Summer interior ideas for your baby’s nursery
If it’s time to decorate your baby’s nursery, why not add a splash of summer style?
With an emphasis on bold colours and light materials, summer-inspired style is all about feeling good and having fun. And when you’re creating a space for your little one to grow up and play in, that couldn’t be more fitting!
So even when the weather looks a little grey outside, you can still bring all the fun of summer indoors. Here’s how you can enjoy that summery feel all year round…
Make a statement with bold colours
From deep orange sunsets to bright pink strawberry ice cream, celebrate the bold colours of summer in your baby’s nursery. While the skies can go a little grey by autumn, you can hold onto those bright sunny days with vibrant accent colours.
Try to pick out positive colours, like sunny yellows, deep pinks, and warm oranges. These colours are perfect for giving you those ‘feel good’ summer vibes – no matter what the weather is weatherlike outdoors.
But you don’t need to go overboard with bold colours everywhere. In fact, adding small ‘pops’ of colour is more effective when you contrast them against neutral colours. So whether it’s a lively rug or a colourful mobile, add bursts of fun colour to create a statement in your baby’s nursery.
Keep it light and bright
Close your eyes and imagine you’ve just arrived at your summer beach home. I know, chance would be a fine thing…
But anyway, when you imagine a beach house, you probably picture clean tones with a crisp white colour scheme. That’s because coastal houses are generally associated with being calm and neutral spaces.
So when it comes to decorating your nursery, keep any furniture pieces light and bright. This will create a nice airy and open feel to your nursery, just like a coastal cottage. And while that’s great for capturing the essence of summer, it also means your baby’s furniture will look timeless while they grow up.
Plus, with white furnishings, it couldn’t be easier to make sure fun pops of colour really stand out.
Add natural elements to the nursery
Whether it’s a walk through a flower field or a trip to the lake, those long summer days are perfect for exploring your natural surroundings.
So if you’d like to add a summery twist to your baby’s nursery, think natural. With earthy elements and rural influences, boho-inspired pieces are ideal for getting in touch with our natural roots.
Not sure how to get the boho look? When it comes to a natural boho style, opt for earthy tones, floaty or rugged fabrics, and handcrafted furniture.
Bring out the blue tones
If summer was any colour, it’d have to be blue. From the bright cloudless skies to the sparkling swimming pools, blue is summer in a nutshell.
So it’s no wonder that the colour blue is scientifically proven to make us feel good. As being around watery spaces like a pool or lake can calm us down, being around the colour blue is naturally uplifting.
To give your nursery a feel-good summer makeover, make sure you fill the space with plenty of blue fabrics and accessories. Then, team these blue tones with crisp white furniture, and you’ll feel like you’re on a Greek island getaway… although those night feeds might put a stop to that!
Opt for natural wood furnishings
Like I mentioned earlier, boho style reminds us of those summery days exploring nature. And if you’re trying to give your baby’s nursery a summer-inspired makeover, natural wood is the perfect place to start.
As boho is all about the laid back and natural look, pick out furniture pieces that are crafted with unfinished wood. Whether it’s rattan, cane, or wicker, there’s just something about natural wood that makes any space feel that bit more summery.
Enjoy beach-inspired furniture
Kids love spending time at the beach. From splashing in the waves to building sandcastles, a day at the seaside means endless hours of fun.
So if a summer-inspired nursery is up your street, a beach theme seems like the perfect choice. With beach house inspired furniture, you can instantly add a fun summer twist to your baby’s nursery.
Bring the sunshine with yellow accents
Yellow is easily the happiest colour in the world. As it’s the colour of sunshine, being surrounded by yellow instantly makes you feel warm and cheerful.
So no matter what the forecast has in store, make sure you bring the sunshine inside with yellow accent tones. With yellow, less is more – because while it quickly grabs your attention, it can become overwhelming if you go overboard.
When it comes to adding you only need one or two pops of yellow to give your nursery a fun summery boost.
Embrace fun pastel shades
Pastel shades are ideal for nurseries. Fun, light, and calming all at once, you can’t go wrong with pretty pastel hues.
And since pastel is bright and cheerful, it goes hand in hand with a summer-style interior. Fill your baby’s nursery with pastel tones and you’ll enjoy uplifting summer vibes.
