Nursery Wall Art (for the cool kids)

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!
