Since becoming pregnant I have been relishing in the fact that I get to FINALLY purchase all of this amazing baby décor. It can be overwhelming to keep up with the latest trends in nursery décor and because I inherited 99% of all the baby gear from family, I had to think of smart, cute ways to add my own twist onto the pieces I already have. Here are some nursery trends that are going bananas at the moment, which I have gained some of my inspiration.

The first is the ever so simple monochrome. Black and white has never looked so appealing, paired with a pastel this look can be suitable for either a boy or a girl! The options are endless. This is due to the nursery product scene being inundated with cute monochrome pieces such as this cute blanket from Roxy Marj and this amazing panda pillow case from Oliver’s Twisty Tales.

The next trend is my personal favourite, tribal. Tribal can range from little Indians, to teepees, to feathers, to arrows, to a little Pocahontas inspiration. This theme is again transferable to little boys and little girls and is what I would consider to be very Boho Chic. This look is simple to achieve, it is just a matter of not being afraid of colour and texture, and mixing it together. Some cute pieces for this look include an adorable Teepee, and arrow wall decals from Adair’s. Essentially this look is laid back and can be as loud or as quiet as you want and is perfect for our mums out there with a little more of an eclectic taste.




The final look is more for the little girls; a vintage glamour look is something, which is bang on trend. Image the days of Audrey Hepburn in a glamorous movie set dressing room, that is what this style is all about. The key item for this nursery style is of course a chandelier. You can grab a lovely statement chandelier from the Lark store. Another key piece is a beautiful up cycled vintage dresser. This is a great option because you can go to any lifeline store and find one, then all it needs is a lick of paint!




These three nursery trends were a great place for me to start when I was looking at my nursery.  They are all versatile and can be easily paired with any nursery furniture you may have inherited (like me), or bought yourself.
