Whimsical Woodland Nursery: Inspired by Nature
Nature is peaceful and calming. It’s only natural that you’d want to invite it into the nursery. With earth tones and sky-like patterns, nurseries inspired by nature let the little one’s be the heroes in their own dens.
The woodland motif is classic, gender neutral and – most importantly – absolutely adorable. Plus, 59% of moms with young children turn to woodland-themed nurseries to help expand their baby’s view of the world.
Create this look with our takeaway tips:
Wild and Whimsical
Surround your baby with plushies, outdoor-inspired blankets and bedding and wall décor featuring landscapes. Let pretty florals and friendly animals help lull your infant to sleep. Choose forest-infused wall decals that’ll serve as a focal point as well as complement the room. Pick wallpaper that blooms with florals and greenery for a serene environment.
Leaf it to Nature
Sprinkle a bit of the outdoors indoors. Choose textures that encourages stimulation and relaxation for your baby, who’s learning from their environment. Bring joy and curiosity to the nursery with baby toys made from natural materials like wood and introduce super-soft textures like organic cotton to mimic the soft wonder of the outdoors. Familiarize these textures through rugs, décor, apparel and more.
Foster baby’s imagination without compromising your style. Turn to the natural beauty in rocks, gems and geodes for bookends or nursery mobiles. This is a chic combo that incorporates strength and rustic elements to your lil’ one’s world.
Follow these tips and tricks to create the perfect environment for your newest addition. Before you know it, you’ll have the woodland-themed nursery of your dreams.
P.S. Don’t forget to enjoy the space and daydream a bit about the days (and nights!) soon to come.
