One of my favorite things about being pregnant was getting to conceptualize and decorate our son’s nursery. But decorating a nursery can get expensive. And sometimes, the budget just isn’t there to go all out in the ways we’d like to. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t still hang great art on the walls for our little ones to look at. With an unending supply of talented artists now selling their work online, it’s easy to find great stuff for affordable prices. Here are my picks for affordable art for your modern nurseries…
This retro style robot art makes me smile. It is perfect for a fun girls or boys room. The colors are soft enough to work for either girls or boys.

Pink Floyd Forever
This is one of my favorite lyrical quotes from an old Pink Floyd song. Forget nurseries, I kind of want this one for myself. ;)

I’d Cross The Oceans For You
Maybe I just have a thing for the ocean but this collection of blue hued wales is adorable. The colors are great, the whale shape is simple, and the vector style illustrations are perfectly modern.

Crying is For Babies… Other Babies
These prints make me laugh every time I see them. Why not have a great sense of humor from the very start?
Sycamore Street Press
A is for Ant
There are so many great alphabet inspired prints. I love this one with corresponding animals stealing the show.
Plum Street Prints
Custom Animal Art
How fun is this custom print where your baby’s name is spelled out with cartoon style animal prints? I love it.
Bright Black Sheep
You Make Me Happy…
This bright and happy print would add some color and joy to any little girl’s nursery walls.

A Whale of a Tale
I’m a sucker for this style of watercolor art. I have a print like this of a little bird in our living room. But these gorgeous wales would be beyond beautiful on the walls of a nautical nursery.
These pieces of art are cut from wood and then painted. I especially like this fun little phrase but the artist will do custom work for you too!
And Baby Makes Three
For a whimsical and modern nursery, this oh-so-sweet print of a tiny and new family would be adorable.
Always and Forever
Simple, typograpic art always makes a statement. I love the mix of colors in this one.

ABC, Easy as 1, 2, 3
This bright and swirly take on alphabet art is super charming. Pair with with a sunny and feminine nursery and you’ll be good to go!
For a woodland nursery, or for the Bambi lovers out there, I adore this modern and geometric interpretation of a baby deer. So pretty, so simple, so modern.
