large paper wall flowers for a floral nursery design

Tips for Designing Your Nursery with Paper Flowers

A nursery full of florals is one that will always be on trend. While it is classic and elegant you can also use bright paper flowers to make a statement nursery. The hardest part is picking the colors for your floral nursery. Pink, coral, purple, and aqua are just a few color palettes we can’t get enough of and when you add three-dimensional flowers to the mix it’s even better. These large paper flowers used as wall decor are one of our favorite nursery trends right now. There are so many great things about paper wall flowers. We love how unique they are and the dimensional look they give is a great perk. Remember texture is important in the nursery, and with a 3D look, they bring in plenty of that. Wall art can be tricky to find, but these large paper flowers make it easy to decorate. 

Picking your Paper Flower Color Palette

It’s best to start with your nursery bedding when choosing a color palette. The paper flowers are usually handmade by most designers so you can typically customize the colors to match. Once you have picked your colors, the paper flowers can easily be added to fill your walls. With this nursery, our Boho Chic Floral Fringe bedding has a beautiful watercolor floral design with multiple shades of coral and peach so we paired it with our coral and peach paper wall flowers. Now if gold isn’t one of your accents, we can have our designer make changes to create the colors you need, just contact us and let us know!

Dark floral nurseries are also on-trend, so why not pair these two popular trends together? One of our favorite dark floral collections is our Emery's Mint & Navy Floral Bedding. This bedding collection features a soft denim fabric with a pop of mint & neutral ivory, this combination is the perfect color palette to match our neutral paper flowers. You can even pair our printed floral nursery curtains to help border the paper wall flowers like in the nursery below.

Pairing Wall Art with Paper Wall Flowers

Another great feature of our giant paper flowers is how large they are. This customer purchased our pink petunia crib sheet and we love how she added this name sign to her crib wall and then spaced the flowers out. The flowers help border the name sign and make a great statement piece as far as over-the-crib decor goes.

Who doesn’t love a wood name sign? We also love the cutout wood monogram; it’s so easy to pair these with paper wall flowers. You can place them over the crib, or even over a changing table. Oftentimes the hardest space in your nursery to fill is the perfect spot for unique pieces.  Our custom name signs and initial monograms come in natural wood so you can spray paint them any color to match your nursery or even use mod podge and glitter. You can easily create a one of a kind look by pairing these pieces together.

Adding Color with Giant Paper Flower Designs

Flowers are meant to bring beauty and color to your nursery. Graphic Designer and photographer Jenny Mit found these beautiful paper flowers on Etsy and paired them perfectly with our Blush and Gold Dot Bedding Collection. We love the pop of color she added with the giant paper flowers above the crib. So remember you can add pops of color in multiple ways, from bedding to wall décor.
