4. Choose your key styling elements
Styling your baby boy’s nursery is where it all comes together. Think soft furnishings that add character to the room. We have outlined a few ideas below for bedding and decor like rugs, wall art, mobiles and play gyms.
Bedding for your nursery can range from the basic fitted sheet to many layers of blankets and quilts. Choosing a feature print can really help to set the tone of the room like the range from Banabae or Goldie and Ace with some more neutral palettes from Go To Bed, Baby Loves Sleep , 7pm Linen and Silky Tots.
Wall art for nurseries is an inexpensive way to make a huge impact on your room. It’s definitely an easy DIY task that anyone can do, and at the end of it you feel really proud of yourself!! From basic stickers like stars, moons and flowers to full wall decals, the options are endless.
