When my husband first started gutting the second floor of our house, I was thrilled that the attic-y space had such beautiful, sweeping ceilings. Magical for a nursery, I thought. Then I realized there were only a few 90-degree walls available for decorating.
Anything I chose to hang would have to pass the love test for sure. And no bold color for the walls (because it'd compete with the ceiling and create odd lines). I went with a neutral tone and added color through toys, books, and a mix of thrifted nostalgia. One favorite toy purchase was a wooden tea set by Plan Toys--complete with wooden sugar cubes!
We also love the Wallies tree decal. It makes a fun growth chart and offers tons of little mushrooms and critters for peeking from behind baseboards and around corners.
