When you think of baby boy rooms, you might automatically think of pale blue and white. No doubt it’s a classic that isn’t going anywhere! Heck, I decorated my son’s baby boy room decor in that exact colorway: navy blue, white, and french blue! It is still one of my favorite rooms! But if you want to do something a little different, the possibilities are endless! Here are several themes for baby boy nurseries that are absolutely classic and darling!

UNIQUE BABY BOY NURSERY THEMES
Blue and White Bunnies Nursery: For my son’s baby boy nursery room decor, I wanted to go with the classics–blue and white. I knew I wanted a bold blue and white wallpaper, so when I found our blue and white wallpaper (our’s was discontinued–but this is exactly the same!) I knew I had to have it! See the entire baby boy room decor here!
Make sure you don’t forget anything on your baby registry–see all my favorites here in one easy spot!
My son loves all things animal, so in addition to the blue and white bunny wallpaper, we added our favorite animal prints in inexpensive Ikea frames. See all the sources here including how to make the DIY window valance!
NURSERY IDEAS FOR BOYS
Blue and White Themed Boy Nurseries:
When designing our boy nursery, I found myself gravitating to French blue and white, and navy rooms on Pinterest, which helped me decide that I wanted a classic yet bold wallpaper to add some fun to our nursery. To keep it budget-friendly, we opted to only wallpaper one out of the three walls, but these rooms below can give you an idea of some more amazing blue and white wallpapered boy nursery ideas!
Celerie Kemble’s preppy blue and white nursery is classic and unexpected at the same time. I love how she painted the angled ceiling to echo the linen shade, and that blue and white wallpaper is amazing!
Francois Renovate’s also played on a similar palette with this gorgeous light blue wallpaper! I love the board and batten installation–it keeps the room so airy (plus it’s more robust for little fingers!)
Amy Berry knocks it out of the park with this beautiful blue and white wallpaper nursery complete with the swankiest lucite crib I have ever seen. I might just have to move in 🙂
And can we just top a moment and appreciate this gorgeous blue and white buffalo check wall by my friend, Addie Gundry!
Kate Smith’s preppy blue and white nursery has several of my absolute favorite fabrics!

Our first nursery in our old apartment was blue and white with pops of pink. I was absolutely sure that our first was a boy (we waited to find out the gender with all three of my kids) and wanted our nursery to reflect our love of sailing, so we made a nautical nursery that ended up working great for a girl too!
