We never get tired of looking at fun and playful wall decor for kids which is why we love looking at designs from Trendy Peas.

Founded by creative lead Patricia Cancado and business lead Raquel Kohler, these design-minded moms in Norfolk, VA who have known each other since childhood couldn’t find modern nursery wall décor to decorate their babies' rooms at a price they liked. So after much searching, they decided to do it themselves starting Trendy Peas in an effort to bring us unique, contemporary baby décor style at an affordable price. Trendy Peas offers their design collection as wall prints, wall canvases, and wall decals as well as paper goods like baby announcements and stationery designed to please both parents and little ones.

Above are some highlights from their collection. Part of their safari line, this chic and contemporary “G is for Giraffe” safari themed wall print comes with coordinating “E is for elephant” and “D is for deer” wall prints. Their cleverly named “Animal Talk” category has a “hooting” owl or “tweeting” bird on a branch. And, their shapes collection has bright and vibrant geometric wall prints featuring circles and dots, triangles, and squares with which to decorate a cheerful gender neutral nursery.

They also have a new product line of beautiful fabric wall decals. This gorgeous large tree wall decal of modern design and modern eco-friendly materials is an abstract display with over-sized leaves, pretty green patterns, a striking gray trunk and a cute blue bird.  They also have a bird on a branch fabric wall decal.

Note that all of their wall art can be purchased as a wall canvas or a print. They also have a collection of wall prints that can be personalized with your child’s name.

For the dual design and cost-conscious mom, Trendy Peas is offering free shipping on orders over $50.

Jeeto is a Los Angeles based design company dedicated to creating contemporary-styled products that enrich environments through imagery and imagination. Inspired by pop art, vintage styles, and modernism, Jeeto’s iconography and imagery is indeed a contemporary art style all its own. The art canvases would not be out of place on the 4th Floor of the New York Museum of Modern Art (that is where works from famous modern artists like Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock are displayed) as they has that vintage, pop art, illustration style. Choose modern art styles with classic nursery or kid’s room themes such as monkey, giraffe, princess, fire truck, ladybug, or hippo wall canvases. Jeeto also has some less common kid's room themed images such as surfing, camp site, and panda canvases.  The colors used in the art are also on the modern side as they favor blues, oranges, and greys. Each piece of kid's wall art is triple silk screened onto museum quality canvas and stretched onto 2.5" pine frames for hanging.  You can get them in either small (18” x 24” inches) or large (30” x 40” inches). In addition to modern wall hangings for kids, Jeeto has a line of infant and toddler clothing and water bottles.  They also have a unique line of patches, stickers, and clothing dedicated to communicating allergy awareness.  Use cute graphics with phrases like “no peanuts, please” or “glutton free” to adorn the t-shirts, backpack, and lunch box of your allergy laden child. See here for a store locator of Jeeto’s products.

A (So Not) Neutral Nursery Theme September 06 2009

[caption id="attachment_533" align="aligncenter" width="512" caption="A (Not) Neutral Nursery Theme"]A (Not) Neutral Nursery Theme[/caption] When most of us think of a neutral nursery, we think beige, yellow, or green which can, frankly, look a little boring at times.  Since we all know the baby nursery is the most playful room in the house, it needs to be anything but boring.  That is why we love the idea of using bright and vibrant colors to make what could be described as neutral so 'not'. This crib is from Petit Tresor, a Los Angeles based baby furnishings company, and we think it is a brilliant example of an impossible-to-be-boring neutral baby room.  Great for a boy or girl's baby room, the blue, orange, yellow, and green color palette will make it feel like summer every day. We must warn you.  The price of the crib alone is a shocker ($1200).  If this is as hard to handle for you as it is for us, consider what you could do with some good white baby furniture and some great shades of paint.  We love how they dressed up the nursery with bears on the wall shelf and that cute giraffe - that giraffe wall decor piece is especially good.  Note that you need to do very little with wall color given the vibrancy of the color in the baby furniture.

Baby Nursery Decals in Cute Safari Theme September 06 2009

The safari theme is very popular in nursery decorating these days and it's easy to see why!  There are so many great animal motifs from which to choose.  These baby nursery decals for the wall from Fawn&Forest are just one of many designs from which to find inspiration. 

The collection comes with 34 animals including elephants, giraffes, birds, lions, tigers, bears, camels, ducks, and more.  Use all or mix-and-match to your liking.  These wall stickers come in other colors but they are not the standard nursery colors.  So, if you are looking for something a bit different, this may be right for you.  The brown pictured here will likely match most of the existing nursery decor palettes if you are looking for a safer bet. 

The wall graphics can be used to decorate a playroom or another area of your home where you are looking to add a playful touch.  The decals are removable and reusable and sell for a very reasonable $40.

Cute Baby Nursery Decals in Jungle Theme September 04 2009

[caption id="attachment_454" align="aligncenter" width="430" caption="Baby Nursery Decals in Jungle Scene"]Baby Nursery Decals in Jungle Theme[/caption] Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!  How precious are these baby nursery decals in this jungle nursery theme?  Found on etsy (another one of our favorite sites), seller ChickadeeVinyl has some awfully cute home decor designs.  This decal may be missing the bear but, hey, bears don't live in the jungle. And, this isn't Oz. This is your own personal baby safari. The nursery decal does have a giraffe, monkey, palm tree, and a super cute elephant.  It is just perfect if you are decorating a baby's room or are looking for unique wall decor for a kid's room. We love the chocolate brown and mint green color combo.  This is a great color scheme for decorating boys' rooms.  And, wall decals are a great DIY wall mural option. The decal measures 12"x50", is made of adhesive vinyl safe for walls, and comes in other nursery appropriate colors.  Best of all, ChickadeeVinyl says they have a total satisfaction guarantee.  This baby nursery decal for your wall sells for $35.  Be sure to browse more of our other nursery wall decal finds.
