Fairy Tale Fairy Nursery Theme Ideas and Baby Room Decor

For your fairy nursery theme you will want to achieve a very bright, colorful (but not too bold) fresh look. Picture stepping through a magical doorway into a space filled with fantasy and enchantment.

Let your nursery be an airy light filled space filled with tranquility and wonder. Take a moment to stroll through the world that Mary Cicely Barker chose to paint in her famous illustrations of Flower Fairies.




In her drawings, pastels and colors of spring set the tone just as they should in your baby's nursery theme.

The nursery furnishings will be the anchors for this fairy nursery theme castle in the clouds so no darkly stained woods are called for in this bedroom. If you must work with darker wood tones, make up for it with voluminous clouds of gossamer fabrics in your fairy nursery theme window treatments and the crib canopy.

The decor should make you think of floating above the floor leaving the cares and concerns of mere mortals outside the nursery door. This will be an excellent theme for crisp white nursery accessories. Not all the nursery furniture must be white but light airy colors will work best for your fairy nursery theme especially in a girl's fairy baby nursey.

Take a do it yourself attitude and hand paint some of your fairies yourself. For a fine fairy baby room, give our wee folk a touch of glitter on their fluttering, gossamer wings, tiny gowns of flower petals and butterfly wings in soft pastel colors.

For a baby boy's themed nursery painting should take a more neutral color paint and use more masculine nature colors. Paint leaves, woody textures, and leathers instead of the flowers that we used for our feminine counterparts' clothing. There are loads of stuff you can use for a boy's fairy bedroom without making it look too frilly or feminine!

Pose some of your fairies busy at work and others soaking up the bright yellow sun in the garden.

Include gnomes with a backpack full of twigs for sale. Picture a trouble-making big nosed goblin lurking in a tree. Don't forget the troll under the tollbridge waiting for his next victim!

Here's an idea! Give the little boy fairy some forest tools or a bow and arrow and quiver with a mischievous look. Give the male fairies pointed ears and leave off the wings to indicate they are the men of the forest.

Don't forget that a set of fairy wallies, stencils, decals and sticker books are always excellent resources for helping to customize our nursery furniture and wall decor.

Fascinating fact: In the world of the wee folk pixies, elves, wood sprites, and leprechauns are actually males.

Display some fine collectible fairy figurines on floating shelves Hang delicate fairy nursery theme framed art prints on the nursery wall. Choose light gauzy fabric for your window treatments and you will have put together a fine fairy room for your baby.

This is a room that can grow up with a little girl. Replace the fairy baby bedding set and crib with a toddler bed and your fairy nursery theme will look fresh and appropriate for years.
