This Year’s Trends in Nursery Decor

If you (or someone you know) will be welcoming a baby in the coming months, now’s a good time to plan an adorable and efficient nursery for the new arrival. Better Homes and Gardens checked in with decorators to learn what’s new and trendy in baby room décor this year:

It’s Back to Pastels… – The recent trend toward bold, bright, primary colors is giving way to preference for pastels—at least according to paint manufacturers, who say pink, baby blue and light yellow are their best-selling nursery colors. You could also consider a creamy neutral shade and warm it up with pastel accessories.

…but Some Like It Hotter – On the other hand, some decorators say a nursery decked out in bold colors remain the choice of parents who don’t want to have to redecorate the room as the child gets older.

Unique Mobiles Are In – The trend is to larger, more vivid mobiles, such as papier mâché balloons, hanging stuffed animals, or abstract flying sculptures.

Gliders Over Rockers – A big, comfy armchair that can hold you plus two makes sense to many moms who expect to have a second child—especially if they will be sharing a room.

Paint Up Above – The trend toward clouds or other designs on the ceiling came about to give baby something more to look at and contemplate than a plain, white-painted ceiling.

Furniture that Transitions – Cribs that convert to toddler beds and changing tables that will become dressers are becoming more popular than ever.

Cut-Outs and Decals – The trend is to jazz up pastel walls with decals or wooden cut-outs. You can use a theme, like a nursery rhyme or storybook characters, or choose abstract designs like geometric shapes the baby will not outgrow as quickly. Gaining in popularity in decals today are safari animals and Disney characters.
