Nursery Design Trends

If you’re expecting a baby in the coming months, decorating a beautiful nursery to welcome your bundle-of-joy is probably on the top of your nesting “to do” list. Decorating the nursery is a happy project that allows you and your partner to prepare and anticipate the arrival of your baby (or babies) with great excitement. Here at Webb Carpet Company in Fayetteville, NC, helping our customers select the perfect nursery flooring is one of our favorite things, whether you’re interested in cozy broadloom carpet or hardwood layered with a stylish rug for the new space.

Social media sites like Pinterest and websites like Project Nursery have made nursery decorating a hot topic in the interior design world. Nursery design trends cover the spectrum from gender-neutral monochromatic spaces, to bolder spaces with large-scale wallpapers. Webb Carpet Company has compiled top trends in nursery design along with complementing flooring selections. We hope you and your bundle of joy love the choices as much as we do!

Soothing Neutrals

The interior design trend of soothing colors like taupe and gray has evolved into spa-like nursery décor. We’re seeing nursery furniture, such as cribs, in colors like weathered gray, simple white, or natural sand. Ceilings, trim, and walls are painted serene gray tones like Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter that evoke a sense of calm.

And what new mother and baby doesn’t need calm, right? The monochromatic and soothing trend can easily adapt with pastel accents like pink or blue, or remain neutral for parents who opt not to learn the gender in utero. We love this calming gray baby boy nursery with rhino details.

For this trend, Webb Carpet Company recommends a luxuriously soft carpet like Design Texture Gold in Natural Wood, Parchment, or Pearl.  An added bonus, the Anso nylon fiber is an ideal stain-resistant choice for kids’ spaces. For an affordable hard surface option, Ancestry laminate in Chardonnay is a gorgeous choice with grey and taupe undertones. To top the laminate, we love this yummy shag rug which is perfect for tummy time.

Bold for Baby

On the total opposite end of the design spectrum, other expecting parents are going big and bold for baby with pops of color, wallpaper accent walls, graphic patterns, and unexpected accessories. For example. check out this deep charcoal wall mural featuring woodland animals. Can you handle the cuteness?

Blogger Ashlee Nichols took the wilderness-theme to bold new design heights with a black-and-white buffalo-check accent wall, layered rugs, and lots of unique textures such a reclaimed wood and leather for her baby boy. If you’re in the market for pink, designer Vanessa Antonelli has us swooning over her baby girl nursery covered in incredible geometric wallpaper. We would spend all day in these dreamy nurseries!

Bold design requires bold flooring. For this trend, consider stylish level-cut-loop carpet patterns like After Hours in Essence. Rich hardwood like Kinship in Coffee Bean adds drama and warmth to the space. Depending on your theme and color pallet, check out Webb’s endless selection of patterned rugs for layering on top of your broadloom carpet or hard surface flooring.
