Get The Look: Stunning Nursery Walls (Ceilings Too!)
A Moroccan Stencil and a few cans of paint can create a stunning nursery accent wall that transitions perfectly as your little one grows up. Two different shades of pink keep this fun design sophisticated and chic.
Chevron designs are everywhere these days – from rugs to pillows to walls, and for good reason. This classic pattern looks great in just about any color, but we adore how the grey used here works as a neutral. To create your own chevron nursery wall, get your painter’s tape ready and head over to House 36 for Nadia’s Chevron how-to tutorial.
Although putting baby’s name on the nursery wall isn’t a new idea, we LOVE the modern twist these Oversized Letters add! Vary the size of your lettering and mix paint finishes (gloss, flat and semi-gloss) to add visual interest, sticking to a monochromatic color palette to keep the finished result simple and soothing. Create the oversize letters out of rigid paper, taping them to the wall to achieve the desired layout. Lightly trace around the edges to create outlines, remove the guide letters and paint inside the lines.
Make a bold statement with bright Ceiling Stripes, taking inspiration from the nursery of J. Crew Creative Director Jenna Lyons’ son, Beckett. Color doesn’t have to be limited to walls, and stripes overhead give baby something captivating to look at from the crib. If high contrast brights are not your thing, go tonal or pair two neutral colors together to create a unique room for all ages.
