I don't know if it's my East coast childhood memories of busting out the knee socks, but argyle always means fall to me. Argyle sweaters, argyle socks, and argyle scarves are de rigueur in preppy circles, but argyle home decor incorporates well into lots of different styles.

If you want to go all in on argyle, why not try an accent wall? I've rounded up 5 nurseries that use argyle on the walls in sometimes bold, sometimes subtle, always beautiful ways.

1. Baby Boy Nursery at Trends and Traditions. Heather shows you how to achieve her single argyles by using construction paper to lay out your initial design.

2. A Patterned Nursery on Project Nursery (see the wall in progress at Decorating Obsessed). Inspired by an actual argyle sock, this mom chose a bright color palette for her accent wall and incorporated much of the room's other decor.

3. Teddy's Argyle Room
at Plain Jane Boutique. This multi-colored wall was inspired by a piece of scrapbook paper and lots of enthusiasm.

4. Henry's Nursery
on Project Nursery. This argyle column was inspired by the colors of the crib bedding. A single column of argyle brings the many colors of the sheets onto the wall color.

5. Clay's Nursery
at Baby Makes Three. The tonal colors of this argyle make it more subtle than others, but the effect is just as striking.
