The excitement of welcoming a new baby into the family is indescribable. It’s a time of joy and happiness as everyone prepares for the new arrival. At the same time, there’s a lot to do in preparation, such as getting the nursery ready. 

When choosing a nursery theme, you can let your creative juices flow. While some nursery themes are gender-specific, such as blue for boys and pink for girls, there are also many gender-neutral themes to choose from.  

Whether you’re waiting to find out the gender of your child, or you prefer a neutral approach to decor, here are a few ideas to get you started. 

Sunshine safari 

A safari themed nursery is perfect for any baby who loves adventure and animals. With a variety of wall decorations, bedding, and toy options available, you can create a truly unique space for your little one. Whether you want to go for a realistic look with animal prints and jungle scenes or prefer a more whimsical design with cartoon animals, there are plenty of ways to incorporate a safari theme into your nursery. 

Woodland wonderland 

A woodland theme nursery is a perfect way to introduce your child to the wonders of nature. From the moment that they are born, they will be surrounded by trees, plants, and animals. The natural setting will also help to provide a calm and soothing environment for your child to relax and fall asleep easily. 

Nautical navigator 

Does your family enjoy time by the sea? If you’re looking to give your child’s nursery a nautical theme, there are plenty of things you can do to get it done. For example, you can paint the walls blue and add some white trim. Incorporate marine-inspired accessories such as anchors, lifesavers, and seashells. Don’t forget to add in some fun nautical-themed bedding!  

Boho baby 

A boho baby nursery can be decorated with natural materials, such as wood, wicker, and cotton, and feature earthy tones and soft textures. You can add a touch of boho style to your baby’s nursery by choosing natural materials and earthy tones, incorporating plenty of soft textures and hanging dreamcatchers or other bohemian-inspired decorations. 

Tiny traveller

Decorate your little one’s nursery with travel-themed items. Share your wanderlust with your newborn by hanging aeroplanes from the ceiling, placing a train on the cabinet, and buying a world map for the wall. You can even start collecting trinkets from your adventures to add to the room.
