You’ve got the essentials and the main interior design of their nursery in the works, but what is the best way to tie everything together while bringing the space to life?
To get you inspired, we turned to Décor Aid interior designers for their takes on the best types of artwork for any nursery, so they’ll be comforted in stylish design.
Mobiles are a classic must-have for any nursery room décor, but what feels so fresh for right now are some of the more modern, streamlined options that are sure to pair well with the simplicity of Scandinavian design and minimalism.
For an elegant take on mobiles, look for pieces that are simple in spirit while evoking the pop-art appeal of the ‘60s for a completely cool pick-me-up in their nursery.
A Classic Mirror
A classic mirror will make for a wise investment as they grow as it won’t need to be switched out as time passes, and it will work to make their nursery appear larger and brighter.
A Macrame Wall-Hanging
Though they are seriously on-trend, there’s no denying the cool factor a macrame wall hanging can lend to any room, even a nursery.
You can find an endless variety of affordable macrame wall art easily online as they’ll help make their nursery feel more warm and inviting while adding some much-needed visual interest.
Use Books To Your Advantage
While the nursery featured above has a lot going on visually, our favorite take away from it are the rows of simple shelves designed to highlight their favorite books – meaning that to get this look, you don’t even need to go out and source new art if there’s a handful of books of theirs you visually appreciate.
Create A Gallery Wall
Just like you would in any room in your home, create a visually arresting gallery wall in their nursery that’ll provide room-defining prints and patterns, and help you work from a theme.
To get the look right, frame pieces in various sizes or in the exact same size repeated for continuity, and look for art prints that have a common theme to tie everything together.
Add A Banner
When it comes to nursery room art, keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be permanent or expensive to evoke a well-judged and luxurious feel.
We’re loving the stylish and on-trend effect that interesting banners lend a nursery while upping the energy of the space with ease. Even better is the fact that once you tire of a banner, it’ll only take a few minutes to stow away. And it won’t be a fleeting investment that you spent a small fortune on.
Bring In A Mural
Easy to source online at relatively low prices, a dynamic mural will work to quickly help define the space while adding much-needed drama and a bold visual anchor that will work to tie everything in the nursery together.
The key here is to source a mural that you’ll enjoy seeing daily and one that won’t come off as too childish as they grow.
Wallpaper always makes for an instant way to add character and life in any room, and when it comes to nursery room ideas, we suggest going for a timeless, gender-neutral wall covering.
By doing this, you’ll guarantee that you’ll be investing in a wall covering that will grow with them, rather than having to change out patterns and prints that they’ll eventually find too immature, or not representative of their tastes and hobbies.
Add Floating Shelves
Just like we suggested with their illustrated books, use their beautifully designed toys to add visual interest throughout their nursery.
Even better when housed in an equally interesting shelving unit like the structure shaped ones pictured above.
Our interior designers often use the genius stuffed animal heads featured above as a starting point when considering unexpected takes on nursery room art that are certain to delight.
The look fresh, playful, add a sense of intriguing character to the nursery, and best of all, were probably sourced inexpensively. Now, how’s that for a clever nursery room décor idea that no one else will have?
Add Some Needlepoint
By now it should be more than clear that when it comes to expressive nursery décor art, there’s several savvy directions you can go when looking to decorate a nursery with a unique spirit.
If you aren’t blessed with extra time to pick up a needlepoint hobby, you can easily source interesting and playful needlepoint additions for your nursery that are sure to be affordable statement-makers.
