We partnered with the experts at Spotlight to bring you these trend tips for 2019.
Decorating the nursery is one of the most exciting ways to while away the wait for your new baby. Creating a space to soothe and nurture them is one of the best ways to prepare for their arrival. Create a modern and serene look with these five trend tips:
Trend 1 | Lavender Love
Pastel tones create a soft and dreamy feel so they’re perennial favourites in nursery design. Right now soothing lavender is topping the trend list. It’s a more gender neutral choice than traditional pink or blue, and it pairs harmoniously with greys, whites, and other neutrals.
Trend 2 | Animal Pals
Cute animals never go out of style in designs for babies and children. The current creatures of choice are bears, rabbits, and swans. Use these motifs on cot linen, then echo them in other elements throughout the room such as night lights, soft toys, and wall art.
Trend 3 | Customised Decor
There are few decorating options more special than the ones you personalise with the name you’ve chosen for your little one. For simple, graphic options try using a letter board, or painting MDF letters to match your theme. If you’re extra crafty, create embroidered or applique pieces that will become treasured heirlooms over time.
Trend 4 | Decorative Decals
Vinyl or fabric decals are ideal nursery adornments. They’re a great way to bring a themed motif onto the walls, and they’re not permanent so you can change them out as your little one grows and develops new interests and favourite things.
Trend 5 | Designer Details
Splashing out on a beautiful cot or rocking chair can be a smart design choice. These are usually the focal points of the room, and they’re also the most used, so it’s worth investing a good portion of your budget in them. You can make the remainder of that budget stretch a long way by shopping for cute linen and soft furnishings at Spotlight, and crafting unique pieces such as quilts, cushions, soft toys, and wall art.
No matter your choice of colour or theme, always be mindful of the mood you’re creating in your nursery. It should be a place where both you and your bub feel as calm and relaxed as possible, so keep it soft, with elements that evoke happiness and comfort. For more inspiration, head to Spotlight Stores.
