Natural wood tones of varying shade paired with a neutral palette lend a calm, serene feel, perfect for a nursery. Baby will love the black and white contrast, and keeping the palette simple will make it easier to pull the room together. A couple of small pops of muted color, like that tray below and that kilim pillow, bring the space to life. Don’t be afraid to mix wood finishes and tones for a more interesting mix!

I’m loving the explosion of flowers in springtime, and always find it so inspiring, don’t you? My super talented friend Ashley Woodson Bailey just opened a shop to sell prints of her gorgeously moody flower photography, and it’s a great springboard for a room design. I’m especially loving this Neon Bash print, which has a hint of that radiant orchid everyone is talking about this year, and is perfect paired with neutral wood finishes and pops of yellow.

Copper is on its way to becoming the new darling of home decor. Gold is still fantastic, but copper is a great alternative or complement to just shake things up a bit. It’s still a little hard to find, but you can get crafty with a can of copper spray paint or some copper tubing (check out this end table DIY and this laptop stand DIY!) until you can find it in more places. I’m loving the pairing of copper and sweet shades of peach; it would make for a really lovely and modern 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.

Trend: Flokati and fluffy textures in the nursery and interiors.
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.
Hope you are inspired! ~Joni, Lay Baby Lay

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.(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
