Decorating a nursery for a baby boy

February 6, 2020

I love transforming rooms and I especially love transforming children’s rooms! My last project about a year ago was making one bedroom into a shared room for our girls and I have been so pleased with it so when we found out we were having a baby boy I was excited to get started!


Having two girls previously I had no idea where to start on a boys nursery. I knew I didn’t want a baby blue room so Pinterest became my best friend!

I love lots of the nursery trends at the moment, especially the neutrals accessorized with polka dots or bold prints, green tones and anything with mustard colours!

As much as I loved the neutral tones the room was cream before so I decided to go bold and go for a green/teal colour which I loved on rooms I’d seen. My idea was to team this with mustard and other bold colours.

Here’s the finished nursery…

I am so pleased with the colour of the walls, we painted them Farrow and Ball oval blue room up to just below the ceiling line. I love how this looks.

I’ve added pictures and accessories around the room. Below are two prints from Pretty in print art in frames from H&M.

The drawers and armchair were new purchases as I wanted furniture that could last or be moved rather than being baby specific. The drawers are from Von Haus and I love the Scandinavian feel and the armchair Argos. The cushions on the chair are H&M.

I love this wire ‘hello’ sign from heykiddostudio and the bunting from Scandiborn which ties in the mustard colour I love.

This mobile is in the mustard colour I love again and is from the brand Cam Cam. It’s the perfect mobile for him to look at when I am changing him.

The basket is from Olli Ella and the muslin from Little Blue Nest baby. The muslin is big enough to swaddle in or just for a big blanket.

This shelf was something we had in Evie’s room which I upcycled. It’s a Great Little Trading Company shelf and I bought the brown pegs from H&M home and drilled them in. The hangers are from Scandiborn and I love hanging my favourite outfits on there.

In the cot, I’ve continued the mustard love with this gorgeous cot sheet from Little Green Sheep. It’s breathable and organic.

In his cot there are pillows from H&M and a bunny from Jellycat, the others were presents. 

The shutters on the window are new from Just Shutters and have a black out blind which completely blackout the room, they really are amazing! To see more of the transformation of the front of our house with shutters click here.
