When it comes to nursery decorating ideas, there is an amazing abundance of nursery pins, nursery themes and nursery decor inspiration when designing a space for your wee little one -- and can anything be more fun
?? One of the most creative and cost-effective ideas for decorating a nursery is to stencil it
- not only can you use any color scheme but there is also a wide variety of stencil pattern styles to choose from. Stencils from Royal Design Studio
are also easy to use and perfect for any surface from the walls and ceiling to the fabrics and furniture. In fact, a few of our creative friends designed gorgeous stenciled nurseries and we thought they might inspire you to create the perfect magical space for your bundle of joy!
The Ornamental Cartouche Stencil
fits this nursery's regal design perfectly
, don't you think? The elegant pattern is from our Allover Damask Stencils Collection
and is very versatile. Decorative artist Allyson Jones Wong
used it as a repeating stenciled wall pattern
here but you could also use it as a random motif or even as a singular stenciled focal point on a nursery dresser or canvas wall art. Allyson created the background wall finish with a crosshatch paint effect. Lovely!
While there are endless color options for nurseries, a neutral color scheme can be striking as well -- especially when paired with a stencil pattern! Sarah of the Cozy. Cottage. Cute.
blog wanted a fresh and airy modern cottage vibe for her son Cooper's nursery. She says that her friends comment the most about the "cool" stenciled wall
with the Endless Circles Lattice Moroccan Stencil
. Her chic nursery DIY project was also featured in Apartment Therapy.
Visual stimulation with colors and patterns helps a baby thrive and develop
- and is there anything more precious than seeing your baby's eyes light up? Creative customer Taryn Palisano had this in mind while creating a happy balance of neutrals and vibrant colors with a gray, gold and white design scheme. She used the large size version of our Modern Chevron Wall Stencil
for the stenciled focal wall with her twin's cribs. SO adorable!
Stencils aren't just for walls! Decorative Artist Joanie Valenti stenciled fabulous patterns on the wood floor of her grandson's nursery
. Both the Curved Connection Moroccan Stencil
and the Rockin' Roses Damask Stencil
for the outer bands of the nursery's stenciled floor. It's really such an eye-catching, creative stencil project. Are you as "floored" by this project as we are?
Royal Design Studio stencil customer Joan Chamberlain opted to create stenciled art for the nursery walls! The day and night themed nursery art canvases have beautiful mural work and you can spy our Kimono Allover Stencil adding a gentle pattern in the background. You can use this idea to create inexpensive and creative DIY canvas art! Simply stencil your desired nursery colors as the background art and then add your preferred foreground patterns like letters, numbers, silhouettes and more. Easy easy and made with love!
Sweet tweets are anything but dull and our Flock of Birds Wall Stencil
for a nursery. These were stenciled twice in contrasting colors to create a glorious display of birds in flight
but you can also use repeat them just once to create a simple and pretty allover wall design, too! Be sure to catch the entire Bonnie Christine Stencil Collection
