type of lighting should be in a nursery?

Lighting is an important part of any baby girl’s nursery.

You’ll want to choose lighting that is soft and calming, so avoid anything too bright or harsh.

Some great options for baby nursery lighting include table lamps, floor lamps, and wall sconces.

You can also find some cute baby night lights to help your baby girl feel safe and comfortable at night.

Our choice

Take, for example, this unusual but gorgeous statement lighting that is whimsical and will give off more of a natural light in the room. It actually looks like a piece of art on the ceiling and is very feminine. Shop the Look.

Feather ceiling light

Black and white rugs

Your baby girl nursery now needs a good size rug. We can pull in more textures here, but take into account I have based my design around a wood floor. If you have a floral carpet, this rug may not work for you.

This particular rug measures at around three foot in diameter and is non-slip, which is perfect for a wood floor.

Nordic style rug

Look after yourself and stay comfy.

If you have enough in your budget, it is worthwhile checking out the different chairs that are available for your baby girl nursery.

Those sleepless nights (hopefully not too many) can be made a lot easier if you are sat in a comfy rocker.

Another good reason to include comfortable seating in your baby girl nursery ideas.

Rocking Chair 2

This particular chair is very well priced and is a rocking chair with a lower lumber pillow and matching ottoman so you can put your feet up and get comfy. Shop the Look.
