This is How to Design a Nursery With Whimsy and Sophistication

Where: Australia

Why we love this pic: This charming nursery nails the tough-to-find balance between whimsical and sophisticated. The warm, neutral color palette paired with breezy fabrics sets a soft and inviting tone while a playful area rug adds pops of rainbow color. And tying the look together is an array of textures, from the rattan rocking horse to the woven pendant light, adding warmth and dimension to the design.

The takeaway: Merge a sophisticated color palette with whimsical decor for a flawless nursery design.
