When should you start the nursery decorating? Around 18-20 weeks is when I started getting my energy back and excited about preparing for a newborn. This gives you time to get ready and stretch out the expenditures before the baby comes. Pick your nursery theme around this time, and order a crib.
But, how do you choose a nursery theme? Recent baby rooms have lost the bright, childish color in modern trends, and focus on cool, neutral and monochromatic colors. But don’t worry, these trending baby rooms are still playful and fun! This actually helps in keeping it simpler with girl and boy nursery themes… Many of the nursery room decor I’m loving can be for all kinds of babies.
Think cute illustrations of safari animals, subdued and neutral tones, exposed wood accents. Baby versions of these creatures make for a great baby room idea because they instantly make the room fuzzy and inviting. If you want something more colorful, try a woodland-themed nursery with this quilt for inspiration.
Thinkwoven and loomed blankets with sunset colors, furniture with exposed wood details or even branches, pictures of drawn desert animals. Let’s avoid skulls and teepees, please. I adore tassels and they definitely fit this baby room idea.
Think ample natural light, neutral and muted colors, knitted or woven wall hangings and rugs. This is my favorite trend. Hygge style is one that will fit this theme. This is a nursery that you could use for multiple children and feels very loving and comfy.

Think geometric shelves, sophisticated vibes, mobiles with circles. This is a very modern and trendy choice that moves away from childish, but for some, the orderly feel is a soothing space for your baby.
If you’re looking to create a statement, go with a feature or accent wall. Big backdrops demand center attention; keep this the focus and don’t go too big with other decorative details. You can use decals, dimensional walls and large framed art sets.
