New Trends in Nursery Design

You’ve picked a name and have started settling into the fact that your family is growing. Now comes the important decision about how to decorate the nursery. Gone are the days of just choosing between “pink or blue”. Now more trendy furniture and high design options are available to expecting parents.

Below are 5 nursery designs we love:

Dream a Little Dream

Cool soft colors bring a light and airy feel to the nursery. Consider using wall stickers, stencils or a mural to create the look of sweet birds, hot air balloons or, perhaps, a ferris wheel, hovering over your baby’s crib.

Go West

Giddy Up! Your little cowboy will feel right at home in this western-inspired nursery. Rustic touches such as a raw wood crib, faux fur throw, antlers and a barn door will give your nursery a cool western feel helping your child sleep off into the sunset.

Super Mod

Paint the accent wall in the nursery black? Yes! Just hang a vivid piece of art, use brightly colored curtains and accessorize the room with a modern rug, throw pillow and minimal light fixtures. This will create a funky cool space for your kiddo.

All That Glitters

Metallics are making their way from the runway into the nursery. Give your child the royal treatment by using metallic based paints and accessories. Make sure it sparkles by hanging a beautifully ornate chandelier from the ceiling.

Planning Ahead

Transitioning beds and convertible cribs are a great investment. Several companies offer cribs that covert into toddler beds and, in some cases, into full-sized beds. As your child ages out of the crib, you can transform the nursery into a toddler bedroom – all you would need to purchase is a new twin mattress.

Finish It Off With The Perfect Mattress

Colgate is legendary for our exacting standards when it comes to manufacturing safe crib and toddler mattresses. We use only the highest quality components, hand assembled right here in the USA because while many crib mattresses may look similar on the outside, we know it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

Visit our website to find the the perfect mattress for your child. Remember, if you decide to go with a non-traditional shaped crib, such as round or oval, Colgate can create a custom mattress for you.
