Shiplap. French doors. Open concept. These are a few of our—and by ‘our’ we mean Joanna Gaines’—favorite things. There’s no denying that across America, HGTV lovers now dream in antique pitchers and restored wood floors, thanks to the 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 inspiration. Get inspired by these nurseries that look like they could have been designed by Joanna herself, just in time for Gaines baby no. 5.
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.

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.
