When you are expecting a child you may feel like you want to decorate the nursery before the baby comes. After all, you probably have more time to do so before the baby comes and this can be a fun way to pass the time.
Babies are gifts to expecting parents and it’s super fun to set up amazing baby nursery rooms before the lil’ one comes out. Some fun border and baby themed rooms include anything related to animals such as the zoo, under the sea or farm animals.
Pair the border of the room with accessories that match the colour and theme you have selected. You may find it is a lot easier to find accessories that go with a certain famous character, such as the Cars series or Winnie the Pooh. But if you don’t want to make it themed to a character, you can just stick to a colour palette and decorate as you go. We gathered lots of ideas for you to see and get inspiration from!
Don’t know what you’re having? That’s great – what a wonderful surprise – and bugger the blue and the pinks – neutral can still be beautiful for a nursery. Having a nursery that has a neutral colour could also save you from re-painting costs in the future once your baby should outgrow the nursery. Here are some ideas!

“They feel so 90’s to me! I really think children can be stimulated by all sorts of colours and patterns, whether it’s themed or not,” model Coco Rocha said about the nursery of her firstborn.
When it came to the design, Rocha was adamant that the nursery might not project a “theme” but feel more organic and sophisticated than traditional children’s spaces. “I didn’t want a theme, like ‘zoo’ or ‘space,’” the model quipped.
Babies are angels here on earth, so we might as well give our little bubs a nice place to sleep.
