Somewhere between the time you get the news that you’re having a baby and labor pains,
your thoughts turn to decorating the nursery. Fortunately, there are thousands of baby
room themes and nursery design ideas out there now. I was bowled over by the choices
available. It’s a far cry from the frilly and fussy designs of yesterday. Today’s
nurseries are as hip and chic as any other room in a modern home. I’ve pulled together
some nursery ideas to get you started, including several from Taylor Morrison model homes
around the country. When you buy a Taylor Morrison home, you can recreate any of these
looks working with our Design Studio pros to add your own signature touches. If you’ve
already decorated your nursery, I’d love to see what you’ve done, so please feel free to
share pictures of your creations.
Forget pink and blue (unless you really love them). Today’s nurseries come in every color.
Orange, moss green, citrus shades and espresso brown are all hot now. If you aren’t afraid
of bold statements, this black, red and gray scheme paired with animal graphics in our
Houston-area Caraway model is one of the freshest baby room themes going.
And what future little firefighter wouldn’t love this fire engine red theme shown in our
Amadora model at Mirabella in Sacramento. It comes complete with sliding pole accent and
one of the hottest trends in nurseries, an overstuffed chair for mom or dad.
Hot pink really pops against the chocolate brown and white used by our designer in this
Funky prints and retro designs look fresh in this nursery design from She Knows.
The Cambridge model at Taylor Morrison’s Whisper Creek II community in Denver is another
example of fresh thinking. The dark furniture feels very contemporary against the soft
blue, tan and white scheme.
Another big trend is using adult décor in the nursery like this very elegant baby room
idea showcased at Ivillage.com.
The corner wall murals shown in our Bay Area La Solara model add a bright, cheerful touch
that will appeal to you and your child for years. This room also shows another trend in
nursery design: using furniture that will grow with your child. Instead of a single-use
crib, consider one that will turn into a junior bed.
