A nursery needs to be just as functional as it is adorable, but it can be difficult to balance the needs of a baby with the bedroom decor you spent so much time curating. Luckily, baby supply manufacturers have prioritized cuteness with their diapers, clothing and of course blankets, so you don’t have to choose between style and function.
Looking for nursery design inspiration? Take a look at some of our favorite nursery designs and elements that incorporate our adorable and functional blankets below!
One of the hottest home design trends of 2019 has been wallpaper - not only for nurseries, but for entire homes. No matter if you’re looking for bold, abstract or colorful, there is a wallpaper design to fit your nursery dreams. Looking for inspiration? Take a look at these gorgeous wallpaper designs on Etsy. Keep in mind that you’ll want to choose a wallpaper that will complement your baby’s favorite blanket!
There’s something about having a baby of your own that reminds you of childhood, which is why one of our favorite nursery design touches is recycling or repurposing. Whether it’s using your childhood crib and updating it with a fresh coat of paint, or resanding your grandma’s favorite rocking chair, you can easily add a touch of vintage flair to your nursery that carries a little bit of personal history.
Don’t worry if your parents didn’t keep your crib - you can still bring vintage charm to your baby’s nursery by purchasing a lookalike crib like the Jenny Lind crib.
3. Masculine Designs
While most nursery designs are focused on pastel colors and light hues, nurseries with masculine touches can be just as adorable. If you’re considering a masculine nursery for your baby boy, you’ll want to choose darker paint colors and consider mixing woods and metals for an outdoorsy feel. Add a comfy chair, woodland animals and a cozy blanket and your masculine nursery is complete!
4. Sports Theme
Make sure your baby starts cheering young with a sports themed nursery! Whether it’s a specific team, or just a favorite sport, creating a sports themed nursery can be easy with accessories from stores like Target and Hobby Lobby. Take a look at the baseball themed nursery above for inspiration! With the striped wall and baseball font name plaque, your baby will be ready for the ballpark in no time.
5. Mix and Match
With baby showers and gifts from family and friends, your baby will have plenty of blankets, but that pile might not include the Highway 3 blanket you’ve had your eye on. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to mix and match grandma’s handmade quilt and your personalized Highway 3 blanket! Consider matching your personalized blanket to your bedding exactly, or choose blanket colors that complement the nursery furniture and wall colors.
6. Wood Walls
Shiplap and wooden walls aren’t just for Joanna Gaines and Fixer Upper - they can make a great addition to any nursery. Not only can a wooden wall tie your baby’s nursery in with the rest of your home’s decor, but it can provide a great contrast wall to place your crib in front of. You can either create a DIY version of the wood wall above, or if you’re not super crafty, try one of these wood lookalike wallpapers.
7. Pretty in Pink
Who doesn’t dream of a soft and pink nursery for a sweet baby girl? You can update the classic pink and white look with touches of gold and added textures. We love how this nursery used a white fur rug to tie the entire room together and left the pop of color to the Highway 3 blanket hanging over the crib.
9. Polka Dots
Polka dots pack a lot of cuteness in a small package. You can add polka dots to your nursery furniture, bedding and even walls. Forget painting the polka dots on yourself; there are peel and stick variations available in any color you desire - perfect for apartments or places where you can’t paint the walls. If polka dots aren’t your thing, you can switch it up by adding hearts, triangles or squares throughout the nursery.
No matter which style you choose, you can keep your baby’s nursery sweet and cozy with one of our personalized blankets. Available in a wide variety of colors and styles, a Highway 3 blanket will be the star of your room; purchase your baby blanket now!
