Farmhouse is a design approach that's warm, calming, and cozy at its core, qualities you undoubtedly want for your baby's nursery. There are plenty of ways to weave farmhouse charm into a baby nursery: through carefully-chosen antiques or family heirlooms, white color palettes, well-worn wood finishes, and more.
1. It’s all about plaid.
When it comes to any baby nursery idea, you'll no doubt want to bring personality into the room. One effective way to do that is through wallpaper, preferably in an eye-catching print that adds character to the space. Joanna Gaines is famous for choosing plaid wallpaper for her interiors, and you can capture the same look in the nursery, too. Ashlee of Little Lovelies is showing us how it's done with this black and white setup.
2. Include sweet flea market finds.
As long as they're not within reach of baby, you can easily decorate with flea market finds in the nursery. Gather up some beloved farmhouse gems (or track down a family heirloom or two). Place them on the dresser or on the wall, which is what Lynzy of Lynzy & Co. did in this vintage-inspired nursery.
3. Create a warm atmosphere.
4. Consider old-school touches.
5. Adhere to a dreamy white palette.
In the land of farmhouse baby nursery ideas, there's one color that reigns supreme above all others: white. It's clean, classic, and harkens back to traditional spaces. We can't get enough of the bright white shiplap walls in this nursery by Julie of Little Sparrow Co., complemented by furniture showcasing a dark wood finish for added contrast, floor-to-ceiling drapery puddled on the floor at the window, and a floral wreath hung on the wall, adding a delicate pop of greenery.
6. Incorporate distressed wood finishes.
7. Weave in fun and whimsy.
When creating any nursery idea, we advise never taking things too seriously, and this is certainly true of a farmhouse nursery. While perusing your Pinterest feed, keep an eye out for light and whimsical pieces that still have farmhouse flair, like wall art or toys depicting farm animals. These elements are spotlighted in this adorable nursery created by Leanna of Life by Leanna.
