Five Fun and Unique Nursery Décor Ideas

September 17, 2012

Whether it was previously an office or a guest room, you’ve probably been brainstorming ways to turn that spare room in your home into the perfect spot for your new baby. Check out our ideas for a fun and unique nursery that will being out your creative side.

  1. Add an artistic flair! As your infant turns into a baby, and then a toddler, and his fine motor skills develop, you can encourage his artistic side by turning his room into a bit of a blank canvas! Chalkboard paint, applied in sections on the wall, can create a permanent space for him to doodle, smudge, and zigzag. And a beautiful mural can be painted or even stenciled before he’s born to provide a little early inspiration.
  1. Go literary! Put together a book-themed nursery. You can decorate with framed illustrations, stuffed animals, and wall stencils from your favorite children’s book authors such as Dr. Seuss and Maurice Sendak.
  1. Take a walk on the wild side. A jungle theme will introduce your child to loads of fun and adorable animals such as tigers, monkeys, and exotic birds. From stuffed animals to themed bedding and wall art that looks like rainforest trees, you can create an immersive and stimulating environment for your little one.
  1. Or journey to the ocean floor! If the jungle is not your thing, a calming blue room filled with pictures and toys of marine life might work for you. Or you might even delve into a nautical theme, with preppy, lightweight linens, grosgrain trim, and artwork incorporating boats, anchors, and seashells.
  1. Give it a modern vibe. For a look that will grow with your child and look current for years, choose modern furniture with clean lines and simple silhouettes. Modular furniture can accommodate the evolving stages of your child’s life, and can be incorporated into the rest of your home as your child’s needs change.

Have fun with your nursery! It’s a great opportunity to show your creative, goofy side and to break from the design that dominates the rest of your home. The baby’s room is a chance to stimulate your child and allow his changing interests to flourish!
