6 Adorable Wallpapers For Baby’s Room

Nurseries must be organized, functional spaces. They require a few simple items: crib, changing table, dresser, maybe a rocking chair.

If you look around your nursery and think “Yeah, it works—but it’s kind of boring,” use some wallpaper to spruce it up! Wallpaper can transform a functional, basic nursery to a sweet, special one.

I recommend wallpapers that don’t feel so baby-ish, so they have lasting power. Let’s be realistic—are you going to have time to completely redo this room when your baby becomes a toddler? Unless you love to change your decor frequently, that baby wallpaper will stress you out as your child becomes a toddler. Knowing that you won’t need to replace it will give you much needed peace of mind.

I hope these ideas inspire you to create a sweet nursery for your little angel.
