Nurseries are always fun rooms to decorate! And when decorating for your baby, it’s a great idea to leave the theme of the nursery not be centered around the child being a baby, since they’re only a baby for a short little while. Keeping the theme of the nursery all to one decor scheme allows for the room to grow with the baby.
According to thebump.com a great time to start preparing the nursery is between 16 and 20 weeks pregnant. Three things to consider: safety, comfort, and the future. And whether you plan to co-sleep, sleep train, or a combination of both, the nursery will be used for so much more than just sleeping and you want the room to make you happy when you go in.
Bringing bold colors in is a great way to show off colors in the nursery. As the baby gets old you can walk around the room, identifying the colors and relating the colors to colors you see in books, on clothes, out the window etc. Project Nursery said “The 70s are back and in color! Plum, sage green, mustard and mauve are making a comeback. It’s like fall 24/7, and we’re feeling really good about that.”
Big floral accent walls are also definitely in right now! Whether it’s wallpaper you install or a decal you put up, this is a great way to make a statement. Floral statement walls also give a timeless, classic look with a slight vintage feel. With a dramatic wall statement piece it’s best to keep the rest of the room fairly neutral and light toned.
Creating a timeless, simple, nursery is great for babies since keeping it simple means there is less to outgrow. Metal crib bed frame, neutral light colors, simple bedding, wood toys, etc. All these items could be in a nursery from 2020, to 100 years ago! Adding a board and batten wall will also create a timeless, classic look while creating an accent wall.
Bohemian decor is all the rage right now. You can go either light and airy boho or dark and moody boho and both are fabulous! Often boho theme has wood elements, real plants, patterns, and natural colors. Sometimes rich velvet textures make an appearance in boho decor as well.
Here are some neutral boho nursery ideas
And here are some more moody colorful Boho themed nurseries:
Nautical has always been a classic way to decorate nurseries and when you live on a coast and can relate the nautical part to baby’s life and travels!
Farmhouse style will be a little rustic, a lot of whites and oil rubbed bronze and maybe a little greenery to freshen things up. An accent wall with shiplap either painted white or stained dark wood. Sometimes farmhouse barn doors are present, too!
This decor scheme can be so many different things, but overall it’s minimalist and doesn’t have too much clutter – which can be so hard to achieve with all the baby things. Clean lines, no clutter, bright neutral colors, and natural light.
So many beautiful nurseries to look at here! And the best part of creating your own gorgeous nursery, is that you don’t necessarily have to follow along with any of these themes, you can mix and match different elements from each one and do your own thing!
