Wallpaper in the Nursery: Get in on the Ground Floor

Wallpaper in the Nursery: Get in on the Ground Floor

This week Cortney and Bob designed a Manhattan apartment for young models just starting off their careers. The episode got me thinking. What can you add to a kid's room that adds freshness, beauty, and doesn't take up a lot of floor space? Models? No, silly! Wallpaper!

When assessing what these young models needed to make their tiny temporary apartment feel more like a home, the Novos, like any good parents, gave them a fun space and then filled the fridge with food. While the models looked a little confused about what to do with the food, they did seem to love the apartment design, which focused heavily on beautiful wallpaper.

The rooms looked way more finished with the decorative wallcoverings, and yet, the overall feel was still clean and minimal. What a perfect concept for a kid's room! And as designers are embracing wallpaper more and more, the selection is no longer limited to granny calicos or 80s pediatrician office waiting room prints. Bob and Cortney got theirs at Flavor Paper, but check these out:

While we've seen a handful nurseries with wallpaper (more on that later!) this is definitely a trend you can get in on the ground floor of.
