In brief: Keep it simple
I usually tell new parents to try and keep the nursery environment simple.
A crib, a changing table, some clothing shelves and perhaps a comfortable chair.

In brief: Not much
Not much is actually necessary- you will need a safe place (crib or bassinet) for baby to sleep.
Other items, which make life easier, are a changing table and pad, diaper pail, rocking chair or glider, night light (for those late night feedings), dresser for all those cute baby clothes and maybe some cute wall decorations for baby to look at.
