Designing a nursery is a journey filled with anticipation and creativity. One important element that can truly transform the space into a haven for your little one is the addition of wallpaper as the central theme. When it comes to wallpaper, there are many great sources. A common starting point is  Pinterest (check out our boy and girl nursery wallpaper inspiration boards!). You can also find various prints on Etsy, Spoonflower (expensive but worth it), Project Nursery, and even Amazon. Let's explore how the right wallpaper can serve as the centerpiece in crafting a dreamy and enchanting environment for your baby.


For a fun, bright, and girly nursery, the floral route is one of the most common and beloved direction. The picture below on the left (found on our Pinterest board!) is a perfect example of wallpaper as the focal point of the nursery. Everything else in the nursery fades to neutral. The beautiful wallpaper is made by Rocky Mountain Decals and is called "Snowy Rose".

The center wallpaper is Summer Wildflower by Spoonflower, for those looking for lavender colors in the nursery. Finally, on the right, we have a classy and beautiful blue floral called Florence from Project Nursery.

At Liz and Roo, we also have a classical and super popular floral print called Blush Watercolor. This is one of our best selling patterns and can also be run as a wallpaper to coordinate with the bedding. Just email us at and we can set that up for you! 

Buffalo Check

Buffalo Check is a perennial favorite. What is great about this wallpaper is that it is so versatile. If you change the room into an office, guest room, or your child grows out of their crib, the buffalo check will transition perfectly. You can coordinate this buffalo check wallpaper from Spoonflower with our different taupe buffalo check products! This will add a little more pizazz to the nursery and will make for a great neutral environment. For a touch of color, add navy colored frames! Navy is a great coordinate with taupe buffalo check. The pillow sham and crib rail cover are available on our website. The pillow is great back support in your glider and the rail cover can compliment the wall. 

Buffalo Check in pink is also a great baby girl option. See below for a customer's nursery, including the window valance that we created with pom pom trim and scalloped finish. 


A dog themed nursery can be for a boy or girl! There are so many dog-themed wallpapers available. For a boy, think Dalmatians with fire trucks or golden retrievers. For girls, think of poodles in Paris or French bulldogs. Or the other way around! In all, a dog themed nursery can be done so many different ways.

For both boys and girls, the brand Muks & Me has a beautiful print full of different dogs. This wallpaper comes in a pink, blue, and taupe color. With whatever color your choose, coordinate the pillows and small decor accent pieces in the nursery. The print on the left (below) is a customer's gorgeous dog nursery. She choose her dog wallpaper is from Spoonflower, called the Neutral Pop Doodle Dog (also comes in many other colors!). Her color-matching crib rail cover is our very own Flax Linen with Knot Ties, monogrammed. Check out our blog that is all about Creating a Pawsitively Adorable Nursery!


Bows prints are so beautiful and feminine in a baby girl nursery. You can find so many different types of bow wallpapers in various colors and sizes. A personal favorite is from A-Street Prints. Their Baby Bow Ribbon Trellis Faded Primrose Wallpaper is very popular on Pinterest. One of our own customers used it in her nursery along with our Nursery Rhyme Toile crib sheet and blanket, Petal Pink Ruffled crib rail cover, and Petal Pink crib skirt


Create a whimsical nursery full of life with a woodland theme! Like the other prints listed, this one is highly versatile and can be found and made in many colors and patterns. One woodland print that we love is from Project Nursery. This print (shown below) is called the Oh Deer Wallpaper Mural in Dark Gray. Any dark or light colored bedding and decor will coordinate perfectly with it. For some help finding bedding items, check out our Woodland Collection!


This is such a fun approach to designing your baby's room and will give them a fun and full of life space! We found a beautiful African Jungle Safari Wallpaper Mural from Koko Art Shop. This wallpaper has neutral shading and coloring that will not be too hard to match decor and bedding with. It is a very versatile wallpaper that will be super fun to accent! For a more subdued option, on the right we have the Vintage Safari wallpaper from Project Nursery.


A golf themed nursery? Yes, you read that right. This nursery will for sure be loved by all family golfers. Spoonflower has hundreds of options for golf wallpapers, something you can't find everywhere.

Our favorite of all of the options is the Hamptons Historic Golf Courses Toile. This print is so elegant and is available in multiple different colors! Once the nursery no longer serves as a baby haven, this wallpaper can stay. It is perfect for a teen boy or girls room, guest room, or office. 


A rainbow nursery is super fun and bright idea. For decor that can go along with the wallpaper, keep it neutral and focus on solids. An example of a neutral detail to add is our Flax Linen Pillow with a monogram! We found a beautiful rainbow wallpaper on Etsy by NikkelArtcom


Last but not least, we have a circus wallpaper. Circus themed rooms are so much fun to plan and decorate. There are many things you can do for a circus-themed nursery that your baby will surely want to keep when they grow up. We found an adorable wallpaper print from OnDecor called Circus Kids wallpaper. It is adorable and not too busy, making it easy to accessorize the nursery.

Nursery Additions!

A staple for all nurseries is a mobile. Mobiles for above cribs can be found anywhere for all different types of prices. However, we have always recommended the Pehr Mobiles. Their mobiles are amazing quality and they have many different options of colors and characters. It is nearly impossible to find one that won't coordinate with your chosen wallpaper! Shown below is the adorable Field of Dreams mobile.
