1. Woodland Nursery
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:
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:
- Nautical themed crib sheets like boats, whales, etc.
- Nautical or coastal themed wall art
- Boat bookshelves
- Nautical wallpaper

- Pieces made out of driftwood or rope
