2017 Nursery Trends- Guest Post by Meghan Basinger

When your shopping addiction is clothes or shoes you can easily hide the boxes in the guest room closet before your husband asks why your front step looks like a UPS distribution facility. When it’s nursery and kid’s room décor…it’s a heck of a lot harder to shield his eyes from jaw-dropping wallpaper that just magically materializes overnight.

Hi, my name is Meghan. And I have an obsession with nursery and kids’ room décor. And so, I’m here to chat 2017 nursery trends.

FLORALS

Give me all the florals. Make them bold and put them on my walls. We’re not talking tiny intricate fleurs that remind you of grandma’s wallpaper from 1950. I’m loving a dark, moodier take on one wall in the nursery or lighten things up, but still make a statement with 3-D flowers.

WESTERN

You don’t have to live in Arizona to dress a room with all things cacti. Throw in a wall weaving or feather dreamer and you have yourself a little southwestern oasis. As a mom of two girly-girls (granted, I suppose I’ve made them that way) we haven’t dabbled in this trend…but it’s my secret crush.

THE NON-NURSERY

The first time I saw this image (left) below, I fell head-over-heels. Blown-up black and whites and copper accents? Can I sleep here? I love the idea of a space that doesn’t feel too baby. You’re basically setting your little one up to have some massive style and making the big kid room transition a million times easier.

SAY IT WITH WORDS

I love words. Twenty-years from now when I’m done chasing kids in every direction imaginable, I’d love to weave words together to make a book worth reading. Until then, I’ll just find a place for words on my walls. 

FURRY FRIENDS

Ok, obviously cute little animals have been making their way into nurseries for decades. But I’m particularly smitten with this peek-a-boo style. Their life-like-look makes you feel like your gifting your sweat pea the most well-behaved pet in the world.
