The word “personalized” should be stressed here since the style of décor in a baby’s first room is a very personal decision. So, what ARE some of these stylish themes that are being used in baby boy nurseries right now and how do you go about choosing the best one for your son?

Remember when teddy bears and baby rattles were the traditional icons of a masculine nursery? There were really not a lot of choices for boys beyond these iconic graphics and baby blue gingham check fabric. Parents who have a special affinity for baby blue teddy bears will be happy to learn that they can still find boy nursery bedding collections in this classic theme. But truthfully, I can’t tell you the last time I saw old-fashioned baby rattles and diaper pins used in even vintage baby boy nursery decor!

Parents who are passionate about a hobby or favorite pastime dream of sharing the fun with their babies. Dads who love to spend time in the country, hunting and fishing are fond of rustic boy baby nursery themes. This design is reminiscent of hunting lodges and log cabins where patchwork baby quilts, homemade cribs and plaid flannel rule! Of course, not every parent hunts or loves to fish nor will a primitive nursery blend with every home’s decor. There are also sports themes like baseball, football, basketball as well as golf, soccer and the list goes on and on! The bottom line is that your hobbies might inspire a few baby boy nursery ideas.

Not every mom and dad is lucky enough to have an interesting, colorful profession worthy of becoming a nursery theme. But if you are a fireman, a policeman, an airplane pilot or an engineer on a passenger train, you should know that there are some really cute baby bedding collections in these themes.

The nursery doesn’t have to be all about mom and dad. There’s not a baby boy on planet earth that wouldn’t love to have a room decorated in snips and snails and puppy dog tails. Bugs, sailboats and pirates are also still rated very high on the list of stuff that baby boys like and for every item in the top 10 of that list, chances are that if you will put your mind to it that you can come up with a very cute theme for your baby boy’s nursery. The bottom line is to create a room that is safe, fun and attractive. And you can find a way to say just a little something about the family that loves the little guy in the room I'm sure that he will love that, too.
