Nursery Wall Decor Ideas

That time you’re expecting a new life into the world is special, and part of the joy is creating a space for your infant that’s as imaginative and homey as possible. Don’t hold back on vibrant colors and whimsical themes.

Here are some fun ideas for crafting a nursery that your newborn will feel right at home in:

Under the Sea

Dive below the surface to give your nursery wall decor an exciting — yet relaxing — splash of cool ocean blue.

 

These underwater creatures are sure to add colorful life and flair into any nursery. Place the canvas art for kids rooms side-by-side, or play with spacing and angles to achieve your desired look.

Starry Night

Beautify your little one’s room with a cascading array of the moon and stars. It’s perfect for girls and boys room wall decor. Many craft supply stores sell an additive to paint that makes it glow in the dark at night, while looking normal during the day as it absorbs light. Painting a starscape on the ceiling is the perfect nightlight for a nursery. Not only that, but it helps maintain a dim glow when you need to check on them at night. No stubbing your toe or tripping on a toy.

If you’re not on board painting, then opt for some glow-in-the-dark kids room wall decals.

What could be more perfect to accompany the glowing stars than wall art that celebrates restful, dreamy sleep?

Forest in the Trees Decals

Having a forest backdrop is very common for nurseries, as it evokes a calming aura—plus, trees are a comforting element that signifies growth and development.

By using vinyl stickers or decals, you can instantly transform your nursery into a forested sanctuary.

Play With Letters and Names

Having your kid’s name above the crib (or somewhere in the room) solidifies it as their personal space—even if they don’t yet realize it. Plus, it’s also a stylish focal point when entering the nursery.

Play around with textures, colors and font for limitless options to make it magical.

One thing’s for sure—this chart will show you they definitely grow up too fast.
