When we think of putting art in a child’s room, the first things that come to mind are bright, primary colors and juvenile images of trucks, cars, princesses and kittens, and then maybe nursery rhymes or famous movie and TV characters.  All of these ideas are fine, of course, but they do have their drawbacks.  Here are a few different ideas to consider.

Nature photography can create a wonderful atmosphere for a child’s room and there is a great selection of this type of art that you can purchase online.  Most children love animals and clear colorful prints of tigers and giraffes, or zebras and monkeys can be just as interesting.

The subtle, calming colors of most art photography are perfect for a little one’s bedroom, and the realistic portrayal of nature in an artistic photograph can also be very educational.  As the child grows and learns, the art on the wall can become a focal point of quiet time conversations and bedtime stories.

Choosing a more natural type of art also means that the child will not outgrow the room’s decor quite so soon.   Nature photography allows you to move from a simple decorating scheme for an infant, to a more complicated design for a preschooler, and still be effective for the more specific tastes of a young child.  For that matter, good nature photography can even move effortlessly into a completely different room in the house such as a family room or den.  Investing the money once to buy art such as this for a child’s room will indeed be money well spent.

One other thing you might want to consider before framing the art, is the option of having it mounted instead of framed. This is a process where the art print is fused to a backing and coated with a protective coating so that it can be displayed without frames or glass.  If you would rather frame the art, look for frames with art quality Plexiglass instead of glass just for safety reasons.

The art is the investment here, so if your client’s on a tight budget, you should spend less on the framing.  For a nursery, you might even consider plastic frames that compliment the colors of the photograph.  Large art photos for interior design purchased in poster size are really cute in a toddler’s room and you can purchase poster-size frames that can turn a whole wall into a work of art.
