It's official...you are going to have a girl.
You are in a whirl of activities from deciding on the baby name to choosing adorable baby clothes (humming softly to yourself). Of course, you want the most beautiful nursery for your precious princess.
Tired of pink? The notion of pink nursery themes for girls is certainly overdone. But there is an element of truth to the theory. Show any little girl an array of dresses and you can be sure she will pick the frilliest, laciest pink one she can find. Perhaps it is a genetic thing, but most girls prefer pastel colors while boys pick harder, bolder colors.
When you're decorating for your baby, remember that she won’t begin to appreciate the nursery design until she starts her toddler years.
Then what exactly should you concentrate on for the girl nursery themes?
As your baby grows, she will learn to take care of herself, to dust off the bruised knee, to maneuver around sharp edges, to drive carefully (??). But right now...in these early months, she depends completely on you to keep her from harm. It’s a BIG responsibility.
Avoid nursery designs that seem unsafe such as long drapes that could smother a baby or lamps with stuck-on beads that could choke her.

Your choice of color and patterns of nursery design ideas can activate her mind and stimulate her senses. Black and white is a classic contrast perfect as nursery themes. Babies respond to bright, clear colors and large basic shapes.
You have chosen your girl nursery themes. Now make a list of the theme oriented items you wish to purchase. Remember not to overdo your chosen theme by putting it everywhere.
(Tip: Try to bring in a few themed items coupled with others in related themes. For example, if you are going with the fairy theme, stick a pair of wings on the wall, perhaps toadstools painted on wall at baby’s eye level. A fairy themed comforter with a solid colored sheet in matching colors will complete the look.)
Perhaps you do not want to go with the popular girl room themes but want one that is unique to your baby. This will take a little more time and effort on your part. You need Inspiration.
