Before Archie was born, we decorated his nursery. It was such a fun process, but one that ultimately left us with a room that lacked much character or personality. We were decorating it for this tiny person who we didn't yet know and I think we went for safe choices in terms of colours and furniture, as we had never done this before! Once he reached 6 months old (ok maybe 7) we knew it was time for him to start sleeping in his own room, but every time I looked in there I just didn't feel like it was the bright, interesting and dreamy nursery that I had hoped for.
So I made it my mission to give it a makeover before it became his bedroom for real. I'm going to be making a video on his room in more detail soon, but for now I wanted to talk about something that i've become a little obsessed with in recent months. Nursery Wall Art. Now when I first started looking at how we could decorate the walls with something other than a coat of paint, I found the run of the mill cartoon wall decals and animal boarders, but I knew I wanted something different.
We had decided on a tribal/North American theme, so I decided to have a look at some Teepee wall art and I suddenly discovered all of these wonderful prints on Etsy! And not only were they exactly what I was looking for, but they were also available to instantly download so my little impatient self didn't have to wait for the prints to be shipped from across the world.
I love so many of the designs and I'm definitely in the process of ordering more for one of his walls. You can print these out yourself if you have a good quality printer, but if you don't or you want them in a larger size like me then having them printed for you from somewhere like Photobox is a good option. They we're quite inexpensive and arrived in just a few days.
I thought i'd share with you some of my favourite prints from the artists I love the most on Etsy. I've included some gorgeous girlie one's also if you have a little lady in your life! I love them so much i'm planning which non baby ones to get for others rooms in the house too!
|Mini Learners have some awesome black and white prints that have a very Scandinavian feel. I really love the teepee one (of course) and definitely plan to get a few more from here.|
|These prints from Nomad Printables would be perfect for a pretty, pastel room. I love the colours and shapes. they would add a modern touch to any nursery.|
|The one I love the most from PaperCanoePrinatables in the 'Say yes to new adventures' print. I really want Archie to explore the word and have lots of fun adventures with Rikki and I. These prints are such a lovely way to add meaningful messages to your home.|
|Finally one of my favourites Zoom Boone Creations have some amazing prints that fit perfectly with our tribal theme. Archie has a couple from here including the Be Brave Bear print and I absolutely love it! I also asked the lovely lady who owns the shop if I could change the wording as I have two prints with the same message and she was more than happy to do it (I just haven't got round to ordering another one yet!)|
Let me know if you decide on adding any of these prints to your little ones nursery or bedroom!
