The monochrome nursery trend continues to be strong but where is it headed.

Before decorating for your baby check out where this nursery trend is headed.

With the launch of our black and white Nordic Winter Baby Blanket and Quilt Range we thought it would be a great time to think about it.

Black and white nurseries have been dominating boys nurseries for quite a few years now.  When I first started Alphabet Monkey in 2010, black was still quite a new colour to use in nursery design.  We were writing about it back in 2013 here  and then again in 2014 here.  As the Scandi trend grew in grown up interiors, it also spread to the nursery and kids room in the form of black and white nurseries.

It’s such a great look and also a great base for adding a dash of colour or even mixing them all in using the colours of children’s toys and objects that they collect along the way.

We know there are so many of you out there hooked on this look so it won’t be going anywhere fast however there are some new directions it can take to keep us interested.

As we noted in our Nursery Trend report for 2017  , the pure black and white look is evolving.  It’s currently still popular and as timeless as ever for those fans of Scandinavian design however we are seeing the introduction of more natural touches.

Think natural fibres like jute and linen, textured storage in all kinds of basket ware, and the introduction of leather, timber , macrame and the like.  They all add an extra depth to the simple monochrome look we have been seeing for a while now.

I do love the way the linen gives the look texture and bit of softness. Notice the addition of timber with it just adds extra dimension to the room.

We love how our mums make the look their own so with the Nordic Winter Range you have the option to keep things crisp with black and white only , or to add the on trend texture of 100% natural unbleached linen.

What do you think?? Are you are a purist or are you loving the idea of adding natural textures and fibres?
