It’s so nice to decorate your nursery… when I was pregnant of my eldest son I was so excited. I chose lovely wallpaper with matching fabrics. If you are a little creative, you can do very much yourself; I made the coating of the cradle, sewed curtains, made a cover for the hot water bottle and music box. The result was amazing, I was so proud! I even made a nightlight with the jigsaw. Although a nursery is ideal to give it a personal touch we all get inspired by the latest interior trends. What is hip, hot and happening now in nursery land? Check out these four key trends:
Trend 1: Pretty pastel
Pastels can’t be missed in the nursery. Lovely shades of pink, soft blue and soft green and neutral grays. Smart manufacturers already translated these colors in accessories such as Baby’s Only, Snoozebaby, koeka, Cotton Baby, Baby Anne-Cy, BamBam but also Southern European brands like Uzturre, Pasito a Pasito where pastels almost are an art. Pastels can be wonderful in a nursery and lighten up the room, but you can miss some excitement and energy. Beautiful combinations are those made with spicy accent colors such as raspberry, fuchsia or bright green.
Trend 2: Sensible black and white
A nursery in black and white cold or boring? Not at all! Never before there were so many children’s accessories in black and white. Think of pillows, nice lyrics that you can paint or stick on walls, posters, lights and so on. Combine these accessories with pastel shades like pink, green or blue and let the black and white accessories shine. Black and white also combine very well with spicy colors like turquoise or fuchsia. This nursery is both for boys and girls!
Trend 3: Beloved gold
In the interior industry already quite hot, but we see it in the nursery more and more. Please don’t make it too bling bling, hammered or a little weathered is just fine. The color gold or copper gives you and your child a sunny and wealthy feeling. Ideal to use in areas with little sunlight, a light or accessory brings in the sunlight directly. Gold combines beautifully with green and brown tones, it brings peace and warmth or combine it with chic black, white and natural tones. If combined with fresh colors such as raspberry pink, petrol blue and buttercup yellow it will give the room a youthful appearance!
Trend 4: Decorative do-it-yourself
If you’re becoming a mom or dad you probably want to make something for the nursery: that can be sewing, crafting or carpenting! An odd shaped branch from nature serves well for making a mobile or as a hanging rack for your finest baby clothes. A timbered tree is nice as decoration on the wall, and a separate standing tree can be used as a coat rack. You can also make beautiful things with paper such as a festive birth garland, a garland with flags, circles or other shapes. And what do you think about a bunch of origami balls in the corner of a room?
