10 Creative Wall Decal Ideas October 28 2014
We're used to decorating walls with decals, but there are so many creative places for wall stickers. Here are ten unique wall decal placements that you may not have considered.
1. Your can apply wall decals to paper lanterns or lamp shades. We have a number of small wall decals that would be perfect for this application, including polka dot wall decals, stars wall decals, and heart wall decals. Animals would also be a cute addition.
3. We've seen quite a bit of antique window decor lately. They create a lovely natural frame from for wall decals.
4. Furniture such as dressers, bookshelves, chairs, and craft tables make great places for wall decals. We think nature wall decals would be a nice choice, but any type could work since there is so much space to work with. This is also a great way to hide nicks and other imperfections on your furniture.
5. You can also put a personalized wall decal on your child's bedroom door or perhaps a little detail that matches their room decor.
7. Your refrigerator, toaster, washer and dryer—these are all fun places to personalize your home with wall decals. We think our penguin wall decals would look particularly adorable on the refrigerator.
8. Some of our smaller sets of decals would lend themselves well to gift wrapping. Our polka dot wall decals, flower wall decals, and star wall decals come with multiple tiny pieces and you could use one or two decals per package. You can also write or draw on our decals with a marker.
9. Wall decals work well on lunch boxes, and you can use our 2-inch type decals to personalize your child's lunch.
10. weeDECOR wall decals also look great in picture frames, and if you don't have any empty picture frames we also sell wall decal picture frames as well. You can purchase them with our without your family photos printed inside.
Brown and Pink Damask Nursery by Girl Inspired May 08 2013[caption id="attachment_4954" align="aligncenter" width="427" caption="Pale Pink and Brown Classic Nursery by the Girl Inspired"][/caption] We always "ooh" and "ah" when we see a nursery decorated with damask and this nursery is no different. Check out the Girl Inspired's Brown and Pink Damask Nursery designed by Girl Inspired herself. We love the use of the damask wallpaper on an accent wall. It brings such depth to the room without overwhelming the space. Girl Inspired left no stone unturned when it came to using her space and the decorative elements to its utmost potential. The delicate touches are all here - classic espresso chocolate furniture and shelves, a hanging mobile of bird's on a branch, a nursery glider in a pale pink toile print, fabric wall letters on the shelves, and more. Woven storage baskets tuck neatly in their cubbies, a crystal chandelier hangs elegantly from the ceiling, a soft lamb pillow chair is placed under the window, and nostalgic knick-knacks of jewelry boxes, piggy banks, and picture frames sit on shelves to make the room feel cozy and warm.

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! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="483" caption="Emma's Nursery - Jenny Steffens Hobick"][/caption] And, weeDECOR has several sheep wall decal designs to help augment your nursery décor. 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.

Decorating White Walls? Bright Ideas for your Kid's Room February 28 2013If you can’t paint your kid’s room walls because you live in an apartment or you just prefer white walls, do not fear. Your kid’s room decorating options are far from limited. White walls can be an inspiring starting point for designing a bright and bold baby room. A white wall gives you an empty canvas, which you can take in so many different design directions. We’re a fan of bright colors because they look so striking on a white background. For example, see how mom, Taza, decorated her nursery in her white-walled apartment with a collage of bold and bright colors. One of the statement pieces in the room is a yellow dresser that she and her husband painted. She adds a lime green vintage sofa as well as a colorful strand of garland above the non-working fireplace. Her children’s multi-colored toys add a ton of visual interest so that nothing else is really needed. Beautiful! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="432" caption="Love Taza - Eleanor & Samson's Nursery Tour"][/caption] Speaking of garland, Land of Nod has a fun multi-colored strand made of soft felt, which adds such a festive touch to your white walled room. You DIYers might even be able to make garland yourself! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="440" caption="Land of Nod - Rainbow Felt Ball Garland"][/caption] Australian blog, Little Sooti, is also a fan of white walls in a kids room with a bent of modern, Scandinavian design. Her collection of kids room finds include bold touches such as a red rocking horse, blue colored floors, a multi-colored rug, and more. Finally, check out Babble for this Scandinavian inspired kids homework/play area which, like mom Taza, uses the color from kids toys to help make the room pop. This work area has cute colorful play drums, a mini red piano, a yellow toy suitcase, and more to bring bold and bright to these white walls. [caption id="attachment_4934" align="aligncenter" width="456" caption="weeDECOR - colorful wall decals"][/caption] And we would be remiss without mentioning how our nursery wall decals can add color to your white walls without the mess of paint. Choose from popular kids room themes such as princesses, trains, owls, trees, and more!
A Moroccan Wall Stencil Pattern with Vintage Touches Make this Nursery Shine March 26 2012 1 Comment[caption id="attachment_4831" align="alignnone" width="553" caption="An Aqua and Coral Vintage Nursery with Gorgeous Patterned Walls"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_4832" align="alignnone" width="553" caption="Pretty Ceiling Poms Hang over a Nightstand"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_4835" align="alignnone" width="553" caption="Antique Picture Frames Create Stunning Wall CandyAntique Picture Frames Create Stunning Wall Candy"][/caption] Check out this FABULOUS nursery designed by Los Angeles mom of Ariella. Of course we are suckers for stunning wall decor and this nursery has it! We are going ga-ga over the Moroccan stenciled wall pattern behind the white crib. We love how the pattern frames the crib bringing striking contrast to the room. Mom found the wall stencil pattern on Etsy and painted the wall first in a darker coral (Hopeful by Sherwin Williams) and then stenciled in the lighter color (Amour Pink by Sherwin Williams). But, wait! There's more. We love the ceiling poms that hang playfully over the nightstand in the corner. They bring levity to the room that might otherwise be weighed down by a lot of wood. Speaking of wood, how sweet are the wooden wall letters that sit upon the nightstand adding that personal touch? Finally, the wall stencils are not to be outdone by the collection of wall frames Ariella's mom collected, painted, and arranged into a visually appealing collage across from the crib. While the styles span styles such as antique, vintage, and modern as well as shapes like ovals, circles, squares and rectangles, painting the frames one color bring cohesion that soothes the eye. Head over to Project Nursery to get all the details on how mom put this nursery together.

Bring the Chic with Chevron in your Baby Nursery January 26 2012 1 CommentI think we owe Missoni and Target a big "Thank You" for reminding all of us about the fabulousness that chevron has to offer in attire and decor. A little bold, a little zany, and totally unexpected, this print is popping up here, there, and everywhere thanks to a popularity boost of late. We've found some cute and creative ideas for moms and dads who wish to indulge in this latest trend. [caption id="attachment_4763" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="Of-the-moment color combination plus of-the-moment print = one gorgeous nursery"][/caption] Let's start with the walls, shall we? Two great trends come together in this gorgeous nursery. The choice of grey and white for the walls somehow manages to make the chevron print look more understated because it allows the yellow to truly stand out. We love that this mom and dad decided to go chevron on one wall only. It keeps the project manageable it you're a do-it-yourselfer. There is something about that buttery yellow that softens the crisp lines of the chevron print. We're swooning over here! [caption id="attachment_4764" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Chevron in the Crib"][/caption] Here is another great example of a grey/yellow/white that incorporates chevron prints. This look is slightly more subtle, as the bold print is kept to the bedding only and the rest of the decor is clean and simple. The crib becomes a stunning focal point of this room, and it certainly deserves the spotlight! This crib bedding by Carousel Designs is absolutely adorable, and the trim on the crib skirt is the icing on the cake. [caption id="attachment_4765" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Chevron is the perfect backdrop for these cute critters."][/caption] Thinking of an animal-themed nursery? This wall decor we found on Etsy would make such a fabulous addition to your wee one's room. Cute little critters seem to leap from a chevron background, and the color combinations are just perfect. Lined up above the crib, what baby wouldn't want to gaze up at these fun prints? This is an easy, affordable way to add chevron to your nursery. [caption id="attachment_4766" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="Make a statement with a chevron rug"][/caption] Can't forget the floors, can we? If you're looking to add some drama to your nursery or kid's room, this fun and funky rug might be the perfect find for you! The colors in this room are absolutely stunning. Who would have ever thought that a palette of turquoise, green, black, and white would produce such gorgeous results? The modern feel of the design elements here is the thread that ties all of the pieces together, and no individual piece seems to scream, "Look at me!" This room is the embodiment of harmonious design. [caption id="attachment_4767" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Interesting colors, interesting prints"][/caption] Here is another fabulous example of a unique color combination coupled with beautiful prints. This mom and dad opted for a kinder, gentler chevron rug. White and pale aqua take turns making their way from top to bottom and the overall look is borderline subtle. Toss is some bright, contrasting colors via linens and wall decor and you have an amazing nursery that has it all! Love this! [caption id="attachment_4768" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Outfit your wee one in chevron."][/caption] Still hesitant about chevron? We know, we know. It's bold, it can be wild, it's not for everyone. If you can't commit to the use of chevron in your nursery decor, how about a sleeper? Your little one will look absolutely fabulous in this chevron one-piece. Still not sold on chevron after a month or two? No worries, your baby will outgrow it before you can possibly tire of such a fun print. We have so many ideas of both contemporary and traditional nursery decor on our blog. If you are looking for fabulous wall decals to accent the walls of your nursery or kid's room, heck out all that weeDECOR has to offer.

New and Old Coalesce in this Fab Neutral Nursery January 12 2012[caption id="attachment_4751" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="This Canadian mom mixes vintage elements into a modern nursery."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_4752" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Our whimsical tree wall decal in white is subtle and stately at the same time."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_4753" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Eye-catching stripes create an accent wall."][/caption] If you follow our blog, you already know that one of the biggest recent trends in nursery décor is minimalism. Moms and dads are being more practical in their selection of paint colors, fabrics, and furniture so that their baby can grow in to, not out of, his or her room. In an effort to save time and money, many parents are moving away from babyish nurseries and designing simpler, sophisticated spaces that will withstand the test of time. Another latest and greatest trend in nurseries everywhere is vintage décor. Nurseries that incorporate vintage elements are popping up everywhere, and there are websites dedicated to retro room design for babies and kids. Meaning, there is plenty of inspiration out there for parents who are searching for a whimsical, nostalgic feel in their home. While these two styles (minimalist and vintage) may seem to be in stark contrast to one another, a Canadian mom found a way to effortlessly incorporate elements from each in her baby boy’s room. The result? A playful space that is that exudes sophistication and eludes the kitsch factor that can come into play when decorating with vintage pieces. Mom tells us, “We modeled the nursery after a more modern aesthetic. We wanted a room for our baby boy that was both functional and stylish that would grow with him and that didn't scream baby room! The first item that we chose for the nursery was the fabric for the custom curtains that we had made. We fell in love with the modern chic print and the colors.” We are in love with those curtains too, Mom! The muted colors are a perfect pairing with the print. For the wall color, these parents turned to the perennial favorite, Benjamin Moore, and selected Collingwood OC-28, a soft dove grey color that provides a subtle backdrop for the wall decor. But this couple didn’t stop there! They decided to create a stunning accent wall using masculine striped wallpaper designed Graham & Brown and ordered from Home Depot. This unique attribute adds so much visual interest to the room without overpowering the other features. On to the furniture! Mom writes, “The crib and dresser/change table combo is from Cara Mia Furniture and the custom upholstered glider chair is from Monte.” The contrast between the rich color of the furniture and the soft grey walls is just stunning! The stately crib is softened up with Dwell transportation bedding and organic duvet cover. And of course, no nursery or kid’s room is complete without unique wall accents and accessories. Enter weeDECOR! Mom found the perfect spot for our whimsical white tree wall decal. In keeping with a modern, minimalist feel, she chose white for a clean, crisp look. Mom tells us, “Other wall decor is made up of some vintage prints from our families and pictures taken during the pregnancy and shortly after our son's birth. All are mounted in frames created by Maclean Young Picture Framers. The lighting is a mixture of vintage finds and a custom ceiling fixture. The toy bins are from 3 Sprouts Organics and there is an assortment of vintage stuffed animals (original authentic Paddington Bear) and new finds!” This is a mom who knows how to mix different design elements and strike a balance between 2 competing décor trends. Vintage and minimalist pieces coalesce to create a stylish and unique room that will be enjoyed for years. Great job, Mom! You are an inspiration! For even more inspiration, see other customer photos on our blog. You can also check out our Pinboards on Pinterest for fabulous nursery decor finds.
weeDECOR's Top Nursery Decorating Trends of 2011 December 25 2011Curious? We were, too! So we tracked down the top trends in nursery decorating for 2011. See what we've found! 5. Minimalism [caption id="attachment_4740" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="This mom and dad create a simple and serene space for their little one."][/caption] A long-time favorite of urban dwellers, minimalistic décor has made its way to nurseries across the US. We’ve seen some absolutely stunning kids’ rooms that scream “serenity.” While minimalistic design may seem easy (just pick one or two things and keep it simple), it actually requires more thought, more research, and more precision. Parents who use this approach to nursery décor must pick from what can be an overwhelming amount of products in an effort to find that one piece of art, that one wall decal, that one piece of furniture to serve as the statement piece for the room. We all know how easy it is to get sucked into the 12-piece nursery bedding set! With a valance! And blanket! And nightlight! And rug! And drawer pulls! And on and on! By paring down to the basic essentials, accenting with one or two design elements and creatively using color, parents are creating refined, sophisticated nurseries for their babies. We particularly like this minimalist nursery we found on ChicCheapNursery. 4. Begging, Borrowing, & Stealing The popularity of Pinterest has absolutely exploded in 2011! This social discovery platform now boasts up to 3 million users, and once you spend an hour (or six!) on the site, it’s easy to see why people are gravitating to pinterest for design inspiration. Moms everywhere are able to “beg” for feedback, “borrow” a concept and modify it to make it their own, and “steal” creative and unique ideas of other crafty parents when designing their nurseries. Pinterest gives parents access to a world of clever, beautiful, and sometimes profound collections of images and tutorials. While you’re on the hunt, visit weeDECOR’s pinterest page to see some of our favorite finds. 3. Form, meet Function in these Darling Nightlights [caption id="attachment_4741" align="alignnone" width="277" caption="This tabletop giraffe nightlight would look fabulous in an animal-themed nursery."][/caption] Nursery nighlights are a must for new parents! There is no better way to avoid fumbling around blindly for the burp cloth while keeping things on the dark side so that baby is compelled to go back to sleep after the feeding. This year, we have come across some absolutely adorable nightlights for nurseries. Gone are the days of the pitiful little plastic piece with exposed light bulb that is relegated to the corner of the room. Moms and dads are integrating decorative nightlights into their themed nurseries. The one above from Jonathan Adler is one of the cutest we’ve seen! This nightlight is more of a design element, and less of an afterthought. 2. Growth Charts [caption id="attachment_4742" align="alignnone" width="420" caption="Track your wee one's growth with our removable, reusable, growth chart wall decal."][/caption] Who is more surprised by the rate that children grow, the parents, or the kids themselves? It’s tough to make that call. Decorative growth charts are all the rage in nurseries and kids rooms this year because parents and children delight in having something tangible to track what is happening before their very eyes. In 2011, we’ve seen some unique variations on the standard paper-version of growth charts. At weeDECOR, we have an adorable collection of growth chart wall decals. Our designs are interactive, meaning the kids can take part in marking their height each year. Our friends over at Petite Lemon offer another interesting spin on this design element with their canvas growth charts. 1. Non-traditional paint colors [caption id="attachment_4743" align="alignnone" width="349" caption="This Canadian mom just said "no" to baby blue."][/caption] This year, we've seen a radical departure from overly babyish nurseries. Some parents are selecting furniture and design elements that grow with the child. So instead of completely revamping the room as the child ages, parents just switch out the accessories and leave the major features the same. One way to accomplish this look is through the use of non-traditional paint colors in the nursery. The nursery above features a sophisticated dove gray wall color. A Canadian mom enveloped her baby's nursery in Benjamin Moore's Collingwood OC-28, but incorporated some child-like accessories. The room doesn't scream "baby," but isn't overly mature, either. This mom, like many others this year, chose a paint color that will see her baby well into the teen years.
Up, Up, & Away with this Gorgeous Hot Air Balloon Wall Mural December 03 2011 1 Comment[caption id="attachment_4703" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Mom, Dad, and weeDECOR custom created this wall sticker mural for their little one."][/caption] Balloons, birds, and blue combine to create one gorgeous wall decal mural for an equally gorgeous baby! We were approached by a San Francisco couple to design wall decor that would bring their vision of a perfect nursery to life. Dad proposed to mom in a hot air balloon (awwww....) so they though it fitting to design the nursery of their first born, Ryan, using a hot air balloon theme. They wanted bright and bold colors and asked weeDECOR if we could do something custom. At weeDECOR, we jumped at the chance to help out these awesome parents-to-be. Our designers are always at the ready when special requests come in, and we know that only the best will do when creating that perfect space for your precious wee ones! Mom and dad prepared the walls by blanketing them in Benjamin Moore's Ice Blue from the Aura line. The choice of a softer paint color was brilliant for this project, as the white in the clouds and bold colors of the balloons are a great contrast to the muted tones of the background. Then, it was on to the mural design! In the center, we fashioned a blue and lavender balloon personalized with "Ryan" to serve as the focal point of the mural. We created balloons of various sizes to give the impression of depth in the room (notice how the smaller balloons seem further away than the larger ones?). We included lots of bold color combinations like orange/blue, yellow/green, red/white, and blue/yellow so that the balloons didn't fade into the paint color. But that's not all! Mom and dad wanted a little extra something. In came the embellishments! The clouds (part puffy, part effervescent, and 100% adorable) are creatively placed in front of some balloons and behind others to add to the three-dimensional feel of the design. We pulled some of the bright colors from the balloons to create some matching birdies and voila! A stunning wall decal mural that has it all: personality, exquisite detail, and fun, fun, fun! After adding in the darling Dylan bedding by Serena & Lily, the room was ready for baby's arrival. But what does Ryan think about all this? We're thrilled to report that mom and dad say, "Baby Ryan LOVES looking at his decals as he lays in his crib. We couldn't be happier with the finished product!" We couldn't be happier, either. Thanks for choosing weeDECOR! Loving the idea of a wall sticker mural? We have lots to choose from! If hot air balloons are striking your fancy, see our other hot air balloon wall decals. Our blog is chock-full of nursery decorating ideas for girls and boys if you're looking for a little inspiration.

Sweet & Unique Owl Wall Decor April 28 2010[caption id="attachment_3000" align="alignnone" width="309" caption="Owl Wall Decals by weeDECOR"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_3006" align="alignnone" width="238" caption="3D Handpainted Owl Wall Decor from Bei Tesori"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_3001" align="alignnone" width="344" caption="Owl "Feltscape" from Etsy Seller Hiboucards"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_3003" align="alignnone" width="447" caption="Paper Owl Wall Shelf Knick Kacks by Mibo Studio"][/caption] If you are looking for unique owl themed wall décor for your baby nursery or kid’s room, you’ve come to the right place! Owls are a very popular element in kid’s room decorating these days so you have lots of options whether you want sweet and classic or modern and chic. Of course we are partial to our owl wall decals which give you the flexibility to mix and match colors and styles without having to paint or nail holes in the wall. Choose from classic polka dot owls, boy, girl, or gender neutral owls in popular kids’ décor colors like pink, blue, lavender or our favorite – these soft aqua owl wall decals. For a bit more dimension in your owl wall décor that wall decals don’t have, we like this pink winking 3D owl on a branch wall décor piece called “Brooke”. From Bei Tesori Boutique, this wooden owl wall hanging can come with a wooden peg for a more functional piece. Bei Tesori’s designs are custom cut and painted in their workshop and this piece comes ready to hang. This framed 3D owl “feltscape”from Etsy seller HibouCards is also a cute way to get a 3d owl look. The felt is sewn to create this spring scene with trees, flowers, tall grass with a 3 dimensional caramel, camel, and tan felt owl is sitting at the edge of the frame amongst the tall grass. And, for cute owl décor on a wall shelf we love these adorable paper owls. These paper owls are designed by Mibo, a UK design outlet that also has fabulous lamp shades, throw pillows, and wallpaper. Their paper owls are available via a downloadable/print-at-home-able kit (once you pay, you are sent a pdf file with four owl paper templates and instructions) and are a cheap and cheerful way to get very cute owl decor. See our other articles for modern owl nursery bedding from Dwell and personalized owl wall decor for your little one.
Wallpaper for kids’ rooms has made a comeback in recent years as new generations of designers have improved upon both its functionality and its look. Now, you can find beautiful kids wallpaper with cool, modern designs and it’s much easier to apply. FermLiving is one of those designers and has a line of modern, kid-themed wallpaper called WallSmart. WallSmart is a non-woven wallpaper designed for easier hanging. You apply the paste directly to the wall rather than working with a pre-pasted material. It is even washable to protect from sticky hands. Remember that in any wallpaper project, two sets of hands are a must! We found some great themes for modern kid’s room decorating such as this animal themed wallpaper in bright green with elephants, giraffes, chickens, birds, and squirrels perfect for a playroom. This tree themed wallpaper in yellow, white, and brown called Dotty would be cute wall décor for a girl’s room or gender neutral nursery. We can envision it working well in a yellow nursery with touches of hot pink in a girl’s room or apple green in a boy’s room. Finally, this car themed wallpaper is fun and comes in dark aqua blue and white featuring cars and trucks of contemporary design and colors. It would be delightful in a modern boy’s nursery or a playroom. Keep in mind that the vibrant prints in these and other wallpaper designs can overwhelm a room. Make sure you use bold printed wallpaper sparingly. For example, each of these patterns would look lovely on an accent wall. If not obvious, an accent wall is when you choose one wall in the room to highlight. It may be the wall behind the crib or the wall behind a large dresser. Bold wallpaper prints also look nice above or below a chair rail. We like the idea of using these prints below the chair molding and then painting the upper half in bright, coordinating colors. If you like these wallpaper designs, you can get matching throw pillows to complete your look. Find these kids wallpaper themes at inmod. And, see our other articles using wallpaper on an accent wall, creating wallpaper silhouettes, beautiful flower wallpaper, and cute penguin wallpaper.
DIY Nursery Bird Wall Decor from Your Favorite Crafters February 23 2010[caption id="attachment_2002" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="DIY Fabric Birds on a Branch Wall Decor from Sew Liberated"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_2005" align="aligncenter" width="324" caption="Close Up of Fabric Bird Wall Decor from Sew Liberated"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_2003" align="aligncenter" width="318" caption="Bird on a Branch Wall Decal in a Wreath Wall Decor by Paper, Scissors, Ink"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_2004" align="aligncenter" width="360" caption="Bamboo Bird Wall Mobile by Petit Collage"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_2901" align="aligncenter" width="448" caption="Colorful Bird Wall Decals for a Baby Nursery"][/caption] We are always on the lookout for unique nursery wall decorating ideas and what better place to find them then among our crafty friends online? Inspired by the impending (we hope) arrival of spring, check out this gorgeous selection of bird wall décor pieces for the nursery. Bird décor is a popular theme in modern nursery decorating because it can be as gender neutral as you choose and contemporary bird designs lend a classic twist on a traditional décor theme. This birds on a branch nursery wall piece were created by Meg, a sewing pattern designer and owner of Sew Liberated. Meg created this 3D bird themed wall décor piece for her nursery by using the free bird softie pattern from Spool, scrap fabric, a branch from her backyard, and hot crafting glue. She hung the branch from her wall molding with fishing wire. We love the colors and patterns of her fabric birds. By mixing reds, blues, yellows, and greens, with fun nursery patterns of florals, polka dots, and more, she creates visually compelling artistry that is sure to wow her little one. We especially like the navy, pale blue, and white stuffed bird with polka dots and flowers. If inspired to try on your own, read more about how she did it here. Paper, Scissors, Ink was also cleverly crafty when using removable bird wall decals and a wreath from Michael’s decorated with clear beads to create this DIY 3D bird wall décor piece. We think something like this would look lovely in a classically designed baby nursery over a dresser or on the back of a door. Though Paper, Scissors, Ink made her own bird wall decals, it is relatively easy to find some nice ones in nursery-friendly colors such as blue, pink, green, and yellow online. Try Etsy for starters. For the less DIY inclined, Petit Collage, San Francisco-based maker of modern wall décor for children and adults, has a lovely natural-looking, nested 3D bird wall mobile. This hanging bird mobile is laser-cut from sustainably harvested bamboo plywood, an earth-friendly renewable resource. And, we would be remiss if we did not encourage you to check out our bird wall decals which make it easy for DIY and non-DIY moms alike. Choose from standing bird wall decals or flying bird wall decals that come in pink, blue, aqua, yellow, and lavender and can be used to create a cheery changing area space as shown in the photo above.

New! No VOC Nursery-Friendly Wall Paint from Land of Nod January 30 2010[caption id="attachment_1780" align="aligncenter" width="301" caption="No VOC Light Green Nursery Wall Paint - "Inchworm" from Land of Nod"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1781" align="aligncenter" width="301" caption="No VOC Lavender Nursery Wall Paint - "Naptime" from Land of Nod"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1782" align="aligncenter" width="301" caption="No VOC Orange Nursery Wall Paint - "Have you Seen Tangerine" from Land of Nod"][/caption] Land of Nod has just introduced a delightful selection of wall paints for nurseries and kids’ rooms to coordinate with their stylish line of baby and children furniture and accessories. With names as pleasant-sounding to the ear as the wall paint colors are pleasant-looking to the eye, it’s worth taking a peek even if you’re not planning a near-term, nursery decorating project. Our favorite names are a light olive green paint called “Ribbit”, a taupe paint called “Dad’s Pants”, and a soft yellow-beige paint called “Buttered Noodles”. Clever :) The light green paint featured above is called “Inchworm”and is a gorgeous spring-like shade of green, great for a gender neutral themed nursery or a spring baby. Add more brown, mocha, or taupe décor to make it a bit more “boy”. Add soft pinks, bright pinks, or lavenders to make it a bit more “girl”. The lavender paint shade is called “Naptime” and is modern and fun. If you seek brightness, use white to complement your decorating as done by Land of Nod here. Or, bring in some light colored-wood furniture to soften up your look. Finally, for something way modern and striking, “Have you seen Tangerine” can bring in a rich, warm orange wall paint that will envelope your baby boy’s nursery in coziness. Best for bigger nurseries with a bit more space, as darker shades of paint can make a room feel small, try rich brown furniture as styled by Land of Nod with cool blue accents for a modern feel. Or, heavy up on the white and olive accents for something a bit more retro. With regard to eco-friendliness and kid safety, Land of Nod has it all buttoned up. All of their wall paints are eco-friendly, non-toxic, free of VOCs and solvents, and have nearly zero odor. Their paint is also safe from commonly sticky hands as it is scrub resistant. The paints are made by Mythic. See our other nursery wall paint ideas, particularly nursery wall paint trends for 2010.
80 Clever Wall Word, Quote, & Saying Ideas for Kids Room Walls January 25 2010[caption id="attachment_1747" align="aligncenter" width="379" caption="Uppercase Living Wall Word Decals for a Kid's Room"][/caption] Wall words and quotes are a fun way to decorate a kid's room wall because they bring versatility and personality that is difficult to get with other decor elements. There are so many famous sayings, quotes, and ways to use wall words that you are sure to have your own individual style. The other thing we like is that kids wall quotes and sayings you use can be catered to your child's age. Your choice of wall word and quote decor for your baby nursery is likely different than with what you would decorate your toddler's room. When working with a larger number of letters like quotes,sayings, and phrases, we think it best to consider removable wall letter decals. Wall decals are less expensive than wooden wall letters and are removable without damaging your walls. Several e-commerce shops specialize in vinyl wall decal words and quotes such as Uppercase Living, Wallwords, and many others. Choose your favorite pre-made kids saying or quote. Or, create your own. Many of these wall letter wall decals come in various fonts and sizes to help match your decorating style. To get your creative juices humming, we've collected 80 inspiring ideas. So, go forth and create. (You can add this one to the list:)) Bed Time Fun Wall Words & Quotes Shhh… Rock-a-bye-baby Goodnight. Sleep Tight.

Ooh La La Decorating Idea - Paint the Nursery Walls Orange! January 07 2010[caption id="attachment_1605" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="Orange and Yellow Nursey Decor"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1608" align="aligncenter" width="288" caption="Calypso Orange Benjamin Moore Wall Paint for a Nursery or Kids' Room"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1609" align="aligncenter" width="291" caption="Citrus Orange Benjamin Moore Wall Paint for a Nursery or Kid's Room"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1610" align="aligncenter" width="286" caption="Kids Stuff Sherwin-Williams Wall Paint for a Nursery or Kid's Room"][/caption] Decorating a nursery gives you the opportunity to break out from what might be more conservative décor. We like to think of it more as an obligation – an obligation to ourselves to continue fueling the creative nature in each of us. And, what better way to do that than with contemporary European style and painting the nursery orange? According to color theorists, orange is a warm color that encourages play – the perfect color for kids – by combining the happiness of yellow and the energy of red. This nursery from UK outfit VivaBaby packs a punch with orange painted walls and bright and cheery white and yellow furniture. VivaBaby is a retailer of exclusive modern nursery and children’s furniture from top designers in Italy, Denmark, France, and Germany. The collection featured here is from Italy and is called Nature Yellow and depicts bees on a summer day. To recreate this look, there are a few shades of wall paint to consider. From Benjamin Moore, try Citrus Orange or Calypso Orange. You can get these shades in their eco-friendly, no VOC brand, Natura. Sherwin Williams has a shade called Kid’s Play that is also nice. As with any painting project, always, ALWAYS test a few shades on the wall before committing to a color. It is amazing how different a paint chip can look from the actual paint on the wall. For the rest of the baby room, decorate white furniture and light-colored accessories (i.e. gliders, rugs, bedding). With a bold paint color on the walls, you’ll need a lot of white to provide the contrast that will give the room its punch and reflect the light. And, if you are concerned with overwhelming the room in orange, consider painting just one of the three walls orange to get that delightful splash of color. Or, paint the bottom half orange and the top half a decorator’s white and use a fun wall border to separate the two colors. Consider wall decals or wall stencils to create a wall border similar to this one.
The Best Shades of Blue Wall Paint for the Nursery December 27 2009[caption id="attachment_1530" align="aligncenter" width="510" caption="Light Blue Paint for a Nursery - Benjamin Moore "Lake Placid""][/caption] There are thousands of shades of blue paint to choose from which makes it more than challenging to narrow down choices. We spent some time finding the best shades of blue wall paint for your baby's nursery or kid's room so you don't have to. Our criteria was based on richness of color, uniqueness of color, and the likelihood of the paint matching other decorative elements like bedding and window treatments. We then tried to find examples where these paints were used so you had a better sense for them. And, don't think blue paint is just for boy nurseries. Bring in a bit more girl with white, pink, or lavender and you'll be all set. We've broken our finds into three categories - light blue, medium blue, and dark or navy blue and linked to them where we could find them. Pretty much all of these are low or no VOC (i.e. no fumes, no odor, and more environmentally safe) but it's best to confirm before purchase. Good luck with your painting and let us know how you like our recommendations. Light Blue Lake Placid, Benjamin Moore - Featured in the photo above from mfluhr on HGTV's Rate My Space.

Top Nursery Wall Paint Color Ideas for 2010 December 25 2009[caption id="attachment_1517" align="aligncenter" width="450" caption="Benjamin Moore's Robin's Nest Wall Paint for a Baby Nursery"][/caption] Since we are getting ready to kick off the new year, we have come up with our picks for our favorite nursery wall paint colors for 2010 for a baby nursery. These wall paint ideas were gathered based on recent home decor trends, our love for certain shades, and an eye on fashion and interior design trends for 2010. Furthermore, we'll show you which of our wall decals match with these great shades. 1) Turquoise was recently named Pantone's color of the year for 2010 and it is a fun color to use in kid's and baby room decorating. Take this nursery decorated by Etsy seller and blogger Caroline Armelle above as an example. She used Benjamin Moore's Robin's Nest wall paint to create a modern nursery with a touch of vintage. This shade is like that beautiful Tiffany blue. Because the blue is so striking on its own, neutral shades like brown and white add great depth of color. Try our animal wall decals in chocolate brown to add that bit of fun. 2) Caroline's nursery uses another one of our recommended colors - a sunny yellow. We like Sherwin William's Lemon Twist to get that bright and cheery yellow as shown in this Project Nursery post. Yellow is a wonderful color for 2010 because it can be accompanied with bright and vibrant colors like blues and greens. Or, it can be softened with soft browns and creams. This shade of yellow is also great for a gender neutral nursery. We like pairing this yellow with green to bring in that natural feel. Our apple green wall decals are a bright and cheery green that will go with most any shade of yellow. For theme ideas, try our turtle wall decals or our green and yellow butterfly wall decals. 3) Eco-friendly decor will continue to grow in 2010 and our list would be incomplete without that perfect shade of green. This beautiful Cedar Green is from Benjamin Moore and is part of Pottery Barn Kid's decor line. This green is not too yellow and not too olive. It is that perfect nature-colored green and the paint itself is nature friendly as it is zero VOC. Because it is such a neutral shade, you can use many accent colors to liven it up such as blue, yellow, and orange. 4) Pastel baby blues are a thing of the past and 2010 is no different. There are so many gorgeous shades of blue to help you create the perfect boy's room. Benjamin Moore's Lake Placid is a timeless classic blue with a bit of grey to bring that contemporary look we seek. Our charcoal grey wall decal letters would add that personalized, matching touch. 5) For girls' room decorating, there will always be pink. But, pink in 2010 borders on lilac like this Juice from Serena & Lily. This vivacious color is also low VOC and would work well against white moldings and borders. Again, our wall decal letters in white would match perfectly and we'd recommend a fun type face like curly or wavy. 6) Finally, we think lavender will continue to shine in 2010 as it did in 2009. This Lily Lavender wall paint is also part of Pottery Barn Kid's Benjamin Moore selection. Lavender is a beautiful light purple that provides a nice alternative to a pink wall paint. See our other articles on which paints are safe for nurseries and other wall paint ideas for your baby's room such as modern palette picks from top designers. Then, see our selection of nursery wall decals to make your nursery fabulous.
Gorgeous Wall Paint Ideas for Kids' Rooms from Top Designers December 14 2009[caption id="attachment_1441" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Kids Room Wall Paint Color Palette in Blue, Orange, and Yellow from Benjamin Moore"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1442" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Kids Room Wall Paint Color Palette in Blue, Pink, and Yellow from Benjamin Moore"][/caption] Real Simple, one of our favorite magazines for fun, fresh ideas for life and the home worked with Amy Wax, author of Can’t Fail Color Themes ; Kristan Cunningham, host of HGTV’s Design on a Dime; and Leatrice Eiseman of the Pantone Color Institute with photography by Grant Cornett, to come up with these gorgeous wall paint color combos. These designed-for-kids fun colors are delightful and contemporary alternatives to your more traditional shades of blue and pink. We've included a few of the palettes above but there are more in the full article at RealSimple.com. Their decorating tip of using one of the three colors for the walls and the others for accents and trim is a great way to add the color depth and contrast we seek in a vibrant colored kids room and baby nurseries. The first wall paint palette they call Citrus Blast is our favorite. We love the orange and blue combo with the yellow touch. The colors are called Tangelo, Tropical Cabana, and American Cheese and are Benjamin Moore's Natura line. Benjamin Moore's Natura line has zero VOC's (which means the paint does not emit odor nor chemicals) and is a great choice for the eco-conscious mom. The second wall paint palette we liked as it cleverly used both blue and pink with a neutralizing yellow. They aptly named this palette Berry Blast and the colors are Mimosa, Strawberry Ice, and Little Boy Blue by Pantone EuroLux Interior sold at pantone.com. See our other articles for more inspirational ideas for wall paint in kids rooms and learn which wall paints are safe for nurseries.
Gorgeous Nursery Wall Paint & Decor for a Baby Boy November 22 2009[caption id="attachment_1278" align="aligncenter" width="470" caption="Boy Nursery in Brown, Sage, & Blue"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1279" align="aligncenter" width="470" caption="Boy Nursery in Blue, Sage, & Brown with Glider"][/caption] Rate My Space is a fantastic place to get ideas for nursery and kid's room decor. The site is part of HGTV and has hundreds, if not thousands, of nurseries and kids rooms decorated by people from around the world. We were particularly inspired by Griffan's baby boy room which is decorated in mocha (or brown), beiges, blues, and greens. With a little wall paint, this mom created a warm, modern feeling nursery that looks like the work of a professional interior designer. The walls in this nursery are the highlight. The squares you see are painted on the wall. You can recreate this look by using a contemporary wall stencil approach. Use tape of your chosen width to create the grid. The brown-toned wall paint is Sherwin Williams Mocha. Above the crib hang the peach, blue, and green wall letters from WalMart giving the nursery the personalization we love. In the second photo, notice the creative, modern wall shelves in the shape of a wave adding some rounded corners like the white Japanese lanterns hanging from the ceiling - one of our favorite nursery decorating items! As you can see, a little bit of wall paint can go along way. See our other articles for inspiring nursery wall paint ideas as well as how to find wall paint safe for nurseries.
Delicious Shades of No VOC Wall Paint from PB Kids October 25 2009[caption id="attachment_1036" align="aligncenter" width="383" caption="No VOC Lily Lavender Wall Paint from PBKids"][/caption] Wall paint is such an easy and low cost way to bring life to your nursery or kid's room. But, it can be challenging to find that 'just right' color and eco-friendly solution (read: no VOC, low odor) you feel comfortable putting on your baby's walls. Pottery Barn Kids has been working with Benjamin Moore for a few years now helping you with wall paint ideas to match your kid's decor. They have just introduced their latest fall/winter colors in a beautiful selection we adore in Benjamin Moore’s eco-friendly Natura® formula. This zero-VOC and nearly odorless wall paint is great for kid-friendly spaces not only because it is enviornmentally friendly, but also because it covers well and withstands repeated scrubbings from little sticky fingers. The colors are lavishly named using delicious words such as Raspberry Truffle, Pink Cadillac, Cedar Green, and Blue Marguerite. Above we show the Lily Lavender shade in a girl's room. Their wall paint is available in an Eggshell or a Semi-gloss finish. The Eggshell finish provides a softly polished look and an easy to clean surface ideal for children’s walls. The Semi-gloss finish stands up well to repeated cleanings, and is recommended for moldings and trim. These paints are only available online and we highly encourage you to sample the colors before committing. Because the shades are custom mixed, they are not returnable. Pottery Barn Kids sells their wall paint in one gallon cans but offers an eight-ounce color sample kit for testing your walls. They also sell their fan deck for $2 so you can see all the colors. See our other articles for low or no VOC wall paint recommendations for your kid's rooms.
Picasso-like Wall Mobiles & Wall Stickers for a Modern Nursery September 24 2009[caption id="attachment_779" align="aligncenter" width="410" caption="Wall Mobiles & Wall Stickers for Modern Nursery Decorating"][/caption] We are often inspired by great nursery wall decor because it can be a focal point in the room that helps you create a unique and distinctive baby nursery. We found this collection from A Kids Corner, a children's bedding and furniture outfit based in Ontario. We were inspired with how creatively they used wall stickers (or wall decals) and a wall mobile to create a baby wall with texture, definition, and visual interest that is too often reserved for furniture and fabrics. The color palette of sage green, espresso brown, and mocha screams modern baby boy. It is soft, soothing, and a touch masculine - perfect for a baby boy room. The square wall stickers are applied creatively offset from one another to add visual dimension to the wall. And, the geometric shape of the wall sticker adds the modern shapes we love. A Kids Corner calls this their Baby Picasso collection and says it is a combination of luxurious velvets, textures and trims. The geometric wall décor compliments the set. You can also get the baby chair, block design pillow, diaper stacker, and window valance. We don't see where you can purchase it online, but they do have a store in Ontario for our Canadian readers. See our other creative nursery wall decor and wall sticker ideas for decorating your baby room.

Ocean and Fish Nursery Wall Decor August 31 2009
One of our favorite themes for nursery decoration is a fish, ocean or aquarium theme. It’s fun, soothing, whimsical, & oh-so-ever stylish. Ocean themes are also one of the most popular baby nursery themes around so you should have no problems finding matching bedding and accessories.
Or for a more modern touch, stay with nursery bedding in solid colors or simple lines, and use nursery hangings on the walls to accentuate your ocean theme. For example, a wooden anchor hanging on the wall adds a unique and authentic touch to a nautical inspired room for baby boy. Or add a wall decal or sticker of Ariel and her magical underwater sea creatures, from The Little Mermaid, for a cute & fun underwater design for baby girl. We also love these ocean & fish themed wall hangings from MyWonderfulWalls. You’ll be sure to transport your guests to an underwater paradise with these ready-to-hang ocean themed kid’s wall canvases. At $45 each, they are a fun & affordable way to transform your ocean inspired room into a modern baby nursery.
