The woodlands nursery theme is still a popular baby boy room idea among expecting moms. There are so many ideas you can run with while looking for woodland nursery decor, which makes preparing this type of nursery fun.

You can create a woodland nursery in 3 easy steps:

1. Choose Your Woodland Nursery Color Scheme

The woodland nursery theme usually consists of neutral grays and creams, with touches of blues and forest greens.

Try choosing a neutral wall paint color with your accent color of choice displayed in the decorative details.

Bring in nursery furniture with rustic touches, like a natural crib and dresser. Espresso and white colored furniture also looks nice in a woodland nursery.

2. Pick Your Focal Point

What’s the focal point of your baby boy woodland nursery?

You can paint one wall an accent color, use woodland themed wallpaper, or add woodland themed wall art above the crib.

3. Add in Woodland Nursery Decor Accents

This is where the fun begins!

Add bookshelves made out of birch accents, beautiful woodland crib sheets, decorative woodland baskets, woodland baby rockers and more.

Collect woodland art to decorate the walls, or even woodland themed name signs.

There are so many options to make your baby boy’s nursery theme one of a kind.

2. Space Nursery Theme

I’m loving the space nursery theme that has been majorly trending! You can add such eye catching details to this type of nursery, so it becomes a really unique nursery theme.

You can create a space themed nursery in 3 easy steps:

1. Choose Your Focal Wall (or Ceiling)

Most space themed nurseries are going to have a wall or ceiling dedicated to a magical mural of stars and constellations.

You can do this with easy to apply (and remove) star nursery wallpaper or you can paint the wall and then apply star decals.

Consider adding an eye catching wall art piece to complete the look.

2. Pick Out Your Color Scheme & Nursery Furniture

A space nursery’s color scheme tends to be black, grey, silver and whites. I think also a pop of color in its accents would look great in addition to these colors.

Choose nursery that has sleek, straight lines. Mid-century modern cribs and dressers would look great in a space themed baby room.

3. Find Your Boy Space Nursery Accent pieces

This is always my favorite part!

Think of star filled baby sheets and blankets, moon shaped pillows, beautiful space-themed nursery wall decor, star and moon mobiles and more.

You can even add a personalized touch with customized constellation art from the minute your baby was born.

3. Nautical Theme

The nautical theme is defintely a classic baby boy nursery theme, but it’s always trending with expectant moms.

Here are some ideas on how to prepare a nautical nursery for your baby boy:

Color Scheme

Usually a nautical nursery colors consist of navy and white. I think white nursery furniture looks great in a nautical nursery, but I’ve also seen rustic wood tone pieces that look great too.

Accents of gold, grey, or other shades of blue complete the look.

When you’re choosing your nautical nursery decor, consider the following:

Create a White and Black Buffalo Plaid Nursery

I’ve seen some awesome buffalo plaid nurseries that are decorated in black and white, rather than the traditional red and black. This looks really cool and it’s sort of a fun idea to use modern touches along with it.

One nursery that I love has black and white buffalo plaid wallpaper behind the crib, which I think looks amazing.

Add in sport elements in:

  • wall art

  • changing pad cover
  • sport equipment used as decorations
  • Baby blankets

How to Create a Nursery in a Master Bedroom (6 Steps)

My second baby has been sharing our bedroom for the last year. In fact we had his nursery in the master bedroom right from his first day home! There are many reasons why people decide to create a nursery in their bedroom, whether it be because parents want to room share for baby’s first year or perhaps there isn’t a spare bedroom for baby.

There are several ways to create a peaceful, beautiful nursery in your bedroom, regardless of the reason you choose to do so or even how small or big of a space you have.

1. Pick a Wall

Choose a wall in your bedroom that can be for the baby. If you have to move furniture around to make that happen, I still recommend dedicating an entire wall to do so.

I know it’s not alway possible when putting together a nursery in a master bedroom, so you can also choose a corner or half a wall space, if you’re short on room!

2. Choose Space Saving Nursery Furniture

This is the key! When you don’t have an entire room for a nursery, you need to organize the nursery with space saving nursery furniture.

One item I think it super helpful is a crib that has an attached changing station with drawers like this one. You can also go the mini crib route (which is super trendy right now).

Also, you don’t necessarily need a changing table if you don’t have room for one.

For my daughter, I used hers for every single diaper change, but since my son is in our room we have just been changing him on a towel on our bed or the floor. Both ways have worked great for us, it’s just a matter of getting into a routine and habit.

I also highly recommend a rolling utility cart. You can stash it anywhere in the room to save space and roll it out when you need it. I use mine to hold diapers, diaper rash creams, baby bibs and more.

I’ve also seen people use this as a breastfeeding station!

3. Organize Like a (Mom) Boss

While the rolling utility cart is a must-have, there are some other nursery organization necessities if you’re short on space.

I love these over-the-door organization racks. I use them everywhere – the pantry, the laundry room, and in our room to store items for my son since his nursery is in our master bedroom.

Baby closet organization

You can also find organizers that hang on the outside side of baby’s crib (where baby can’t reach). This is great for diapers, wipes, creams, etc.

Diaper caddy organizers also come in handy when you’re working with a nursery in parent’s room. You can store them right under a crib or even under your own bed.

4. Storing Baby Clothes with Nursery in Parent’s Room

You can store baby’s clothes in the drawers if you go with the crib/changing station combination. You can also clear some room out of your own dresser to fold and organize baby clothes. I have a night stand with three drawers that worked perfectly to store my son’s clothes. I used the rolling method to organize and store his onesies, pants, etc and utilize drawer dividers to make sure everything fit.

5. Nursery in Master Bedroom? Still Decorate!

Be sure to still decorate baby’s nursery! Start with a focal point over the crib, like a personalized name sign or wall art. If you choose a theme, still pick out cute crib sheets. You can utilize floating shelves to save space and add baby books, toys, and pictures.

6. Floating Shelves to Use Vertical Space for Storage

Using floating shelves is a great way to utilize the vertical space in your bedroom. Use shelves like these to display and store books, baby toys, and special keepsake items! The photo above actually uses picture ledges to hold books, which is such a genius idea!
