Black and White Nursery Trend

One thing that has really changed when it comes to creating nurseries and kids rooms is that people have become more accepting of using black.
What do you think of this??

I really like this but I am a fan of having a graphic base like this and adding in plenty of texture and colour. And really, kids toys are just so colourful they become the key injections of colour in the space anyway.

This minimalist scandinavian inspired style is so very popular for adult interiors that it is natural that the look has crept into childrens spaces.

I think it looks best with a mix of some texture and some natural finishes like some timber. It also looks great with vintage pieces and I will show you some more colourful vintage styles next week.
It is quite distinct and it is so interesting how nurseries differ around different areas of the world. For example I find that American nurseries always seem to have a lot of soft furnishing and upholstered pieces and everything is layered and matching.  Sometimes to the extreme.  I will do another post showing some examples.  I don’t really know if us Aussies have a distinctive look , what do you think?

You can check all kinds of nurseries and kids rooms on my pinterest boards.

I would encourage you to feel free to mix things up a bit when decorating, recycle things, repaint furniture mix and match fabrics..but most of all make it yours.

      Hi Ashleigh, I’m not sure of the name of it but i have one similar for my daughter from Incy Interiors. I think it may be a european brand as i see it in many nurseries overseas. x
