Welcoming a new addition to the family is an exciting time filled with joy and anticipation. If you're a dog lover, why not bring some of that puppy love into your baby boy's nursery? Designing a cute dog-themed nursery is a creative way to infuse warmth, playfulness, and a dash of canine charm into the space. Get ready to embark on a tail-wagging adventure as we explore ideas for your dog-themed baby boy nursery!

Color Palette

To create a harmonious and soothing environment, start by selecting a color palette that complements your dog-themed nursery. Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin Moore are great brands to use. Soft shades of blue, mint green, and gray work well as base colors (or anything neutral, that way you can have more freedom with the furniture and decor of your choice). Consider adding pops of color with accents like dog-themed wallpaper, dog prints, or colorful paw prints scattered across the walls. We found great wallpaper and fabric ideas on Spoonflower. Check out this cute Bernese Mountain Dog fabric!

Delightful Decor

Inject your baby boy's nursery with a playful and dog-centric atmosphere through whimsical decorations. Hang a collection of doggy silhouettes or paw print wall decals on the walls. Choose bedding or accent pillows (Check out this Yellow Lab by L. L. Bean) with adorable puppy patterns or paw prints. For a touch of nostalgia, display vintage dog-themed posters or framed dog portraits. Adding stuffed animals or plush dog toys as decorative elements can also create an inviting and fun ambiance. A great brand for cute dog stuffed animals is Jellycat. In fact, right here on our website, we have a few cute dogs for you to check out! Click here.

Packed with Puppies

Incorporate dogs of all shapes and sizes into your nursery design. From Dalmatians to Dachshunds, Labrador Retrievers to French Bulldogs, showcase a variety of dog breeds through artwork, prints, or even a wallpaper mural. You can also have a gallery wall featuring adorable photos of your own furry friends, creating a personal touch that is sure to bring a smile to everyone's face. 

Tail-wagging Accents

Accessorize your baby's dog-themed nursery with adorable accents that make a statement. Check out all the dogs by Jellycat on our website. Hang dog-shaped shelves on the walls, where you can display doggy-themed books and toys. Place a dog-shaped rug on the floor to add a playful touch. A doggy-shaped lamp or nightlight can provide a soft glow during nighttime feedings or diaper changes. Keep the nursery tidy and organized with dog-themed storage solutions, as well! Incorporate dog baskets or bins to store toys, blankets, and diapers. A dog-shaped wall hook or leash rack can add functionality and a dash of cuteness to the space.

In late May, one of our customers created a beautiful nursery for their baby boy. This nursery was dog-themed. The Liz and Roo items that they paired with the rest of the ensemble is our Flax Linen Crib Skirt and a monogrammed Flax Linen Crib Rail Cover. That adorable plaid pattern that is seen on the pillow and knot ties along the rail cover can be found from Spoonflower. You can also find that perfect wallpaper in Pop Doodle Dog Neutral on Spoonflower as well! The customer got creative and used the plaid fabric and added that along with our knot ties to add even more cohesiveness to the rest of the nursery. If you like the addition of the ties to a rail cover, you can explore some more ideas on our website. The flax linen stripe ties have a matching crib sheet; same for the navy windowpane ties and crib sheet. Both look GREAT with this crib rail cover.

As you can tell, we are obsessed with this nursery. We hope you can use these pictures as well as this blog for inspiration for your own nursery. Please send us pictures of your nurseries that you decorate so we can post them (info@lizandroo.com).
