Baby rooms and animals go hand-in-hand, but the animal-themed nurseries of today are truly special and sweet. One popular critter theme to consider is the fox! Foxes aren’t just cute and cuddly, they’re also cunning animals that—crucially—bring a fun pop of color to the baby’s room. And, with a few strategic decor details, a fox nursery is easy to execute for a girl or boy. Here are a few of our favorite fox nursery ideas...

Coordinating crib sheets and changing pad covers are a seamless way to bring in the fox theme for this nursery. Not only are they cute and easy to pull off, but you can change these details out later as Baby grows, much more easily than wall art, rugs, and other large fixtures.

Themed nursery art is always a good idea when you’ve committed to a concept you love and want to decorate the nursery around. We are all about little framed foxes on the walls in the baby’s room to create color, interest, and a sense of fresh and youthful fun.

This girly fox nursery proves that practically any theme can be tailored to a more masculine or feminine interpretation with the right colors and details. The pastel fox stuffy, pink mobile, and simple basket at the foot of the crib are all we need here to include the woodland concept in a very saccharine space.
