When it comes to decorating your nursery, it is really all about personal preference, and not to much about what the current decor trends are.

A nursery is not just a place where your baby will sleep, it is also the space that you will spend most of your time in, with bathing, dressing, feeding, play and relaxing.
So take this into consideration too, when deciding on the theme and colour scheme of your nursery.

If you love the traditional blue for boys, pink for girls, then go with this, as you have to feel just as comfortable and content this space as baby does.

When choosing a specific theme there are so many beautiful designs available, and you will be able to create a nursery that looks like it was decorated by a pro!

Appliquéd linen is a wonderful way to create your themed nursery. From Farmyard themes, to Zoo animal themes, to Nautical, Bugs, Transport and Teddy themes.
Coordinating your appliquéd linen with a few functional decor accessories in the same theme will finish off your nursery beautifully. Items like dustbins, compactum caddies and lamps.

There are other stunning nursery decor accessories that you can add, that will compliment your themed nursery - themed mosquito nets with adorable hanging mobiles, wall paper borders depicting the characters of the theme you are creating, and hand painted canvasses. Not to mention height charts, treasure boxes and coat racks.

Themed nurseries are perfect if you know the gender of your baby, and you want to create a gender specific nursery.
Most of the animal themes are also available in neutral colour ways, which is a safe bet if you don't know your baby's gender, or if you want a nursery that you can use again for the next baby, regardless of gender.

A neutral nursery would be one that has no specific theme; this can be a nursery that makes use of colour schemes that are suitable for either a boy or a girl, or a nursery that is neutral in colour.
You can still opt for predominantly white for a clean fresh look, and then incorporate this with accent colours of your choice. 

Popular nursery colour combinations are blue and brown, green and brown, pink and brown, and stone and brown.

Whatever your preference, there are many different options available in both linen and decor accessories that will help you create the perfect space where baby can sleep, play and grow in.

Happy decorating!
