Nursery walls are decorated for parents, not children.
Of course they are. On the other hand, if you have the chance to draw spaceships on your walls in a socially acceptable situation, you shouldn't really miss the opportunity.

I agree with this, but if you want something nerdy on the walls, why not something from this shop?

example:



I bought a couple of things from ThinkGeek, but this one is great.

Cover the ceiling in multi-colored lights that blink when you play Mozart.

I love a bunch of her stuff. It's totally for the parents rather than the baby, but still!

Re: Opinion about Baby Nursery Imagery

Hanging a mobile like this one over the baby's crib supposedly provides visual stimulation and encourages the child's intellectual development. It was all the rage when I was growing up.

Eh, paint the blades of a ceiling fan different colors and put the crib under it.

Re: Opinion about Baby Nursery Imagery

I like your idea. No one says it can't be artistic. Look on pinterest and see if someone's pinned something along those lines. Maybe change things up? One wall science, another space, another music, etc. Have one wall for zoology--there's your animals. If you do it right (not too many colors clashing all over) and/or make it subtle, you can do a lot. Do the animals in soft hues, the others tone on tone.

Hey, I like Calder's works. Are you telling me I'm childish?
