Decorating your baby’s room with wall art is a great way to personalize the space and add points of visual interest to the nursery. To help you create an eye-catching display, we at Pottery Barn Kids have compiled our top nursery wall art ideas. Keep reading for five unique ways to decorate your nursery walls.
Don’t be afraid to mix-and-match artwork and other decorative elements. Incorporate different colors, patterns and textures into your wall art to create a more visually-interesting display. Another way to make your gallery wall more dynamic is to add functional elements like floating shelves or cubbies. Use the shelves and cubbies to display illustrations, photos and mementos of your baby’s milestones. The key to creating a harmonious wall display is to stick to a simple color scheme. You’ll also want to consider the “temperature” of the colors you’re using. Warm colors like orange, red and yellow will result in a visually stimulating wall, while cool and neutral colors like beige, grey and white will help create a more tranquil environment.
Creating a dynamic wall display can turn an ordinary nursery into an energizing and inspiring space. Use the tips above to add a touch of creativity to your baby’s room.

Displaying your baby’s name on the wall in block letters is cute, but consider other creative ways to display your baby’s name that tie into the nursery’s theme. You could, for example, create a name sign out of seashells, driftwood or pine cones. Decals are another option that is easy to reposition and won’t damage your walls. Other options for personalizing your baby’s room are murals, stenciled quotes and family handprints. If you’d prefer to let your baby personalize the room as he or she grows, consider painting the wall with chalkboard paint.

Select a theme to use as inspiration for your wall decorating. Although many parents choose to center the theme of their baby’s nursery around a popular cartoon character or a children’s book or movie, parents’ hobbies can also serve as interesting themes for a baby room. If you and your partner like to travel, for example, you can decorate the nursery walls with photos of past trips or artwork reflecting the animals and landmarks of a specific destination. Sports memorabilia also make for great wall art. You can even use your favorite team’s colors as your nursery’s color scheme. Once you’ve decided on a theme, shop for artwork, prints, decals and motifs that match the theme of the nursery.

Another important consideration in choosing the best placement for your wall art is your baby’s safety. While wall art hung over a changing table or dresser may not pose much of a risk to a newborn, it could be pulled down by curious toddler. Avoid accidents by placing softer items on the lower half of the wall and heavy items on the upper half. If you’re placing the wall art over a changing table or dresser, leave at least eight inches between the bottom of the display and the top of the furniture.
Decide on a color scheme for your wall art. The easiest way to do this is to use a color wheel, which is a tool interior designers use to create color palettes. A monochromatic scheme will consist of different hues of the same color. These hues are located side-by-side on the color wheel. A complementary color pairs two color families that are opposite each other on the color wheel (blue and orange or purple and yellow, for example). If you can’t decide on one, or even two colors, you can try a triadic scheme, which uses colors that are evenly spaced around the color wheel. An example of a triadic color scheme is green, orange and purple.

One of the most challenging parts of creating an interesting gallery or statement wall is figuring out where to place the different decorative elements in relation to one another. An easy way to design your wall is to choose a focal piece around which to place the other pieces. This focal piece can be a photograph, a painting, a plaque or even a stuffed animal. When choosing the placement of your wall art, don’t forget to take into account any interesting features of the room. Built-in shelving and bookcases can be interesting focal points and the right artwork will make these features really stand out.
