5 Hottest Baby Nursery Decor Trends For 2021

When you have a baby on the way, one of the most important things you need to do is to get the nursery ready for their arrival. The nursery is a hugely relevant part of the whole process of getting ready for a baby. Not only does it mean you can provide your child with an amazing place to grow up, but it also helps you as parents to get ready for the baby too.

The main question here is: what kinds of styles and trends are there which you might want to use when you are designing a nursery? As it happens, there are a few hot trends right now which you might want to consider. Let’s take a look at some of them and see whether any of them seem right for you and your baby.

For a particularly modern look, one trend you might want to follow along with is to use some simple panelling. There are many ways that you can align panels in order to create a range of different effects. Whichever way you specifically go for, you will find that this is always going to produce a nursery that you and your baby will love.

You could go for simple vertical panels spaced distantly apart, or more of the crazy paving style panelling, all going off in different directions. Alternatively, you could go for horizontal panels too. You should also consider whether you want to play around with colours - all one colour, a couple of alternating colours, or many different ones? It’s up to you, but however you do it, panelling really does work a treat.

As you can see from these photos, panels can be used in a wide variety of interesting ways, and to produce whatever overall decor and theme you might be going for. It’s hardly surprising it is such a big trend right now.

Down In The Jungle

It has long been a favourite way of decorating nurseries to include something of the natural world in there. If you are keen for your baby to feel surrounded by nature, then this is one way to do so. The jungle theme is very popular right now, and with good reason, as it really is one of the most versatile and beautiful themes that you can choose from.

You can do this in a very understated manner, by just having some wallpaper with a few animals dotted around on it such as giraffes and lions. Or you can go full-tropical, and fill the room with pictures of jungle plants and exotic birds, for a much more colourful look. However you do it, the jungle look is one that your kid will love, and it will set it apart from many other nurseries of its kind too.

Check out these examples of the jungle look if you are curious about trying this for yourself in your baby’s nursery.

Boho Vibes

It’s not just the world of adult fashion where boho chic is big news - it’s also one of the most popular themes in decorating baby nurseries too. If you are curious about how you can achieve the boho vibes look in your baby’s new nursery, you can check out the following photos for some inspiration.

A lot of this comes down to picking a soft palette and not overdoing it on the details. What you are going for is an easygoing, gentle vibe, and that is all about keeping it fairly simple and straightforward. But that being said, don’t be afraid to jazz it up a little if you want to. There’s nothing wrong with being a little creative, and actually it might help you out in a big way if you allow yourself to do this.

Above all, the boho look is a great all-rounder, and it’s even one that you can choose for either sex, so if you want to get started early on the painting and decorating, this is a good one to go for.

That’s My Name

One approach that is becoming more popular right now is to make the decor as personalised as possible. If you already know what name you are going to give your child, then that obviously gives you the easiest possible way to personalise the room: you just need to find a way to incorporate their name into it as best as you can.

There are so many ways to do this. For instance, you could get huge lettering over the crib itself, or you might even choose to have it embroidered on a number of personalised decorative items around the room. It’s entirely up to you how far you go with this, but one thing’s for sure - it’s definitely going to make the room much more personal for your newborn baby.

Take a look at these examples to gain some inspiration on how you might want to approach this particular decor trend.

Green With Envy

Finally, why not consider going for a colour-based decor. Specifically, one colour which seems to be hot right now in the world of nursery decor is green. This is a fantastic colour to work with for many reasons. Not only does it give you the opportunity to introduce elements of the natural world, it is also known to be a calming and welcoming colour, meaning that the nursery could do its job much more effectively.

Whether you incorporate a dark forest green panelling on the walls or you go for a light grass green carpeting, it’s all about making use of the colour and turning it into the star of the show. That’s something that is going to help your baby’s nursery to really stand out from the rest.
