Decorate your baby boy's nursery in a theme or with colours that you find soothing and attractive. Colours can heavily impact your mood, depending on your personal experiences. The nursery should make you feel at ease as soon as you step inside of it, and your little boy will feel at ease as well. Use themed or colour coordinated designs on the walls, bedding and through accessories.

Animal themes can range from farm animals, jungle creatures or circus performers. Keep your colour palette to two or three main colours or include a variety of colours. Include images of a bright red barn, green grass, white picket fences, tractors, a pond, blue skies and various animals for a farm theme. A circus could include red and white stripes like a tent, big bears on unicycles, elephants doing magic tricks and a lion ring master. Set a jungle scene with green trees, vines, monkeys, lions, giraffes and hippos.


Planes, trains and automobiles are just the beginning for transportation themes. Focus on a particular type of vehicle or build an entire city by using a combination of every vehicle that interests you. Planes, jets, helicopters, trains, tractors, trucks and cars are available in baby bedding, decals and accessories. Construction, military, police and fireman themes can be accentuated with images of related vehicles.


Sports themes can be built around your favourite sport, team or a combination of sports. Basketball, baseball, soccer and football are common themes for little boy's nurseries. If you both root for the same team, consider using that team as the inspiration for your little boy's bedroom. If you root for opposing teams, use the sport. For example, hang banners for each NFL team on the walls if you are passionate football fans, but like different teams.


Decorate your boy's nursery in a contemporary style if that's what you prefer. Robin's egg blue or lime green goes with chocolate brown, beige and cream. Use circles, stripes or geometric patterns to carry out the theme. Simple, clean line furniture in dark wood will add to the decor.


Most little boys will grow to enjoy digging in the yard, catching bugs or other creepy, crawly, slimy beings. Decorate his nursery with images of non-threatening bugs, frogs or snakes. Include blue paint to represent the sky and green grass or a dark pond to set up the environment for the creatures.


Nautical themes can work for other common boy nursery themes. Use red, blue and white to represent a typical ship or sailor theme. Beach themes can include surfing, pirates, shipwrecks or sea creatures. The entire room can be transformed into an underwater paradise with something different on each wall, such as dolphins, a shipwreck, whales and schools of colourful tropical fish.
