There’s something in a garden theme nursery or bedroom for both boys and girls. Parents can either dial up the butterflies and flowers, or accentuate the outdoor bugs.

Parents who love the beauty of nature might consider bringing it into their child’s nursery or bedroom. Adorable Ladybugs, beautiful butterflies, and busy bumblebees all live amidst the garden flowers.

What nursery or bedroom theme could be more fun, alive, and colorful. With a little thought, they’ll be pleasantly surprised at the creative ideas that sprout all over the room.

How to decorate a garden theme bedroom with 13 ideas

Start by Decorating the Walls of the Garden Theme Bedroom

There’s certainly a wide array of wallpaper choices to complement garden themes for a nursery or bedroom, but many parents opt for the less expensive coat of paint. Walls for a child’s garden theme bedroom look wonderful in a bright, sunshine yellow.

Another fun option for one or more walls is painting the top sky blue and the bottom grassy green. Parents can use a darker shade of green from the same paint card to bring texture to individual stalks of grass and stems of flowers. They can liven up the mural with whimsical daisies, bright buttercups, towering sunflowers, and charming tulips.

Hidden somewhere amidst the foliage can be a ladybug, caterpillar, cricket, ant, butterfly, bumblebee, or dragonfly. All sorts of flower and insect stencils are available to help parents accent a mural or create a beautiful border. An equally attractive option is garden theme wall decals.

Bedding, Window Treatments, and Rugs for the Garden Theme Nursery or Bedroom

Whicker headboards, or wrought-iron day beds have an outdoor look that complements a garden theme bedroom perfectly. Whicker doll carriages, chairs, and basinets are wonderful accent pieces.

Some do-it-yourself decorators enjoy the project of making a headboard from picket fencing and then weaving silk vines in and out of the posts for a finishing touch.

Most bed and crib set manufacturers offer one or more choices for garden theme bedspreads, sheets, bumper pads, and even area rugs. Ladybugs, flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, and bumblebees are all common motifs.

Character bed sets from popular movies such as “Bug’s Life,” are another option for decorating a garden theme bedroom.

Curtains should be lacy or sheer to accentuate the outdoor feel. For rooms with a hardwood floor, a floral area rug in complementary colors will look wonderful.

Decorating a Garden Theme Nursery or Bedroom

Greenery is a key element to accent a garden theme bedroom or nursery. Parents can allow children to choose a plant or two for the windowsill and teach them how to properly care for it.

Silk vines, or flowers can be draped from the top of shelves or over door and window frames. Garden lattice can be nailed to sides of shelves or desks and entwined with silk vines or flowers.

Bug stuffed animals will add a splash of color to a child’s garden theme nursery or bedroom. A set of brightly colored child’s gardening tools makes an eye-catching arrangement on the wall.

So many toys are created with an insect theme; parents shouldn’t have any trouble accenting. And for an older child’s bedroom, prints or posters of flowers and insects can bring color to the walls.

Higher shelves are a great place to decorate with birdhouses, flowerpots, watering cans, and storybooks. For a nursery, Parents can display Eric Carle’s “Very Hungry Caterpillar,” “Very Busy Spider,” “Very Quiet Cricket,” “Very Lonely Firefly,” “Very Grouchy Ladybug,” or “Very Clumsy Click Beetle” books with covers facing outward.

For an older child’s room, non-fiction books on insects or plants are a great choice. Decorating with books is an inexpensive way to instill a love of reading early.

Parents can personalize the bedroom by clipping pictures from seed catalogues with their child. Together, they can frame floral collages or decoupage wooden accent pieces for the room such as jewelry boxes, pencil containers, or desks.

A nursery can be individualized with any pictures of the baby near flowers or sporting a bug costume for Halloween. Creative touches like these make the room feel special and fill it with happy memories.

Vibrant flowers and cheerful insects make a garden theme nursery the perfect place for a child to blossom. For more ideas, parents can check out articles on bedrooms with ocean, airplane, princess, or jungle themes.
