Art for Kids’ Rooms

Affordable Art for Nurseries

We’ve talked about affordable art for adults but what about little dudes? Here are 15 sweet picks…

These are cute, too!

P.S. 12 shared kids rooms, and a charming nursery tour.

  1. That’s Anton’s room?? Love it! Do you have a full (recent) house tour??

  2. Laura B. says...

    I am really eager to get my hands on a vintage rug like the one you have here. Mind sharing where you found it? I’ve been doing some etsy searching, but hard to figure out the good sellers.

    Thanks!
    Laura

  3. Great choices! I especially love all of the sweet animals, in no small part because I also have an Etsy shop where I sell watercolor paintings of dogs, cats and all sorts of creatures, including a dog alphabet print that is a real hit for nurseries, as well as custom pet portraits! Many of my prints wind up in kids’ rooms and nurseries and I love to see them there! http://www.etsy.com/shop/wanderinglaurfineart

    Am I the only one thinking that these are so lovely for adults too? :o)

  14. This post came at a perfect time because we are in the process of transitioning Luna’s room. Of course I am kinda obsessed with all things moon but I’m trying not to go too crazy by still adding different things she likes.

  15. Where is the kilim rug from?! ;)

  16. Louisa says...

    These are so adorable! I love all the unique alphabet art out there.
    I have just (last week!!! eeeek) opened up my Etsy shop where I make balanced paper mobiles. My mission is to create mobiles that work in ANY space, from babies rooms to offices. If you have trouble finding something to hang on a wall then it’s always worth considering hanging something from the ceiling!

      Your tiny dancer print is incredible.

      I can’t decide which print I like most… beautiful!!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      so lovely!! thanks so much for sharing, melissa!

  18. I love that night night art work. I feel like that is the most common phrase I say to my son while in his room.

  19. Katharine says...

    Love this post, I am hoping to squeeze my boys into a room together soon and some new artwork might be in order!

  20. Cynthia says...

    Love the polar bear. He/she looks like the one on the Kate Spade winter scarf. Maddie the coonhound is cute too.

  21. Jo says...

    Love the Polar Bear! Joanna, where did you buy your kid’s furniture?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      we usually look on land of nod, ikea, ebay, oeuf, and craiglist. thank you! xo

  22. This art is so adorable! I don’t have kids yet, but I can’t wait to decorate a someday-baby room with bright colors like these!

    I also plan on putting my future babes in the kid socks that Restless Socks is coming out with – they’re just as bright and fun as each of these pieces of art, and they’re the perfect sized socks to keep my future kids’ feet cozy and cute!

  23. SO TICKLED to see my construction crane print here! xx Jorey

    • Rosemary says...

      I wish I had seen this when my son was small – he was so obsessed with all vehicles, especially cranes! I will keep it in mind for future gifts!

  24. Amy Schute says...

    Great picks!

  25. The ballerinas are classic and perfect for a little girls room!

  26. Chelsea says...

    where is that world map from in the first picture??

  27. That polar bear is so amazing! I also love the “There’s No Place Like Home” print. They’re both so friendly.

    I also sell nursery prints along with paper and fabric maps! :) http://finkastudio.etsy.com

    • She does custom pet portraits! I’ve been looking for someone just like her. Thank you!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      these are so charming!

  28. What a funny coincidence! Precisely today I am looking for art for my kids’ room because I am decorating it for the One Room Challenge…
    This post couldn’t be more perfectly timed.

  29. So adorable! I don’t even have kids and I would hang these on my wall. I especially love the Polar Bear and Ferris Wheel.

    love that ferris wheel!!
