The nursery looks fabulous. The crib is beautiful; the gorgeous bedding set matches the lampshade and the very handy toy bag. The hard, yet satisfying work of decorating your child’s room is finished.
Or is it?
The nursery or the playroom are not truly finished if the walls are bare. Bare walls are cold and uninviting in any room, and even more so when it comes to children’s rooms. But where can you find artwork that’s modern, non-kitsch, bright and colorful, appropriate for a child’s room AND affordable? And do you even dare to ask if it can be personalized too?
Normally I would have to say that no, you can’t find modern art for kids that can also be personalized. But recently I happened to come across some fabulous products by Hip Kid Art, a mom-owned company that offers modern, affordable personalized canvas art for children.
So if you’re a mom or a mom-to-be who’s trying to put the finishing touches on your child’s room, or if you’re looking for a truly unique baby shower gift for your pregnant friend, you’ve come to the right place.
Personalized Canvas Art For Children
Hip Kid Art features original, modern custom canvas designs that can be personalized with your child’s name, or any other message. The canvas is wrapped around a wooden frame and arrives ready to hang in any nursery or playroom. Each custom piece is available in two sizes: 12x12 and 24x18.
Some designs are “boyish.” I like the Go Car Go design, with its bright red and blue colors. Can you imagine how nicely it would go with the On The Go Crib Bedding Set?
Another favorite for boys is the Trike design, which features sky blue and fire engine red graphics with your child’s name in navy - classic colors for any tyke’s room.
Some of the designs are decidedly girly, without losing their clean lines or modern edge. The unique Watermelon design, a reddish-orange canvas with black white and marigold flowers, takes the usual flower motif and manages to turn it into something different, edgy and modern yet fun and girly. The Lavender Flowers design is similar, with colors that are more traditional and “girly.”
My absolute favorite for girls is the Chocopink Squares Canvas Wall Art. In fact, this design is so simple and gorgeous, I can totally see myself using it in other rooms! This design will look absolutely fantastic with the Soho Pink 9 Piece Crib Set by Sweet Jojo Designs.
If you prefer a more gender-neutral approach to decorating the nursery, you will love the Lollipop design, which features a simple white lollipop drawing and personalization in navy on a sky blue background.
Another great gender-neutral option is the Rings design, a lively design featuring circles in blues and browns, with a touch of pink.
Personalized Wall Plaques For Children
Each of the lovely Personalized Wall Plaques by Kimberly Petruska Designs can be personalized with a child's name, birth announcement, or inspiration message. They come in a variety of colors and designs, and at just $29.95 per plaque offer an exceptionally affordable way to personalize your child’s room.
The plaques measures 8" x 10" and may be purchased with a frame or a hanging ribbon. They are also available in a 5" x 7" size with a ribbon.
The very popular Pink Zebra design caught my eye immediately. I love the bold color combination, and the added sparkle around the name. This design coordinates well with the Zebra - Pink 9 Piece Crib Set by Sweet Jojo Designs.
I also ADORE the Paisley Peace design, with a hand-painted name, which features colorful paisleys on a chocolate background with a glittered Peace sign. I find it hip, modern and simply fun to look at. If you prefer more “grownup” designs, you will love this one.
For boys, I really like the Sports Wall Plaque with Hand-Painted Name. It’s a classic, timeless design and it also goes exceptionally well with the All Star 9 Piece Crib Set by Sweet Jojo Designs. Another great option for boys is the Rick's Motorcycle with Hand-Painted Name design, which was designed by bike builder Rick Petko from the popular "Chopper" TV Show and bears his signature. For just $37.95, it’s a unique, decidedly “grownup” look and a wonderful addition to your little boy’s room.

Look around your child’s room. Something still missing? Here’s a great suggestion: hand-painted wooden wall letters. Beautiful, durable and high-quality hanging wall letters give the nursery room an extra flare and are the perfect finishing touch to any child's room.
Wall Letters Are A Beautiful Decoration
Wall letters are a great way to personalize your child’s room. If your kids share a room, wall letters can be used to personalize each child’s space within that room.
Wall letters are typically large (we offer them in sizes 6", 8", 10", 12", and 14"), bright and pretty. They add a lot of character to the room as the eyes are typically drawn to them when people enter the room.
Wall Letters Are Educational, Too
Wall letters are not just a pretty decoration: they are also educational. Wall letters can help your child learn to recognize letters and spell his name. Wall letters can also help reinforce foreign language skills, such as Spanish or French, should you choose to spell out words in that language.
While the obvious choice for most parents is to use wall letters to spell their child’s first name on the nursery’s wall, there are other fun options. “RAINBOW” and “PRINCESS” are popular choices for girls’ rooms, while “STARS” and “COWBOY” are great choices for boys. Or try “PLAY” or “FUN” in your kids’ playroom. You can also use wall letters to spell out your own special message, such as “WE LOVE YOU” or “SWEET DREAMS.”

Tiny Totties are proud to offer a brand new selection of hand-painted wooden wall letters. Our wooden wall letters can be used for your baby's nursery, your child's room, or their playroom. They are original works of art and are carefully hand-painted.
Themed Wall Letters
Our wall letters by Kreations 4 Kids are especially unique in that they are hand-painted to match some of our bedding set designs. For example, our Little Ladybug Wall Letters, which are absolutely adorable by themselves, beautifully complement our Little Ladybug 9 Piece Crib Set.
For little boys, try our All Star Wall Letters. This sports-based theme will look great in any boys’ room, and especially in a room that features our All Star bedding theme.
