How to Design a Darling Themed Nursery

If you’re in the process of designing a nursery for your little one, why not go with a themed space? A themed room is perfect for a child and ensures that a space appears well-coordinated, too. 

That said, tracking down tons of different nursery essentials and hoping that they all correspond with your theme of choice can be a bit overwhelming, so we’ve done the hard work for you and have recently launched themed bundles of nursery essentials! Each bundle includes a mobile, mobile arm, quilt, and sheet set—you can choose from a mini or full size depending on the crib your child is using. 

Not sure how to decide what to keep top of mind when designing a themed nursery? We’re here to help!

Consider your location. In interior design, the best themes pay a subtle nod to a home’s location. For example, maybe you live in a region where riding horses is a common pastime, or perhaps your home is near the water and you crave something with a coastal touch. With that said, if you love a particular theme that doesn’t at all reflect your family’s location or interests, that’s more than ok! Themed spaces are simply meant to be fun, after all—most of us will never travel to outer space but can still appreciate a cute rocketship motif!

Think about colors associated with a theme. Maybe you already have a general sense of the colors that you’d like to use in your child’s nursery. In this case, you’ll want to select a theme that will mesh nicely with those hues. For example, our Swan Lake kit would look beautiful alongside soft pinks and blues. If you’re itching to decorate with reds and oranges, consider purchasing our Starship or Safari kit.

Look at what pieces you have already. Maybe you’ve inherited tons of baby gear from a relative or have saved items from an older child’s nursery. See if any of these pieces correspond to any of our themed kits before going in and reinventing the wheel. For example, maybe you already own tons of cute zoo-themed pieces and can style them alongside our Safari kit to complete your little one’s setup.

Embrace themes in moderation. For one, going overboard with a particular theme can simply make a room appear too busy, or worse, cheesy. It’s best to embrace a theme thoughtfully by including some themed accents in a space and keeping other components of a room neutral. For example, if you opt for themed bedding, you may wish to source a more neutral accent chair or glider. Additionally, by not going all in with a theme, you can ensure that your child’s space will grow with them over time. Keeping things more simple will allow you to make simple tweaks over the years as your little one begins to develop his or her own preferences.
