18 nursery decor ideas that will instantly whisk your kids to a fairytale wonderland! Save time and money today by using our secret hacks.
Decorating a baby’s nursery can be a whole lot of fun. This is especially true when you are a first-time parent, eagerly awaiting the birth of your baby.
As we all know, the nursery is your baby’s first home; for him/her to settle in well, nursery decor needs to be both functional and comfortable. Apart from that, the ideal nursery should also boast an inviting atmosphere that is full of wonder.
Here at We Redesign, we present a series of simple nursery decor ideas for all parents. Allow the following unique nursery décor ideas, examples, and tips to ease and guide your own decorating process. Classic pastels, unexpected neutrals, and modern interpretations ahead.
1. Crib Mobile
A charming mobile with felt owls, clouds or stars takes center stage here: as bright decoration piece of a crib, it’s sure to delight your baby for the first few months of his/her life.
2. Thematic Wall Decorations
Walls that are decorated with paintings create a fabulous atmosphere in the nursery.
You could request an interesting wall design for the nursery from a professional artist or design yourself, using special templates. Some options include (but are not limited to) flowers, cartoon characters and scenes from a children’s animated movie.
Another idea is to put simple stickers on the wall that are based on popular cartoon themes. The biggest advantage of this type of nursery decor is that it’s not permanent – should the child grow up and/or tire of the decor, these stickers can be easily removed or replaced any time.
3. Window Decals
Another spectacular view of the nursery decor is window painting. With the help of special paints or temporary applications, you can decorate the glass with thematic drawings for the kids.
Depending on your artistic abilities, you can depict a fairy tale or just draw some characters.
4. Toy Figurines
Toys are crucial to childhood growth and development: with the arrival of a child, it is inevitable that toys start appearing in the house.
Toy figurines (such as the Disney ones pictured above) can be placed on desks or on shelves, and make for a pleasant sight.
You can decorate the walls of the nursery with the help of charming birdhouses made of colored paper or cardboard.
6. A 2-In-1 Dollhouse
How about adding a huge shelf in the form of a dollhouse? Not only is this gorgeous dollhouse shelf practical, it will also undoubtedly win the heart of your little princess.
7. Starry, Starry Sky
You can decorate the ceiling of the nursery with the help of the luminous figures in the form of stars. Consider using simple phosphor stickers, special paint or halogen projectors mounted in the ceiling.
8. Balls And Balloons
Ordinary balls can be turned into fabulous balloons. To create unique nursery room décor elements, you will need acrylic paints, canvas threads, string bags, ribbons and of course balloons or small children’s balls.
Alternatively, simply buy a bag of these from your local toy store! And – while you’re at it – also consider getting these handy storage options.
9. A Game Of Shadows
Decorate the walls of the nurseries with the shadows of fairy-tale characters that can be painted with water-soluble paint or use special interior stickers.
You can decorate the walls of the nursery with bright letters made of fabric, felt, wood, cardboard or polystyrene. At first, this room decor will simply please and attract the attention of the baby. In the longer run, however, it serves a more meaningful purpose i.e. helping your child learn the alphabet.
11. Nursery Teepee
Even the most curious and active children need their downtime: this teepee serves as the perfect resting spot for your little ones whenever they’re tired. Instantaneously create a cozier environment by throwing in a couple of pillows and stuffed toys.
12. Florals Abloom
Decorate the walls of the nursery with artificial flowers and a decorative fence.
13. Chalkboard Wallpaper
Having chalkboard wallpaper in a nursery will allow your little ones to fully express his/her imagination. By drawing various paintings, you can almost daily change the interior of the nursery.
14. The Height Chart
One of the greatest joys of parenthood would arguably be watching your child grow up – and what better way to track their growth than using a height chart?
Not only are height meters incredibly useful, this type of nursery decor can also contribute color to the room.
15. Cute Pillows
Soft, fluffy, totally adorable: inject some cuteness into the nursery today by adding accessories no child can resist.
16. Children’s Furniture
Ordinary furniture is easy to turn into a nursery room décor element. All you have to do is to decorate it with bright stickers, paintings or decoupage.
You can also use soft pillows on chairs just as shown above (see point 15).
17. Beanbags And Puffy Chairs
Soft and comfortable, it’s not hard to see why beanbags and puffy chairs are loved by both adults and children.
Please the child with a soft puzzle mat: add several pillows and a beanbag of a cartoon character on top. Do you like this Snorlax bean seat in the picture above? We sure do!
18. Stuffed Toys In Every Corner
Stuffed toys can not only be beautiful, but also useful. Taking into account how to decorate a nursery, consider the option of creating decorative pillows-toys. They will be added inside the positive notes of the children.
You can also sew fun toys with pockets to store several small things. For younger children, you can place such organizers (for example, in the form of a funny caterpillar) on the wall near the bed, and for teenagers, near the computer table.
And the list of ideas goes on…
As you can see, if you try and connect creative thinking, then unique and interesting ideas for a nursery can be born. And viewing such photo collections, as a rule, becomes the starting point for creating creative decor in the rooms of our children.
