The arrival of a new member of the family is always a reason for joy. That's why, in the previous months, the parents start thinking very carefully about the decoration of the room that will become the nursery. Nowadays there are a great number of shops and online stores where you can buy furniture for babies, so you'll probably find what you need for the style you have in mind without too much trouble. But as well as that, there's a whole world of decorative elements, such as wallpaper, vinyl stickers, throws, cushions, curtains, framed pictures and other objects that will help you complement the chosen theme and turn the baby's room into a magical place.
In fact, if you chose traditional style furniture, you can always use those extra elements to make the theme. This way you'll save money, because the furniture will be useful long after the baby themed decor has become obsolete and you'll only need to change the decorative elements to update it.
Some original ideas for your baby's nursery theme
Nautical-themed bedrooms are perfect for seaside flats or holiday homes. Therefore, if you really like the sea a lot, this theme is sure to attract you. This is an extremely elegant style, where the main colours are various shades of blue combined with the purest white. A perfect match to which you can add accessories in darker or brighter colours to cheer up the space, such as wheels, ships, oars, etc.
Those parents who are looking for a particular theme to decorate their baby's room may be interested in a Batman-inspired theme. This is a style that will grow with the child and last for some years, since it's also perfect not just for babies, but also for older children's rooms. You can paint the walls in a soft gray, use chevron textiles in white and mustard to give it a more modern look, and maybe even make some elements yourself, like cushions with the Batman logo, the pictures or the lamps.
The main element of this style is wallpaper. Wallpaper is back in fashion, because it's an easy way to completely change a space and give it a more cheerful look. For this reason there is a great variety of designs in this style, with trees and owls. To complete the theme you can set up a bird house, quilts and bedsheets with nature motifs, some owl cushions, etc.
Dinosaur decoration is another theme ideal for a nursery because, like other styles, it can be maintained for a long time. All you need is to cover the walls with large murals of these funny creatures. Regarding furniture, one of the best options you can choose is to paint it white which, as well as going nicely with the dinosaur colour range, it'll set off the whole decor of the room.
Even before our little girl is born, we have already decided she'll be a princess and we want her room to be a wonderful, magical place. There are countless furniture ranges and decorative elements that go with this theme. The furniture tends to be white, combined with pastel colours -mainly pink- for the walls or wallpaper, and other accessories from the same colour palette. Choose classic furniture in a royal-ish style, with armchairs and wardrobes in Disney style and cribs with a canopy. The options are endless.
This is a very up-to-date decoration, with a modern, colourful look. There are many textiles and decorative elements on the market that follow this style, including lamps and pictures for the walls. You can choose the furniture in any colour you want but because this is a highly colourful theme, we recommend white for the greatest contrast. The best thing about this style is that all children love superheroes, so when they grow up, you'll only need to change the crib for a bigger bed and the odd accessory, thus making your investment last longer.
