Decorating your nursery can be both a fun, and overwhelming experience.
As an artist, I am often approached by expectant mothers in need of help with choosing art for their babies nurserys, and I love to help them curate the perfect collection. Here are some of my top tips for choosing art for your nursery.
1. Consider how you will you use your space: Decide how you are going to use your space. If your nursery will also be used as a playroom then you may want to consider pieces of art which art more vibrant and colourful like the artwork shown below. Babies love colourful shapes and patterns that help to stimulate their curiosity.

Your Happy Wall
Your gallery wall should be filled with all of the pieces of art that you love, it should create an interesting focal point, and help to tie your design scheme together.
With such a wide variety of artistic styles to consider, many people find it difficult to select the right pieces of art for their space. This guide will help you to create the perfect gallery wall for you.
Measure the width and height of the wall where you would like to display your art, this could be above your sofa, a console table, office desk, or anywhere else you would like to display your art.
2. Selecting Art
Choose pieces that make you feel happy inside.
3. Be Bold
Be brave with your selection of pieces, and don't be afraid to mix abstracts with florals, minimalist with mid century modern, and colour with monochromatic tones.
4. Add a Personal Touch
Add your favourite photographs, travel pictures, or your favourite family photos, different styles of frames, decorative mirrors and sculptures.
5. The Perfect Layout
Play with different layouts taking pictures of each one, choose the layout you’re happiest with and prepare to hang your art.
6. Hanging Your Art
You will need a spirit level, a hammer, nails, wire and pencil.
7. Love it
Once you’ve hung all of your pieces, stand back and admire your beautiful gallery wall!
