A nursery is a child’s first room. It’s the one room in the house that will be filled with emotion.
When we moved last month, leaving Olive’s nursery was the toughest room to part with. It was a place of rest and also many tears (from Olive and me). Her new room is very similar to her old one, and with both rooms, I’ve made sure to include pieces that will grow with her for many years or that I can use in other areas of my home.
Art in a nursery or child’s room should be personal, fun, and timeless. When choosing art pieces, find a piece that will fit with the overall style of the room but neutral that will fit in other spaces once your child outgrows his/her first space.
I can think of several different areas in my home that I would love to use this sheep print, but hanging over a crib makes this space eclectic and natural.
An entire nursery can designed around a single piece of art. If this is a splurge-worthy piece, keep in mind how you would use this piece in another room other than the nursery. Would it also fit in your bedroom or above your dining room buffet? If so, then it makes sense to spend a little extra on a piece that you love.

1 | Mesmerize
I personally own this piece, and I’m excited to hang it in our downstairs living room as soon as the walls get painted. I would absolutely hang this in Olive’s big girl room with a black iron bed and dark green and blush pink pillows! This print may have a new home in a couple years.
2 | Splendor
This piece would look amazing above a vintage dresser/changing table with gold and blush pink accessories. It would also be a great addition to any gallery wall or ledge.
3 | Wake ii
Wake ii has been in my cart several times. It’s such a gorgeous, neutral piece. It pulls more feminine, but it could be used in many different settings. I can picture it on a mantle with sleek, matte candle sticks!
4 | Upward
Upward is a whimsical piece that would perk up any nursery, but it could also easily be used in a little girl’s room with a spunky, adventurous personality.
5 | Ice Cream Social
This print would be beautiful hung above a crib in a sweet baby girl’s room. There are so many color options to pull from this one. You could go neutral, white, and gold or paint the walls a light gray with different shades of pink as accents. This piece could easily grow with your daughter well into her college days. It’s a timeless, abstract beauty!
6 | Blush Blossoms
A floral is such an elegant way to add a soft, feminine touch to a space. The colors in this piece is perfection for your little lady.
7 | Llama
Animal prints are very popular right now. This llama would make for a quirky statement no matter where you put it, and I’m all about a quirky statement!
8 | Below Zero
This print captivated me as soon as I saw it! Resting above a crib or on a mantle, you will receive compliments no matter where this is in your home.
9 | Fullness I
I love the idea of this hanging in an entryway, but it’s also a thoughtful piece to display in a semi-themed nursery. The neutral tones allows this piece to be very transitional.
10 | Ocean Abstract
A lot like Ice Cream Social, this blue/green abstract piece is such a great choice for your baby boy’s nursery that can easily be used in an eclectic little boy’s room easily as well.
11 | Impressions
For any nature-lover, Impressions is a soft, beautiful piece that is timeless for your little boy or girl.
12 | Blue Agave
Blue Agave would be beautiful in a neutral, modern nursery as a light pop of color. The light blues and grays are also popular décor colors right now as well, so it could easily fit in many spaces throughout your home.
When buying art, or any pricier piece of home décor or furnishing, it’s worth spending a little more if you know that it will last for many years and also easily be used in many spaces in your home.
