Bring nature inside with this cute bird-themed nursery inspiration.

If you plan on designing a bird-themed nursery for your little one, watch this video for all the decoration ideas for your baby's room to take flight.

Whimsical Nursery

Sarah Pope designed this beautiful room for baby Annalee. She found inspiration for the wisteria branches above the changing table from a Land of Nod catalog.

Attention Grabber

Pope kept the decor simple yet purposeful. The bird and flower arrangement by the crib gives the area a fun focal point.

Cohesive Design

Pope painted the branches and frames white so that they would work better with the nursery. The colors of the birds complement the grey walls.

Bird Collage

We love the artwork over the crib: It uses the bird theme without being overwhelming and works well with the blue wall.

Peacock Pillow

The bird pillow and rocking chair work well together without one overshadowing the other.

Flying High

Distract your baby from his diaper changing with these colorful creatures flying overhead. They fit right in with the green drawers and chair and the robin's egg blue wall.

Homemade Touch

Have Baby's older siblings and cousins draw their own bird artwork for the nursery.

Picture Perfect

This framed bird brings the theme subtly to life. Once you're finished with the nursery, it would work well in an office setting.
