Unicorns are in! And if you're a sucker for the adorable baby pink nursery, adding a few specks of gold here and there can really kick it up a notch. There are lots of bright rainbow colored unicorn items out there, so I personally enjoy some of the understated items like this adorable unicorn plushy and towel wrap.
To achieve this look, it can be tempting to go overboard with the pinks and gold. So start subtle. Use a light neutral grey as the base for walls. Paired with white furniture, the contrast with the walls will provide a nice clean, but neutral pop. Then use a solid light pink based for bedding or an area rug to give the room a beautiful girly feel.

To take this room from plain and pink to bold and bright, add a few hints of gold throughout. This could be a select few pieces of furniture like a brass nightstand or a gold-plated lamp. Or you could consider framing your nursery art in gold frames. Alternatively, find art with sparkly gold hints to give it that glittery look. Just be careful not to overdo it. It's easy to get so excited when you're in the store and buy everything gold in sight. But remember, gold is in your secondary palette and should only be used as little hints here and there. You can also leave the gold touches up to the smaller items like unicorn plushies, unicorn bath towels, and other adorable items. For another subtle hint, swap out silver knobs with gold knobs to tie it all together.
