Welcome to Baby Sage’s Boho Floral Nursery! This boho floral nursery has woodland forest vibes, soft tones and unique touches. With handmade art from small Etsy shops, and custom wallpaper, we are so happy with how this Boho Floral Nursery turned out!
Baby Sage’s nursery came together exactly as I pictured, and I could not be more excited to share a full tour with you today! I started gathering inspiration and putting together a mood board for this very early on in my pregnancy. As I’ve said before, I was so sure that we were expecting a girl (even before we found out at the gender reveal party)!
Creating this nursery felt like a fun way to celebrate becoming parents while preparing for our baby girl to arrive. We didn’t start putting the nursery together until well into my second trimester, so everything came together quite quickly! I wanted the room to fit our aesthetic for the rest of the house, which is welcoming and calming.
Read on for a full walk through of our Boho Floral Nursery and all the fun pieces that we chose to fill it with! A special thank you to Matt for being my partner in crime in putting this together, my Tio Tony for building the closet, and to both mine and Matt’s Moms for helping with finding photos and trinkets from our childhood to add to the room for a personal touch! Come inside, and let me show you around…
The focal point of the room, and the first thing that I picked out, was the wallpaper. This removable boho floral wallpaper features watercolour pastel flowers, feathers, and a dream catcher. I really like that it creates a statement, but isn’t too overwhelming or busy.
My favourite piece in the nursery is probably the wallpaper and monogrammed sign on the door. This sign on the door was custom made, and I just love how it turned out. Not to mention, I love baby girl’s name, and I feel so happy whenever I see it on the door. I hope that she has this sign to treasure for many years to come!
First I’m going to walk you through the changing station, since this is the first thing you will see when you come in the door. We decided to use this beautiful and affordable birch dresser instead of a more pricey change table. I love the look of it, and also that it will be functional for a long time.
These floating shelves are from a local Etsy shop! Funny enough, they ended up matching the dresser perfectly. We didn’t even plan that, but I think they look so nice together. I’ve decorated the floating shelves with a few items from Merely Me – a small Canadian business located in Toronto with a focus on natural organic and quality clothing for babies and toddlers. They also have some really fun toys! Use code: SAGE15 for 15% off your purchase at Merely Me! On the shelves, you will also see I have a bowl of pacifiers all ready to go, and a cute wooden camera toy (like Mama like daughter?) from another Etsy shop called Little Rose & Co.
To the left of the change table, I wanted to add in a little more storage in this corner. This White Rolling Cart from Ikea was the perfect solution. In the cart, I have stored diapers, diaper pail liners, baby wraps, and change pad liners.
This year more than ever before, it is SO important to support our small businesses, shop local, and spread kindness in our communities. As we approach the holiday season, I want to encourage you to think about how you can support your favourite small businesses, instead of large corporations. Let’s lean on each other to get through these challenging times! Below are a few small businesses that are featured in Baby Sage’s nursery. If you are expecting soon, or have a friend or family member who is expecting, be sure to check out these awesome Canadian shops!
As with any home makeover projects, the cost can add up quickly! My best tip for designing a beautiful nursery while sticking to a budget is to splurge on some of the must-have items or statement pieces, and add in some DIY items or second-hand things that are more cost effective. For example, the wallpaper we used was a little more costly, but we were able to find a beautiful crib on Kijiji that was second-hand and in mint condition. This saved us a lot of money! I also love this crib because it can be adjusted into a bed, so it will last for years to come.

This closet was part of the nursery that we had to completely overhaul and re-do to prepare for baby’s arrival. Luckily my Tio Tony was very helpful (you may remember he helped us our with our deck reno too)! He was able to build the cupboard storage for us, including the shelves and hangers. This design for this closet was actually inspired by this blog post I found on Pinterest! The middle section was pre-fabricated, and we purchased it here.
A few other details and pieces that really made this room come together are the ceiling light and super soft rug. I think they finish it off so nicely! This egg-shaped crystal light was something I picked up a few years ago from Lowes. I wasn’t able to find the exact link, but here is a very similar one! We have a philips hue light bulb in it, so it can be dimmed and change colours as well.
