Your baby girl is due to arrive soon, but you haven’t set up your baby’s room yet. Fortunately, we love pointing new parents in the right direction.
Like a princess, your little angel deserves only the best. After all, what are all her dresses and tutus without a fitting room she can grow up in? Your house might not be a castle, but you can make her room feel like something plucked from a fairytale.
From colors to themes, here are a few ideas to get you started:
Baby Girl Room Ideas by Color

The easiest and probably the fastest method to decorate your baby girl’s room is by simply painting the walls and ceiling with a single color —a color motif. These are the most popular colors to choose from:
Pink baby room
Pink gives off a feeling of safety and calmness. Paint your baby girl’s room pink to keep your baby feeling relaxed and at ease. It’s the same reason several hospital nurseries come in pink color.
Brown baby room
Despite being an earthy and neutral color, brown can also be used as a motif in nurseries for baby girls. Like pink, brown (especially light brown) provides a feeling of safety, stability, and security.
Golden pink baby room
Pink, mixed with a hint of gold, adds a sense of cheerfulness to the relaxing vibe. The golden hue might be subdued compared to yellow, but it still lightens the effects of pink.
Purple baby room
Another popular feminine color, purple, is also used in decorating nurseries for baby girls. Like pink, purple has a soothing effect and a kind of gentleness that is closely associated with femininity and grace. It gives a more serious vibe than pink, though.
Red baby room
You can also use red for your baby girl’s nursery but try to use paler shades of red instead of darker hues. Overly vibrant red can be too stimulating and might make your baby girl a little too active.
Theme-Based Nursery Decor Ideas

You can just go for themed designs if you need more than one color. These are some of the more popular baby girl nursery themes.
Treat your baby girl like royalty by surrounding her with princesses in a princess-themed nursery.
Girls have a natural fondness for flowers. As parents, you can foster their love for flowers and beautiful things with a floral nursery. It’s also a great way to introduce plenty of colors to your baby.
Ignite your baby girl’s love for animals with an elephant-themed nursery. These gentle giants easily capture little girls’ hearts in an almost similar way to puppies.
You can also use neutral, earthly tones like brown and green to soothe your baby girl. In the case of woodland-themed nurseries, it helps make your little girl comfortable early on with outdoor activities such as camping or hiking.
You can also go all Disney with your baby room design for your little girl. Surround her with some of Disney’s most popular characters like Olaf (the snowman), Ana and Elsa, or Cinderella.
Fairy tale-themed nursery
If you want to make her grow up with a particular fondness for magic, you can use a fairy tale theme to dress up her room. Let her sense of wonder and imagination run free with fairies and other magical creatures surrounding her all the time.

Follow these steps:

How do you maximize space in a small nursery for a baby girl?
Try these tips if you have limited space for your nursery.

- Keep your baby girl’s nursery theme simple and less detail-oriented.

What are the best themes for a newborn girl’s nursery?
Newborns can’t see clearly yet, so colors and patterns will not matter much to them. You can go for any theme you like at this stage. However, it’s a different story when they turn five months old. At this time, they will have fully developed eyesight, enabling them to appreciate your nursery theme’s colors and textures.
