Nursery Wall Art

If you’re choosing art for your nursery’s focal piece, the canvas width should be slightly smaller than the width of your crib, changing table, or dresser. However, accent art can be as small as half the width of the furniture the art hangs above. For example a standard 54″ W crib needs a 50″ W painting as a focal point, but a 32″ W dresser could look good with a 16″ W accent painting.

These diagrams show which canvas sizes at Amborela look best above common nursery furniture. If you need help choosing a canvas size for a different setting, let me know. I’m happy to help!

I am the artist creating the nature inspired paintings and surface patterns at Amborela. When I'm not in my studio, I am working in my garden with the flowers that inspire my artwork. I ooh and aah at beautiful colors and interesting textures.
