When looking for nursery décor ideas, there are plenty of favourites from Boho chic to jungle-inspired, bright colours to Disney. But one theme we think is going to take off this year is cloud décor, thanks to the lovely Molly-Mae Hague.

After the influencer and ex-Love Islander revealed her little girl's name in a nursery pic on Instagram, interior lovers flocked to the internet to share their adoration of the cloud lighting featured above baby's crib.

We're big fans too. The cloud aesthetic creates a calming, dreamy space for baby's bedtime, great for inspiring relaxation and rest. Not to mention, the theme is also gender-neutral, making it perfect for both little boys and girls. Fitting into the same design field as those nurseries inspired by nature and neutral colours that have boomed in popularity in recent years, it's a simple yet effective choice for your little bundle of joy.

Without further ado, we've shared some adorable (and affordable) cloud nursery décor ideas that will create the perfect atmosphere for baby to doze off to dreamland.
