get the look: a neutral nursery

Trend: Neutral spaces with bright white walls, black accents, and natural finishes

Bright white walls with natural wood finishes and black accents seem to be dominating interior inspiration these days.  It’s a fresh and clean look, but it can still be fun to add in some color here and there.  I came across this beautiful rug, and though it would be the perfect starting point for a lovely girls’ nursery with a restrained, yet interesting palette.  neutral girl nurserySources, from top left: (1) Dahlia Chandelier; (2) Sky Block; (3) Reclaimed Wood Letter; (4) Hexagon Monte Mirror; (5) Diamond Monte Mirror; (6) Wildflowers Print; (7) Love Print; (8) Glacier National Park Print; (9) Black and White Photo; (10) Lovely Pillow; (11) White Sparrow Crib; (12) Gold Lamps; (13) Provincial Dresser; (14 & 15)  Black and White Vintage Photos; (16) Finn Rocker; (17) Aqua Tassel Curtains; (18) Talitha Rug; (19) Cloud Sheet; (20) 1976 Print; (21) Color Block Basket

Get the Look: a Touch of Fluff

Trend: Flokati and fluffy textures in the nursery and interiors.

It seems that fluffy textures are popping up everywhere recently.  It can add a great bit of texture and warmth to a room, as well as a bit of playfulness.

A shaggy, fluffy rug is also a great option if you have a carpeted room, but want to break up the expanse of carpet (see Henry’s room).  The contrast in textures will make it work, and help define the space a little better.  Fluffy white rugs are also great for taking photos of baby, and he or she will love crawling around on it!  The fluffy pillows and throw versions are also perfect for parties, playrooms, and even holiday decor.  I love what Kristin did with one under her tree!  You can’t beat unbreakable Christmas decor with little ones under foot!  Here are some great options available – I am loving the colored versions as well.

get the look: little rocket girl

Trend: Constellation charts and astronomy in home decor

Have you seen Gravity yet?  We went this past weekend, and it was a pretty fantastic movie.  I wasn’t expecting to be so emotionally drawn into the story line; I was ready for just a pretty film.  It’s been on my mind ever since, and I can’t help but be inspired by it, especially since it’s mostly about a girl astronaut.  Today’s board has sort of a retro-futuristic feel, with an unexpected color palette incorporating plums and pinks, perfect for a stargazing little one with big dreams.baby room ideas(1) Space Bound; (2) Teardrop Lamp; (3) Space Implode; (4) Black & Blue Moon Print; (5) 1892 Solar System Atlas; (6) Brass Urchin; (7) Planets of the Solar System; (8) Moon Print; (9) Isosceles Lamp; (10) Birch Sparrow Crib; (11) Pink Accessory Tray; (12) Pink Flutter Sheet; (13) Luminous Dots Pillow; (14) Minty Dresser; (15) Finn Rocker; (16) Rocketship Rug; (17) Space

get the look: moody floral

Trend: dark backgrounds with bright florals

I was really excited to get to be a part of the BHG style event two weeks ago, and it was a great opportunity to extend the weekend to spend some extra time in NYC.  Chip flew up to meet me, and we walked until we ached, and enjoyed lots of great food and gathered lots of inspiration (and sleep!).  We also went to the Vampire Weekend concert in Brooklyn, and it was awesome.  I loved the backdrop they used – a giant, oversized floral with a huge gold mirror and white columns.  (source) It was really striking, and reminded me a bit of Rifle Paper Co. patterns.  I love this look, and it would be really fun in a nursery.  While some oversized floral wallpaper would be gorgeous, sometimes that can be a bit out of budget, so here is a room where the artwork brings in the same feel (adore those pillows!!).  garden prep baby room ideasSources, from top left: (1) Eclipse Chandelier; (2) Brass Wall Hanging; (3) Watercolor Flowers; (4) Ivy Hooks; (5) Crewelwork Flowers; (6) Citrus Floral; (7) Bouquet; (8) Oh La La; (9) Citrus; (10) Rose Gold Lamps; (11) Century Crib; (12) Lovely Pillows; (13) Crewelwork Blue Flowers; (14) Paris Gray Dresser; (15) Poppies; (16) James Harrison Chair; (17) Elsa Stool; (18) Dorothy Rug; (18) Pintuck Pouf

get the look: animal print

Trend: Animal print, in fashion and interiors

Touches of animal print seem to be everywhere, and it’s a fun trend to incorporate into a nursery for a sophisticated touch.  Here is a take on a nursery with a few exotic details for a polished yet feminine look.  I really love the prints that  are a little more abstract, like the black and white spots, rather than the literal leopard, although that can be quite fun, too!  Green velvet is a natural pairing with animal print, and would be great for recovering an old chair, or on a pouf or ottoman for an extra luxe detail.baby room ideasSources, from top left: (1) Flower Drum Shade; (2) Paris; (3) Bunny Watercolor; (4) J is for Jaguar; (5) Little Darlings Bobcat; (6) Paris is Always a Good Idea; (7) New York Map; (8) Little Darlings White Tiger; (9) Vintage containers; (10) Century Crib; (11) Brass Tiger; (12) Black and White Pillows; (13) Hot Pink Dresser; (14) Charcoal Spots Sheet; (15) Green Velvet Chair; (16) Gold Branch Lamps; (17) Yellow and White Rug; (18) Let the Wild Rumpus Start; (19) Basket; (20) Charcoal Dots Fabric; (21) Freestyle Fabric

get the look: yellow ochre + peachy pink

Trend: Yellow Ochre + Pink + Black, White, and Gray

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of yellow ochre, paired with pink, along with black, white and gray for a crisp and sophisticated palette.  I really like how it tones down the pink a bit.  See examples here:(Sources, from top left: Dining Room; Tufted Pink Sofa; Color Tipped Scarves; Book CoverPretty Suit; Yellow Moulding; Wooden Dresser; Threaded Chairs)

So, here is a little nursery inspiration based on this palette (I like the little touch of aqua added in):baby room ideasSources, from top left: (1) Silvia Pendant Light; (2) Black & White Triangles; (3) Morning Sun; (4) Howl; (5) Triangles; (6) Atlas Sound Poster; (7) Tiger says Meow; (8) Home Is; (9) Dot Pillows; (10) Pink Caravan Crib; (11) Aqua Floor Lamp; (12) White Dresser; (13) Colette the Cat; (14) Be Brave; (15) Yellow Crib Sheet; (16) Molded Rocker; (17) Marigold Rug; (19) Plus Crib Blanket; (20) Basket Storage
