Woodland themed nursery inspiration


by Rosie Floyd |

Choosing a nursery theme is one of the most fun parts of pregnancy and right at the top of our favourites list is a woodland themed nursery. Not only is it a lovely choice for either gender, but it's also truly timeless. There is so much potential, whether you fancy going all out woodland or just want to add a few touches here and there.

Wanderlust brought a strong travel theme to nursery décor last year and we're expecting more of the same in 2022, drawing upon inspiration from places far and wide. Think safari and ocean themes, global wall features, animal print, coastal themes and photos of faraway destinations.

So whether you’ve got a special delivery on the way or just feel like redecorating your toddler’s room, take a whizz through our woodland theme nursery interior buys – the perfect gender-neutral interior design.

What other nursery themes are on-trend for 2022?

Gender-neutral

Gone are the days of pink being purely for girls and blue for boys. We are seeing more of a gender-neutral theme to current trends, and it’s really refreshing.

Boho

Boho is predicted to be a growing trend for 2022, with botanicals, macrame wall hangings, houseplants, pastels and earthy colours such as browns and terracotta being heavily featured against clean whites. Natural materials such as wood, rattan and cane also bring the outdoors in for a bit of Boho chic, making your nursery space feel warm, cosy and relaxed, whilst staying close to nature.

Bright colours

We’ve also seen lots of rainbow themes with strong pops of colour, as well as more vintage décor ideas, including ginghams, florals, gold accessories and vintage prints.

Disney and Pixar

Many of us grew up watching Disney and Pixar movies, so it’s no surprise that as adults we want to bring that magic into the décor of our children's rooms. According to the experts at Babysense, the most popular themes gaining popularity this year include 'The Princess & the Frog', 'Aladdin', 'Snow White', 'Moana', and 'Bambi'.
