The good news is that a nursery does not have to match the color scheme or interior style of your home. 

The key to executing this is proper planning! You can do this all by YOURSELF with little or no decorating experience and without the aid of a professional decorator. 

All it takes is the right tools and a little know-how. Since you’re here, in search of ideas, you’re already on the right part! 

Decide on a color scheme for your baby boy’s nursery. Blue, green, grey, taupe, and beige are popular colors for boy nurseries. Place large items like the cot, chair, and dresser first. Keep clutter at bay and prioritize comfort!

To help get you thinking, here are 20 super cute baby boy nursery ideas! 


1. Opt for a Textured Green Accent Wall 

Green is commonly used for baby nurseries because it is visually calming and highly versatile. Incorporating green into your baby’s nursery decor gives it an organic and relaxing feel.
