In the same vein as nature themes and earthy neutrals, natural materials are also having their moment. Wooden furniture, wooden shelves and classic wood toys are a great way to incorporate this trend. Ensure that the furniture in your children’s room lasts a long time by picking neutral-coloured matching items, including a bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers.But don’t forget about kid-friendly plants, dried flowers, or pampas grass that can bring the outdoors in. Children have a strong sense of identity so don’t to mark their space with their name.

Wheat, tan, and light sandy browns combine in this all-beige room make this lounge area the perfect moody earth tone inspired space. This combination is not only timeless but can be customised by adding extras such as the hanging plushies which can be taken down as your child gets older. Make a display of books, teddies or dolls on a set of shelves. This is a great way of keeping toys off the floor, yet still to hand when your child wants to get one down. Our favourite part is the silky white hanging bed canopy that adding a texture in this room which really helps to lift this space and complete the earth tone aesthetic.

Did you know starkly different colours rejuvenate the cognitive development of babies? Shades of blue with contrasting coral is a perfect gender-neutral colour pairing.

Bright green and yellow is another pop pair diverging from gender colour norms. Don’t forget to add a touch of nostalgia to your home decor accents and stir up fond memories in the later years. The nursery must reflect this beautiful process of constant learning, grows and evolves.

If your child’s toys are as colorful and beautiful as these, consider open shelving units that allow you to show them off and keeps everything in sight. If you want to go the extra mile, you can color coordinate them too. Another idea is you can opt for cubbies filled with wicker baskets are perfect for storing toys out of sight and keeping a clean, modern look. Again, remember that not everything has to be tucked away out of sight. Books and other small toys can stay outside of baskets, so your child is more incentivized to reach for them.

The nursery might be a room for a baby, but that doesn’t mean its design has to be rigidly babyish. In fact, a nursery should be a reflection of your tastes as well as a comfortable space for your little one. Although at first, all newborns tend to do it sleep, it won’t be long until they see it as a play space that will spark children’s imaginations, too.
