Wallpaper ideas for your baby’s nursery

Much like the downstairs loo, children’s rooms have become places where we can be a little more experimental with our decoration. You can abandon your normal design tastes and indulge in a little childhood fantasy – particularly in the use of interesting wallpapers.

We firmly believe that it is in for a penny in for a pound with wallpaper, which means it needs to go on EVERY wall. No feature walls here! With the huge range of wallpaper now available it is a great way to liven up the lives of the little poppets in your life!

Here is our pick of some of the best nursery wallpapers available:

The Literary Baby

Jane Churchill (with Colefax and Fowler) has cleverly taken the beautiful illustrations from A A Milne’s Winnie the Pooh to create this completely classic nursery paper. It comes in a number of colourways but we love the charcoal as it looks as though it has been sketched on to your walls.

Approx – £50 per roll

The Discerning Toddler

Traditional fabric house Bennison will make up any of their fabrics into wallpaper for you – they don’t come cheap but they are worth it! We love this chic Monkey Puzzle design, especially in their orange and pink colourway.

Approx £190 per roll.

The Arty Child

We love Molly Mahon’s block printed fabric and wallpapers and think this spot and star would look great in a nursery or children’s bedroom. It’s the sort of pattern that can really grow with a child, which means you won’t have to be redecorating their room for a few years to come!

Approx £140 Per roll

Sticky fingers

One final thought… If you don’t want to go to the expense of buying and hanging wallpaper then why not take a short cut and use removable wall stickers? A brilliant, and temporary, way to brighten up a child’s room. Notonthehightstreet have a great selection to choose from.

Starting from approx. £15
