Little boys love puppies, and a wonderful way to celebrate the special bond between a boy and his dog is with a room devoted to pups! Today we’re sharing 10 ideas for a puppy inspired nursery that’s as cute as can be!
A Classic Color Palette
The best place to start on a puppy inspired nursery is with a piece for inspiration (like a pattern, a pillow or an accessory) and a color palette. For this pup inspired space, we went with a primary color palette of yellow, red and blues. A classic palette seemed fitting for a classic puppy bond.
Use these colors throughout your space. You can go bold with a bright crib, dresser or changing tabl. You can also add the colors in subtly with accessories, window coverings and floor coverings on white or gray carpets and walls.
Dog Inspired Decor
When you’re designing a room around your favorite animal or pet, don’t be afraid to go with graphic prints and mixed patterns!
Looking for a way to add some interest to one of the walls or inside some shelving? Add puppy inspired wallpaper with a fun little pattern! A series of dog prints for the wall would look wonderful above the crib or changing table, and a cute puppy mobile will lull your little man to sleep each night.
You can include dog inspired decor in less obvious ways, too. Consider a dalmation print rug for in front of the dresser or puppy tail coat hooks on the wall next to the closet. Get creative with this puppy inspired nursery!
It’s All the in Accessories
Your little one can have a room that’s inspired by his best fluffy buddy, but you can take it one step further with toys and clothes inspired by pups as well!
Plush puppies are a must in this room. And they’re even better when they come with socks for your little one to wear – two birds with one stone!
He’ll look so precious at bathtime with a puppy inspired hooded robe complete with ears and a little tail – so sweet!
And you can’t forget about the necessary burp cloth and pacifier clip! This adorable set is perfect for your little man and matches his room theme and color palette to a T.
