We’ve all been there: We pop online for nursery decor ideas, and 40 minutes later, we’re still scrolling and feeling more zoned out than inspired. There’s no question that Instagram is an amazing source for design guidance and creative energy, but it helps to start with a list of truly gifted resources to avoid wasting precious time. So we’ve rounded up ten accounts that will help inspire the nursery of your dreams and save you time—the greatest resource of all!
A one-stop feed for all things nursery, Project Nursery tops our list for the best feed to follow for nursery decor and design ideas. They curate a wide range of styles from Southern-inspired to boho farmhouse and everything in between; scroll through the feed and find a beautifully designed nursery for every style and taste. You can even upload your project to their website once you finish to pay it forward and inspire the next home designer.
Sarah and Josh, the parent duo behind Timberwoods Design, aim to provide a loving nod to generations past with their beautiful series of scrips and blocks. Each piece is created by hand, timeless, and loved by children and parents. That's their primary business, but we're featuring them because their Instagram feed is a wonderland of precious, peaceful nurseries (and babies!).

If you want to work with a company to design your baby's room, Havenly is a great first stop on your path to decorating a blank slate. You can use it for any room in your home, not just nurseries, and they help with everything from budgeting to sourcing. Havenly works with a number of reasonably priced retailers, like Wayfair and Target, meaning you can ask your designer to choose a crib that’s under $300. Just have a quick question, like what mobile would work over the crib or where to find a stylish glider? For $19, you can get hands-on help with smaller details. Check out their Insta-feed for inspiration and to see if you'd like to move on to their website for more info.
