Striped Walls Nursery Decorating Ideas for a Baby Boy or Girl
We have lots of nursery decorating ideas featuring wall stripes for baby girls and boys as well as some pictures featuring examples of rooms painted and decorated in neutral colors that would be suitable for either.
You will quickly see how pretty striped walls can be when paired with many modern prints and wall decorations as well as how much money can be saved by painting your own stripes when compared with the price of buying wallpaper for a baby's nursery not to mention the cost of a professional hanging it.
Dusty blue and ivory stripes are very elegant in combination with a harlequin pattern.
The diamond wall painting technique
is a favorite of DIY decorators.
You might paint the lower portion of the wall in stripes in lieu of wainscoting with a painted border featuring polka dots.
To add height to a room with a low ceiling; paint stripes from the floor all the way up to the crown molding.
The light and dark brown paint color combination chosen for this baby boy's room contrasts nicely with the powder blue fabric of the crib set.
The use of mirrors such as the one that displays Sam's initial "S" in this example are excellent nursery decorating ideas when working with a small space.
Some parents prefer to paint only the lower portion of the wall in stripes as is the case in this baby girl's room.
The pink and green stripes are topped by a chair rail with a border of dancing sheep. The pattern is an original design created by the baby's mother.
A blue and brown wall paint color combination is a favorite for a baby boy's nursery.
The soft blue and taupe colors used to paint the stripes creates a peaceful atmosphere.

Pink and white horizontal stripes painted on a baby girl's nursery wall are a lovely contrast to the chevron stripes of the baby bedding set.
Painting horizontal rather than vertical stripes will visually extend the length of the room.
A blend of stripes with modern geometric prints is very attractive.
The horizontal wall painting technique is complemented with geometric and chevron stripes featured in the curtains and room decorations.
The touch of "zig zag" stripes is small but effective.
For a baby boy, blue and brown stripes are preferred. The masculine colors can be softened by adding fabric decorations hung with wide baby blue satin ribbons.
A nursery for a baby boy may feature wall stripes that have been painted in various shades of chocolate brown, tan and cornflower blue. The decorator of the room in this photo said that her goal was to achieve a nursery that was contemporary with a modern feel. A room in blue and brown has always been one of my favorite color schemes. She had dreamed of the day when she could put her ideas to work in her baby boy's nursery.
Vertical wall stripes in a pink and brown color scheme are lovely in a baby girl's nursery room.
CHOCOLATE BROWN and BLUE NURSERY BEDDING
Celestial bedroom themes have always intriqued me, but most are in a pale shade of baby blue with bright yellow stars which wouldn't work with my nursery decorating ideas in blue and brown.
When I found the moon and stars nursery bedding set online with the patchwork crib quilt in what I considered to be the very best baby boy color scheme in the world, I was delighted! This baby bedding set would fit with my ideas of what was the perfect nursery decor for a boy.
As soon as the crib set came in the mail, I began to brainstorm colors for painting stripes on the nursery walls and by the end of the day, the perimeter of the nursery was taped and I had painted all of the cornflower blue wall stripes.
Next came the stripes in coffee tan and getting out of the way for the installation of our brand new nursery floorcovering. The latex paint was dry to the touch, I warned them not to scratch my fresh paint.
Finally I got to brush the rich, chocolate brown stripes on the nursery walls. This dark accent color is what really made me know that my nursery decorating ideas were going to fall into place just fine.
At week's end, to put the finishing touches on our nursery's decor, we went to the discount home store to get some decorative wooden molding for the chair rail. I worried that the bold colors and the espresso stained baby furniture might make the bedroom seem dark or small, then I thought of one of the nursery decorating ideas my friend had used to make her nursery seem larger; a wall mirror! I bought a large mirror shaped like a star to hang over the baby's dresser. I love how much bigger and brighter it made the room look!
I hope that you like my baby nursery pictures and hope that you will send yours into to Unique Baby Gear Ideas so that we can see your nursery decorating ideas and how you painted your baby's room!
