Scale with Furniture

Let's talk scale! Consider how the prints and frames complement the furniture in your nursery. Avoid overwhelming a small room with large prints or making small prints disappear on a vast wall. Finding that sweet spot will tie the room together beautifully.

Create Visual Interest

Unleash your creativity and mix things up! Experiment with different sizes, orientations, and styles of prints and frames to create visual interest in your nursery. Dive into the world of gallery walls or make a bold statement with a captivating focal piece.

Leave Room for Growth

Think ahead! Remember to leave room for growth and future changes in your nursery decor. Opt for prints and frames that can easily adapt as your child grows, ensuring that your nursery remains a delightful space for years to come.

Consider Safety

Safety first! When hanging prints and frames in a nursery, make sure to securely anchor them to the wall. Keep heavy or breakable items out of reach of the crib or changing table to create a safe and nurturing environment for your little one.
