If you are decorating a nursery and looking for creative ways to transform blank walls or give the nursery walls a little extra oomph- consider hanging wallpaper.

Ahead are the best nursery wallpaper trends in 2023 to dress up your nursery walls.
There's a reason that wallpaper is a designer's secret weapon to help transform a space. It is a brilliant way to bring color, pattern, and personality into any room, even the nursery.
When designing a nursery, you can use wallpaper to enhance the design, add visual interest, make a statement, add a unique focal point, uplift the mood, and create intrigue. With so many nursery wallpaper ideas to choose from for your nursery design project, we have curated the top nursery wallpaper trends of 2023.
In 2023, expect to see wallpaper featured prominently in nursery designs across the board. While in the past wallpaper may have been used to highlight an accent wall or perhaps even hide a not-so-straight wall, in 2023 we'll see wallpaper adorn all four nursery walls and take center stage in the nursery design.

NURSERY WALLPAPER TRENDS OF 2023
Woodland-inspired wallpaper stands the test of time in nursery designs. Adding woodland wallpaper to a nursery brings wonder and transforms it into a world of whimsy. In 2023, we expect to see bold and graphic woodland wallpaper prints and delicate watercolor-style designs.
Floral wallpaper is trending this year in nursery designs. From small and dainty floral prints to bold and colorful- floral wallpaper can add freshness, color, playfulness, and a whimsical note to a nursery design.
Incorporating botanicals in your nursery design is a great way to create a space for the baby that's soothing, restful, and connected to the outdoors. In 2023, we'll see a lot of botanical designs taking over nurseries everywhere.
Vintage wallpaper designs will continue to trend in 2023 interiors and expect these charming vintage designs to make a splash in baby rooms, bringing a sense of familiarity and peace to the space.
5. SMALL SCALE
Along those same lines- in 2023, we'll see small-scale designs with dainty and subtle patterns introduced into nurseries. These wallpaper designs are the perfect way to dabble in wallpaper if you are a bit intimated. Use the just wallpaper on the walls or pair with paint for a stunning effect.
Expect warmer earth tones in 2023 nursery wallpaper designs to beckon in the return of brown furniture. Nursery wallpaper designs with warm tones like caramels, browns, mushrooms, and terracotta will dominate the design landscape.
We also expect to see moody wallpaper designs incorporated into nurseries to add drama and elevate the aesthetic. Dark and moody wallpaper alongside painted trim or walls, light furniture, and woven materials can balance out the moody and the ethereal vibe.
It doesn't look like the Cottagecore wallpaper designs are going anywhere. Incorporating a Cottagecore wallpaper with a nod to the traditional English countryside style can lend a romantic and nostalgic vibe to the baby's room.
Stripes are another wallpaper trend that has been in and out of nursery designs, but in 2023 we expect a big comeback. Use stripes in the nursery to make the space appear bigger and the ceiling taller than it is while adding depth and dimension to the walls.
Maximalist interiors with layers of texture, color, prints, and decor are all the rage, and we'll continue to see nursery designs influenced by that design philosophy as well. However, we expect nursery wallpaper designs to reflect this trend with a bit of a twist- muted maximalism. This year wallpaper designs will feature prominent patterns but more muted and tonal color hues.
