Guest Picks: Whimsical Wallpaper for a Girl's Room
I'm inspired to wallpaper my daughter's nursery. I have a 2-year-old and one on the way, and I think a whimsical, girly print is just what the space needs to make the room come alive. Here are a few of my favorites. — Morgan from Pepper Design Blog
Pink Elephants Wallpaper - $60
These darling elephants are too cute and look lovely against the light blue background. I love the illustration style as well.
Up, Up & Away Wallpaper - $60
The whimsical hot air balloons make this fanciful pattern come alive. How pretty are the soft shades of teal with the corals and pinks?
Coral Red Blossom Wallpaper - $60
The soft pinks of this floral wallpaper make the perfect accent wall backdrop behind a crib and changing table in a girl's nursery. I love the random flower arrangement and the watercolor style.
Watercolor Peony Wallpaper - $148
The sweet pastel pattern on this Anthropologie wallpaper makes my heart sing every time I see it. How beautiful is that mix of colors? And those pretty illustrations?
All Over Coral Spot Wallpaper - $47
This softer coral composition looks stunning with the beige leaf outlines. It almost looks as if nature has stamped herself right onto the walls.
Ikat Moroccan Wallpaper, Tuscan Mud - $60
Instead of a floral for a girl's room, how about a trendy (but lasting) pattern? This trellis print is great fun.
Linear Leaves Bright Wallpaper, Pink - $60
The colorful leaf pattern on this wallpaper brings in beautiful accent colors that are perfect for a girl's room. I especially love the light green, dark gray and raspberry pink.
Drawn Floral Coral Wallpaper - $60
This coral pink motif brings a simple pattern to life. It would look great on an accent wall.
Butterflies and Hearts Wallpaper - $60
For a bold accent wall, I'd choose a wallpaper that is graphic and full of one solid color — just like this butterfly pattern on a dark coral backdrop.
Betta Wallpaper, Persimmon - $170
For a little gold pizzazz, here's a brightly colored abstract wallpaper that is both daring and stunning. Wow, I love how this would look in a reading nook in a (very posh) girl's room.
Poppies Line Art Wallpaper - $60
Set on a neutral white background, these illustrated roses look so pretty. I love the delicate design and the sweet ambience it would add to a nursery.
AphroChic Juju Wallpaper, Pink & Silver - $185
I love the watercolor brushstrokes on this abstract wallpaper. It's soft and inviting and yet so modern and sweet.
Lily Elephant Wallpaper - $60
Elephants! They are just too cute and too perfect for a nursery. I love the watercolor motif that these guys bring to a space.
Peony Wallpaper - $79
The oversize poppies are so fun and perfect for a girl's space. I've seen this pattern painted right onto the wall by an artist before, and it makes a lovely, bold accent wall.
Bright Garden Flowers Wallpaper - $60
This wallpaper brings in quite a bit of detail and would be a showstopper in a nursery room. Wow, I just love those beautiful colors.
Bloom Clouds Wallpaper, Coral & Charcoal - $60
This print reminds me of Japanese artist Marimekko's oversize floral prints. I love the orange and coral colors.
Morning Bouquet Wallpaper - $60
I love the various sizes of roses and the brilliant colors in this pattern. It would make a great palette for building an entire space on.
Peonies Wallpaper - $60
For a more subtle and muted design, here's a pink and yellow abstract wallpaper that would look great on one large wall.
Margaret's Day In Wallpaper - $60
I love the whimsical swirls and florals in this pastel wallpaper. The gray background is a nice alternative to the usual tans and whites that most wallpapers feature. I would paper one wall with this and leave the rest of the room that soft gray tone.
Dancing Flowers Wallpaper - $60
This wallpaper offers a slightly more traditional take on the classic floral design. The colors are muted and perfect for a nursery.
Floral Matisse Wallpaper - $60
I imagine this wallpaper in a crisp, white nursery full of raspberry red and light pink accents. So pretty!
Romance Black & Pink Floral Wallpaper - $60
Black wallpaper is fun and unexpected in a child's room. The bright pastel pink dahlias bring a great pop to the space.
Eden Wallpaper - $60
The small scale of this wallpaper allows for pillows and accessories to be covered in big patterns. I love the colors as well.
Herringbone Wallpaper, Pink - $60
Herringbone prints continue to hold a soft spot in my heart, and I love the gradiated pink colors present here. How great would this look in a room? It would be almost as if the walls were covered in a pink grass cloth.
Sailing Ships Wallpaper, Coral - $60
Another great print with a bold background, this maritime wallpaper is awesome for little girl's with big adventurous spirits.
Barbara Hulanicki Ophelia Wallpaper, Red - $155
This is another option with a gray background for a nursery space. Plus, the bold pink palette makes the perfect statement.
Damsel Wallpaper, Coral - $98
Metallic shine might be the perfect alternative to a classic wallpaper. Here's a shimmery silver option for bold style.
Blazing Poppies Wallpaper - $148
This wallpaper is a bold and bright choice for a nursery, but I would paper just one large accent wall and leave the rest stark white. Then I'd pull dark navy, plum pink and bright orange straight from the palette to continue decorating the nursery space.
