Go classic! Decorate a nursery with a classic wallpaper design
When the nesting instinct kicks in, you might want nothing more than to create a space that surrounds your future child with fluffy bunnies, wide-eyed owls or pretty little puppies. But just because there’s going to be a baby in there, it doesn’t mean your nursery has to be baby-ish.
While there are thousands and thousands of super cute wallpaper designs for the special little person in your life to choose from, you don’t have to go with a wallpaper designed specifically for nurseries. Why not consider decorating with a classic wallpaper design instead and creating a feature wall that will last well beyond the toddler stage?
If you decorate a nursery with a wallpaper design that isn’t baby-ish, the nursery won’t date and you’ll have the flexibility of changing rooms in future without having to worry about the expense of changing wallpaper.
