Nursery Decor in pastels- My baby's room - Due August 22nd 2011

 I am expecting a little girl in a few months and am just trying to think of furnishing and decorating my baby's room. I really want the baby room to have a warm, light, airy feel . I don't necessarily want to have a theme but am partial to butterflies, birds and polka dots . I want the room to be practical too with items that could transition from baby to toddler and one day pre-teen and teen. I want most of the items to be hand made at least handcrafted . Rather than only pink I really love a mix colors like aqua blue, powder pink, mint green and yellow .

Some of the rooms below have give an idea of the color and look I am going for.

Color Inspiration:
I really like the mix of brights and pastels here , this is just the look I would like with a little less bright colors. I would like to put touches of fuchsia pink, bright orange, turquoise blue mixed into my pastel base colors. I hope It won't be too much.
Love the overall look of this nursery not a big fan of the chest of drawers though.
love the blue and green shades, the sofa is gorgeous!
Love the pink and yellow combination here.
From the heirloom range by Serena and Lily , gorgeous embroidery and very feminine.While I want to be gender neutral, this color combo and set just won me over.

Another set of  Serena and Lily , the powder blue here is perfect , I love the retro wren design so different to the usual butterflies etc people choose for girls.

Love this color combo from Serena and Lilly

I am going to start with getting the basic furniture first and then the bedding and build around it.

What gorgeous nurseries and beautiful color schemes, especially luv the 3rd and 5th pics. Pastels with splashes of color would be great, babies luv the visual stimulation. Hope you'll show us the finished nursery.
