We go Bah-Bah over Sheep Nursery Décor April 19 2013One of the sweetest classic themes in nursery décor is the quintessential little lamb. So classic. So perfect for your little one. We just couldn’t help taking notice of so many beautiful baby nurseries incorporating this theme! Aside from being simple and sweet, we appreciate the gender and color neutrality the sheep design element brings to a baby’s room. Since most sheep come in white, you can add almost any accent color of your liking. For example, see this lovely grey and white sheep themed nursery designed for Charlotte in Austin, TX. The rich, elegant furnishings from Restoration Hardware Baby and Child bring a classic touch to a relatively modern color scheme. For a bolder look, consider black and white sheep décor as highlighted by Joni Lay on BHG.com. Bold, black accents such as the lamp and dresser shown in this inspiration board can make quite an impact. And, babies are attracted to high contrast colors which make this nursery that much more attractive. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="Baa Baa Black Sheep - Better Homes & Gardens"][/caption] For a softer, more classic look, see how entertaining and lifestyle expert Jenny Steffens Hobick used pale blue and classic lamb décor from Pottery Barn Kids to decorate her lamb themed baby room. We especially like the lamb rocker—just darling!

Our jumping sheep wall decal has three little sheep jumping over fences onto blades of grass. We also have a personalized sheep decal to make your baby’s nursery feel even more unique.

Consider an aqua and orange nursery. Aqua and orange give you a gender neutral option as well as the choice to go vintage or modern. One of the things we love about this color palette is the perfect balance between the warmth of the orange and the coolness of the aqua. Both colors can also provide a richness of hues to give you the visual depth of color we adore. For example, Little Crown Interior designers Naomi Coe and Gerri Panebianco fused both contemporary and retro styles in Cruz’s orange and aqua baby room, creating balance in its color palette with the use of the rich chocolate brown. The ultimate eye-catcher in this nursery is the aqua wall with the personalized nursery wall art in orange and aqua spelling out Cruz’s name. The nursery features a custom made upholstered crib as its centrepiece, paired with a custom changing table and bookcase, both in rich chocolate brown. It was further accessorized with a giant stuffed giraffe peeking out from behind a stylishly modern chair. To accent your orange and aqua nursery, consider these fun finds to give that boost of color to your baby’s room: • Etsy designer Elana Rosa Design's orange and aqua nursery wall art depicting poofy flowers, perfect for a modern orange and aqua nursery. • Oilo's striped aqua pendant lighting. Handmade and custom produced, this pendant lamp brings a softer aqua to the room. • Etsy designer Little Sprout Creations' Tangerine Sunset orange baby mobile that you can place just above your baby’s crib or bed. The cascading circles will give your baby interesting color and shape to gaze upon.

And, that we should! Green is the most popular color for decorating a nursery. It is versatile, timeless, and a reminder of how powerful one of the most common colors in nature is in bringing beauty to interior decorating. If you are going modern with your nursery, seek shades of green that have a bit of a yellow tint as today’s modern nursery décor reflects citrus shades not unlike these green children’s wall décor pieces from New Jersey-based BeBe Chic. These wall décor pieces will not only coordinate with your modern-colored green baby nursery, but are bursting with personality. For example, this "Blossom of Love" green tree wall hanging is a lovely, modern 20” wall canvas giclee print with gorgeous varying shades of green used for the leaves and scene. We love how the hearts are interpreted as flowers that colorfully decorate the tree and the ground like fallen rose petals – a beautiful wall hanging for your little girl’s room. For your baby boy’s green nursery , use this green frog themed wall hanging to embellish or to simply add a touch of fun to his room. The cute green frog sits on a lily pad surrounded by pretty stripes and polka dots in soft yellow, pale blue, and white. As a side note, we love the three-pronged color palette of citrus green, pale blue, and light yellow for a baby boy’s room. Finally, for a modern, gender neutral green nursery, consider green bird themed wall art. These precious green chics are surrounded by modern illustrated flowers on a wall canvas that would look contemporary and stylish in a baby boy’s or girl’s room. These green wall décor pieces from Bebe Chic are sold at several baby retailers online including Tresstina. Bebe Chic also has stylish kids décor and baby gear such as bedding, lamps, and stroller liners.

Choose from delicious cupcake, ice cream cone, and wrapped candy wall hangings in yummy, nursery-friendly colors like bubble gum blue, cotton candy pink, chocolate brown, white marshmallow, and green lollipop. Consider the pinks for a girly-girl's room or the browns, greens, and blues for a more gender neutral feel. Lex Modern was started by Melanie Philip and Lexton Young around the same time as their little Lexton was born. Melanie was seeking a way to have more "Mom" time and a creative outlet. With a degree in interior design and a background in children's design, she came up with the concept of LexModern – modern wall art for kids – and they were on their way. Aside from sweets, LexModern has great owls, elephants, giraffes, and bicycle images and stylishly modern handprint kits to preserve the memories from your wee one’s baby days (cute for a baby footprint, too!) We also appreciate their cute “recycle” themed images encouraging your little one to be earth-friendly. Many of their wall hangings can be personalized with your child’s name including the candy-themed wall hangings featured here. Each of the cupcake, ice cream, and candy themed pieces come ready to hang on a 1.5" deep stretched canvas and are protected with an eco-friendly coating. The wall hangings come in three sizes (13” x 13”, 19” x 19”, 31” x 31”). See our other articles on kids' modern wall hangings from Jeeto, Cici Art Factory, and J.AustinRyan.

But it’s hard to know where to start, especially if you’re trying to find art for your kid’s room walls. You are not alone in this world. The founders of French-based L'Affiche Moderne had the same problem and can help you find original kids wall art that that does not feel like it “belongs in your dentist’s waiting room”. Even better, they can help you (and your wee one) with your French. L'Affiche Moderne is French for "The Modern Poster". The founders were inspired when they found many great books illustrated by talented artists, but were surprised when they couldn’t find comparably illustrated wall art for their kids. Hence, L'Affiche Moderne was born with the vision of offering original and creative works by some of the best illustrators, graphic designers and photographers around the world at below art gallery prices. Their wall art selection has a vintage or retro bent, but an overall modern feel. Their contemporary art selection for kids has both vibrant colors and neutral palettes as well as vintage-feeling illustrations that remind us of when we were kid’s ourselves. The concepts are sometimes very modern, sometimes funny, sometimes educational, and always beautiful. Examples above include a gorgeous around the world wall poster for a travel-themed kid’s room. Penguins in Antarctica, elephants in India, pandas in China, and kangaroo in Australia are depicted in the vintage-styled work by children’s book illustrator Julie Mercier. This exclusive under-the-sea wall wall print illustration by French character illustrator Marion Billet features fish, turtle, sharks, and other sea creatures in a brightly-colored ocean world. If you are seeking something delightfully different, consider wall photography to add a unique feel. This photo of a doll in a garden by French photographer Cyril Auvity is precious fora little girl's room. Finally, our favorite is this French language wall poster from French graphic designer and illustrator Limoon designed to educate your child on common French words like “arebre” for tree, “un” for one, and “glace” for ice cream. You can purchase most of these and other wall art from L'Affiche Moderne in poster, mounted canvas, or framed print format and they ship to the US. Keep in mind that all pieces are limited edition (300 prints in total) so they may not last. As further incentive, L'Affiche Moderne is offering 25% off to weeDECOR readers now through February 7th.
