Your baby's nursery is the first room they will call their own, so it's important to make the room special. It's also quite likely you'll be spending a fair amount of time in there yourself, whether late nights feeding, reading stories or playing, so make sure it has some of these fantastic nursery wall décor ideas.

Once you've sorted the big-ticket items like choosing the paint colour, buying a cot and changing table (and kudos to you if you assembled it yourself too), it's time for the real fun - the accessorising!

Whatever theme you've gone for - be it woodland, pirates, jungle, space, princesses, or a favourite character such as Winnie-the-Pooh or Peter Rabbit, we've found some gorgeous nursery wall art ideas to complete your tot's new bedroom.

Need a little inspiration? Check out the growing nursery décor trends for 2022.

Gender-neutral: Gone are the days of pink being purely for girls and blue for boys. We are seeing more of a gender-neutral theme to current trends, and it’s really refreshing. We're seeing more warmth being added to spaces with mellow yellows, woody tones, and the use of multi-colours that are echoed in the other popular trends for 2022.

Nature: Safari was a popular trend for 2021 that's still popular this year. Drawing on places far and wide, we're expecting this to expand even further - think ocean themes, global wall features, animal print, night sky themes, and photos of faraway destinations.

Boho: Boho is predicted to be a growing trend for 2022, with botanicals, macrame wall hangings, pastels and earthy colours such as browns and terracotta being heavily featured against clean white walls. Natural materials such as wood, rattan and cane also bring the outdoors in for a bit of Boho chic, making your nursery space feel warm, cosy and relaxed, whilst staying close to nature.

Bright colours: White, black, and monochrome has been all the rage over the past year, but in 2022 we're beginning to see growing popularity with bright colours such as pink and green. We're thinking abstract prints, rainbow motifs, and colourful bunting.

Disney and Pixar: Who doesn't love a good old Disney film? Packed with charm, loveable characters, nostalgia, and magic, it's always an easy addition to the bedroom wall. According to the experts at Babysense, the most popular themes gaining popularity this year include 'The Princess & the Frog', 'Aladdin', 'Snow White', 'Moana', and 'Bambi'. We're talking cute, cuddly characters, theme crossovers with nature, and loveable stories for adults and children alike.
