New Trend; Geometric Designs for the Modern Nursery

Ok well if you have been consistently watching pinterest, etsy treasuries and fashion you may not really think this is a new trend but in terms of having it filter down into interiors and then into children’s interiors takes a bit of time and so in that regard it is still quite new. Yes, yes chevron is going a bit nuts but i’m looking more towards triangles, diamonds and that sort of thing.

I saw this very cool design board from Jacinda from Hide and Sleep Interiors on her Facebook feed and thought I would share it. Jacinda specialises in designing children’s interiors and does some lovely work. I actually love the quirky black toadstool night light…mmmm..maybe time to redecorate Campbells room.

So seeing it reminded me to get my act together with my own little geometric project. A little while ago I designed some cute triangle design fabric myself as I wanted to create something new and contemporary but couldn’t find a fabric. So I had some printed and used the samples to create a patchwork with other modern patterns but hadn’t actually finished it off yet. So here is the first look from first idea below when I threw a few fabrics together…

To the end result..i am really happy with the cool mix of fabrics and patterns and i really love the colour combination, especially the black to give it an edge.

I will be listing this new one of a kind quilt shortly and may order some more of my fabric to do a simple triangle quilt for a more simple aesthetic..and also good news for those wanting grey chevron quilts as i have some to list as well.

And just to show that trends do take a while to filter down..I thought it was interesting that Belinda from Nest Design Studio which also specialises in children’s interiors designed a geometric and neon(another trend) board just because she wanted to do one because no one had requested anything like that yet…after checking out this cool board I’m sure she will have many more requests in the future.

    I love the non obvious for kids rooms and Geometrics aren’t – it’s kind of adult. Gorgeous inspiration board Nicole! Mel x

      Yes The designer in me totally agrees but sometimes the mum in me thinks they have their whole life to have grown up things so enjoy having the baby stuff while they can..xx
