Woodland themed nurseries are a consistently popular trend, and it’s easy to see why. Hasn’t every child imagined living among amazing woodland animals like deer and bunnies? With woodland animals coming to life in so many children’s books, it’s no wonder that parents are finding a way to weave this timeless, whimsical theme into nurseries.
You can incorporate the woodland theme into your child’s nursery with both small touches and over-the-top features, depending on your space and style. When selecting pieces, think about items that can be repurposed and remain meaningful for a child as he or she grows. And of course, there are always those nursery essentials! Here’s a roundup of 10 of my favorite woodland nursery items.
Woodland Nursery Twig Letters - Do Good Designs - These adorable, whimsical letters are a great way to stay on theme while personalizing your child’s room. Plus, we love the mission behind this maker: she donates a portion of her proceeds to benefit children in foster care.
Woodland Themed Crib Bedding - Caden Lane - This crib bedding keeps with the theme, but its simplicity and single accent color of green doesn’t take away from the other decor in the room and allows you flexibility in adding colorful wall art or accents. Teepee - Pottery Barn Kids - Choose your favorite print, but these teepees create a camp-like atmosphere that will entrance your child for years as they use it as a playhouse, hiding spot and more. Tree Branch Wall Hooks - NaturalEarthFarm - I love that these hooks bring the outside in, and kids are sure to recognize the little pieces of nature in their room as they grow. These are made by a family that works, plays and learns together on a homestead in midcoast Maine where they make rustic decor and supplies from nature. Woodland Mobile - Crate & Barrel - This adorable mobile goes beyond just animals to bring in some of the joys of camping, including a campfire and tent. If your room decor is shaping up to be tree- or animal-heavy, this is a great option to bring in some variety. Customizable Woodland Nursery Rug - ChildBeWild - This simple and cute design can be fully customized, whether that is enlarging a character in the center of the rug or changing the background color. This allows you to truly pull the room together with the carpet. Woodland Nursery Art - Tiny Toes Design - Create a collection of woodland nursery art from our wide selection. From a sweet baby deer to a regal red cardinal and a selection of mom and baby animal prints, Tiny Toes Design wall art provides fine art prints that will grow with your child. Group them together for an accent wall and add to the collection as your child grows with his or her favorite animals. A portion of our proceeds goes to animal welfare and environmental causes, with more than $50,000 donated to date. Critter Shaped Storage Baskets - Pottery Barn Kids - These adorable storage baskets aren’t only on-theme, but they are also sure to delight your child as he or she grows and is able to identify each animal. Their organic look and neutral colors help to stretch their lifetime and incorporate them into an older kid’s room too. Tree Blackout Curtains in Cloud Island Gray - Target - Another great neutral accent, these blackout curtains serve a practical purpose too--a nice, dark nursery for your little one to catch z’s! These fit the nature and woodland theme perfectly and are a great backdrop for cute animal items. Personalizable Woodland Growth Chart - Tiny Toes Design - Track your child’s growth alongside fun woodland friends playing in a tree with our Woodland Growth Chart. This piece adds a personalized touch to your nursery and travels with your child into his or her big kid room easily. The growth chart is printed on an artist’s canvas and is easy to hang.
