New year, new trends! My absolute favorite part of my job is trend spotting and trendsetting, and just when I think I've found my new favorite style of nursery design, something changes, and I obsess over a whole new style of decor. It's a vicious cycle.
So, although I'm still completely obsessed with the popular colors of 2016 like coral, mint, and any combination of the sweet pastels in baby bedding, for 2017 it's more about the style of the design. And baby, it's good! Here are my top 5 trends for 2017 in nursery design... happy decorating friends!
The Dark & Moody Nursery
We drool every time we spot one of these gorgeous floral wallpapered nurseries, there's something dark and mysterious yet EXTREMELY feminine about their style and mood. I love how it still has a sweet side to it, but the vintage feel to the wallpaper could so easily transition into any room in the house. And the dark navy, burgundy, and ivory combination is so original and spot on in these two drool worth nurseries.
But let's be real, sometimes wallpaper just seems SO PERMANENT. But no worries! You can easily create the same look in your room by bringing in textiles in the same dark color palettes... in your baby bedding, curtains, and even furniture! A navy crib for a baby girl? Yes, please!
The Metallic Nursery
Move over gold and silver, you've got some competition! Their sister shades of copper and rose gold are popping up everywhere, and we love their tonal and gender neutral appeal for the baby's room. (Or any room in the house!) For more ideas, make sure to check out our Metallic Pinterest Board for inspiration!
We are completely crushing on this vintage twist on an old school farmhouse style! Think lots of wood, lace, and linen. It's perfect for any gender and even better for gender neutral nursery design! In fact, we've got several linen and lace crib sets that would work perfectly for your DREAM farmhouse style nursery! Oh, and our LoveLetters Bedding collection is just begging for a little farmhouse style too!
Remember chevron in the nursery? Yea, well, we predict buffalo check to be the next big thing in print styles! So pack up that zig zag print, move over modern, this classic style print is as preppy as it is modern and goes with all kinds of decor for the nursery.
We are still crushing on the deer trend for boys, and love the idea of combining the buffalo check and deer in black, white, and navy for the perfect baby boy room.
Neon? Oh yea, baby. We've never been scared of a little color around here, but our hearts about STOPPED when we shot this perfect crib set paired with that ahhhhh-mazing black and white ruffle crib skirt. I mean really. Can I put this in my own room? Someone... have a baby ASAP... we need to do a new nursery design that's as bright as it is bold. Clean. Crisp.... and right on trend for 2017!
