The New French Nursery Decor: 14 Chic Furniture Ideas

A French nursery doesn’t have to be fussy. Living in Paris, I can tell you that most French people don’t usually decorate their nurseries with heavy 18th century-style ornate furniture that passes for “French provincial” these days. (Well, unless they are 70+ years old, in which case they are not having babies!)

The new Parisian-style nursery is more about elegant lines, classic pieces that can grow with your baby. Pieces that are easy to clean when the baby inevitably spits up on it.

This unique oval crib from Stokke expands as the baby grows, making it a sweet little cocoon for your little one. I also love the round edges instead of corners that take up less space in small Parisian apartments. (And it helps that older children are less likely to crash into it and hurt themselves!)
