Wild Western Theme Baby Decor, Bedding and Nursery Ideas

When looking for ideas for boys' baby decor, western baby items always seem to catch my eye. A western nursery theme can be so versatile as well as the color schemes that can be used. Just like the Old West; these nurseries can be restful with shades of brown, tan and rust or popping and lively with bright shades of red, yellow and naby blue. My favorite fabrics for a western baby bedding set are vintage cowboy prints in earth tones reflecting old leather saddles, cowboy boots, hats and horseshoes.

Cowboy themed baby items for the nursery are so common that everything you would need to complete your western baby decor can be purchased at your local discount store or you can make your own rustic items including a pine log crib.

Every piece of nursery furniture was made by hand including the native pine log baby crib.

If you're game for a little scavenger hunt out to the horse barn or to your friend’s farm, you might pick up many unique western theme nursery decorations to match your western nursery bedding and baby decor for free.

Here are some decorating ideas so that you will know exactly how to create the perfect western baby decor with an old western cowboy theme.


A little cowpoke’s got to have a place to put his blanket and rest after a long day out on the wide open range wrangling his herd of cows. How fancy or plain you want the crib or bed to be depends on how rustic your baby decor is destined to be. There are luxury cribs in wrought iron with galloping horses and stallion heads on the crib finials as well as the headboard in the high end price range that would fit just as nicely in a camp house as in a pretty little cowgirl’s room decorated with dainty pink baby decor.

If money’s tight, here’s one of my favorite decorating tips that will work with most any baby’s nursery theme. Buy a cheap, used (recently manufactured with appropriate safety ratings) baby crib, give it a makeover by painting it to match your nursery’s color scheme and stencil some western designs on the headboard and footboard. Heck, if you think it’s safe, you might glue or nail some old horseshoes to decorate the bed.


Western chandeliers with leather cowboy boot bases and bandana print lamp shades are the perfect ceiling decoration as well as lighting based on bucking broncos or with the wiring strung through steer horns. A high quality nursery chandelier of this type will cost big bucks, so you might want to consider a ceiling fan in black and white cow print that would be more inexpensive.


Your cowboy baby decor will need a western rug to cover the rough planks on the floor. The right cowboy rug will even dress up your polished hardwood in front of the crib. A round braided area rug, a rectangle rug with pictures of old time cowboys printed on it or a large cowboy and horse shaped rug would all be welcome additions to the western baby décor depending on the color of the cowboy baby crib bedding set and size of your nursery.
