Australiana themed baby nurseries have made a big splash over instagram over that past year! I can definitely see why – it is the perfect soft neutral theme which incorporates lovely greenery AND some cute animals – what’s not to love?
Even though planning your baby’s nursery is so much fun it can get very overwhelming too! So many beautiful wall prints, cot linens, toys.. where do you start? So I’ve put together a short little nursery style guide for boys, girls or neutral Australian themed baby nursery.
THE COT OR BASSINET
Your baby’s bed is a great place to show off some beautiful eucalyptus prints. Pair a eucalyptus sheet with a mustard-earth toned blanket, or go the other way with a mustard sheet and patterned blanket! Hang a beautiful Australian animal garland or mobile near the cot (being sure it is well secured for baby’s safety).
Some sweet prints are the perfect way to inject personality onto your bare nursery walls. Printables are a great way to get started instantly! They go perfectly with inexpensive Kmart, Target or IKEA wall frames Pair the prints with a wooden baby name plaque or a beautiful floral wreath. For a more boyish look the floral wreath could be replaced with nice leafy wreath.
THE SHELF / HANGING SPACE
Consider adding a hanger to display baby’s favourite outfits. A shelf or chest of drawers is a practical place to add special touches such as a hand crocheted Australian animal
