Sports Theme Nursery Room Colors
Here are a few ideas for choosing a great color scheme for your sports nursery:
If you're going for a vintage feel, stick to whites, creams and caramels with splashes of burgundy or blue.
If you want to include lots of sport memorabilia, a sports field palette of green and beige makes a great background.
A great way to choose your colors is to use your favorite team's logo as a starting point.
Sports Theme Nursery Coordinating Items
Give your sports nursery theme a kick by mixing in some of these coordinating elements:
Team caps, shirts and flags.
Mitts, bats and balls.
Posters of famous players.
Other licensed merchandise.
You can decide to go with a general all star sports theme or concentrate on one sport or a favorite team.
Here are a few different sports themes that I have seen in nurseries over the years to give you some inspiration:
Sports Nursery Theme Ideas for Decorating
A vintage sports nursery is really effective and easy to create. Include old battered mitts, bats and balls and vintage posters of famous players. Put old baseball card sets and other collectibles on display.
If you want to go for a cartoon type sports nursery, you can base your theme on Snoopy and Charlie Brown heading out to the ball game. There are plenty of Snoopy crib bedding sets that are just perfect for this nursery decorating idea. Mickey Mouse and Goofy also make great sporting pals!
If you are feeling creative, there are lots of great sports baby nursery theme ideas for painting a mural on your walls. Here are few of the things you can paint:
A few famous players or players from your favorite team.
A view of the spectators in the stands.
Your favorite team's logo.
A baseball or football pitch or a hockey ice rink.
A player's locker with shirts hanging inside and a bat or hockey stick standing at the bottom.
Team shirts and caps.
Bats, mitts and balls lying in the grass or bouncing through the air.
Packets of popcorn, peanuts and hotdogs.
If you don't want to paint you can jazz up your baby nursery easily by using sports theme wall decals instead.
Here are a few other ideas:
Paint a checkered flag on either side of the wall with your baby's name in between.
Paint your favorite team flag and replace the team name with your baby's.
Paint a large baseball or football and paint your baby's name across it as if it had been signed there by a famous player.
Hollow out old balls and hang them on the ends of your curtain rods as finials.
Buy a real ball and sign it with your baby's name.
Hang team shirts and caps from knobs on the wall.
Drill holes through an old bat, thread wiring through it and turn it into a lamp stand.
Create your own belly cast and decorate it like a soccer or baseball.
A great idea for a more contemporary nursery is to paint your sports memorabilia, like balls and caps, all the same color as silhouettes. You can do this in almost any color.
And last but not least, make sure you include some storybooks about sporting greats on the bookshelf. Share the glory days with your baby while you curl up on the couch together.
