Books can be the most influential sparks of imagination. They bring you to another world within your mind — and children’s books are where it all starts.

We can still remember walking to school with Lilly and her purple, plastic purse, eating cookies with that mischievous mouse, and exploring the Hundred Acre Wood. The illustrations on the pages — the colors, the characters, the text — stick with you forever. Which is why we absolutely love the idea of designing a nursery based off of one of these books. What better way to welcome your new baby home than to immerse them in the magic of literature?

Here are 12 nurseries inspired by children’s books for your inspiration:

1. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
