    6 Can’t-Miss Mountain Murals for the Nursery

    Mountain murals are cropping up in nurseries and kids’ rooms everywhere, and the view couldn’t be sweeter! These bold beauties represent a seismic shift in the popular woodland trend, which is gradually trading rich, rustic style for something a little more contemporary. (Think clean, contemporary décor with subtle nods to rustic tradition.)

    The new woodland look is bright and whimsical, and these mountain-inspired masterpieces certainly fit the bill. Dramatic color pairings and a hand-drawn, impressionistic approach provide a playful, kid-friendly feel that’s both fresh and fun.

    Not much of an artist? You don’t need to be! These simple DIYs couldn’t be easier to create. A pencil, a ruler, a roll of painter’s tape and a little patience, and you’re in business. Whether you choose to keep things simple with a single demarcation between earth and sky or create an impressive range of mountainous glory, the basic process is the same. Just section off and paint.

    Need a little inspiration? Here’s a round-up of our favorite mountain murals, complete with links to step-by-step tutorials. Sit back and enjoy the scenery.
