Once a popular nursery theme, circus decor has kind of fallen by the wayside in recent years in favor of softer colors and…well…chicer designs. That whole “big top” feel can feel just plain over-the-top. The tide may be turning, however, with a new wave of circus-themed nursery pieces. In more stylized prints with a slightly French aesthetic, the newest designs have just a bit of elegance while still keeping their kid-friendly feel. And for those who find clowns a bit chilling (like me), you’ll be happy to know that they rarely make appearances in the styles featured below.
