Fit for a Prince

An antique-style color palette is combined with tea-stained furniture, toile drapery and a crystal chandelier to make this sophisticated space. Mom found the fabrics and had a seamstress make the bedding for about the same price she would have paid in a store. Design by Rate My Space contributor abaker.

Beach Theme For Twins

White and blue walls complemented by a bright orange rug, starfish accessories and a collection of colorful shovels complete the nautical look. Design by Rate My Space contributor LittleCrownInteriors.

Black, White & Green

This neutral space is made unique with a striped wall, zebra accents and a wall quote that says, "The love of a family is life's greatest blessing." Design by Rate My Space contributor ejcsnc.

Lovely Color Mix

This mom created a stunning contrast with paint and furniture. The top wall color is Milestone by Lowe's. Below the chair rail is Lemon Chiffon by Martha Stewart, and the yellow-green accent color is Seamist by Eddie Bauer Home. Design by Rate My Space contributor JnT.

Sophisticated Girl Space

The muted pink wall color is an ideal backdrop for the black toile. A sheepskin rug softens the hardwood floor but leaves plenty of it uncovered for a classic look. Design by Rate My Space contributor MPLS.

Sweet Parisian Style

Inspired by a trip to France and chocolate, this new mom painted the woodwork gold, added rich fabrics, a sparkly chandelier and a wall monogram. Design by Rate My Space contributor ProudNewMommy.

Find Something They Can Grow Into

To save time and money later, this mom choose a wall treatment and fabrics that aren't too cutesy so she doesn’t have to redecorate once her little girl grows up. Design by Rate My Space contributor cotyjoy.

Vibrant Party Place

Not many things say "little girl" more than a tea party. This nursery is already set up for play with a child-sized table and chairs. Design by Rate My Space contributor prettypanels.

Boy's Safari

The striped walls, custom animal paintings and a monkey that seems to hang from a bamboo curtain rod all come together to show how paint can tranform a room. Design by Rate My Space contributor meli.

Squares of Color

The color-blocked wall treatment was inspired by the blanket on the chair. It coordinates with floor pillows, polka-dot rugs and a collection of record albums on the wall. Design by Rate My Space contributor treilove.

Ingenuity to Carve Out a Space

These new parents live a one-bedroom apartment. To make room for baby, they converted a sunroom into a nursery by enveloping the windows and walls with fabric. Design by Rate My Space contributor KylieMcKinney.

Three Dogs, One Baby

To keep the space baby-friendly and pet-friendly, a Dutch door is used to keep the dogs out but allow the parents to keep an eye on the baby. Design by Rate My Space contributor brodysmom.
