I'm loving the return of wallpaper in children's decor. Yes, wallpaper can be a little pricey once you purchase it and have it installed, but consider it instant artwork. You literally don't need to put up anything else on the wall, except for maybe a mirror. Here are some of my favorite new prints out there which would make a statement in any child's room.

Daydream Wallpaper, Blue - $125
First off, I like anything in a teal blue! Second, the birds are whimsical and not too childish — perfect for any age.
Emily Marie Cox for Hygge & West-Busy Town, Oatmeal - $165
I like this one for a girl's playroom because it evokes a natural sense of make believe.
Aimee Wilder Wallpaper - Squirrels in Latte - $146
Who doesn't like squirrels?
Tempaper Tots Tusk Temporary Wallpaper - $85
Not only is this wallpaper adorable with the little elephants, but it is also temporary. Perfect for commitment-phobes.
Jill Malek Baby Elephant Walk Wallpaper - $165
I'm not sure what colorway I like best, but probably this neutral one. Doesn't it almost look like the elephants are kissing? This one is perfect for the minimal modern nursery.
Amy Butler Lacework Blue Floral Wallpaper
Here is a pretty paper with a vintage flair for a big girl's room or a nursery. This paper would look great in any cottage home.

This one is a cute cityscape paper which has more of a European, whimsical touch. I like the black and white with a splash of random color.
Ferm Living - Animal Farm Wallpaper - $103.50
All kids like animals. What better way to teach kids about animals than putting creatures on the walls to look at every day? This kelly green print works for both boys and girls.
Blue Dragon Wallpaper For Children - EUR 60
Finally, knights and dragons on a wallpaper! It is adorable and makes quite the statement in a boy's room.
Purple And Silver Dinosaur Wallpaper for Children - EUR 60
Dino Dan (or any boy for that matter) would kill for this wallpaper. Available in many different color waves from bright to subtle (and now in fabric).
Quentin Blake's ABC Wallpaper - EUR 35
Quentin's ABC's is perfect for a playroom or child's room, because there is nothing like visual educational reinforcement. You are almost forcing your child to practice their ABC's!
Whole Wide World Wall Panel - EUR 167
This wallpaper mural is educational and good looking at the same time. I love how each continent is a different pattern.
Kasper Wallpaper, Gold - EUR 65
An elegant doodle of a city makes this work for any children's space in your home for a boy or girl.
Butterfly Meadow Wallpaper, Mauve And Blue - EUR 35
What little girl would not want a wall full of butterflies? The colors in this paper are gorgeous!
Out to Sea Map Wallpaper - EUR 85
This print is adorable for a nautical bathroom. Although it is cartoon inspired, it is still beautiful and playful.
Ebba Wallpaper, Blue - EUR 65
Pretty periwinkle balloons form a nice backdrop for this wallpaper. I like these because they almost look hand-painted!

Pretty and feminine, yet, with the added touch of turquoise, this floral pattern would look great for a nursery up to an adult's room. I'm smitten by it.
Cavern Home Blackbird Wallpaper Snow - $155
Here is an old favorite, and great for the nature-inspired nursery.

This is a great scene for a kid's room in a ski home.
