There are so many wonderful kids’ room trends to explore, from ultra modern motifs to charming, crafty creations. Today’s featured whimsical items bridge the gap between the contemporary and the eclectic, beautifully enhancing modern and enchanting spaces alike. In fact, why does it have to be one or the other? Whether you’re a fan of clean-lined style or you like a more fluid, dreamy look, you can create a space that is both modern and magical. Enjoy!
Dreamy Accent Walls
Who doesn’t love a good accent wall?! If you’re not sure whether you want to take the plunge and paint or wallpaper the whole space, don’t fret. Start with one wall and make it special. We’re loving the scallop design on this wall featured in a photo from The Land of Nod:
Speaking of scallops, how eye-catching is this Genevieve Gorder Brass Belly Removable Wallpaper? And the “removable” part of the equation makes it perfect for those who don’t want to make any permanent changes…
If you like what you see, you’ll be delighted to discover that Genevieve Gorder has an entire collaborative line with The Land of Nod, which includes this striking Feather Flock Removable Wallpaper:
Oh how we adore a good nursery tour! When A Beautiful Mess featured beloved blogger Laura’s Nursery Tour, we couldn’t take our eyes off this DIY hand-painted wallpaper pattern (see below).
