387 Traditional Nursery Decor

When decorating your nursery, try to think long term with a style that can last up to 6 years or until a child starts to request a different room decor. Decide first whether you want a neutral color scheme or one that happily reflects your baby’s gender and then work from there. Greens, yellows and blues work for boys and girls alike. Decorating the nursery is a small but fun aspect of being a parent, so don’t be afraid to have fun! More

Some decor questions to ask yourself include:

What nursery theme will work for my space?

One of the fun things about decorating for a baby is the breadth of themes you can incorporate, ranging from monkeys or a jungle theme to outer space, butterflies or cars. While your baby is growing, you can use this opportunity to pick out a subject or theme you and your child love. Reflect on your own hobbies and passions and consider making it a theme. This theme can be reflected in vinyl wall stickers or decals, and you can also use stencils to paint patterns above the crib or around the nursery. Bring in a personal touch by painting a mural on the wall. Consider bringing out your theme even further with stuffed animals as well as fabric patterns.

What are some great baby-specific items I can include?

A nice crib with adorable crib sheets and baby bedding is a great start. Pick out a comfortable glider or rocker and a soft throw to keep your baby warm as you rock your baby to sleep with nursery rhymes. You can pick out a musical or decorative mobile to hang over the crib from the ceiling. The baby’s mobile can easily coordinate with the theme, featuring animals or airplanes.

What other nursery decorations should I use?

A children’s rug to suit your theme is at your disposal, as well as brightly patterned curtains. Spell your baby’s name out with wooden or patterned letter shapes above a door or by the crib. A chandelier is a nice lighting piece that many nursery rooms have included. You can also place a bed crown and canopy over the crib. Go DIY and hang a handmade garland across the wall or repaint a sideboard in a bright and bold color. You can also hang a quilt as a piece of tapestry or use it to keep your baby warm, or decorate with baby-themed wallpaper. A themed switch plate and night light are also nice touches to include.

Incorporate decorative storage items with fabric storage boxes, baskets or ottomans. Ottomans also come in fun shapes like puzzle pieces that can fit in nicely with your nursery. As your baby grows up, install a toy hammock or invest in a toy organizer to keep your baby’s toys from scattering all over the room.
