Ideas for a Classic Pooh Nursery
Decorate your baby's nursery with images of your favourite silly old bear. (baby in the crib image by Tatyana Gladskih from

If you favour the original A. A. Milne tales of Winnie the Pooh with their ethereal illustrations by E.H. Shepard, the Classic Pooh nursery may be the ideal way for you to welcome your little one home to his own Hundred Acre Wood. The muted colour palette of Shepard's pictures provides a dreamy, soothing choice for your nursery, while the gentle characters from Milne's stories offer a whimsical theme without veering into less sophisticated Disney version. With Classic Pooh products available both online and at retail chains such as Target and Sears, merchandise for your nursery will be accessible, simplifying your decorating process.


Select a hue from the muted, ethereal tones of Classic Pooh illustrations. A soft yellowish-tan on your walls highlights the colour of Pooh's fur, while a palest blush pink is the perfect backdrop for your little Piglet. Sage green is an elegant choice if you prefer the surrounding walls to represent the Hundred Acre Wood. Classic Pooh wallpaper borders are available, though a stencilled or freehand quote from A. A. Milne makes a more sophisticated border for the top of your room.


You can find a variety of Classic Pooh crib bedding sets online and through retailers. Likewise, if you or a loved one prefer to make the bedding, officially licensed Classic Pooh fabric is available in the standard colour scheme of sage-tan-pink and also in white and pink toile depicting scenes from The House at Pooh Corner. Alternately, you may select a solid crib bedding and accent the room with Pooh characters.


Place a soft Pooh rug on the floor beside the crib. Classic Pooh plush toys of Piglet, Tigger, Pooh, and Eeyore populate the bookcase in your baby's room alongside copies of the original stories of Pooh from the 1920s. A framed copy of a favourite E. H. Shepard illustration such as the iconic image of Pooh stuck in Rabbit's hole makes a beautiful piece of wall art. Feel free to paint the words "Hundred Acre Wood" or even "Mr. Sanders" (Pooh's address) over the nursery door.
