When thinking about the theme for their child's nursery decor, parents naturally gravitate towards something soothing, calm, and serene, so it's no surprise that nature is mentioned time and time again. From cloud nursery decor to rainbow nursery decor, we've been taking inspiration from the beauty of nature for decades for our homes, but no room seems to lend itself to this more than a nursery.
