10 Great Boy's Nursery Ideas
Inspiration for Creating a Cozy and Colorful Room for Your Little One
As the mother of three sons, I can definitely appreciate the balancing act that comes into decorating a boy’s nursery. You don’t want a space that is too fancy and frilly, but you still want style and comfort. That’s where creativity and bold choices come into play. Go for unexpected colors and patterns. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, and throw in a surprising piece of furniture. Boys are very visual, so be sure that your baby’s nursery has fun things for him to set his eyes on.
With its warm green walls and pops of red, blue and yellow as accent colors, this nursery has plenty of eye candy. If your room is large enough, put the crib in a corner on an angle, as shown here. This softens the hard lines in the room and adds even more interest.
Don't shy away from using vivid colors in your nursery. One cranberry accent wall is just enough to cozy up this space and provide visual stimulation for your baby without overwhelming the room.
Aside from the warm and inviting chocolate brown walls, I love the oversized, rugged chair in this nursery. It's not what you would expect in a baby's room, but it makes a terrific spot for feeding time. Your baby could enjoy this sturdy chair for years to come.
As your beautiful baby boy grows older, you'll have challenges keeping him organized. So, why not start with great storage now? Cubbies, hooks and baskets can be an early lesson in organization.
Your baby will sleep better at nap time in a dark room, but room-darkening shades don't have to be bland. Make roman shades from fun fabrics and use a blackout liner. The tailored style of these shades is perfect for boys spaces.
Very dark colors can be intimidating to use in a baby's room (or anywhere in your home), but navy blue walls work great in this nursery. The dark color creates a cozy feel while the lighter fabrics add brightness.
An unexpected splash of green immediately gets your attention in this nursery. With such a neutral palette, the vivid green changing table adds a refreshing dose of color and creates an element of surprise.
