I struggled with a theme for our daughter’s nursery. I wanted something elegant and feminine but I didn’t like any of the bedding sets I saw for girls. And I wanted something different than the Nursery Rhyme theme we had used for our son.
So I googled for ideas and eventually came across this post: Nursery Theme Ideas and fell in love with doing a book themed nursery. It seemed perfect given that my husband and I love books and hope our children do, too. The theme was different enough from the nursery rhyme theme to make the room her own but I was also able to repurpose items we already had, including her brother’s baby bedding. (Helps that his nursery was neutral because we waited until he was born to find out his gender.) I framed book jackets for wall art and decorated the shelves with books from our collection. It was fairly inexpensive and I love how it turned out!
