View Full Version : Nursery Themes
Just wondering how you did up your nursery?
When I was pregnant with my daughter I did Whinnie the Pooh.
I had Whinnie the Pooh removable stickers around the room, clock and mat and a few ornaments.
I painted an old cupboard white, added gold hinges and door knobs and put Whinnie the Pooh stickers on it too.
I had a white wire cot in her room (that was passed down to us by DP mum) with pink bumper and quilt cover.
The bassinet had a light green cover with teddies on it.
I have just finished my DD bedroom. Have put fairies in there now... looks very cute.
I am now having a boy. :smiliedance: Am a little lost as to what theme would look cute. Am thinking of Animals.
Did you have a theme in your nursery?
i love butterflies and out next baby if its a girl i will be doing a butterfly theme.
With no.1 we did Humphries corner. it is very cute!!
Now his room his cars & trucks. We have a bright blue feature wall with bright red around the window & door. the other walls are pale blue. it looks cute.
i got some cars and truck stickers for his walls & cupboard.
Our nursery is baby Disney characters.
I made the larger ones when i was pg with DD, out of felt.
She loved it. (now made Disney Princesses for her big girl's room.. She wanted her room to be Disney Princess theme and she loves it).
We put DS into the same nursery, and he just LOVES the baby disney characters too.
Here's a thought though... bright colours are good for stimulation, but just remember to keep the side baby will be facing less vibrant. You will probably find the baby will be over stimulated by the decoration colour and won't be able to tune out and go to sleep. :thumbsup:
We did a butterfly theme for my DD's room. Its so pretty! Over the past 12 months or so Ive done some really pretty paintings for her walls using mixed media (beading and glitter as well) and pretty pinks, purples and silver. Her bedroom is really gorgeous and unique looking! :yes: She's now in a big bed and so all her new bedroom furniture is white and it looks great with her existing decorations and paintings.
I didnt do most of the decorating until after she was born because we didnt know what we were having.
I havent decided what to do with our new baby's nursery yet. We didnt find out the sex again this time too.
Thanks for replies:
OceBel - Butterflies sounds nice. I am going to get some for my DD room as well, just to add a little extra touch to fairies (well that's my excuse anyway :) )
PoshBecks - Sounds very cute! I like adding stickers to cupboards and walls too. Adds an extra little touch.
Lut - I originally chose princess theme rather than fairies but when I went to buy some princess stuff my DD said "no I want fairies".... she loves her room
Thanks for the advise... I like bright colours but wasn't sure if it would be too much but making part of the room a little less vibrant shouldn't be hard :thumbsup:
That sounds REALLY nice Briannabear!
Good luck with your new nursery. I'm sure it will look fantastic.
I went to Spotlight and looked at the panels available for boys. Went for the animal theme....verty cute.
Bought a number of the panels and there were 2 types of material with the same animals on it.
We made the following with the material:
- pictures on the wall ( cut out the big pictures of the animals from the panel and then framed them using waffle material).
-washing clothes basket cover
- quilt covers
We then painted 2 sets of old drawers in (alternated) dark blue then light blue. We have everything else in the room related to baby animals.
For inspiration i reccommend going to look at spotlights panels for babies.

I didn't know what i was having, so i chose a fishy theme. Very unisex.
I always dreamed of having my nursery painted in the theme of my favourite poem ('The Road Not Taken' by Robert Frost) with autumn colours and a mural on the wall showing an overgrown path leading up through some trees. I'd have lines from the poem here & there on the walls.
Nice & calming for a baby & interesting for an older child.
Alas! We are still renting, so there it remains - a dream!

My darling sons room is sesame street i got wall stickers and all his furniture is from sunbury it looks lovely. Ill cry when he grows out of it dont know who loves sesame street more me or him:laughing:
as we don't know what we are having yet, we are decorating the nursery in a jungle animals theme... very cute... i just got a jungle animals quilt, sheets and a fleecy blanket, all matching, from best and les for under $40... the main colours are lime green and an aqua sort of blue...
I have painted my nursery pastel pink and have a white cot, chest of drawers and bookshelf. Im also planning to get some curtains made in pink and white gingham or maybe little spots. I also bought a handmade patchwork cot quilt from a lady who makes them in the US on Ebay. It has been made out of vintage fabric and chenille - its absolutely stunning!!! Im really into the Shabby Chic style of decorating. If I was decorating a boys nursery I would have gone for a red, white and blue theme. Ive seen a set-up in a shop and it was really cute for little boys. It had white furniture and used red and blue accents. Treehouse have a fantastic range for boys, girls or unisex,and although they are a bit expensive, the website is worth a look for really cute ideas.
I have kept the nursery decorated the same for both boys, we didnt know what we were having so we painted the bottom half of the walls a lavender/pale blue and the top half a pastel lime and where the 2 colours join i found the cutest bugs theme border from babies galore and that started the bugs obsession...(ladybirds etc)
We have a dragonfly theme. but it's subtle (I think)
There's 2 very very well done close up photos of actual dragonflies on the wall, then I bought some nylon dragonflies from ebay (like stocking butterflies) and put them places, like one on the wall, some on the curtain, one on the nappy stacker, one on the light.
The nappy stacked and doona have dragonflies on them, and then Chris bought a bug lamp from Ikea :D
Looks good! :)
DD's nursery is jungle theme. We went subtle, used all wooden furniture (Boori Collection) and then got a matching set and accessories from Babies Galore. It's pale blue and green, very unisex, would suit a boy too (even though we knew we were having a girl we want to use the nursery for all babies). We have matching shhets, blankets and the quilt cover (which draped over the chair in her room, not in her cot), nappy stacker, mobile, lamp, photo frame, hook (for the nappy stacker), and we even have matching basket covers. We have a matching border but until we move (about 8 weeks) it's stored away. I wasn't putting it up when renting. I want to paint the bottom half a pale green and the top half of the wall cream. We have a tall skinny (Boori) bookshelf in one corner, that is full of stuffed animals (mainly jungle).
My sister has a friend who paints using jungle animals so my sis got an original painted for DD and said she will for every baby we have. Something they can keep forever, very special.
I decided against making a gender specific nursery because they grow out of them so quick and within a couple of years are getting a little girls/boys room so we figured we'd do the gender specific rooms then and let them decide the theme! Also we spent a fortune on the nursery, we couldn't afford to do that with each baby, especially when we want them close!
i just wanted to know where can i get removable stickers from?
I m in the process of decorating a room for my little one.
thanks in advance
I have/will be going for a fairy theme with white and pastel's for my little girl. She has a white cot with a white change table and a tallboy which is white as well. All made with a vintage touch to it.
She has star and fairy manchester in a soft pink pastel as well as a touch of orange.
Will look lovely, I'm hoping.
I didn't know what we were having and I am obsessed with Giraffes, DD room centred around the cot quit which is bright green, yellow and orange with giraffes everywhere.
My baby's room is farm animals theme (Barnyard from kidsline). With the matching hamper, photo frame, lamp, border, stickers, quilt, fitted sheets, blanket, cushions and wall hangers. And i found this is great for both boys and girls.
Both my kids just have rooms.. i am terrible at decorating and terrible at keeping their rooms clean...My DD originally had a pink theme i guess.. just very girly but turns out that her fav colour is Blue and she likes dinosaurs....... so now her room has white walls and furniture with all pink stuff and a blue doona cover with dinos.. look pretty odd but eveyone knows thats what she loves..
DS's room is just a big mess, his rom was the junk room and it kinda stayed that way. we only have a 3 bed room house..it is too small... or maybe we just have too much S***.
I have been trying to clean the rooms out and sell the stuff on ebay but the job is just too big its overwhelming..
