Little Frank's Nursery Artwork

This isn't exactly typical nursery decor, is it? However, we've read again and again that architect Frank Lloyd Wright's mother, Anna, placed etchings of cathedrals over young Frank's crib with hopes that he would one day become an architect.

We think prints like this could be really gorgeous in a nursery, offering lots of detail and interest for viewing over the years. And we're always won over by an adult, bookish aesthetic used unexpectedly in nurseries.

All that said - have you ever selected nursery decor for what it could inspire in your little one? Let's hear about it in the comments below.
