While some people scour Pinterest for the raddest vinyl prints to hang in their dorm room, others are in search of the chicest wall decals for their baby’s nursery. Whatever stage of life you’re in, pretty things to look at never really grow old. There’s something special about walking into a baby’s room that’s decorated with small, beautiful details that parents love and that babies will, well, appreciate someday. Plus, for parents, seeing a giraffe decal or galaxy photograph above their little one’s crib does make the daily diaper-changing grind a bit more cheerful.
When it comes to picking out artwork for your baby’s room, you basically have free rein — those newbs don’t quite have a specific style of their own just yet. So, really, anything goes. From animals to constellation systems and dinosaurs to florals, you can’t go wrong once you put yourself up to this creative task. If you tend towards minimalism, keep it simple: Hang your baby’s footprint or spell their name in plain wood. Grays and yellows are great for avoiding gender-stereotypical colors, if that’s your jam. But ultimately, your artwork will do the talking — and set the tone for the entire room. For more ideas on affordable nursery artwork, we’ve rounded up our favorites, ahead.
