The Nursery: Looking Up

Originally I wanted to wallpaper the whole nursery, which I have not completely ruled out, but most recently I have been pondering just doing the ceiling. The first samples are in and I am not sure what to think....There are several I really like but they all have their own problems: too large of scale (not that that would stop me), too dark on low ceilings (probably would not stop me either), big price tags for this purpose (okay this one might be a deal breaker). There are still some more on the way, I will let you know when those arrive. Here are some more that did not make the cut for this project but I do love them...


Especially this one. Beaded, metallic paper? Yes please, you need to be used in a client's home or my future home...

PS- Thank you for the birthday wishes, y'all are too sweet.

Oh, I'm loving your idea! Your baby will be never bored! :-)

I love your choices, they're all very interesting and calming. Nothing too much and I like that. My baby will share bedrooms with one of my other 2 children. So, I can't start doing anything right now and our baby will stay in our bedroom for the first months. But I can't wait to move and have have a bedroom just for him (her). I'm already getting inspired by you! Thank you!


By the way, did you enjoy your B-day???

Wishing you a very blessed week!

I love this idea! I was hoping to do the same in my son's nursery but the husband wasn't into it :(
Can't wait to see your's!

I say if you do it go for something with some punch to it, bold, and fun. The muted calm ones are nice but little ones tend to stare at the ceiling for endless hours so make sure he has something wonderful and unique to look at.
I can't wait to see this space finished up!!! xo

I see a couple I really like! I can't wait to see it finished with whatever you choose. I'm sure it'll look fantastic.

If the cost of wallpapering the ceiling is too much, maybe you can stencil it.
Hope you enjoyed your birthday.

I love the largest sample

Melissa said...

Go graphic-- good for the baby's brain. They are supposed to really like black/white contrast. I think you could justify additional expenses in an effort to enhance your child's development:) I'm with Stephanie-- I like the largest, and the starburst-y one next to it.

I love the beaded metallic paper. Can you tell me who makes this wallpaper? I am about to redecorate my bedroom, and I think this would be great on a focal wall.

Such a great idea! They are all perfect contenders! Can't wait to see what direction you go in.

I'm loving the crosshatch design and the interlocking y's, but really all of your choices are chic! Very exciting to see the nursery in progress!

Love this idea!(although my neck hurts just thinking about hanging wallpaper on the ceiling) Your possible choices all look terrific! Can't wait to see what you choose.

I loved the feedback. The metallic beaded wallpaper is Osborne and Little Kikko Trellis.

What fun idea! Love the blue and white one.

OOOh the one metalic that did not make the cut would be stunning in an entry hall. I just did a post on entries and wallpaper is one of the suggestions to make your entry stand out, this would do the trick,Kathysue

What a fantastic idea to wallpaper the ceiling since babies spend most of their time looking up!

LindsB said...

I love the one right smack in the middle of the photos- its a pretty design, not too dark and not too big in scale. I cant wait to see which one you pick!!

I'm late to respond (and you've probably considered this), but what about wallpaper for a feature wall - like behind the crib. I have seen a few nurseries with a wallpaper wall that I loved. Can't wait to see it all come together!
