Nursery wallpaper ideas

When planning a nursery interior, your main goal should be to create a room that your child will love even as they grow up but also don’t forget about creating a pleasant atmosphere for yourself as a parent, too. These nursery wallpaper ideas will help you define the main concept of the room that you can then flesh out with finer details such as wallpaper color or pattern.

Nursery wallpaper for accent walls


If you are considering decorating your nursery with wallpaper, first decide whether it will serve only as a neutral background or as a relevant, eye-catching accent.

In order to create a wow factor for your nursery, consider creating an accent wall. It can be covered either with a solid color wallpaper or with a thematic pattern. The whole idea is to bring the focus to a single wall by setting it apart from the rest of the space, at the same time not causing an overload for the eyes.

It is true that friendly, happy and light colors create a warm atmosphere - but it doesn't always have to be limited to the classic pink and pastel hues if you actually prefer something brighter. For instance, a feature wall with yellow patterned wallpaper can be perfect for your baby's room too.

Accent walls with patterned wallpaper can provide the perfect backdrop for a themed nursery and alter visual perception. For example, for a feature wall, you can go with more bold and fine patterns such as repetitive city views or safari animals. It’s not something that would usually be used to cover the whole nursery, because you don't want to make it look too intense, but, as accents, these bold wallpaper patterns will arouse the interest in the child and encourage creative thinking.

Nursery peel and stick wallpaper patterns


For a neutral background, all of the walls can be decorated with the same minimalistic pattern, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring or, on the contrary, overwhelming. You can always try combining different patterns to achieve the look you’re after. Also, patterned nursery wallpaper can be coordinated with other elements of the room, including the floor, curtains, furniture, doors, and textiles.

A pattern with animal figures, flowers or trees in primary colors will attract your baby's attention as they gradually discover more details. Also, a very pleasing and calming effect can be achieved by using wallpapers with larger-scale star or cloud patterns. If you’re looking for a wallpaper that’s patterned, yet soft on the eyes at the same time, scroll through the watercolor patterns to find the perfect one.

Nursery wallpaper ideas for girls and boys

Sometimes it can be tricky to decide how to decorate the nursery for a girl or a boy, especially as there are so many choices available. Take a look at our selection of nursery themes and get inspired to create the perfect room for your kid, using the right nursery wallpaper.

Nursery wallpaper for boys

Blue tones are very traditional for boys, and, to spice it up, you can use various wallpaper patterns, thereby focusing on more dynamic zoning of the nursery.

Also, warm and light shades of green are often chosen for boy’s nursery wallpaper. The same goes for yellow - it will not only make the room sunnier, but also encourage the baby to explore their surrounding.

Nursery wallpaper for girls


Nursery is the perfect opportunity to make some daring design choices and try new, chic things. Lively and inspiring baby girl nursery wallpapers are the absolute best for this kind of project.

For girls, large and bold florals or nature-inspired nursery wallpapers are always a good idea. However, it doesn't always have to be pink. You can also mix colors like pale green, yellow, purple and blue. Also, you could create a simple white space with some bold accents. Another decoration idea for a girl’s nursery is to choose a black and white wallpaper pattern, which can be colored with bright furniture or interior decors.

Gender-neutral nursery wallpaper


Many parents-to-be lovingly furnish the nursery even before the child is born. When selecting a suitable wallpaper, they often go for classic models in pastel colors and with funny animal patterns or fairy tale motifs.

Repetitively patterned wallpapers are a popular choice for gender-neutral nurseries. The repetition of the design adds liveliness to the room and makes for an impactful accent wall. The black and white speckle wallpaper design is also super cute and provides you with a monochrome color palette to base your space around.
