Marvelous Metallics

Just as metals such as copper, brass and rose gold are continuing to grow in popularity when it comes to decor for adults, these shiny materials are showing up in an increasing number of kids’ rooms. Below we see a duo of Sparkle Heart Pillows from Pottery Barn Kids. You can’t go wrong when you mix silver and gold tones!

The options today are so chic, you’ll be tempted to order an extra fixture for the living room!

Geo Flair

Geo forms are alive and well in children’s bedroom designs, and this Polygon Bookcase from The Land of Nod (designed by Royce Nelson) features cutout shapes with colorful backing:

Storage baskets are the perfect canvas for geo forms, and Emily Current & Meritt Elliott’s Black & White Storage bin from Pottery Barn Kids is a high-contrast celebration of black and white triangles. Plus, it’s made from pure cotton:

The ’80s are back! When a grid background meets geometric forms, you have Rainbow Charm bedding from The Land of Nod, designed by Ampersand Design Studio. Whether you order this bedding for an older child, a toddler or a baby (yes, they even offer crib bedding), you’re sure to revel in nostalgia while your child discovers the wonder of stylish geometry:

Scandinavian Style

Scandinavian style is perfect for kids’ rooms, as the clean-lined look and whimsical patterns result in a tidy but playful atmosphere. Nobody does Scandinavian design for kids quite like ferm LIVING:

Below we see a room featuring Landscape Bedding, among other selections. The low-key nature of many Scandinavian patterns makes them perfect for mixing and matching!

Here’s a closer look at Scandinavian bedding style, this time featuring ferm LIVING’s Kite Bedding. Parents will love the fact that the bedding is 100% organic cotton, and kids will love the fact that it comes with a matching tote bag! The pattern is also available in mint.

For a geometric shelving option, check out The Dorm, which can hold collectibles and other small items that are worthy of display. The compartments are fabulous, but our favorite feature is the painted back:

Abstract Design

Today’s last featured trend is abstract style, which often involves a hand-drawn look. No wonder these Freehand Swaddle Blankets from The Land of Nod are so trendy! Plus, hand-drawn style is perfect for kids. Artist Ashley Goldberg created these designs:

Once again, a new Oh Joy! for Target line has premiered, this time with a focus on home decor and nursery items. We’ve been longtime fans of blogger Joy Cho’s product design, and her free-form patterns and candy colors are so eye-catching, it’s no wonder her collections sell out quickly. [via Glamour

Next up: the Ticker Tape Duvet Cover from The Land of Nod. Designed by Jenny Pennywood, the bedding showcases abstract shapes on a solid base. Plus, look how well it blends with other abstract designs introduced by pillows?!

Sometimes abstract style is subtle. Notice how the dots below are more flowing than precise. Pastels reign on the Multi Dot Euro Sham from Pottery Barn Kids:
