Deck The Walls

Creative ideas from Project Nursery

Painted walls can be lovely, and subtle wallpaper chic, but for DIY enthusiasts looking to add more wow factor to the perimeter of baby's room, here are five gorgeous ideas from our talented friends at Project Nursery.
 
Triangulation: Wall decals turn sophisticated when applied in an allover geometric pattern on one wall. And a pink-and-gold color combo is very glam. (Large triangle details are $35 for a set of 12 at wallsbymur.com.)
 
Quatrefoil: Quatrefoil is still trending in a big way, and with its classic roots, it won't feel outdated as soon as the paint dries. On this navy wall with white quatrefoil, the pattern was achieved using a stencil. (The stencil is $39.95 at cuttingedgestencils.com.)
 
Washi: Thoughtfully applied washi tape creates a beautiful, modern, and one-of-a-kind wall treatment. (Washimatta washi tape is $22.70 for a set of 10 at etsy.com.)

Splashy wallpaper: Using wallpaper on just one accent wall gives you the opportunity to bring in bold designs without overwhelming the space. ("Daydream" removable wallpaper is $33 per tile at hyggeandwest.com.)
 
Big dots: Applying metallic dots (cut from contact paper!) to a solid wall lends the look of luxe metallic wallpaper for a fraction of the cost. (Silver contact paper is $10.97 per roll at homedepot.com.)
