This monochromatic, pink nursery is sweet and enchanting. Whether you choose shades of pink, blue, yellows or greens, monochromatic rooms can help to enlarge smaller spaces.

For this sweet nursery, shades of pale pinks were chosen for the walls, fabrics and furniture. It gives this sweet room a shabby chic, ultra feminine feel. Use an antique armoire for storage and place your changing table on top of a low dresser for additional storage. As your baby gets older, you can simply remove the changing pad and accessorize the dresser with photos, soft stuffed animals and a shabby chic lamp.

For the bedding, vary the patterns with stripes, solids and tiny flowers keeping the colors similar for a sense of uniformity. Keep your window treatments simple with light, lace panels or balloon valances. Decorate the walls with flower prints, or Victorian children themed prints. A large mirror with delicately stenciled roses adds both interests as well as creating an illusion of space and light.

This charming and sweet nursery can easily grow with a little girl with a little planning. From baby to little girl, this nursery eludes a sense of fairy tale fantasy and elegance.
