Nursery décor has certainly come a long way from the standard pink stripes and Winnie the Pooh options of years past. From big to modest budgets the sky’s the limit for the type of room your precious bundle can slumber in. Here are five current trends in modern nursery design for hip moms (or for those of us who aspire to be).
Many celebrities are incorporating a modern chic theme when designing their baby’s nursery. Tiffani Thiessen (or in my world, Kelly Kapowski) recently shared pictures of her daughter Harper’s nursery with People Magazine. How gorg is this nursery?
And if you’re wondering where she got her bedding from, you’ll have to hop on over to PetitNest– Thiessen’s new nursery décor collection she recently launched with her business partner Lonni Paul.
Many designers are blending a mix of retro style with the use of bold prints and color. I’m totally digging this 70’s flashback room with its pop of the colors green and orange by Jennifer Delonge. At first glance, you wouldn’t even guess it was a baby’s nursery (except, of course, for the cute little babe stretched out on the floor).
This nursery by Elizabeth Kimberly incorporates lime green with the use of natural-hued walls and flooring. Love it!
Want to create a serene and soothing atmosphere for your little one? Try using a neutral color palette like this nursery shared by Andrea King of Nursery Notations.
Like most other baby products, there are plenty of eco-friendly choices for the more environmentally-conscious mama. From mattresses to cribs to linens, practically every nursery item has an eco-friendly option. Here’s a sampling of some “greener” nursery items.
Organic Crib Sheeting from Pottery Barn Kids
Be sure to check out the VOC-free paint from The Land of Nod. There are over 60 different shades to choose from.
Gone are the days of choo-choo train borders, parents are using wall art as inspirational pieces in their baby’s room.
Here’s a creative way to showcase your family history with Family Tree Art from My Tree and Me: Modern Genealogy, it comes blank allowing you to fill-in the names by hand (don’t worry, they provide a practice copy as well).
A wall decal is a perfect option for those of us that are - ahem - artistically challenged, like this Birds on a Branch Decal from Amazon.
