Your little prince or princess is about to be brought into the world.
Before your little munchkin gets home, make sure it has a comfortable place in which to grow. We all know a nursery needs a crib, an ultra-comfortable blanket, a nightlight, a teether or two, a two-way monitor, and a place for mom and dad to sit, but what about the decoration?
These nine inspirational ideas on how to decorate your baby’s bedroom will get you even more excited to welcome the newest member of your family home for the first time.
Imagine a place where animals roam free with no chance of harm. To graze, hunt, play and snooze during a midday nap.
Decorate your baby’s bedroom with decor inspired by wildlife on the African savanna. A leopard-print rug adorns the floor, and photos of baby lions, giraffes, hippos, and elephants dot the walls.
Stuffed animals stuff the crib, and pop up books line the bookshelf.
Perhaps your little one is the next Ferdinand Magellan or Christopher Columbus.
Trade a standard wallpaper for a world-map and get mobile with looking-glasses, compasses, globes, and other trinkets made for the explorer.
Add some nature and wildlife to the bookshelves and the play floor, and you’ll have an explorer in no time!
An artistic baby bedroom can come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Grab an armful of picture frames and fill them with your favorite pieces of art from around the world, or simply grab ten different buckets of paint and splash the room.
A chaotic elegance teaches your little one colors and creativity from an early age. Litter the room with art supplies so that when the little tyke is bigger, they can use the space to channel some art skills.
Set up an Aquarium
Not sure where to go with your baby’s room? Sometimes, deciding is the hardest part.
Start with a color you love and then go to your nearest shop and purchase many different whiteboards with all the colored markers you can find.
One day, it’s a learning space. The next day, it’s an art space. On the weekend, maybe you turn each whiteboard into a portal to a new dimension for your young one to explore.
Whiteboards are also magnetic, so pick up some magnets and begin the fun.
Grab a few Buzz Lightyear dolls and turn this crib into a rocket ship. A warm and dark color for the walls will set up your decorations perfectly.
Pick up a stencil of the Milky Way Galaxy and dot the room with painted and lit-up stars alike.
Fill the picture frames of photos from the Hubble telescope and Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon. Don’t forget all of the space adventure books.
Want to spice up the room and treat yourself in the meantime?
Grab a telescope and set it up next to the window for those late nights when the baby cries.
Cartoons for everyone
If your child will soon be like many children, cartoons will be important.
Go all out on the stuffed animals and litter the room with the best cartoon characters.
This room is themed specifically in animation, as everything from the walls and the rugs to the paint and covers are imaginary characters.
Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, SpongeBob, Mickey Mouse, and the rest of the gang will make this room fun for your newborn for years to come.
Just remember that a trip to Disneyland will be necessary in your not-so-distant future.
Into the forest
Channel your inner Bob Ross and let your imagination run wild on the wall. Get your local painter to paint a picture of a beautiful green forest and pick up some stencils of some bears, deer, trees, and other little critters to add to the adjacent wall.
The accented drapes are pine green, and tales of Goldilocks, Red Riding Hood, and Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood fill the bookshelves.
Add a wooden crib for good luck, and your baby’s forest room is ready!
Give your child’s room a serene and chill modern look with a white and black design.
A calming white crib sits next to an adjustable and automatic baby monitor, complete with a 4K TV screen and Bluetooth connection.
An underground refrigerator rises with a gasp as you enter the room during the middle of the night, revealing a temperature-optimized bottle of milk and nookie. The rotating bookshelf offers up the perfect bedtime story every night, ensuring there’s never the same story twice.
