Each year as Valentine’s Day approaches, I look for non-traditional ways to express love for my family and friends, and I try to apply this sentiment to my home décor. This year I thought it would be fun to add love to the nursery in the form of wall art. The right piece of inspired wall art can become the perfect way to say ‘I love you’ to your little one. I’ve collected some of my favorites below, to give you some ideas on adding a loving touch to your nursery. Mix and match with homemade elements for a one-of-a-kind statement.
This poster reminds me of my son, Joe. When Joe was little, he would tell me every night before bed, “Guess how much I love you?” from his favorite book by Sam McBratney. Red is often a great accent color for the walls in a boys room. It mixes beautifully with browns, greens and blues. This one below, “I love you to the moon and back” is a handmade pick from Etsy.
For the more modern at heart, check out this ‘eye’ catching chart idea below. I can’t get enough of this lovely pale pink, and the not-so-obvious love message is suitable for transitioning from nursery to bedroom.
I like the company Petit Collage for their all-natural wood products. All of their artwork is framed with acrylic in place of glass to keep it shatterproof and safe for a child’s room. From their Prints on Wood collection, The ‘Owl Love’ scene below is my favorite, it would look lovely above the changing table.
Clever alphabet interpretations are an always-welcomed addition to the nursery, and this one, from Jen Ramos via OhDeeOh, fits in perfectly with our love theme this week. I like the variation of black and white or full candy color, below.
Finally, from our own stylist Kate, check out these one-of-a-kind love letters, created using dried flowers, leaves, branches and assorted plants. If you want to expand on the loving elements in your child’s room, we also offer the words ‘dream,’ ‘baby,’ or any custom wording. Contact Shoshana to order ([email protected])
In my book, anything handmade adds real love to the nursery or bedroom. So mix and match from your collection of one-of-a-kind art, and spread a little love in your life.
The print on wood is just lovely! I’ll check out the site and see their other designs. Maybe I can also do one of my own…if it’s not too hard to make.
I think that the alphabet interpretations are great, but do they come in other colors. I like the LOVE design, but the black background is too serious and heavy for me.
Quinn– We too love those LOVE letters! We have used them over the past few years in photo shoots and in our showroom, and they have become so popular that we decided to make them for our customers as well.
Although they are handmade from dried flowers, leaves, branches and an assortment of other natural elements, they are well-constructed and designed to last for years when used as wall art. We are very cautious with our designs and we do not use any materials that may shed, as we assume that these items will be used in the nursery and quite possibly above a crib. I hope this answers your question, Quinn! If you’d like more information feel free to email us at [email protected].
I so LOVE (pun intended) that dried flowers, leaves and plants lettering. Very organic, very stylish and yet it’s so simple. I was wondering if it would somehow fall off in time, especially those that have leaves or flowers on it?
