Choosing how to decorate a baby room can feel daunting at first, so start with the basics and build up from there. To make things easier, we’ve compiled a list of the hottest interior trends – all of which can be easily incorporated into your baby’s room, but also work incredibly well as stand-alone features in any nursery.
Long associated with village fairs, after experiencing a renaissance a few years ago, bunting is now well established as a cute, simple way to liven up a baby room. Now the shift has turned towards tepees, which are available in a plethora of funky patterns and colours. Not only do they jazz up any baby’s room, they also provide hours of entertainment for your little one as they older. In a similar way, more traditional, handcrafted furniture is making a come back, giving the room a timeless feel.
If you’re unsure what colour you want to paint your walls or the curtain pattern you will opt for, make life easier for yourself by choosing furniture with a neutral palette. Not only will a neutral palette leave you with a multitude of options for the other design elements in your room, incorporating soft tones such as cream and light grey is an easy way to make a nursery classic and chic. Moreover, as trends have shifted towards a more gender-neutral approach, these soft tones are very in vogue.
Hand-woven bags came back in a big way in 2017 and it’s easy to incorporate this trend into a baby room. Whether you utilise them for toy storage, as a laundry hamper or a nappy basket, hand-woven baskets hide a multitude of messy sins as well as being an incredibly versatile addition to any nursery. Not only are hand-woven-baskets stylish and on-trend, they’re neutral, so will easily slot in with whatever colour scheme you end up opting for.
Splashes of colour
If you’ve decided to keep a neutral palette, what will help tie the room together is pops of colour. Think about investing in a bright rug – a rug is a must, whether your flooring is carpeted or hardwood. As well as providing much needed comfort, a rug will open up the room and adds personality to the space. Lively scatter cushions, which come in plenty of fun shapes and stimulating patterns will add a spark to the room, as will fun throws, that will keep you cosy during the inevitable long nights.
