5 Inspiring and Creative Baby Boy Nursery Themes

So you’ve got a baby boy on the way, but you’re having a tough time figuring out how to design his nursery. What will he like? What will stimulate him? What will be interesting and creative – but not crazy expensive?

Luckily, we’ve got your back. This list of inspiring and creative baby boy nursery themes is bound to take away some of your nursery stress and help you figure out what’s right for your brand new baby.

1. Wildlife Safari Explorer!

Jungle-themed nurseries make the top of my list here because they’re adorable, affordable, and super cute. All you need to make it work are a bunch of plush animal toys, wall prints, maybe some faux zebra or lion decorative pillows or accessories, and greenery!

I personally love nurseries with lots of indoor plants in them – they bring a real something special to the room. If you’re looking at designing a safari or jungle-themed nursery, it’s a great opportunity to use some nice looking natural greenery.

2. Space Astronaut Adventurer!

Space-themed nurseries are wicked cool. There are a bunch of manufacturers across the world wide web that ship affordable (not to mention stunning!) space-related decor right to your doorstep. Glow-in-the-dark stars, lava and/or moon lamps, indoor tents shaped like rockets… the possibilities are endless here.

3. Ship’s Ahoy: Sailor’s Haven!

Here’s another great one you don’t see very often – a nautical-themed nursery! This one is super easy to accomplish. All you’ll need is a dark navy blue and white color scheme, an anchor or two, and some sea-themed bedding! This theme can be simple, elegant, and not as in-your-face as the previous two… but it’s still pretty creative, and it’ll have your newborn’s visitors talking.

5. Lumberjack Woodland Explorer Theme!

Log cabins, wooden canoes, lots of plaid, and a faux bonfire? A muted lumberjack theme might be ideal for your newborn baby boy.

For families that love the wild outdoors (and/or a nice cottage lifestyle), this theme may be the one for you. Finding plaid accents is easy, as are finding decorative items to fit the “log cabin” aesthetic.

Here are just a few that we’ve found to maximize your potential.

To help you choose, and make the most out of your nursery-building experience, remember that money isn’t everything. There is so much you can craft with your own materials – and this process may be a fun bonding exercise for you and your partner.

Keep in mind that sometimes, less is more.

Happy decorating!
