A charming mobile with felt owls, clouds or stars takes center stage here: as bright decoration piece of a crib, it’s sure to delight your baby for the first few months of his/her life.


2. Thematic Wall Decorations

Walls that are decorated with paintings create a fabulous atmosphere in the nursery

You could request an interesting wall design for the nursery from a professional artist or design yourself, using special templates. Some options include (but are not limited to) flowers, cartoon characters and scenes from a children’s animated movie.

Another idea is to put simple stickers on the wall that are based on popular cartoon themes. The biggest advantage of this type of nursery decor is that it’s not permanent – should the child grow up and/or tire of the decor, these stickers can be easily removed or replaced any time.


3. Window Decals

Another spectacular view of the nursery decor is window painting. With the help of special paints or temporary applications, you can decorate the glass with thematic drawings for the kids. 

Depending on your artistic abilities, you can depict a fairy tale or just draw some characters.

Stuffed toys can not only be beautiful, but also useful. Taking into account how to decorate a nursery, consider the option of creating decorative pillows-toys. They will be added inside the positive notes of the children.


You can also sew fun toys with pockets to store several small things. For younger children, you can place such organizers (for example, in the form of a funny caterpillar) on the wall near the bed, and for teenagers, near the computer table.

And the list of ideas goes on…



As you can see, if you try and connect creative thinking, then unique and interesting ideas for a nursery can be born. And viewing such photo collections, as a rule, becomes the starting point for creating creative decor in the rooms of our children.
