10 Modern Nurseries with Wallpaper

If I had my way, my whole house would be covered in wallpaper. But my husband is concerned about “resale value,” so for now I’ll settle with just the powder bath. Or I’ll sneak some into Beck’s room while he’s away. Look how great a pop of pattern can look in a nursery.

    I like how the furniture and decor stand out amongst the dark backdrop. Dramatic and pretty.

    This cloud and bird pattern is so soothing. Looks like the baby agrees.

  • Floral + Birds

    Floral + Birds

    This nursery has long been a favorite of mine even though the pattern is more traditional than I’m usually drawn to. I think it’s the colors and the beautiful furniture.

  • Trees


    I love yellow but it’s tough to get the right shade with paint. This wallpaper would be a safer choice.

  • Elephant


    This repeating elephant pattern almost looks hand stamped. So intricate and pretty.

  • Branches


    This pattern is sophisticated enough to grow with the child.

  • Mountains


    I love citron and the organic placement of these mountain peaks.


  • Animals


    I like that even though the pattern is busy, the animal silhouettes are a solid color. It makes for a good focal point without being overwhelming.

  • Dinosaurs


    This pattern is actually subtle since it’s an outline. Also, can we talk about how great those mom and dad silhouettes are? I’m adopting that idea.

  • Foliage


    This vintage pattern makes quite the statement. Not for the faint of heart.
