Murals vs. Borders. Which do you prefer on the nursery walls?

Do you prefer to paint your own mural or have an artist come in to do it for you? Or, do you prefer to get a border that matches or at least coordinates with your nursery theme?

I've seen some gorgeous murals, but I'm big on flexibility. If I had to do one or the other, I'd do a border over a mural so that I could move the furniture wherever I wanted in the future. It'd irk me to have a dilemna later when I wanted to move a piece of furniture to a specific spot but it would block one of the kid's favorite parts of the mural.

With a border, I would also save some pieces to be able to use in a scrap book or as a mat for a framed picture.

I am honestly not really a fan of either. I love the look of murals but it does limit where you can move the furniture.

And I hate boarders because they are wall paper. My old house was all wall paper and removing it was a pain so I don't want to go through that!

I love the murals!

In my children's rooms, because of where the doors, closets, and windows are I'm already limited as to which walls the dressers and beds can go on. So, it wouldn't be a problem for me to have murals to work around the current furniture set up.

Amee: You can also paint borders in rooms! We used a floral stencil to paint a border in my DD's nursery to coordinate with her nursery bedding.

We are doing both actually. We have a small border we bought from the nursery collection and we are getting a custom mural to match. Our theme is moo cows.
