Create a Watercolor Wonderland Nursery

Grab your paintbrush! Watercolors are washing their way into the nursery design arena, just as we predicted! The versatility of watercolors makes their application easy and abundant for all decor styles. Seek out soft, muted washes of color as a subtle detail or go bold with a pigmented splash for an energizing design moment!

Don’t think watercolors are only for wall art anymore. We are seeing this nursery design trend on crib sheets, swaddles, pillows, wall decals, wallpapers and art from small to super large. See how some of our readers have incorporated this nursery trend of 2017 into their little’s spaces.
