Lets talk nursery trends for 2017……

The year has gotten away but lets look at what’s trending in children’s interiors this year and beyond.

1. Metallics and Rose Gold.  Expect to see a lot more particularly on larger items like cots. Our latest range Modern vintage was photographed on this Incy Interiors cot and it looks just divine.

Trend Watch; Metallics and Copper

Ok so metallics have been popular for quite a while now as we have discussed previously..many of the coolest interior trends are tending to seep into the coolest nurseries and kids spaces too.

Ive always been a fan of silver but the latest gold, copper and bronze offering give us an opportunity to create something different.  the most popular way to introduce metals into kids spaces seems to be through wall decals/stickers and through lighting.

I have seen many gold and copper nurseries over the last year and they have tended to be very feminine and frilly affairs so I was pleasantly surprised to find these more unisex and boyish options for you to be inspired by.

This rose gold Ellie cot by Incy interiors has been styled in a decidedly unfeminine way which is great to give you inspiration..especially with the mustard (another up and coming colour).  I think most people would tend to automatically picture this cot in a girls pretty nursery so it was very clever of them to show it here in a different way.

I love the simplicity of this delicate looking copper mobile (below).

I’ve most commonly seen copper/bronze paired with pinks and corals which I do love, but how great does it look with these mint and aqua tones.

Very fresh and the metallic touches lift the simplicity of this room.

We might do another post soon of some of the more feminine metallic rooms too..I may need to create one for myself…

And so I’ve put together a little inspiration board of products that can help add that little metallic touch to your nursery.  I have already got my eye on a few of these pieces for my new nursery.
