Nursery decor can be adorable and sweet, but often leaves parents flummoxed as to what to do with an entire wall of Winnie the Pooh prints and other baby-themed art after baby is grown and on to bigger and more mature tastes. The solution? Decorate your babe's abode with art that can stand the test of time.

One of our favorite stops for online art is 20×200. Described as “Art for Everyone,” 20×200 is the perfect place to stock up on unique, striking artwork that will fit your style and your budget both. Each week they introduce a new piece on paper and a new photograph. And founder and CEO Jen Bekman has come with a formula to help get art into more people's homes: “(limited editions x low prices) + the internet = art for everyone.” Sounds good to us.

There are hundreds of prints to browse, and the prices start at $20. (Yes, that's right—twenty dollars.) You can search by color, price, artist or category, and they've also got a handy page of kid-friendly art as well.

We took a little time (ok, a lot of time) gathering up our favorites picks for decorating a nursery to share with you below.
