We can help you remodel your baby’s nursery into a toddler’s wonderland. As your little one grows, his or her style choices may not mirror yours when you were first decorating the nursery. Your white on white obsession just may not be to your little one’s taste. So it’s fun to let your little man or little woman dig deep and explore their own sense of interior design style when it comes to making their bedroom feel like their very own.
Try animal print wallpaper. Animal prints remain the go-to choice for decorating your toddler’s bedroom. Now there are so many cool colors and animal prints big and small to choose from. Not only are animals playful and interesting, your toddler can also learn all about the magical Animal kingdom.

Create a hiding space. Anyone that has a toddler knows first hand how they love to play and hide. A sheltered haven for them to relax in is a fun way to use up some of your fabric rolls you’ve stored away and have been meaning to use. Try making a tee-pee or simple collapsible tent together.
New bed sheets and quilt covers. Taking your little one shopping to pick out his/her new bed linen is a great place to start to help them set the color theme. Your toddler will feel so special picking out their very own bed sheets and duvet covers.
Make art together and frame it. Painting with your little one is super fun and inspiring. Why not making some beautiful butterfly fold-overs or create some free spirited squish artwork together.
Namesake decorations. Allowing your little toddler to become familiar with their name is rewarding for their development. You don't have to over-do it, but having their name embroidered on a pillow, or in bold wooden letters, or stamped on fabric flags that you can hang from the ceiling are such fun ways to celebrate your toddler’s name and identity.
Add a height ruler. No toddler’s room in complete without a ruler to measure how your kiddo grows over the years. There are so many cool and interesting ways you can measure and track your child’s height over the years. There are many height rulers that come in decals and posters too that are available online. This one is our favorite.
Bunk beds are fun. As your toddler grows chances are that they’re going to have friends over for sleepovers all the time. Replace their single crib with a fun climbing tower and have an extra bed for friends when they come to stay. Bunk beds can also double as a great storage space too, so you can store extra toy boxes, books and clothes.
Swap out your baby mobile for a cool light fixture or ceiling mural. Hanging toddler mobiles or hand crafted light fixtures are a perfect way to ignite your little one's imagination when falling to sleep or waking up to the world. There’s no better relaxation technique then letting your little one fall asleep to airplanes or daisies as they gently swirl around. There are so many cool toddler mobiles to choose from. Check out some beautiful handcrafted mobiles available on Etsy from Scandinavia. You’ll be amazed!
