Classic Colors

A classic color palette, mixed with an array of pattern and texture make for a nursery that is not only adorable, but it's also a smart design that will easily grow with baby.

Meaningful Design

Laila Ali, the daughter of boxing legend Muhammad Ali, hoped to create a baby room that would inspire and encourage her little one. Symbols of compassion, courage and spirituality fill the space, while hints of family pride take center stage. The photo above the crib is an image of Muhammad Ali holding baby Laila.

Fun and Flexible

To transform a spare bedroom into a baby room/guest room combo, designer Brian Patrick Flynn combined bright, fun colors with classic furnishings and plenty of style. The result is a sophisticated design that can be enjoyed by babies and adults alike.

Room to Grow

For this sweet pink and red nursery, designer Sarah Richardson chose to create a space that would grow with the child, opting for a beautiful striped chair and stylish curtains that can be repurposed elsewhere in the home if necessary.

Right on Trend

A trendy color palette sets the tone for this cool and feminine baby girl's room. The hand-painted chevron pattern is the focal point of the space, and unique additions, like the plush elephant rocker, give the room a one-of-a-kind feel.

Cake and Compromise

Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro, and his wife Lisa wanted their baby’s gender to be a surprise, so designer Sherri Blum created a space that was both gender neutral and combined Buddy’s idea for a safari-themed room with Lisa’s desire for a traditional space that would be consistent with the rest of the home.


What was once a home office became a global-inspired nursery with black chalkboard walls, bright pops of color and plush busts of African animals above the crib. Not featured in this photo, a collection of globes and a mural of the world add to the globetrotting theme.

Royal Treatment

This royal baby room was designed for Dr. Phil's first grandaughter, Avery Elizabeth. Gold-leaf accents, an elegant silk canopy and a stunning chandelier ensure this nursery is fit for a princess.

Endless Options

A gender-neutral design gives first-time parents Jessica and Scott the option of letting this room grow with son Bryan or reusing it for another baby in the future. Rather than settling on one theme, several ideas, including travel, animals and literature, were combined to give baby Bryan a little taste of everything.

Peaceful Beginnings

Former Spice Girl Mel B. wanted a nursery that would be calm and serene. Delicate colors, flowing fabric, and a touch of glamour make the space the perfect place for mom and baby to bond and relax in peace.

Bohemian Flair

Animal busts, colorful paintings and mixed floral decor lend a Bohemian touch to this nursery built for two. Twin sisters Reverie and Boheme share the vibrant space where color is key and inspiration abounds.

Up, Up and Away

Designer Vern Yip skipped the traditional mobile and instead opted for a collection of hot-air balloons to add interest and whimsy to the space.

Girly Touch

A great rug can often tie an entire room together, as is the case in this little girl's room. Decked out in pink and green, the nursery is sweet and feminine without being overdone.

Delicate Decor

Soft colors, lush carpeting and comfy furniture make this room a cozy place for baby to grow. The dove gray walls and ethereal curtains lend a light, airy feel to the tasteful space.

Pretty in Purple

In this grand nursery, a filigreed crib takes center stage below a sheer canopy. Mauve damask wallpaper and lavish window treatments up the style in this bedroom fit for a princess.
