woodland nursery design ideas

One of the most recent popular themes for nursery design is the Woodland theme, and this charmingly rustic style shows no signs of fading anytime soon. In fact, Pinterest declared the Woodland aesthetic as the most popular nursery trend for 2017. (source)

Here’s a game plan to help you style to Woodland nursery of your dreams!

Woodland Nursery Colors

Think about the color palette you want for your Woodland nursery. Although earthy tones serve as the base layer for most Woodland themes, don’t be afraid to add color. The neutral color bases usually include shades brown, beige, cream, light blue, gray, and olive/woodsy green. We always suggest finding your crib furniture first, then match a paint color to the furniture. It’s much easier than the other way around!

We love wallpaper in the nursery. There are many sources of woodland-inspired wallpapers, and many are peel and stick… so you can easily change up the nursery as your baby moves to toddler (and then teen). Splurge a little and head on over to Spoonflower to find dozens of wallpaper ideas. They are a little pricey, but you can also paint three walls and then accent a single wall in the nursery. If you find a busy print you love, putting it on one wall, behind bookshelves, or in a window seat really works.

There is a site on Etsy called BC Magic Wallpapers, and while it may be a splurge item, these custom wallpapers are adorable. Check out the teepee pattern below.

Woodland Nursery Decor & Furnishings

After you’ve painted the room and selected your bedding, the really fun stuff begins. When it comes to accenting your Woodland nursery, there is no limit to the options. Shop at Hobby Lobby, on Etsy for handmade items, and at some of the major retailers like Anthropologie for accessories. We discovered this arrow wall hook online at Anthropologie and the bookends on Etsy. Here are just a few of the many, many fun options you can find.
