Botanical nursery decor ideas you’ll love for spring


Something about warm days and extra sunshine has us thinking all things spring right now. And especially if you’re expecting a baby during the spring season, it’s the perfect excuse to design a botanically-inspired nursery!

From bold blooms to subtle nature-inspired details, here are eight ways to incorporate a botanical nursery theme into your little one’s space.

In case you were wondering, the nursery wallpaper trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere–and it’s a fantastic way to work a little botanical freshness into your baby’s room.

Go all out with a garden-themed print in shades of blush, lavender, or leaf green. Keep the rest of the look understated with white or natural wood furniture and neutral accessories to let your wallpaper be the star.

Create a DIY flower display

Add a punch of color with a stunning piece of decor like this floral wall art! The piece would be easy to DIY with silk flowers that will always be in bloom, or you could use simple greenery instead.

If you think botanical automatically equates to “girl nursery,” think again! This evergreen trend (see what we did there?) works just as easily in a baby boy nursery. Opt for leaf-patterned prints like this room for a look that works for any gender.

Plant-themed accessories

The best part of a botanical nursery is how easy it is to achieve the theme. We love the subtle effect a leaf-printed pillow, jungle art, and a few live plants have in capturing a nature-inspired look for this neutral baby nursery.

If the permanence of wallpaper isn’t really your thing, a few oversized prints can achieve a similar effect that’s easy to swap out if your tastes change. Vintage-inspired sketches or paintings of herbs and other leafy greens create a look that makes a statement.

Bold statement wall

Subtle not your thing? Turn the wall behind the crib into a focal point for the room — this jungle-themed statement piece might be one of our new favorites! Whether you’re painting a mural or hanging mural-style wallpaper, a bold, botanical image like this is just the thing to infu@se some (plant) life into your baby’s space.

Looking for some flower power that pairs perfectly with the trendy boho style? Choose a bold, oversized daisy print to create a sunny, laid-back look that can easily grow with your child. 

Put a leaf on it

We love the textural effect of adding silk leaves or flowers to your nursery decor. Stick a few fronds behind a mirror or art piece over the changing table, hang a leafy garland, or display a neutral green wreath on the door for a spring-time effect year-round.

Paint it green

Who says you need leaves and flowers to take a little inspiration from nature for your baby’s nursery? Instead of relying on prints or actual blooms, let nature’s favorite color take center stage with this on-trend shade of deep green for a bold backdrop in the nursery.

Go for faux

Just dipping your toe in the botanical pond? Round out your decor with an artificial decorative tree that adds life to your nursery — no green thumb required. Boost the look by pairing it with natural materials throughout the nursery, like cane or rattan furniture and gauzy curtains.

If you’re looking for a botanical option that won’t clash with your neutral aesthetic, we love the trend toward sketch-style plant prints in wallpaper.

These black and white patterns let you pick up other favorite colors in the rest of the room, or you can keep the whole space neutral with just a few pops of actual greenery.
