Put down the swatches and lookbooks, the inspirational baby room decor site, Project Nursery, shares the top 10 design trends of 2015 to get you started on your nursery transformation.
After picking out a baby’s name, designing your bundle of joy’s room is your next most important decision. But with all the possibilities out there—modern, nautical, unisex, animals—decorating a pint-sized person’s room can feel hugely overwhelming.
Project Nursery to the rescue! The inspirational baby room decor site has pulled together a list of the top trends for nurseries for 2015 with the help of their readers—real moms like you and me! From metallic hues to Western-inspired accents to modern floral prints, this year’s trends mean baby’s room may just be the most stylish room in the house.
Co-founders Melisa Fluhr and Pam Ginocchio tell Parenting.com that the key to beginning the design process is to focus on one aspect of the space, so you don’t get buried in ideas and projects.
“We recommend focusing on a single trend and letting it take the lead rather than several, which will overpower the space and end up looking cluttered. Pinterest is a terrific way to play around with a design to see how a particular trend will play out in the nursery along side your furnishings and decor. Anything that can help you visualize the nursery in advance is a great way to take some risks before really going for it!” they say.
Fluhr and Ginocchio also share a top tip for designing your nursery on a budget but still using the trend you love: “There is usually a way to achieve a trend without too much expense. For example, with the ‘fake it wallpaper’ trend, we’ve seen some great DIY options using inexpensive contact paper and a stencil to create your very own custom decals. Or try making your own play teepee for a popular western vibe, or print out a quote on your home printer and frame it for instant inspirational art prints.”
