Between the diaper changes, story times and midnight feedings, it won’t be long before you’re spending more time in the nursery than your own bedroom. And that’s all the more reason to create a space that brings a smile (or toothless grin) to everyone’s faces. Click through our slideshow for inspirational and affordable ideas for adding interest to the blank wall in baby’s room.

Palette Perfection
