Designing a nursery can be a super fun and imaginative journey! Although nursery trends may come and go, there are a few classic nursery themes that remain timeless. If you’re looking for ideas, check out some of these inspiring nurseries we’ve collected for you to file away on your Pinterest boards.
Nature-Inspired Themes: Capture the beauty of the outdoors in your baby's nursery. Incorporating earthy colour palettes, woodland creatures, foliage, and textures like wood and stone. Plus, calming hues and shades create a peaceful atmosphere for baby and mum.
Minimalistic Design: A simple, streamlined nursery helps create a calming environment and is also easy to keep tidy.
Gender-Neutral Design: Create a gender-neutral nursery with colours like yellow, grey, and mint green, as well as decor that isn't tied to gender.Neutral Colour Palettes: Soft greys, whites, and muted pastels make for versatile nursery colour schemes that are serene and inviting. Also the perfect approach for a gender neutral nursery.
Vintage and Retro Styles: Pay homage to cool design eras of the past such as mid-century modern style using modernist inspired nursery furniture pieces such as the Ubabub Nifty Timber in Walnut or Birch, using bold patterned wall paper or a cool mix of modernist style wall art.
Boho Chic: The bohemian style can be a fun way to add lots of patterns, colours, and textures to your nursery. Try using a mix of cool bohemian-style rugs, macramé wall hangings, warm woods and textiles to create a cosy and eclectic vibe.
Dreamy and Whimsical: Get a bit whimsical in your nursery design with dreamy elements such as clouds, stars, hanging mobiles and using cool Nursery Canopies. Layering soft cool cushions in a corner can create the perfect book nook in your baby's nursery.
Animal Friends: No baby nursery is complete without cute critters! Animal-themed bedding, wall art, and decor make the room come to life. Like the cool animal wall heads pictured above.
Modern and Contemporary: Baby furniture and nurseries that feature clean lines, bold geometric patterns, and minimalist decor all come together for a modern look. We have plenty of modern & contemporary styled nursery furniture pieces to complement this vibe. Begin with one piece of baby furniture or decor item that you love - like a pendant light, nursery wall art or an incredible rug. Use this as your inspiration to begin your nursery look and feel.
