Country Baby Boy Nursery Ideas


Country nursery décor offers many possibilities for a baby boy nursery or for a baby girl's room.


For example, the theme might reflect childhood memories of days spent on the farm surrounded by farm animals or parents may choose modern country designs with bright green John Deere tractors as inspiration for their color scheme.

Primitive country décor often features homemade baby furniture and a collection of vintage farm implements instead of a traditional baby mobile.

No matter which style of country decorating you prefer, there's a way to incorporate it into your country nursery decorating project. I would encourage anybody that enjoyed summers at the old home place far beyond the city lights to give the country style of decorating a chance. You may be amazed at how a few minutes rocking baby in this environment will soothe your rattled nerves at the end of the day.
Country baby nursery decorations are as diverse as each individual’s experiences in their own rural paradise. For one decorator, primitive means country and to another farm animals and big red barns are the decorations of choice. One of the interesting aspects of decorating a country nursery is choosing a particular style of country crib bedding, nursery furniture and an appropriate country theme style of lighting.

There are many country bedding styles for you to pick from:

  • John Deere Tractor Bedding and Accessories are excellent for a modern country look.

  • Barn yard themes with friendly black and white cows, roosters and hens, horses or any of your favorite farm animals with the barn in the background are always fun.

To many decorators, country baby bedding should be hand made. Consider traditional hand quilted patchwork baby quilts to decorate your baby crib. If you have a vintage quilt that has a few rough patches around the edges, consider giving it a makeover. Take a look and determine if there is a section of the quilt that is large enough to serve as a crib comforter. Many times you can cut this section out, refinish the edges and not only salvage an heirloom piece but have a unique country baby quilt with family history. Check the damaged areas to see if there are blocks that can be used as matching country theme decorative accessories that will tie your room together beautifully. If you don’t have any quilts that you want to cut into pieces waiting in the cedar chest, employ your local quilting group to help you out.

COUNTRY NURSERY FURNITURE – PRIMITIVE and BEYOND

If you have a woodworking friend, he will love this baby woodworking project. A homemade country baby cradle or crib doesn’t have to have a slick, shiny finish. Simplicity and design sets country furniture apart from the rest. Country folks have always been known for skipping the fancy stuff and keeping things simple. Rustic, wooden country furniture for any room of your home is very basic and baby furniture is no different. If you don’t want to make your country nursery furniture yourself, take a look in the second hand stores and see if there are some painted pieces that could be adapted for use in your country bedroom. They don’t have to be in perfect condition as the well worn look is what you are looking for.

COUNTRY BABY NURSERY LIGHTING

If you buy a set of ready made country baby bedding that has all the stuff to go with it, you might want to pick up the table lamp whose shade matches the bedding set. For the country bedding sets that have no such matching accessories, rustic brass lanterns and lamps with low watt bulbs will set the mood and resemble the flickering farm house lighting of long ago. Replicas of old fashioned light fixtures that once held candles rather than electric light bulbs will work just fine.

COUNTRY BABY DECORATIVE NURSERY ACCESSORY IDEAS

My memories of the decorative items in my grandparent’s farmhouse consist of decorations that were functional. The afghan that grandmother crocheted that kept us warm and the fruits and vegetables in old canning jars that tasted so good added color to the room yet had a purpose. We can get excellent decorating ideas for many country nursery themes from the look and more imporantly, the feel of grandma's house.
