What better inspiration for your little one’s nursery than rhymes and songs? Read more to get your feet tapping, the creative juices flowing, and the nursery design project going.

Nursery design and nursery décor are subjects full of magical possibility. As you set out to design your little one’s nursery, let’s turn to the enchanting world of nursery rhymes and songs for inspiration. We use traditional favourites such as ‘Twinkle, Twinkle’ and little-known gems such as ‘Five Little Crayons Coloured A Scene’ to bring you practical ideas on everything from nursery furniture, crib design, nursery wall décor, decorating a nursery for a baby girl, and doing up the nursery for a baby boy. Without any delay, let’s put our idea caps on and get humming!

Early To Bed And Early To Rise

We are digging this nursery in pale coral shot through with accents of gold. Golden polka dots on the nursery wall and modern gold light fixtures are set off against the lighter shades of pink and coral. A hoop canopy is invitingly draped over the crib lulling your little princess into soft sleep.

Girls And Boys, Come Out To Play

One of the best ways to help your child be strong physically is to get them to play, beginning with tummy time when they are infants. This large spacious nursery allows plenty of floor space for all those rough and tumble games. The tepee is just waiting for your toddler to crawl into, adding the finishing touch to a soothing nursery room design.

Tiger, Tiger, Orange And Black

Our love for Mowgli and Bagheera of Jungle Book fame is never-ending. Give a new spin on the jungle theme for your child’s nursery room decor by going the Scandi way. Soft colours, minimal furnishings, a swing for your child to play on and a pared-back jungle theme make this room one you will always want to spend time in!

The Wheels of the Bus Go Round and Round

The world is round, the sun is round, the wheels on the bus are round, so why should your baby’s crib not be round? We love this round crib in ivory white with soft coral furnishings. The fact that it is on casters and can be moved around is an additional bonus.

A Wise Old Owl Lived In An Oak

Want you, child, to be wise like an owl? Read to them! This will give them a head start in their development and help you bond with them. As you work out their nursery design, make sure to build a bookcase or install bookshelves to house all those books that you will read to them.

The Red Bird Flower

Having a baby’s perspective, literally, is a great nursery décor idea. In this fabulous nursery, the designer has done just that and looked at the world from a baby’s viewpoint. What would otherwise be a cramped and boring space under a sloping ceiling is transformed into beautiful scenery, complete with a white tree. Your baby can now look up to leaves fluttering in the wind and singing red birds.

The Little Girl With A Curl

As you think of stylish décor for your baby’s nursery, don’t forget about the practical aspects of storage. Seasoned parents know how many belongings even a new-born has and how easily accessible storage becomes a criticality. This nursery design for a baby girl illustrates a clever way of storage. These box shelves can be converted into open storage and display cases or be used to house organisers.

Five Little Crayons Coloured A Scene

The parents and caregivers spend significant time in the nursery taking care of the baby, nursing them and playing with them. Nursery room décor needs to be decided with adults in mind as much as babies. Spots of bright colour, rich patterns and a comfortable armchair make this nursery inviting for both adults and babies.

Here Comes The Sun

With the fiery energy of the sun as your muse, turn your baby’s nursery into a vibrantly stylish space. Use cheerful colours like yellow and orange on the walls of the nursery and for the soft furnishings. The screen in natural colours that doubles up as a space to hang décor items acts as a soothing counterpoint.

 Oh! Little Bunny Rabbit

Looking to express your love for the baby through a DIY project? This bunny inspired nursery wall is easy enough for even novice DIYers. Use stencils to show a row bunny rabbits hopping across the wall or use decals instead. If you are feeling adventurous, nothing like going freehand with a paintbrush.

We Are The Planets

Exposing your child to vivid colours and having them to play with interactive toys is the perfect recipe to encourage a baby’s mental development. This brightly coloured space-themed nursery room design does exactly that. With such strong visual simulation and inspiration, your baby is sure to fast track their way to NASA and outer space.

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Our final inspiration comes from the classic nautical themed nursery rhyme. The room features wall art and décor pieces that are sea animal themed. Blue and white horizontal stripes of varying width can be found in the soft furnishings. Sofa and cushions in shades of blue complete the marine theme making this nursery ideal for a baby boy.
