You have a little one on the way, and you’re trying to figure out the perfect nursery theme. You want something that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also inviting for your child and includes non-toxic decor.
To help get you thinking, we’ve rounded up five nursery themes that bring the outdoors in that are easy to incorporate non-toxic elements into.
Botanical OasisWhat better way to design a natural nursery than bringing the outdoors in! Create an earthy oasis for your little one by mixing foliage prints, natural textures such as linen and natural wood furniture. To really bring the room to life, try some non-toxic plants so your child will feel like they are living in an outdoor sanctuary.
A jungle theme is another way to incorporate natural elements and an “outdoorsy” feel to your baby’s space. Add some wood and plant decor to make your baby feel like every day is a day in the jungle. Find some wild furry friends for your baby that you can place around the room. Be sure to try to find organic options, like this cute little elephant from Bears for Humanity, and remember, never put the toys in the crib with baby to sleep.
Walk on the Wild Side
A sunshine-filled nursery is a great option for any little one, but this is an especially good if you are trying to find a “gender-neutral” theme and color palette. Fill the nursery with yellow and other bright colors, sunny pictures and organic linen elements. If you are going to hang curtains, try a lightweight organic option to really let the natural light shine through.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to have what’s bound to be a hectic beach vacation with your child. Bring the beach to the nursery! Putting up natural wood planks will easily transform the space into a beach escape. Add a colorful rug, some cordless (for safety) bamboo blinds and your baby (and you) will be on vacation every day.
Take a Vacation
It’s important from a young age to instill the importance of conserving our national parks, so transform the nursery into one. Create your own non-toxic National Park wall art by upcycling maps or images from the parks, make a meaningful quilt out of reusable materials such as old t-shirts. Fill the space with warm earth tones including animal and pine tree decor. Also be sure to check out this adorable campfire nightlight. Adventure awaits your little one!
