Had many nice comments on the Fish Platter wall art.Read More
What beautiful art for my bathroom. I am impressed with everything about it. Really something to catch your eye..Read More
I am SO pleased with this purchase. First, the photo shown on the site doesn't suggest the material as it really is. It is described as a recycled oil drum, but the photo looks more ceramic. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is in fact steel and the gorgeous colors and painted designs are much more defined and beautiful in person. I've already received compliments, and it looks wonderful in my bathroom and perfectly accents the other beach and palm tree decor. Love the size too. It's just right. I'm so glad I finally decided to go for this unique and beautiful art work.Read More

The wall decor can set the mood for the entire room, so start with art and decorations that are fun, interesting, unique and special. Wall art appliques. Removable wall decor appliques and decals offer some of the best ideas for a baby's room. Printed plastic and vinyl wall decals come in a variety of colors and designs.

There are also decals that display words or phrases, such as well-known lines from nursery rhymes, prayers or beloved children's books. These look especially precious when posted on the wall above a baby's crib or cradle and can set the theme for the whole room. Framed art. As in any room, framed art can be the best way to add interest and beauty to nursery walls. Art is always personal, so choose a piece or grouping that speaks to you and your family.

Find a large quilt that harmonizes with your nursery decor or arrange several smaller ones in a delightful wall grouping. Letters. It has long been popular to decorate a nursery with letters. Spell out your little one's name with lovely, polished silver letters hanging from ribbons above the crib or use bright, colorful letters to showcase the alphabet or your little one's initials. You can add letters to your child's nursery in a variety of ways, from hand-painting them right onto the wall to utilizing lovely lettered wallpaper.
