When decorating a kid’s room, we often focus on color as a way to bring the room to life.  Not a bad thing, but let’s not miss out on the vibrancy decorating with texture can bring to a baby nursery or child’s room. Not only does texture bring that extra piece of visual dimension to your baby room decor, but it can be a fun and educational way to help your baby explore her world.

We love this textured pink bedding with fabric roses and ruffles from Land of Nod. The matching textured pillow and curtainsare used creatively and beautifully. It’s amazing how impactful a ruffle or two can be in bringing a whole new dimension to the fabrics and the room.

If you can't find bedding, try throw pillows. Remember this gorgeous handmade textured throw pillow by Decorati Designer Studio Raynaud Interiors? It is the highlight of the bedding with its powerful punch.

Another easy way to add texture is through floor rugs. Think soft and fluffy like this pale blue shag rug.  A beautiful color with a texture that pleases the eye and the little toes that walk across it. These rugs are not hard to find and come in soft colors like white, pink, and blue.  For the eco-friendly, green nursery consider going au natural with sisal and sea grass floor rugs. Great if you are seeking a neutral color, these rugs tend to be kind on the wallet.

Finally, these vinyl poufs from Zid Zid kids are cute, cuddly, and have a bit of a shine, another way to add visual texture to your child’s room.
