Boho nursery decor can really differ from space to space — your baby’s new room is going to look different than your friends’ kids’ rooms, and that’s OK! — but the common thread is that they’ll all include muted tones with organic textures, nature-inspired themes, and lots of fringe and macramé. Boho is easy to customize and make your own, while also being calming and soothing. 

Boho’s inherently eclectic style is what makes it fun to shop for. You can pick up new pieces from modern retailers (like a boho crib!), mix it in with some thrift store treasures, and boom — it will look like everything was always meant to go together. To help you get started decorating or perhaps to help you find that one item you’ve been missing for your nursery, here are 11 great pieces of boho nursery decor.

The ultimate nursery decoration, this name sign displays the name you spent so much time choosing and thinking about. There are many personalization options, including the font, wood stain, text color, size, and of course the name itself. This is a statement piece that will hang in your child’s room for years.

Rugs can help your baby’s room feel cozy and welcoming. Full of warm tones, this one can tie a whole room together. It’s washable, too, so no need to worry about spit-up and blowouts. It comes in various sizes, from 2.5 feet to 5 feet in diameter.

Pottery Barn Kids

If you want your nursery to look neat and tidy, you’ll need somewhere to hide all those dirty onesies, swaddles, and sleep sacks while they wait to be laundered. This hamper is so beautiful that it would be a nice decoration even without the added functionality of a hamper. It’s made of water hyacinth, and it would work well as a toy storage basket, too.

Create a gallery wall with these six adorable prints or hang them in various places around the nursery. This is an easy way to add some personality and charm to your baby’s nursery. Note that they are unframed, so you can either secure them with some fun washi tape or grab a six-pack of 8x10 frames.

Whether you’re preparing a nursery for a rainbow baby or you just like the cheery look of rainbows, this rainbow wall storage basket is both practical and dreamy. It’s equal parts whimsical and functional, and it adds a nice pop of color to a boho theme. Use it to store extra diapers, wipes, pacifiers, or anything you just need to stash away.

Babies enjoy looking at faces, and mirrors can help their development, too. Hang this macrame mirror in your baby’s room so they can see themselves. When my kids were babies, I always held them in front of the mirror while making funny faces, singing songs, and saying daily affirmations.

Little Sleepies

Fans of Little Sleepies pajamas won’t think twice about buying a Little Sleepies crib sheet, too. Many parents love the brand for its soft and stretchy fabric. This rainbow fitted crib sheet is made of bamboo, which helps your baby stay comfortable in the summer and winter. It’s available in two sizes: standard crib and mini crib.

Diapers, wipes, sleepers, burp cloths, bottles — babies need all the things. Store them elegantly on these handmade rattan shelves, which are just the right size for your baby to reach and put items away themselves as soon as they start walking and following directions. So, you know, very soon!

Give the nursery an extra boost of cheer with this sunny wall decal — it would look great right above the crib! The decal is easy to apply and to remove, making it ideal for renters or even homeowners who don’t want to permanently alter the wall. The sun is available in various colors and sizes.

This cotton wall hanging will add a nice pop of color to complement the more muted and neutral tones in your nursery. It’s handmade, so the colors and length of the fringe might vary slightly from one piece to the next, but that just makes it all the more special. Reviewers have mentioned it being on the small side, so it’s not something to make a focal point in the room, but a great accent piece to go with your other boho decor.

While your baby is still a baby, this toy will be considered a nice decoration. Once they start playing and stacking blocks, though, they’ll demand you help them grab this off the shelf so they can play with it. A popular and aesthetically pleasing open-ended toy, rainbow stackers provide endless play opportunities.
