The 7 Hottest Nursery Trends for Design-Forward Mamas
You give your Pinterest boards as much attention as your Google cal, stockpile shelter magazines and rearrange your coffee table weekly. And your baby? She’s going to have the same eye for design as her mama. Whether you've got a little one on the way or are simply looking for an update, here are the seven most au courant trends on the nursery decor front—as illustrated by some of our favorite blogger moms.
Baby cabinets of curiosities are an essential. (We mean, where else to display their tiny shoes?) But this season, standard kiddie bookshelves and floating ledges are being swapped for airy, circular mesh numbers—like Nicole DiGiacobbe’s sweet mini gallery above.

The boho baby nursery trend is still a heavy-hitter this season. And the pièce de résistance? Small-scale, beaded chandeliers, which add soft polish and not-too-cutesy whimsy. How perfect is Julia Dzafic’s neutral number, used as an anchor in her otherwise girlie space?

Glam Changing Stations
Diaper changing? The opposite of glamorous. But that doesn’t mean you can’t elevate your “station” like Arielle Noa Charnas did. We’re loving the move toward ladylike vanity setups where diaper-changing pads mingle with potted blooms, artwork and statement mirrors.
One luxe and easy design trick? Stick to a single color scheme and amp it up with different tints and textures. (Bonus points for age-appropriateness well into tween-dom.) How soft and dreamy is Rachel Parcell’s layered blue nursery?
Massive blooms are having a major design moment—but not every space can stomach them. The nursery, with its temporary lifespan, provides the perfect place for a playful statement. We’re seriously swooning over Brittany Chinaglia's moody take on the trend.

We’ve noticed a distinct trend away from “baby furniture” lately, with practical mamas seeing the long-term value in pieces that will grow with their children and later adapt to a guest room. In Louise Roe’s English country house-themed nursery, dark wood furniture provides a gorgeous pop of warmth and character.
