Choosing A Baby Nursery Themed Room


Are you at that wonderful time of life - and are ready to have a baby? Well, if you are about to give birth...first of all, congratulations and get ready for the best time of your life...secondly, and back to topic, you may be wondering how to decorate your new baby's nursery.

Yankee Doodle Dandy Americana Themed Crib Bedding

The ideas for a baby nursery decor are endless (in my mind, anyway :-). They are an open blank slate - the nursery, I mean...

So, most times baby nurseries reflect the parents tastes and maybe even what they wish their baby to be or be like in the future.

Perhaps you would like your baby girl to be a ballerina, a little lady or maybe you dream of your baby son becoming a football player.

This may become the basis for your theme. Themes can also come from other places like particular animal themes, zoo animal themes, flower themes, insect (butterflies, dragonflies, bumble bees) themes, modern themes, retro themes, classical themes, and more.

If this is you, then one of the ways to decorate a baby nursery is to decide on a theme.

Once you have decided on a theme, the rest of the baby nursery decor can easily fall into place.

If you like the idea of a themed nursery, you should strongly consider choosing crib bedding with your chosen theme. This is probably the way to get the biggest bang for your buck - you get a lot of theme, and you need bedding anyway, right. Once the themed crib bedding is chosen, the rest of the room can build around the bedding - including paint colors, wall are decorations and window coverings.

For example, are you a proud American? Then, maybe a Yankee Doodle Dandy themed baby nursery crib set would work for you. As shown above, the blue and red stars and stripes theme would be perfect for a little boy. Painting the walls red also makes a stunning statement.

Choose accessories that are truly American - you might want to find some striped or stars fabric for the window coverings. How about hanging an American flag on the wall. Anything American themed will work in this room.

A very popular theme for baby nurseries is the cowboy theme. Giddy Up Cowboy!

I have to admit that even though I have never lived on a ranch, I do love the Cowboy themed nursery. This theme is just so whimsical and has an air of fantasy, that it is very appealing. 



Wild West Cowboy Themed Crib Bedding Set


Wild West Cowboy 9 pc Crib Bedding set has all that your little bundle of joy will need. Let the little one in your home settle down to sleep in this incredible nursery set. This western themed baby boy crib bedding set combines JoJo exclusive cowboy print, cow print, red bandanna print, plaid, denim, and micro suede in a patchwork construction. The detailed embroidered horseshoes and sheriff stars finish the look perfectly. This collection uses the stylish colors of Red, Chocolate Brown, Camel, Blue and Gold. The design uses 100% cotton fabrics combined with micro suede fabrics that are machine washable for easy care. This wonderful set will fit all cribs and toddler beds. Your Crib Set Includes: Crib Comforter Crib Bumper Fitted Sheet Crib Skirt (Dust Ruffle) Diaper Stacker Toy Bag Decorative Pillow 2 Window Valances

This absolutely adorable patchwork cowboy themed crib bedding set would be the starting point for a fabulously fun and whimsical cowboy themed baby nursery.

If you choose this theme, and start with the cowboy themed bedding set, all you will need to do is add some accessories with horse themes, horseshoe themes, leather chaps, wooden furniture and of course, you must have a small wooden rocking horse (for practice)!

Before we go further, let's not forget our baby girls, our little Princess'.

Our little Princess' - what a great theme for a baby girl's nursery!

Just think all things Princess - fairy magic wands, castles, unicorns, golden carriages and of course, think Cinderella - one of the most famous Princess' ever.

If you choose this Princess themed bedding, feel free to go all out pink! Paint the walls a lighter pink than the bedding. Add some painted golden stars to the wall or hang a lot of tulle fabric over the crib and on the windows.

Just remember, Princess says frilly, fluffy, glitzy and mostly pink!

In this princess themed nursery, a pink feminine chandelier is a must!

If you are not sure whether you are having a boy or girl, or you just would like a more neutral theme, how about a Circus theme?

Boys or girls - either will love this fun and whimsical circus theme. The color choices for wall color are almost endless.

So, if you are one of those parents who are having trouble deciding how to decorate your baby nursery, then consider a theme for your nursery. And the easiest way to start on a theme is to introduce a themed crib bedding set.

Once you have chosen a theme and the corresponding crib bedding, the rest of the room choices can be made fairly easily - and maybe even without an Interior Decorator!
