Creating a Parisian Hot Air Balloon Baby Nursery

Atelier Choux Cashmere Blanket - Hot Air Balloons

Creating a Parisian Hot Air Balloon themed nursery for your baby or children will surround them with a sense of adventure, dreaming, wonder and warm ambiance.

With the first hot air balloons launching in France in 1782, no wonder they’re reminders of a less complicated, vintage and traditional aesthetic, solidly grounded in French style.

Hot air balloon decor for your child’s nursery can turn an ordinary space into something magnificent; quite simply. The new hand drawn wallpaper by Lily and The Wall will create a dreamy exotique ambiance and stimulate children’s imaginations as they grow. The Bonsoir Paris style features the charming old buildings and rooftops of Paris, the Eiffel Tower and the most gorgeous larger than life hot air balloons. Air Balloons (below) is more feminine and subtle with its soft violets and pinks; the perfect backdrop for adding little French vintage touches such as rattan bassinets or wall baskets.
