I love watching nursery trends, because a baby’s room is my favorite space to put together. Going into 2020, we’re seeing statement walls make a huge appearance.

You can create a statement wall in a variety of ways:

  1. Peel ‘n Stick Wallpaper
  2. Wall Decal Stickers
  3. Gallery Walls
  4. Large Decor Accents
  5. Bold Painted Statement Wall
  6. Shiplap
  7. Board and Batten

Let’s explore some of the biggest statement wall trends in nurseries this year!

1. Herringbone Wallpaper

Herringbone wallpaper is a definite trend for modern nurseries. This nursery by Melissa Jill is absolutely perfect.

2. Large, Floral Wallpaper

My personal favorite trend is the floral nursery. We’re seeing a lot of big, bold floral prints on wallpaper and I’m loving it!

3. Vintage Vibes

Vintage-inspired nurseries are super trendy right now and I have a feeling it’s going to stay that way for awhile. Vintage, floral wallpaper is perfect for a nursery statement wall.

4. Woodland Gallery Wall

The Woodland theme is still going strong! It’s still one of the most searched nursery themes going into 2020. Creating a large gallery wall like this on your statement wall creates a focal point in the room.

6. Nursery Star Decals

Create a dreamy night sky on the wall with these top-rated, removable star decal stickers.

7. Board & Batten Black Statement Wall


The board and batten wall is the modern version of the shiplap wall. I’m in love with it and it looks elegant painted a matte black. The name sign is absolutely perfect above the crib on this wall too.

8. Rustic Shiplap Walls


The rustic nursery theme is still very much on trend. I love this “shiplapped” or rustic plank wall as the focal point of the room.
