About 12 or so months ago I had a sample range made up with some little mountains on it..originally inspired by a quilt I made for my friends’ baby named Everest.
Well time flies by and I was digging around recently and found it and I thought YES LETS DO THIS!! (Watch out for updates on this )….. So then I jumped onto Pinterest and went to my Mountain Nursery board for all things mountain inspired and have discovered that this trend has really started to explode. Particularly the mountain mural.
So lets check a few out..
The detail in this intricate layered mountain scene is amazing as is the layering of the cool colours from dark to light. It really gives the wall a fantastic level of depth.
And here is another similar one.
The blanket, sheepskin rug and the macrame wall decor though all white create interest due to their textural elements. This is something we will look at again soon as it is important to use pattern and texture in monochromatic (one colour) spaces.
All the pattern in the wall creates enough interest allowing them to keep the rest of the space very simple.
Well, you might be thinking that these two are way out of your league..and I wouldn’t suggest trying them unless you are quite creative or handy with a brush. But all’s not lost..lets have a look at some simpler options.
Isn’t this a sweet picture too, and I do love the mustard yellow of the patterned rug and the sun giving the room some life. The parents wanted an adventurer / mountaineering theme but have managed to keep it subtle by using the wall as the main feature.
The more I look I see a real crossover from the teepee trend which is coming more from the Aztec American Indian inspired looks and the camping/ adventurer vibe which I think is relates back to parents wanting their children to experience the outdoors in this increasingly digital age.
And here is another more simple mountain style. If you wanted to make an even stronger statement you could do them in black. Really let your imagination go wild and get out that tape and paint away.
I remember when I had Campbell that trees were the thing to have in your nursery and they were a lot harder to do yourself so I really think most of you would be able to give these mountains a go.
If you are still not sure about painting or maybe you are renting, don’t worry you can use some stickers or create a mountain design from washi tape.
I’ve pinned so many great ideas for you and links to where you can get them as well as some DIY help, all on my Mountain Nursery pinterest board.
