As you prepare for the arrival of your baby, one of the key things you’ll have to do is set up a nursery, or at least a corner in your bedroom. The nursery is the central place where baby’s necessities are kept, and where the baby will sleep.
Rather than focusing on what’s trending now, we thought it would be best to speak to the timeless design trends. Trends fade away, but timeless classics are forever.
These are the six top nursery design themes and nursery decor trends we see year after year:
1. Design Trend: Baby Blues + Soft Pinks
If you know the sex of your baby before he or she arrives, it is very common to go traditional with a pink theme for a girl or a baby blue theme for a boy. We are also seeing gender neutral colors like grays, greens, yellows and oranges growing in popularity, but the blue and pink shades are still the most popular.
2. Decor Trend: Easy Cleaning
Whether it’s stain resistant or machine washable, moms and dads want decor that offers easy cleanup. Babies are messy, so stain resistant fabrics are a wonderful luxury. Machine washable fabrics are an absolute necessity.
3. Design Trend: Wildlife
Expecting parents have used wildlife as the theme for the nursery for many years because it’s cute, it’s gender neutral, and it gives parents lots of options. It could be zoo animals or sea creatures as the focus. Birds, bugs, farm animals and fish are all great for a baby’s nursery theme.
