Keeping all walls white, except one by making it different than the rest, is a unique feature for the baby nursery room. You may want to paint one wall the darkest of all to let it stand out and being the focal point of the room; depending on how you like it. Also, you can have wallpaper on one wall or all four, as you prefer.

Create a rustic wood element in your baby’s room by adding a wood wall that looks amazing and trendy. Otherwise, you can keep it simple and minimalist by adding rustic wood art.
