We keep seeing plants used in all of the latest home decor trends. This is especially true for nurseries, where creating a warm, inviting, and stimulating environment is crucial for the development and well-being of your little one. We have seen plants being used in some of the cutest nursery themes - here are some of our favorites!


Junglified Nurseries

The best plants to pair with this green, lush aesthetic are tropical plants like Palms and Bird of Paradise Plants! Palms come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, and their lush foliage provides an exotic feel to your jungle oasis. The Bird of Paradise plant is known for its vibrant blooms in shades of orange, yellow, and red that stand out against the green leaves and offer a pop of color to any space. These large and statement-making plants will help create the illusion of being in a tropical rainforest, making for a fun and imaginative nursery for any child.


Boho Chic

A Boho-themed nursery should have a relaxed and eclectic feel, making it perfect for beautiful leafy greens like the Fiddle Leaf Fig plant. The large, violin-shaped leaves of this popular houseplant give off a carefree and bohemian vibe that matches your Boho style room perfectly. Large green statement pieces will not only add greenery to the room, but also provide a backdrop for colorful accents, textured rugs, and other Boho decor items.


Flower Power


For a Flower filled nursery, plants like the Peace Lily and Bromeliad are fun choices. These plants are known for their beautiful blooms in shades of white, pink, and red, adding a pop of color to the room. The peace lily has lush green leaves that are perfect for filling out a corner or an empty wall. Bromeliads come in a variety of shapes and sizes and their bright blooms will give a tropical and bold feel to your flower-themed nursery, adding unique texture among other blooms.

Fun Fairy Tale


Who doesn't love escaping to a fantasy world? A nursery based around fun fantastical stories should be filled with enchanting and whimsical elements, making the fun, fast-growing Pothos plant a great choice. Place Pothos on a bookshelf or in a hanging basket, to give the room a touch of magic and wonder. They are known for their long and lush trailing vines, making them the perfect plant for a fairy-tale inspired space. Other fun plants such as the Spider Plant or Snake Plant can also be incorporated, with their unique shapes and interesting textures adding to the fairy tale ambiance.

Baby Botanicals


Looking for cute and petit? Create a peaceful and serene environment with ferns and succulents. Ferns come in a variety of shapes and sizes, making them great for a variety of placements. Their interesting textures are great for sparking interest in your little one, too! Succulents are low maintenance, easy to care for and come in many unique shapes, adding more fun visuals and natural beauty to your baby botanicals-themed nursery.
