Getting your Nursery Focal Point Started
Your crib will make the ideal focal point in your newly-appointed nursery. It makes sense to go as highly-visual as possible while keeping within your budget.
Ideally, you want your crib bedding to contrast against your space's wall color and command all the attention upon first glance. Bright pink is a good option if you want to go girly-girl.
Here's a mix of genres suitable for a baby girl's nursery. You can be as cute or 'fluffy' as you'd like; just study the design and go with what catches your fancy.
Using high-contrast, budget-friendly bedding-- albeit mini crib sets--like these bright pink ones, will make easy work of your first step at creating a spectacular focal point and lovely, finished nursery for your little girl.
Mini Crib Sets: An Extra Measure of Safety
Less is More
It's been well documented that less is best when it comes to in-the-crib bedding and crib safety for newborns. I shudder to think I was among the 'lucky' moms from decades ago where we were encouraged to put baby to bed on their abdomen.
Newborns don't have the ability to lift their head and reposition it if breathing is interrupted. Using >less bedding with these mini sets inside the crib is a smart start: you don't want a puddling of blanket material to gather around your little girl's nose and mouth. Very scary.
Here's a look at practical but lovely mini bedding sets ~ just enough for a dramatic impression but less fuss. And money.
Cute Owl Nursery Theme
Getting Baby's Wall Color Right
Cute Owl bedding sets are very popular in nurseries these days. You've the option to create a woody look or keep to pastels for a girly~girl affair. Here's two such cutesy owl 3-piece mini crib sets for baby girls' nurseries with their tell-tale, pastel pink base.
Bathe walls in pink or opt for a color you've pulled from the bedding set, like greens, lavender or tans. Each color will produce a dramatically different atmosphere, so it's best to have several samples custom mixed at those big-box home improvement stores. Brush each color on all four walls and look at it morning, noon and night to get a feel for how the color plays with the day's light and shadow.
You'll find your perfect wall color if it's in keeping with the bedding set's tone. Decorating gets easier from here, I promise!
Budget & Brilliance: Wall Decals
The Versatile Cute Owl Design
Isn't this cute owl wall decal the cutest, ever? Making wall art work in your space is easy if you bear the size of the wall versus the art in mind. My biggest rule: go as big with the art as your wall area will support. Too many little pictures will result in a cluttered look that you don't want for a restful look and feel.
Wall decals are my absolute faves for art in most spaces ~ nursery rooms especially ~ they're removable, reusable, wipeable (BIG bonus in kids' rooms), easy-to-apply and are amazingly cheap.
You've also the option to create a huge mural by cutting or adding pieces from two or more wall decals. Draw your idea out on a piece of paper. Create a flower garden, magical forest, castle; the themes are endless.
I've included a Youtube video tutorial for applying wall decals below. Be warned, though: see how easy wall decals are and you'll be hooked!

Bedding Safety: Why Less is More
I just love color! As I mentioned above, color is important for newborns. Their eyes don't sharply focus; studies have shown they greatly appreciate patterns and contrasts over solid colors or low-contrasts design.
It's best to paint walls a less bright color, as oranges and reds are stimulating colors and baby may have a tougher time settling down come naptime where you're not able to block those lively walls (at night, just turn out baby's light) . Not good.
I love this sweet, Cotton Tale Designs Lizzie 4-piece mini crib bedding set. It has a spirited and artsy look to it that's quite unique and will certainly steal the show, earning it's keep as the main attraction in your space.
