Where To Start With Art:

Choosing artwork for your nursery can be a fun and exciting process, but it can also be overwhelming with so many options to choose from. Here are some tips to help you choose artwork for your nursery:

Consider the Theme:

Art: Yellow Flowers - Kane Lehanneur

First and foremost, think about the theme or color scheme you want for the nursery. Do you want a whimsical, animal-themed nursery or a more modern, minimalist design? Knowing the theme or colour scheme will help guide your artwork choices and make sure they complement the overall look and feel of the room. Don't be afraid to go bold, think of art as a hand me down, it will be cherished for years to come so it doesn't have to be 'baby-ish', your baby will be a child before you know it and you are influencing a future little creative soul, so lead with your gut and heart instinct and pick something fun, quirky and fresh.


Think About the Size:

Consider the size of the artwork and where you want to hang it. A larger piece can make a bold statement, but you want to make sure it doesn't overpower the room. Smaller pieces can be grouped together for a gallery wall or used as accents throughout the room.


Look for Interactive Art:

Furniture: Hem - Boa Pouf

Interactive art can be a great addition to a nursery. For example, a wall decal that can be moved around or a piece with different textures can provide a sensory experience for your child or a soft piece of furniture that can be snuggled in and becomes a focal point of the room.


Personalize it:

Art: Claire Devine

Consider personalizing the artwork with your child's name or birth date. This can make the piece more meaningful and create a special connection between your child and the artwork or even commission a piece by your favourite local artist that references your childs name, birth month, birth stone or even star sign.


Safety First:

Art: Studio Arco

When choosing artwork for a nursery, make sure it's safe and non-toxic. Avoid anything with sharp edges, small pieces, or toxic materials. Always make sure it is secured to the wall.


Have Fun:

Above all, have fun with the process! Choosing artwork for your nursery should be a fun and enjoyable experience. Don't be afraid to get creative and choose pieces that make you and your child happy and most importantly, make sure you love looking at it, there is nothing worse than picking a piece because it is all over instagram only to have it date 6 months from purchase.

Happy art hunting!
