Scandi design is still going strong, especially in the nurseries. Its soft and warm colors and clean lines look perfect in a nursery because they exude relaxation and comfort. So, forget about industrial chic and travel to the north of Europe with this nursery design style.
Just like Scandinavian design, Boho has been quite popular for a while now. However, its bold colors, fringes, tassels, intricate wall hangings and patterned fabrics might be a bit too much for the baby’s little brain, so you might want to opt for a toned-down version of Boho style. Choose softer colors and pair bold patterns with minimalist furniture for a calmer vibe.The color purple and fun designs
This year, you can expect to see a lot of purple thanks to Pantone and its Color of the Year “Ultra Violet”. This soft lavender-like shade will certainly rule over nursery colors along with classic pinks, blues, and beiges. Also, the monochrome design is slowly getting replaced by intricate designs and painted accent walls. So, bring a variety of fun and interesting designs into your kid’s nursery. For instance, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can go bold with gingham, triangles, colored blocks and practically any other design you can think of. Just grab some rollers and brushes and get painting. You can even rent practical kwikstage scaffolding that will make your paint job a piece of cake.
