Your Ultimate Nursery Style Guide for 2019

Written by Melissa Robertson

Nurseries have come a long way, baby. From the days of pink, blue or yellow walls and cartoon character furniture nurseries have been transformed into sophisticated rooms featuring high-end design. PLN has gathered all the latest trends and where to buy to take these styles home.

Buffalo check

The buffalo check trend isn’t going anywhere in 2019, but it has been upgraded to include more than the traditional red and black. From feature walls to sweet accents, buffalo check is a sweet addition to any nursery.

A statement wall with this wallpaper is a great way to stay trendy with a classic finish.

Choosing accessories with a popular print is a great way to stay on trend without a huge commitment. Plus, who doesn’t love storage in a nursery?

This blanket trio hits all the right notes by combining buffalo check, woodland creature, and geometric shapes.

These cute prints are a great way to do a feature wall that will grow with your baby.

Bold wallpaper

This pretty floral print is easy to install (peel and stick!) and transforms a room from ordinary to elegant.

This cool print reminds us of the Hungry Caterpillar but also is a nod to everything southwest.

Spoiler alert-we love everything about this bedroom. Especially the flower decals. This design could easily transition from nursery to little girl’s room without skipping a beat.

The beauty of this wallpaper print is that is colourful and bold without being overwhelming. It makes a beautiful statement for any room, but would be especially sweet in a nursery.

This wallpaper reminds us of children’s book illustrations. Not only would like paper make you feel you were living in a storybook, but it is removable!

Adding new textures can create an interesting visual pop to your space. A fun new trend (and a throwback to the 70’s) is macrame. Whether you want to try your hand at this handicraft or want to check out these cool versions, they are a trendy addition to any baby’s room.
