Blue has long been the traditional choice for a baby boy room, but it’s the 21st century, and hard and fast gender norms are going the way of the diaper pin! A blue nursery is a beautiful choice for any gender. Case in point? These stunning blue nursery ideas.

A sweet classic design is Baby’s to enjoy with a lovely blue nursery wallpaper like this one, toile fabric throughout, and elegant curtains in a complementary shade. The white crib and lighting fixture let this blend of blues shine for a nursery that wows.

Have fun with a wallpaper choice (or busy area rug) that speaks volumes in not just color but print. These whimsical walls are creative and fun for a perfectly styled blue nursery. (The monogrammed pillow doesn’t hurt, either!).

Boy rooms don’t get to have all the fun! Consider a little girl’s space decked out in blush and robin’s egg—it’s absolutely sweet and charming, effortlessly feminine while not totally expected.

This elegant nursery is what design dreams are made of. A bold wallpaper and matching fabric in the pouf and pillows create drama, while the ball-strung lighting fixture and lush curtains fill out the space. A variety of prints and textures can do wonders in the nursery, and using blues it’s just perfection. 

Blue Ombre Nursery

Probably the most inherently childlike room on our list, this bright blue nursery looks like such a fun space to grow up in. Modern dots on the walls, an ombre throw and window shade, and that enviable blue motorcycle in the corner all ramp up the cool factor for a truly unique blue baby room.

The deepest navy is a gorgeous choice for a modern boho nursery. This blue lends easily to neutrals and even, as seen here, bright green accents. Bring your bohemian elements in against a navy blue accent wall and watch the room come together flawlessly. 

Blue Pattern-Mixed Nursery
