Baby Girl Nursery Organization and Tour
Table of Contents
Nursery Organization & Tour is Finally here!
We decided on a simple, girly style with boho decor touches. Admittedly, I’m better at organizing than I am at decorating, so I will also share how I organized everything around her room, including her closet!
Hopefully this nursery organization and tour gives you some inspiration if you are looking to get your baby’s nursery decorated or more organized! And I hope you enjoy!
Let’s get started!
Starting off this nursery organization and tour…. with the paint color!
The color we chose is called Intimate White by Sherwin Williams. It’s a very soft, cool-toned pink. We love how pretty and girly it is! I initially wanted simple, white walls, but my husband convinced me to embrace having a girl and go full on pink! I’m so glad we did!
I also wanted (& still want) a pretty accent wall with some wallpaper, but it just never happened. Maybe someday!
Now onto all the decor! Just a heads up, I got some things at Homegoods, so unfortunately I can’t link those items for you guys. But I will link absolutely everything I can find!
The faux fur rug is from Homegoods. Ikea has one too!
I like to keep the top of the dresser as clear as possible. It’s such an easy place for clutter to stack up!
The only two things I keep on there are a rack for her bows (link to one similar) and a plant pot from Homegoods that I store diaper cream, hairbrush, and lotion for easy access during diaper changes.
As I’m showing you around the styling, I’ll also add in sections about the nursery organization. So, first let’s talk drawer organization.
These drawer organizers are amazing! (I’ve linked them on Amazon, you also can get them for a few dollars cheaper at Ikea.)
Here’s how I’ve organized each drawer:
- Top left- pants, shorts legging (image shown above)
- Top right- diapers, wipes, changing pad liner (image shown above)
- Middle left- pajamas & onesies
- Middle- Shirts & tops
- Middle right- headbands & bows (don’t judge me y’all, I know I have too many)
- Bottom left- extra diapers & wipes, diaper pail bag
- Bottom right- changing pad covers & crib sheets
Play Area & Tepee
The tepee is from Cozy Culture. Evelyn LOVES it! And it’s my favorite part of the entire room; we all spend so much time in it! It’s so cute watching her peep her head through the little window. My husband is also known to take the occasional nap in it (okay fine, I’m guilty too)
The basket holding her stuffed animals & the macrame on the wall are both from HomeGoods.
Our alphabet wall hanging (shown below) is the #1 part of her nursery that I get asked about! It was a sweet gift from my talented mother-in-law, she made it herself! If you want to make one, find some alphabet fabric (check craft stores), sewing it over a wooden dowel, then hanging it with command hooks.
The Crib Area
The crib was also from Rooms2Go but is no longer available on the site. Here is a similar one on Amazon.
The mobile is also handmade… by me! I wanted one with moons (for obvious reasons!) and I couldn’t find one I liked. So I just made it myself.
The woven basket next to the crib is a home for extra blankets.
“The sweet baby girl” wall hanging is from HomeGoods.
We also have blackout blinds on both windows (a total must-have in my opinion!)
Oh and that little baby monitor is by Motorola.
The rocking lamb is another one of my favorite parts of the entire room. Evelyn loves riding it (& letting all of her stuffed animals ride it with her!)
It was gift from Evelyn’s great-grandmother; and it is so special to us. The brand is called Rockabye.
The woven basket is full of more toys & blankets and was another Homegoods find.
Tucked away in the final corner is our little reading nook.
Funny story about this chair… It’s from Amazon. And it’s honestly not my favorite… I ordered it by accident! It literally showed up at our front door and we checked our recent orders and yep I ordered it by mistake! Good ole late-night breastfeeding Amazon scrolls!
I wish I go back and exchange it and buy one that better fits the style of the room. However, we can’t justify spending hundreds of dollars on another one just for aesthetic purposes, so WE GOOD.
The grey rug is Ikea but the exact one is no longer available.
The simple white shelves are from Ikea. I’ve styled some special keepsakes on them, all of which were gifts. I love personalizing a room with unique, sentimental pieces!
Entryway & Door
My diaper bag usually hangs on the back of the door (& my husband always takes it off because it annoys him)
The accordion rack is only $6 on Amazon! I love putting random pretty things on it that make me smile. This dress she wore for her first birthday, and the sweet little bag was a gift from my aunt.
My husband got her height chart on Facebook Marketplace. They have a ton of similar ones you can customize on Etsy.
Under the height chart, I’ve thrown another bin from Homegoods that we use Evelyn’s laundry basket. I like that it has handles so it’s easy to carry around.
As you can probably tell already from this nursery organization, I’m pretty into organizing, like, basically everything.
I want it to look cute yeah, but functionality is more important to me so it’s easy to keep things tidy. My mantra is to make sure to have a place for absolutely everything, and then to label it all so other people know where to find things/put them away.

DIY Custom Shelving
The ultimate nursery organization hack! DIY “custom” shelving for the closet! But I actually just measured and bought three inexpensive bookcases that fit perfectly inside.
Make sure to secure them tightly to the wall with brackets.
- Top left- extra bibs & washcloths
- Top right- bathing suits
Middle left- clothes/shoes she doesn’t fit in yet
- Middle right- jackets/cardigans
- Bottom two- shoes and clothes she’s outgrown – I messily throw things in them as she outgrows them, and then every few months I organize them all in to the bigger bins up top. More on those in a minute.
In the unit left side, I’ve organized her shoes, a few extra diaper bags, & some extra blankets.
The white bins on the right side of the closet are actually the same drawer dividers from her drawers. There are some more blankets, extra diapers, and then honestly just a bunch of random stuff that’s not really organized. I think it’s important to have a basket (or three) like this in every room where you can just throw stuff that doesn’t really have a way of being categorized.
Top of the Closet
Not such a fun section to talk about, but having designated spaces for lesser-used items really helps keep the nursery organized. And this is a nursery organization after-all, so here we go!
I use the bins on the top left for clothes that Evelyn has outgrown. I have them organized by size and labelled with my label maker. These bins are these from Walmart.
The bags on the middle of the top shelf are extra toys that I rotate through.
MOM PRO TIP: I only keep a handful of toys out in the house at a time, and I rotate through them every few weeks. Evelyn thinks she’s getting new toys and doesn’t even notice! It keeps things MUCH more manageable around the house because it’s less toys to put away (or step on) each day.
The bins on the top right are where I keep things from when she was a baby that we don’t use anymore that I want to save for future babies. Things like carseat covers, baby wraps, boppy covers, etc. Instead of having all of that stuff randomly around the house, I decided to dedicate a space for it. (These bins are literally like 15 years old and I haven’t a clue where they’re from!)
That was a long one! If you made it all the way to the end, you are a total rockstar!
I hope you found this nursery organization and tour helpful if you are in the process of designing your own!
See you next time mamas! Sending you my best.
