Design tips for decorating a organic style nursery

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

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

The organic interior design style is an ode to the natural world, emphasizing harmony, sustainability, and a connection to nature through interior spaces. It champions the use of natural shapes, drawing inspiration from the organic forms and irregular contours found in the environment. This design philosophy extends to furniture and decor, which often feature flowing lines and natural motifs, bringing a sense of the outdoors inside. Adopting an organic design approach creates interiors that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also foster a sense of wellbeing and environmental consciousness, offering a tranquil sanctuary that aligns closely with the rhythms of nature.

To achieve an organic nursery, start with a soft, muted color palette featuring neutrals and earth tones that echo the serenity of natural landscapes. Then start layering in textures and materials. Materials like wood, stone, and natural fibers like cotton and linen are common organic style choices because of their eco-friendly and non-toxic properties. Indoor plants are a staple in organic interiors, enhancing the space with vibrant greenery and a living element that bolsters the indoor-outdoor connection. Maximize natural light to illuminate the space and highlight the natural beauty of the materials and colors used.
