Nursery décor has come a long way. For one thing, kitting out a newborn or toddler’s room is no longer limited to reaching for the novelty wallpaper and investing in a few tins of pastel paint in blue or pink. Whatever your thoughts on the rise of 'sharenting' and ‘mummy bloggers,’ one side effect of this shift in parenting trends is that, on Pinterest and beyond, social media is now awash with interiors inspiration for kids rooms that are aesthetically pleasing, functional and – crucially – are imaginative with a major sense of fun.
From colourful, creative storage solutions to kid-friendly printed wallpaper and paint ideas, we've scoured Pinterest to bring you some brilliant nursery ideas that you'll want to recreate for your own little ones...
