So, if you are designing or redesigning your nursery or your kids’ room, you should definitely read this post. It is full of hints and inspiration, and trust us, it will be your closest ally during the design process.
Here’s our list of this year top trends:

#1. Colour of the year: PURPLE

Pantone has once again announced their colour of the year and this time it is Ultra Violet. So, this year we expect to see lots of lavender and soft purple tones along side the classic pastel ones.

#2. Scandinavian design

It seems as if the minimalism of Scandinavian design has never got out of style, and yet, here it is again as the star of kids rooms. We love its clean lines and wooden furniture, especially cribs and bunk beds. It makes us feel light and uncluttered.

#3. Dots and pom-poms

Just yesterday I did some shopping for my little girl and every second piece of clothing had pom-poms or pois on it! So there is no doubt about it, dots simply have to find their place in your design this year!

Yes, you read well, not ALL birds, graceful birds: pink flamingos, white swans and colourful peacocks. Their elegance and grace will give that fairytale touch to your little ones’ room.

#5. Nursery nook inside master bedroom

After years of “separate the baby from the beginning” philosophy, little ones are back in the master bedroom. At least for the first few weeks. Make that baby nook the most stylish room corner of your home.
