It is always an exciting time and an adventure in itself as you prepare to welcome home your child.

Fun Modern Variations

When it comes to decorating a room, creative blend of styles always beats the simple and mundane. This is no different in case of nurseries with the most brilliant ones combining contrasting styles with elegance and a sense of curated finesse. One of our personal favorite is the modern industrial nursery with exposed brick wall sections and a dash of metallic glint. We are pretty sure that even your little one will appreciate the delightful contrast on display as the rest of the bursary along with the décor and color scheme remains distinctly modern. (Make sure you use non-toxic finishes and the right sealant for the brick wall to create an allergy-free environment)

Those looking for something more breezy, cheerful and timeless are bound to love the Scandinavian style nursery below. Apart from the flood of natural light, a series of casually placed string lights adds glitter to the small setting where space is utilized in a clever, yet uncluttered manner. Crisp and relaxing, this does look like the perfect nursery!

Prefer something more classic and timeless? This Victorian style crib in the nursery brings back an image of luxurious and regal interiors that are a rarity in current times. Fill the rest of the room with contemporary décor, metallic accents and plush textures and you create a stunning bridge between the past and the present without seeming to try too hard.

Pink and Plush Nurseries

As is the case every year, pink is the leader of the pack when it comes to ultra-cute girls’ nurseries and in 2017 you can take this a step further by adding flower power to pink panache! Bold patterns are currently a hot trend and adding them in pastel pink to the nursery is a great way to bring it alive without overloading it with diverse hues. Those who love a more modern look should try out pink and white stripes or chevron patterns for the accent wall while parents who are searching for a nursery that is ‘cute but not pink’ can try out pastel shades of purple and violet for that princess-themed space.

Cute, Unique Cribs

The carriage-style crib is increasingly becoming a popular option in girls’ nurseries where the theme is constantly moving away from modern and contemporary to ornate and flowery. It is time for some indulgence indeed! Ornate traditional cribs and those with an antique-vibe never go out of style and definitely look a lot more hip than the generic, modern crib. And if you are really in the mood to throw in a curve ball, then the round or even hexagonal crib should do the trick. It is all about what works in the specific nursery, theme and the space on offer.
