Why to Choose an Arrow Theme Nursery

An arrow theme nursery is one of the latest trends when it comes to nursery design. Neutral colored nursery’s and boho nursery’s are both popular and arrows fit into both. 

  • Choosing an arrow nursery might give a nod to a Native American heritage.
  • You might be inspired by boho design ideas and that is why you would like to choose an arrow nursery.
  • Maybe you simply love designing and decorating with arrows.
  • Or you might be looking a bit deeper, and choosing your nursery theme because bringing this new life into the world is pointing you and your family in the right direction for growth, love, and maturity.

Whatever reason you are considering baby room ideas featuring arrows, I’m sure you will find inspiration and design ideas to utilize within this post.

Begin with Designing the Walls

When designing a nursery, start from the basics, the walls. Whether you opt for a fresh coat of paint, wallpaper, or an accent wall, this is the ideal place to begin your perfect design.

An arrow themed nursery is a great option if you’re expecting a baby boy and you can paint the walls a light baby blue color or neutral color. If you want an accent wall or prefer the entire room be wallpaper, try this blue arrow wallpaper.

Minimalist designs have taken the forefront of many nursery trends. A nice gender neutral arrow theme nursery is perfect for a minimalist design. Paint the walls a neutral color and add in a few unique print design ideas from Etsy.

Etsy is the best place to get custom wall art that is unique like the arrows below. Plus I adore supporting small business owners and their own Etsy shop.

If you have a crafty streak in you, you can head to your local Hobby Lobby for canvas and paint your own wall art as well. Arrows are pretty simple to paint so if you are in nesting mode or relish the idea of designing things for your baby yourself, you can try your hand at painting your own.

You can create something bright and bold with color blocks in the background and arrows in the foreground or paint something plain to match a neutral color scheme. You can design your very own gallery wall.

More Nursery Items

Most people have a changing table in their nursery as well. Whether you have a big piece of furniture that came with your crib set, add a changing table pad to the top of the dresser, or if you have a changing pad that you slide in and out as you need it you will love adding this pad cover to match your arrow theme.

Then consider other home decor items that will pull your theme together. An arrow lamp on the nightstand is a cute addition to any nursery, and perfect for when you want the light kept more low than the overhead lighting.

Or if you have a different vision, it is very simple to create your own design of curtains with custom fabric for your baby’s room. Curtains are probably one of the simplest things to sew yourself. You don’t even have to sew them if that isn’t within your skill set. You can use no-sew hemming tape and your iron instead.
