Take your baby’s room up, up, and away with a beautiful cloud theme that’s easy to pull off and effortlessly gender-neutral. While the moon and stars are beautiful (these space nursery ideas are proof!), we love the simple sweetness and blank color canvas of a cloudy nursery.

Conjuring a calm spring day, your little boy or girl’s walls and bed will be decked out in these pleasantly puffy motifs that are not only entertaining and fun to look at but just as ready to lull them peacefully to sleep at night or for naps.  

Here are some of our favorite finds to consider while putting together a cloud-theme nursery for your little girl or boy.

Every baby room needs a mirror—first, they help you create some super cute selfies with your baby in the early days. And, as your baby grows, you’ll want to show them their face in the mirror often, which helps teach them early social cues and strengthens their self-esteem.

A puffy cloud rug is the perfect punctuation for your cloudy nursery, and the fact that this one can be thrown right in the washing machine gives it a major edge. Babies are messy—but you’ll be prepared!

Use it in SNOO, and once your bub graduates, hang it from the nursery ceiling for a piece of cloud décor that will enchant well beyond the baby days.
