9. Beach & Shells 

Emulate the perfect beach house vibe with a beachy boy nursery.

While traditional beach-themed spaces are popular, I find that they can come across as a little dated or expected.

Still, I love the idea of a baby boy nursery with soft, sandy touches and a focus on shells and shell tones.

Shells are a necessity in this theme to keep the nursery looking modern and neutral. A vintage shell chandelier will add so much charm to the space.

Include a reading canopy for you and baby to curl up into together (just like a beach cabana!). 

Make sure to include soft shades of blue, cute sea creatures, and a touch of beach grass in your design.

10. Day Dreamscape 

While some love the tranquility of a night sky, others are quite partial to the daytime. Add a bit of dreamy wonder to your baby boy’s nursery with this day dreamscape theme. 

Emulate a bright, cloudy sky with this pastel cloud wallpaper; this mural is almost otherworldly; it’s so beautiful. I love the gorgeous pastel colors that blend together for a perfectly dreamy effect. 

Alternatively, you can go more neutral with ivory walls with additional fabric cloud wall stickers. These wall decals are hand-drawn and add a subtle yet effective design to a nursery. 

When designing this space, make sure you include an ultra-dreamy mobile, bright and varying light fixtures, and calm shades of cream and baby blue.
