19 Stylish White Nursery Accents and Furniture Sets

Fresh white nursery with boho vibe

Paige Jones

Conventional wisdom teaches us that kids and pristine white décor are mutually exclusive. But conventional wisdom could be wrong. In some respects, white is a very practical choice for a nursery, helping parents create a space that will grow with their child.

Fresh and contemporary, white spaces are clean, bright and easy to update. Add a dramatic accent color or change out your accessories, and you have a completely new look. Simple white décor also helps nurseries to look less cluttered, covering a magnitude of post-playtime sins.

As for those grimy little noses and sticky, Crayola-wielding hands, a little bleach and a Magic Eraser go a long way in an all-white space.

Ready to throw conventional wisdom out the window? These wonderfully white nurseries did just that—with devastatingly stylish effect.

    Textural Appeal

    all white nursery with textures

    We Are True Home

    All-white rooms require a subtle complexity. In the absence of color, texture often takes on a staring role, adding character and keeping the room from looking flat. This white nursery incorporates layer upon layer of rich and varied texture. Woven pillowcases, a chunky knit throw, a painted pegboard, waffle-textured baby shirt, and bouquet after bouquet of baby's breath in glass containers suspended on twine.
