Nursery Decor Ideas

When it comes to Blake's bedroom, I know that I want to change it up a bit. 
His room has pale blue walls, beige carpet and white furniture.
Other than the bright colors of his toys I can't help but feel that it looks a bit plain.  

As we are renting we are restricted into what we can do to our home
even so we can still update Blake's room using different decor items.
We've decided that we wont be changing the furniture as they were brought new when we
first got his room sorted. 

I've been searching for nursery ideas over on Pinterest and other websites 
and have come across this room and I just love it! 
I think the colors will really work, although it wont look completely the same
as in this photo I think it will be easy to do something similar.

So here are my ideas on how to I can make Blake's room look a little similar to this one.

First of all I'm thinking of getting the Ikea LÖVA canopy that is in the above photo 
as I feel that it would be a fab addition to Blake's room above his cot.

I  would then change the basket's from his shelf above to green or orange ones. 
This would help bring more color to the room. 

I plan on having a sort out of Blake's toys and decide where they will go. We'll have some on display and others will be in one of his toy boxes. 
One thing I will keep on top of his toy box is his personalised cushion as it brings a bit of personalisation to the room. 

I want to to purchase a rug for the room but undecided yet on which one. 
I want it to be a good size but feel that if we got one in the same color as the one in my inspiration photo there will be too much blue so again I'm thinking green or orange. 

As for wall art we have already got this personalised foot print up on the wall and want to keep that there. 
Now we have got permission to put up more we have got an A,B,C print that my sister purchased. She got Blake the canvas when I was expecting him so want that up and I'm going to find another canvas of some kind to also go on one of the walls.

His rooms window ledge has some cute trinkets that will be staying along with his cream blind on his window which we can't change. 

As much as I love tree design on the wall above the cot in my inspiration photo.
This is something unfortunately we are unable to do. 

What do you think of my ideas? 
Is there anything else you would add? 
Let me know as always comment below.

  1. I think your nursery looks lovely! I like the baby blue and white combination :)

  2. I really love the look you went for and the square units you bought are amazing, i love these kind of posts and would love to see a finished picture of the room :) x

  3. The only thing I would say about the Ikea canopy is that it tends to lean, especially when a slightly older child starts swinging on it - does look good though

  4. love this room decor. I think i actually have this or something similar pinned on pinterest. The colour combinations are gorgeous. :) xx

  5. Oooh i love the look of that blue/grey/green combo...perfect nursery shades! We too live in rented accommodation, but the landlord just happens to be my mum and her boyfriend so we're pretty lucky in that we can decorate anyway we like. Good luck with your nursery plans! xxx

  6. Your ideas sound great to me - it's nice to be able to take some inspiration from elsewhere, and then use your own ideas too. It's a shame you can't do the tree though as it's fab!

  7. I love to look of that room also. I think it's always better to go plain on the walls and then use accessories and wall stickers to make it colourful x

  8. lovely ideas. I like the personalised print too - really cute!

  9. Renting makes decorating so restrictive. In our last place I got my landlords permission to create a nursery. We went to town, I even did a huge mural on one wall. Two months later the landlord decided to sell up. I will never redecorate rented property again. I'll just have to get used to magnolia.

  10. I absolutely love the room you chose as inspiration for your little man's room!

  11. Love your idea's. Those canopies are adorable over cribs. The personalised footprint is amazing, i love it! Will be the perfect addition to the nursery!!

  12. I absolutely love the personalised foot print, ive never seen one done before x

  13. I like your design ideas and I like that you are going to add some more colour because I always think that makes a room look good!

  14. Some lovely ideas - I think the addition of some green will look really fab!

  15. Oooh i love the colour scheme you have chosen. The footprint print is lovely. So unique and great that it matches the colours of the nursery x

  16. Lovely ideas! Adding some green and orange splashes will really brighten up the room

  17. aw some lovely ideas and I adore the colour scheme

  18. absolutely love the colours and the layout seems very practical but cute too

  19. Bursts of colour make a huge difference don't they? I love that footprint wall art!xx

  20. I've just updated my daughters bed since she's gone into double figures but there is so much more I wish I could get

  21. We love IKEA for trend setting. The grey with the splash of lime green is beautiful :) can't wait to see the final results

  22. It's a pain renting, isn't it? I hated the restrictions placed up on. Your ideas are beautiful, though!

  23. Love the colours in the room. I think Ikea furniture is a great way to change things up and add some colour.

  24. Really like the plain walls with the pops of colour. Ikea furniture is always so practical and great value for money

  25. I love the canopy! We haven't really done anything with Q's nursery (he's now 4 weeks old!) other than put up his furniture... x
