Examples of style and design of paintings in the interior of a children's room

When decorating the nursery, each parent wants to make the room a cozy place where the child can relax and learn. Most often, during repairs, they resort to themed wallpapers in the nursery, which after a while become irrelevant. In order to not have to make repairs every couple of years, you can use children's paintings in the room: this will create the right atmosphere, and there will be no problem with the loss of relevance.

Criterias of choice

In order to choose a picture in the nursery, you should adhere to several important criteria:

  • The size. Must match the size of the object below it. If these are large objects, such as a sofa, bed, or table, then the picture should be at least half the width of the furniture. You can use modular. The total width of the placement should not be less than 2/3 of the bed. Thus, the canvas will not look "lonely" or inappropriate. The height depends on the ceilings: if they are low, then you need to take vertical ones and vice versa. Thanks to the vertical paintings, the room will visually look taller than it actually is.
