A Fab, Fabric-Draped Nursery
Interior designer Melodie Rubin of San Francisco-based House of Ruby has a way with fabric, color, and pattern, so it's no surprise that she's created some extraordinary kids' rooms. Using a combination of trade sources (including that amazing aqua-and-red Zimmer-Rohde fabric), wallpaper from Jane Churchill and Nina Campbell, and finds from Anthropologie, Jonathan Adler, and Serena & Lily, Melodie has created a sophisticated room (and whimsical bathroom) that equally appeals to little ones and their style-loving moms.

Pink and Gold Princess Pad
Little Crown Interiors, the California-based design firm created by Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco, has created some seriously enchanting nurseries for celebs including Laila Ali, Melanie Brown, and J.R. Martinez, so we weren't surprised that their latest design is beyond dazzling in gold and pink. "Gold has been making a serious comeback as the neutral of choice for nursery design," Naomi says. "We were thrilled with the opportunity to incorporate the trend in harmony with the feminine and glamorous Old Hollywood touches this new mom so craved." Full of luxe nursery furniture from Art For Kids and Angel Song, silk crib bedding, a unique vanity, and an ornate mirror, this nursery is truly one of a kind. Check it out by clicking here.
A New Vintage Nursery Full of Personality and Charm
Take an ounce of NYC sophistication, a smidgen of Canadian practicality, and an ounce of LA whimsy, and you'll find yourself in the world of Tamara Kaye-Honey. The Pasadena-based interior decorator behind House of Honey and mom of two recently completed work on a nursery for the 2012 Hampton Designer Showhouse that showcases her signature "New Vintage Style."
Forgoing any hint of traditional pink or blue, or the more popular white-on-white, Tamara transformed the space into an ode to the more eclectic side of childhood with the dark jewel-box colors that highlight the Uptown Collection of baby furniture she designed in collaboration with Nurseryworks. Click here to see how she takes dark colors and antique pieces to create a whimsical room for baby.
A Shabby Chic Nursery
When it comes to nursery decor, creating a comfortable yet chic space can be hard — or so we thought! Blending baby with design, the above nursery does it perfectly, becoming a space we have come to covet. While it's clearly a baby's room with its soft textures and whimsical touches, it has elements that reflects not just baby, but the new parents too. Floral bedding mixed with modern accents creates a room with a story just as unique as the memories soon to be created. Get inspired and get the look for your own home by clicking here.

Gracie's Eclectic, Sweet Nursery
Interior designer and blogger Bailey McCarthy of Peppermint Bliss is a young, hip mama, and her daughter Gracie's room shows off her daring design skills in spectacular fashion. Bailey even found a craftsman to recreate a Paule Marrot tulip fabric (recently featured on Mad Men) that had been discontinued! An electric mix of colors, patterns, and design styles makes this nursery beautifully unique and marvelously whimsical (the gigantic daffodils are just fantastic!). Click here to fall in love with Gracie's nursery.
Sandy shades of beige ground the space while white trims and over-the-crib curtains maintain its charm. This nursery is pleasing to the eye thanks to monochromatic furniture and matching knickknacks — a great gender-neutral option.
Melanie Brown's Chic Antique Nursery
Melanie Brown's pop star fame isn't her first priority anymore, and the nursery she created for her lil one proves it. Prior to the birth of baby Madison last year, the former Spice Girl (aka Scary Spice) and her husband Stephen Belafonte turned to LA's Little Crown Interiors to design a quiet sanctuary. Antique silver furniture, plum crushed velvet, and ivory damask work together to create a calm oasis in the midst of that storm. Take a detailed look at the room by clicking here.
Four Girls, One Room
We're not the only ones who have redecorated with a little help from Pinterest. When Shannon of Googie Momma was brainstorming how to fit her five children (four girls, one boy) into two bedrooms, a pin from another mom-to-many blogger inspired her to create a bunk room for her girls. The end result is a magical shared space for four little heads to rest. Keep reading to check out all the red, aqua, and striped details.

A Bold Aqua and Pink Baby Girl's Room
Katy Mimari, the textile-loving designer behind baby bedding company Caden Lane, created a bold room full of hot pink and aqua tones for her daughter, Lila. "Lila's nursery is a whimsical mix of color, print, and design. Since this is my third baby, I wanted to be a little wild and decided to make a statement with the dark pink dresser and white glider.

J.R. Martinez's Emotionally Charged Nursery

A Grown-Up Girlie-Glam Room
We were wowed by the woodland bedroom Traci Fleming, owner of Nurseryworks, created for her son, Mason. So it's no surprise that his big sister's room is equally awesome. Using a mix of vintage and contemporary furnishings and accessories, Piper's sophisticated room has a whimsical feel that's totally kid-appropriate, but it also has a sense of glamour that will work well as she grows up. We have to admit, vintage Murano lights and Asian bedside tables, a Madeline Weinrib ikat rug, and coral tones have us feeling a bit jealous of little Piper's bedroom. Click here for more photos.
Pink and White Nursery
Solid white furniture and painted floors make bright pink accents stand out in this contemporary nursery. Meanwhile, the patterned rug offers a colorful, practical texture piece.

A Candy-Colored Nursery With the Happiest Ceiling Ever!
NYC-based interior decorator Lisa Hershman's career in the design world began when she started helping out friends with their apartments for fun.

Penelope Disick's Sweet and Sophisticated Nursery
There's no doubt that this pink, pink, and more pink nursery belongs to Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's little girl, Penelope. Kourtney actually designed this room herself, save the pink grass-cloth wall coverings from Ralph Lauren and a rug by Madeline Weinrib. From the modern Oeuf Sparrow Crib and Serena and Lily's Pink Senegalese Storage Baskets to the pink Hermès baby blanket and Nurseryworks's White Tree Bookcase, the room is primarily a pink-and-white wonderland — except for the stunning Marjorie Skouras Design Turquoise Empire Chandelier. But our favorite find in the sweet room is Danish toy maker Maileg's Princess and the Pea set.
An Out-of-the-Way Focal Point
In Ave Rose's minimalist nursery, the focal point hangs from the ceiling. The Ikea Pendant Lamp ($90) is a relative steal, and it serves a purpose while also adding excitement to the room without taking up an inch of floor space. Source: Apartment Therapy
