From Bump to Baby: Nursery Décor Inspiration and Tips
Prepare for the arrival of your new bundle of joy with their very own personalised nursery room. Although your little one might not notice your effort just yet, the baby’s bedroom is just as much your room as it is theirs (at least for the first few years!). Make their nursery a comforting and welcoming space for all with our top personalised nursery décor ideas.
1. Decide on a Theme
Neutral tones are right on trend and are perfect for any little one, regardless of gender. Choose shades of beige or grey for a beautiful baby bedroom that can be added to with your chosen theme. From stars and clouds to safari, woodland and animal themes, choose a nursery theme that not only your little one will enjoy, but will also bring joy to you – after all, you’ll be spending a lot of time in there! One of our favourite themes is to bring nature into their nursery décor. From baby animals and animal print to plants and greenery, a nature-inspired nursery creates a calm and soothing environment for both parents and baby. This beautiful combination of soft green cacti and llamas, plus the addition of colourful pompoms, creates a relaxing, yet playful atmosphere – and looks stunning as a consistent theme throughout the nursery.
2. Provide Comfort with Soft Furnishings
Make the room comfortable for both you and baby with plush soft furnishings that match your nursery décor. From fluffy rugs and throws to comfy cushions and pillows, look for suitable soft furnishings that complement the colour scheme and baby bedroom theme. If you’re struggling to find cushions that match, why not add a personal touch with your own customised Photo Cushion? Create your own personalised cushion with your first photo as a family or a favourite shot of your newborn for an adorable memory - perfect for comparing how much your little one is growing and developing as each week goes by!
For the ultimate personalised nursery décor and to maintain your chosen theme, you can design your own typography cushion personalised with your little one’s name, date of birth, meaningful quotes or lyrics, for a stylish addition to the nursery. Plus, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the abundance of Clipart options to add to your personalised Photo Cushion – we are sure you’ll find something that will be perfectly suited to your nursery décor theme and style.
3. Add Decorative Storage Shelves
Shelves and storage are a must-have for any nursery or baby bedroom. Drawers are perfect for hiding away the essentials, like nappies and changing items, but shelving also makes a great addition for displaying cute ornaments, a collection of colour-coordinating muslin cloths, stuffed animals, family photos, and the ever-important baby monitor too. You can even choose to display their first pair of baby shoes, ready and waiting for those first steps, to favourite toys that are within an easy reach.
Add a pop of colour to the room with your own library of nursery books, with the covers displayed outward for easy choosing. For a personal touch, create your own collection of photo books to display on your nursery bookcase, from documenting your baby’s first year in a CEWE PHOTOBOOK to your own personalised baby board books with a Kids CEWE PHOTOBOOK. With full creative control of your photo book cover designs, you can complement and create consistency with your chosen nursery theme for a unique addition to your personalised nursery décor.
Top tip: Install the nursery shelving low down so that your little one will be able to pick their book for themselves when they’re older!
4. Get Creative with Nursery Wall Art Ideas
From art prints of baby animals to a selection of your own family photos, adding wall art can transform your nursery room in an instant. Remember to keep to your chosen colour scheme and nursery theme when designing your own wall art, such as adding plant and animal art prints if you’ve gone for a nature-inspired, woodland nursery. If you wish to print your own special memories of when your bundle of joy first arrived, choose to print in black and white for an easy and consistent way to match your nursery décor. We love the addition of calligraphy and typography wall art too – create your own personalised Wall Art with your baby’s name or fun quotes for a unique yet stylish addition to your personalised nursery décor.
Top tip: Display your Framed Prints on floating shelves for an easy way to decorate your nursery walls, without the damage.
