6 Fun Decorative Painting Nursery Ideas

Inspirational Nursery Ideas

It’s finally summertime, and after a long and very cold winter it seems that many cuddly couples got a visit from the stork! So, whether your bundle of joy was planned or a great surprise, here are a few ideas we loved for fun baby room décor and wall designs.

Circus, Circus!!

Circus, Circus!! Nursery IdeasWe love this understated circus theme for a baby’s room. (see more on Houzz) The soft gray stripes are reminiscent of the big top tent without overwhelming your little. Bright pops of color add interest to the room. The room also uses space efficiently with the chest of drawers doubling as a changing table. This is a great room to transition your baby into adolescence.


Fit for a Prince

Fit for a Prince –  Nursery Ideas for a Baby BoyA few years back, we were able to create this masterpiece above an adorable little boy’s crib. We crafted, a custom hand-painted crest for this family’s little guy in the colors of his nursery. It was such a versatile idea it could have worked for a boy or a girl.


Pink Chevron Fun!

Pink Chevron Fun! – Nursery Ideas for a GirlThe chevron pattern is all the rage. Why not use it on the walls of your nursery? The colors they’ve chosen to alternate are great and really make the room pop. We love all the white accessories that keep this room dainty and girly.


Fun with Chalk Paint and Chalk Board Paint

Fun with Chalk Paint and Chalk Board Paint – Nursery IdeasBoth of these rooms use chalk paint in an innovative way. This first room done in green chalk board paint was created by our artists for a client’s young son who was super athletic. We created a park sports theme of children swinging, running and jumping around the entire room. The son liked that he could draw all over the walls. His father liked it because it could be wiped off without a problem.


Fun with Chalk Paint and Chalk Board Paint – Nursery IdeasThis second room we found on Houzz. This designer used black chalk paint on specific areas of the nursery to create a space for the parents to display their child’s name and favorite quotes. As the baby grows up, he or she will be able to draw and create their own art... right on the walls of their own room. What a great space to call home!


Argyle – It’s not just for socks!

Argyle Pattern – Nursery IdeasWho doesn’t love argyle! What a great idea for an accent wall in a child’s room. It can be done in so many color combos the choices are limitless. Argyle is such a timeless pattern it would be great for any age child. We love the bold palette used in this room, it looks so fresh and clean.
