DIY Nursery: Creating a Black and White Scandi Style Decal Wall

2 Materials
1 Hour

When I was dreaming up my sweet little boy's room, I knew that I wanted a Scandinavian feel (think minimalist black + white) but with some kelly green and rustic charm thrown in. I wanted it to have a monochrome meets camp-y vibe without going over the top. I'm always pinning kids room ideas, and when I looked them over, I realized SO many had a theme: decals. Here is the scoop on how I created a stellar accent wall using black and white scandinavian style decals.
When I saw these swiss cross decals and these pine tree decals from WallsNeedLove, I knew they were going to be perfect for a feature wall. I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I decided to do a little mix 'n match situation. Actually putting the decals up was a no-brainer. They come on sheets, and it's recommended that you cut out each shape and tape them to the wall for perfect placement before taking off the backing.
