Shiplap. French doors. Open concept. These are a few of our—and by “our” we mean Joanna Gaines’s—favorite things. There’s no denying that across America, HGTV lovers now dream in antique pitchers and restored wood floors, thanks to popular home makeover show Fixer Upper. So when it comes to designing a nursery for baby, it’s no surprise that so many people turn to Joanna, the queen of rustic chic, for ideas. Get inspired by these nurseries that look like they could have been designed by Joanna herself, and then shop the looks for yourself!

Joanna is always keen on bringing more natural light into every room she designs. That’s why she often skips on window treatments. We wouldn’t recommend this for a nursery, but you can mimic the effect with airy curtains and light colored walls.

Make a statement with Joanna-approved alphabet letter art. Whether it’s a standalone piece or part of a gallery wall, showing off an initial is a go-to Gaines move.

Joanna loves to incorporate copper tones into her designs. From kitchen backsplashes to accent tables, she frequently works the metal into her color schemes.

Considering a wooden accent wall? An authentic reclaimed wood wall is totally Joanna. Instagram user @sdasilva10 actually used real wood planks from her local lumber yard to build her wall, but for a low maintenance option, try wallpaper.

Shop the look: Shiplap wallpaper, $22, Amazon.com

One of Joanna’s favorite ways to spruce up a room? Some gorgeous greenery. Go for faux, or double check that your plant of choice is non-toxic for humans.

When it comes to wall decor, Joanna opts for simple geometric shapes like oval mirrors and sturdy shelving. The oval mirror featured here offers even more depth and light to the already bright and inviting nursery design.

Shop the look: Similar mirror, $121, Wayfair.com

Pay hommage Joanna’s Texas hometown with an ode to the farmhouse. Consider incorporating an authentic element like a ladder or rustic shutter set. Bonus points if you can find it in reclaimed wood!
