The Only 12 Things You Need When You Bring Home Baby


Graphic Elements

Sure, chevron is still huge, but we also love graphic designs like diamonds, herringbone and stars galore. Bring them into the room with a rug or pillow.

Geometric Wallpaper

Don’t shy away from bold shapes when it comes to your walls. Worried about committing to the scheme for the rest of your kid’s life? Go with Tempaper, which is 100 percent removable.

Adventure-inspired Decor

Hot-air balloons and maps are the new trucks and flowers.

Non-babyish Design

Go for pieces that stand on their own—whether in a nursery or not. A structured white rocker blends effortlessly with icy blues and cool grays.

A Gallery Wall

Instill a love of art in your child from day one with a collection of meaningful images hung gallery wall-style, preferably over chic herringbone wallpaper.

The Trick to Hanging a Gallery Wall

Teal And Blonde

Teal fabrics and accent colors play beautifully with light blonde wood and scandi design. Bonus points for a retro midcentury chair.


Neutral Palettes

Stick with colors that sidestep gender norms. Grays, creams and whites are great go-tos. Pair with stuffed animals and fluffy carpeting and you’ve got a look that’s beautiful and comfy.

Texture Mash-ups

Then use wood, wool and cotton to bring that neutral palette to life. From oversize toys to crocheted poufs, these pieces are whimsical and visually interesting.
