Nursery Inspiration!

With a MoS baby on the way, I have been searching high and low for ideas and inspiration. It is harder than you think to find chic nursery spaces. I absolutely do not want a room that looks like it belongs in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog (think giant wooden letters hanging on the wall), and generally speaking, rooms that are too babyish don't really appeal to me.
Here are some fabulously inspiring nurseries I have found!
Generally speaking, wallpaper borders are a no-no. But it works in this perfect pink room! (Or maybe the perfect pink room works in spite of the border). Love the silk drapes and chandelier.
Traditional Home, by Ann Kent
This has to be one of the most fab nurseries ever! Typically toile in a baby room isn't really our thing, but make that toile fuchsia and put it on the ceiling, and wow, this is amazing!

Isn't this mural so beautiful! We love the sconces too. What a great place to rock your baby!

An all-white nursery may not be the most practical thing in the world, but this room is just stunning. Perfection.

My Decor Pad Everyone loves this Domino nursery, with good reason! It is just so much fun and has so many layers of details (but it's not too much). And we love the sheepskin rug- you will definitely find one of those in a MoS nursery!
Domino We would love to see more of this gorgeous nursery! The glider in a "grown-up" fabric and the draperies are just gorgeous- exactly what we like to see in a baby room.
Palmer Weiss, photo courtesy of La Dolce Vita How fun are the stripes painted on these traditional wood floors?! We love how bright and airy this room is!
Cottage Living This nursery totally reminds us of Frank's fabulous renovation in Father of the Bride II (one of our favorites, ha). A convex mirror, topiary, and vintage tole chandelier in a baby's room- genius!
My Decor Pad For the bold baby room, Jenna Lyons did a fabulous job using black, white, and yellow. We love the striped ceiling, and the black wall surprisingly works here!
Domino We are in love with this fab nursery from Julie Richards. From the thick stripes on the walls to the daring zebra rug to the yellow and lucite ottoman, it is so much fun! We might not be brave enough to do a zebra rug in a boy's room, but she makes it work here!
Julie Richards, photo courtesy of Shelter Turquoise and yellow is one of our favorite color combinations, so of course we love this nursery! The yellow glider with white piping is probably our favorite piece, especially when paired with the yellow and white bumpers.
Photo courtesy of Elements of Style While we might poke fun at Pottery Barn's giant wooden letters, we are not opposed to ALL letters. We love the handpainted framed alphabet here!
My Decor Pad Another Domino look we love! The giant giraffe just makes us happy, and we love the vintage Dick and Jane prints on the wall. The chandelier is gorgeous as well- we'd love to see more of it!
What a pretty room for a baby girl! We love how they converted a regular chest of drawers into a changing table (we are definitely copying that idea), and we just love how much the white furniture stands out against the purple walls!
Cookie Magazine
Another one of our favorites... This room is so elegant and soothing. While we love us some color, the tan and white of this room is anything but boring! We don't think that Louis chair looks too comfy for late-night feedings, but it sure is pretty!
Chic Shack
Yellow and turquoise again! We love the simple Jenny Lind crib, especially when paired with the fun geometric quilt on the wall and the butterfly appliques.
Celerie Kemble What an adorable baby boy nursery! The painted (0r bleached) white floors look so pretty with the white bedding and furniture, and the blue accents really pop!
My Decor Pad
And finally, from talented blogger Simply Seleta, we just love what she did with her nursery! The polka dotted draperies with bamboo shades are so lovely, and the oversize sailboat on the chest of drawers is so much fun!
Which stylish nursery is your favorite? Do you have any favorite color combinations for nurseries and children's rooms?

Lovely roundup, and so truly noted about wanting nursery inspiration that does not include a cartoon theme. Erika at Urban Grace is working on nursery as well and it's beautiful. I think that original domino photo from way back really started new thinking in nursery decor.

I totally think the zebra works in the boy nursery! It was just done perfectly.. I really enjoyed the colors on the wall too.. totally fun and mind stimulating for a little baby. LOVE IT! That one is my favorite.
