    Nate Berkus for Target Chevron Wood Box

    A little treasure, this hideaway box would be great for pacifiers or even hair bows. Decorative, small storage that's not from the baby aisle brings an added touch of flair to the room. (Plus, I just adore Nate!)

    The Land of Nod Isosceles Lamp

    This bright-yellow lamp is a little slice of sunshine. It doesn't scream "nursery," so it can grow with your little one, making it even more swoon-worthy.

    Bel Bambini Dwell Studio Aqua Owl Frame

    A modern picture frame in a bright pop of color makes for a decorative accent piece in the nursery. How can you not love this one?

    World Market Antique Brass Elephant Knobs

    My favorite way to give a piece of furniture a facelift is with decorative knobs. It's such an easy and inexpensive way to add charm to a dresser—especially in a nursery.

    Pendleton Baby Blanket

    Unique and just plain pretty, this blanket adds a statement to any nursery. I wouldn't mind having it in my room, either!

    Lettie Belle Pillows

    It doesn't get much better than a cute felt owl appliqued by hand and a pillow made of organic cotton, does it? This is neutral enough to work well with either gender.
