Design tips for decorating a boho style nursery

Here’s how to achieve the boho aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a boho nursery?

Nurserys play a monumental role in nurturing the growth and development of your little one. If you’re expecting a new addition to your home, chances are you are already dreaming up the design, color, and style of your nursery (and how you landed on this page!).

Unlike other rooms in the house, nurseries have their own set of unique considerations beyond mere aesthetics. Safety, accessibility, and sensory stimulation all play crucial roles in crafting a space that fosters growth and exploration for your baby.

Whether you're in the process of a nursery remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design:

  • Paint or Wallpaper: Select a color or pattern that sets the desired mood for the nursery and complements the boho style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Crib: The crib is the centerpiece of every nursery, providing a safe and comfortable sleeping space for the baby. It is where the little one will spend most of their time resting and sleeping. A crib often comes with a mattress and can be adorned with cute bedding and a mobile to engage the baby's senses. Many cribs these days are convertible to grow as your baby does.
  • Changing Table: A changing table is a practical addition to a nursery. It provides a dedicated space for diaper changes and storage for diapers, wipes, and other baby essentials. You can find dedicated changing tables or can turn any sideboard or dresser into one with a proper changing table topper.
  • Rocking Chair or Glider: A rocking chair or glider is a lovely addition to a nursery, offering a cozy spot for feeding, soothing, and bonding with your baby. It provides a comfortable seat for parents or caregivers during those precious moments. If you have the space, we recommend pairing your rocking chair or glider with a footstool or ottoman for maximum comfort.
  • Dresser: A dresser is often included in a nursery to provide storage for baby clothes, blankets, and toys. It helps keep the nursery organized and ensures that everything is easily accessible when needed. Your changing table may double as a dresser, but trust us, you’ll be thankful for the extra storage if you have the floor place.
  • Storage Shelves or Bookcase: Storage shelves or a bookcase can be used to display books, toys, and decorative items in the nursery. They add a touch of charm and provide a place to keep items within reach.
  • Area Rug or Playmat: Soon enough, your baby will be crawling around. Make sure you choose an area rug or playmat that takes up the majority of your square footage and will be comfortable for both you and your baby to spend countless hours playing on.
  • Decorative Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Typically in a nursery, you’d want a flush surface mount on the ceiling and wall-mounted sconces or table lamps near the crib or rocking chair. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.
  • Curtains or Blinds: Window treatments not only help control the light, they help promote a restful sleep environment for your baby, while also adding a layer of privacy and warmth. Opting for blackout or heavy, lined curtains can enhance these effects, making them perfect for ensuring your baby’s comfort and tranquility. Don’t forget a curtain rod!|

What materials and home decor should I use to achieve a boho nursery design?

Bohemian (aka Boho) interior design is known for its eclectic and unconventional approach, celebrating a rich mix of colors, prints, patterns, and textures—lots and lots of them. This style exudes a carefree, artistic vibe, incorporating elements from different cultures and eras. The boho style encourages personal expression and creativity, resulting in layered spaces that are full of character and charm. We’ll always be the first to tell you that design rules are meant to be broken, but there really are no rules when it comes to boho design. And that’s just part of the charm. Throw out every piece of design advice you’ve heard, and go wild!

To achieve a boho nursery is simple. While there is no standard boho color palette, you’ll often see a mix of cool and warm colors and bold jewel tones. Common boho decor elements include vibrant rugs, floor cushions, tapestries, and an abundance of plants that bring life and energy to the space. Vintage furniture, colorful textiles, and unique artifacts reflect a globetrotter's spirit, while layered fabrics create a cozy, lived-in feel.
