Pillows

You won't stick these in baby's bed (they're not safe!), but you'll want one of these plush puffs for your rocker -- especially when you've been up nursing half the night! In white, they work in a girl's or boy's room.

Lamps

Just by adding a floral lamp shade you can transform any of your old standby's into an accent piece (like on the left). But if you're looking for a more delicate approach, we love the veiled approach (like on the right). At night, it gives the room a romantic glow too.

Rugs

A rug really anchors a room and these floral designs are charming and welcoming. On the left, the roses add a pop of personality and on the right, the blue and green designs offer color to your space.

Wallpaper

Wallpaper's back and better than ever (seriously!). But it's best when used on just one wall, kind of like an accent wall. If you're bold, choose the longest wall in your room (most likely where you'll put baby's crib), but if you're testing the waters, try a wall with a window. Adding colorful accents throughout will help neutralize the space too.

Bedding

These patterns might not work in a room for a baby boy, but we love the bright pops of color throughout. On the right, the floral is toned down by pairing it with a polka-dot fitted sheet. But on the left, it's the star of baby's bedding.
