Who doesn’t love a beautiful floral nursery? Florals have been a long lived favorite when it comes to nursery designs, however, when it comes to nursery trends 2020, they tend to be taking a little bit more of a modern twist this year. Instead of softer, lighter florals, more vibrant and colorful floral designs are trending. Floral nursery decor pieces that really pop and stand out such as floral wallpapers, bold floral sheets and crib bedding, and floral nursery wall decor are in. On the other side of floral, if you aren’t wanting to stick with the traditional pink and brighter colored floral style, dark florals are also making it big this year.

Leafy Greens

Delicate and elegant leafy patterns in varying shades of gorgeous greens… this is what botanical is all about now! A more tropical botanical style has been popular over the recent years, but as 2020 progresses, we’re seeing a shift towards more of a leafy take on it. Expect to see more leafy green crib bedding, wallpapers, and nursery decor pieces over the next year. Plus, tie in a couple gold or foilage accents in your baby’s nursery to give it a modern spin that works so perfectly with the green botanical look.
