Florals are a go-to theme for baby rooms everywhere. There are many ways to embellish your nursery design with the beauty and charm of flowers, from statement floral wallpaper to flower motif decor. While it's easy to understand the crowd-pleasing appeal of this baby room classic, how do you keep your floral nursery design feeling fresh and modern?
"The key is to look for soft and modern floral details such as a simple line drawn floral wallpaper or soft floral toned textiles and bedding," says interior designer Rebecca Simon of Maison Ellie, who specializes in kids spaces. "And you certainly don’t want to overdo it with too many floral accents—stick to no more than three floral elements!"
Check out these pretty, inspiring nurseries that incorporate florals in a number of styles and color palettes, each an ode to the beauty of nature and babyhood in their own unique way.
