Top Ten Tuesday: Nursery Themes

Standard

After we found out we were pregnant, we had three different themes for nursery decor in mind. Regardless of if it was a boy or a girl, we were going to keep with the same theme(s). Our first option was Doctor Who because we are both huge fans of the series. After realizing that may be a little more elaborate & expensive than we wanted, we went to our other two ideas – outer space & dinosaurs. Not able to choose between the two, we went with a ‘Dinosaurs in Space’ theme and it turned out wonderfully! Although we only considered a few themes for O, there are others that I’ve found online or saw in other moms’ nursery’s that I really liked. Below is my Top Ten List of Nursery Themes for boys and/or girls. Hopefully something in my list will spark inspiration for your little’s nursery!

First, I wanted to share O’s nursery with you!

  1. Dinosaurs. This is a rather popular theme for many little boys’ nurseries. It’s also completely fine to do this theme for a little girl – dinosaurs are for everyone!
  2. Jungle. The zoo/jungle theme is pretty popular. We recently found out our little boy loves giraffes!
  3. Princess. This can be girly, but it can also be taken down a notch so it’s not so ‘frilly’.
  4. Outer Space. This is a fun theme for a boy or girl & it can be as elaborate or simple as you wish! So many ideas!
  5. Shabby Chic. This is more for a girl’s nursery, but it can be as girly or not as you want!
  6. Bears. Teddy bears, Paddington Bear, brown bears, black bears, polar bears, Chicago Bears! The ideas are endless when it comes to bears!
  7. Airplanes. This is a fun theme, especially for a little boy. If you have someone in the family who is a pilot, this could really be a wonderful theme for a nursery!
  8. Polka Dot orΒ Stripes. This is a simpler theme, but it can be as decorative as you wish. I really love the polka dot or stripes theme for either a baby boy or baby girl nursery. So many options!
  9. ABC’s. The ABC’s theme is a classic. I have seen so many wonderfully decorated nurseries with the alphabet incorporated into them – all were amazing! This theme can also grow with baby – it’s perfect for a toddler’s room too!
  10. Library/Literary. Always a favorite of mine. We have a mini library in O’s nursery now, but will have to expand soon because he has A LOT of books! I love these shelves – such a neat idea to really make your little’s nursery into a library.
