So you’re about to bring a new little bundle of joy home soon and out of all of the things this newborn gets a say in (food, diaper change and sleep,) how the nursery gets decorated is not one of them. This special room must be a comfortable space for your baby to sleep and a space that is also warm and welcome to you, since you will be spending the majority of your time here. Besides the essentials, when it comes to nursery décor now is the time to get creative. There are many design elements that go into creating a stylish nursery and making a space that is just right. One of our favorite nursery accent pieces right now is… wall art!
The walls of your nursery are blank canvases ready to be adorned. Wall art is not only a way to fill empty space but is also, a great way to set the mood. When we think nursery we think pastel colors, ABC’s and cutesy animal characters. Wall art can harness all of these different elements and you don’t have to be limited to just one design. Have fun with mix and matching your pieces. There are also tons of different ways to display your art. So it’s safe to say that with wall art, the design options are endless and it can be hard to make a decision. Today, we’ve put together a list of fun wall art ideas for kids that will hopefully make your decision that much easier!
Type of Wall Art
Since you have most of the say in the décor of this nursery, you definitely have room to be creative especially since there are so many design options to choose from! These options are going to provide you with different textures and offer unique feels for the room.
Wood Wall Art
For the newborns, we like to think of innocence and a charming soft beauty. To imitate this feel into the nursery your best bet would be to design a piece of wood wall art. The wood adds a natural touch to your décor and will give the space that extra special touch that it deserves.
A framed canvas is great for a nursery room because it is an easy yet stunning option. A very adorable idea is to print three canvases and then hang them in a row. It will fill empty space and add a sophisticated feel to the room.
Your little bundle of joy will surely love spending time in their space when the walls are embellished with life-sized wall decals. Blow up an adorable and versatile little ballerina or old truck filled with tools. The options are endless and trust us, the wall decals will add a three-dimensional feel to the room that can’t be imitated by anything else.
We know it’s all in the details and no matter what design you choose for your wall art, what really matters is what you print on it! These are our favorite ideas for nursery wall décor.
ABC’s & 123’s
This is a classic art piece for any nursery and will remind you and your little one to go through the alphabet and numbers, as you get ready for bed. Your precious little one will get a head start to learning and in style! Shutterfly’s Art Library makes it easy to pick the perfect ABC design to fit the theme of your nursery just right!
“I love you to the moon and back”
What’s not to love about this saying? This phrase expresses love in a measurable (not to mention, huge) amount of distance. These are the little things that your newborn will remember you saying all throughout their childhood. Print your favorite phrase and hang it above the crib to remind your little one of the strong love you will always have for them.
Don’t just stick with phrases or letters and numbers. Pick a theme and go with it. Whether it’s animals, trucks or tiny ballerinas, the pictures will be another element to enjoy. Not to mention, there are many charming character designs, patterns and drawings to choose from.
Pick a color scheme and try to stay with it. This is where you add energy and interest into the room. Colors are also a great way to set the mood of the room. In your nursery we recommend going with soft pastel colors in the wall art you choose. Think cheery, tranquil and delicate-just like your little one.
Your nursery is sure to turn out beautifully and become a perfect space for you and your little one. You won’t mind changing diapers as much when you have alluring wall art to get lost in! On the other hand, let’s hope your little one gets lost in these fun designs and dozes off to sleep when it’s time for bed. On top of all of this, remember to have fun creating your little one’s nursery and make it reflect you and your precious little baby.
