Decorating your nursery — especially for your first child — might be the most personal home decor project you take on. You’re building a nest to protect and soothe the little one you’ve been dreaming of, so of course you’ll want to create the coziest, most peaceful environment possible. But you may also want the room to grow along with your child.
That’s why I love the idea of a nursery accent wall. It creates a cheerful, soft focal point and provides an anchor wall for a big-kid bed in a few years. And if your little one outgrows the design, you have to change only one wall, which cuts down on project time and expense.
Here are 12 dreamy accent walls to inspire your baby’s room.
Jungle creatures in a blue and taupe jigsaw pattern create this modern wallpaper from DwellStudio. When using a busy print like this, keep other walls and furnishings simple so the room doesn’t feel busy.
The exception: a stripey rug in coordinating colors.
Give your baby’s room vintage flair with foil-painted paper in a cheerful hue. The nursery designers at Draw Me A Sheep added vintage-inspired accents, like the bamboo-textured crib, to pull the look together.
A geometric pattern creates an accent wall that will grow with baby. It also offers an opportunity to mix patterns, as Beckwith Interiors did by adding chevron-patterned bedding by Sweet Jojo Desi.
