Planning your nursery decor is one of the most fun and exciting parts of your pregnancy. Seeing your nursery come together, with specially chosen decor and soft furnishings, makes everything seem real. Looking at your empty cot and realising there’ll be a tiny human in there very soon is a wonderful feeling.
You might feel overwhelmed with choice. There are so many nursery furniture options. There are also colour schemes to consider – you might know the gender of your baby and want something gender-specific. Rather than colours, you might opt for a theme. We visit lots of newly decorated nurseries because we offer lifestyle newborn photography in our clients’ homes, and we love being able to see how nursery decor trends change.

Let’s take a look at some nursery trends for 2020.
It’s safe to say that we fell in love with grey interiors during 2019 and that trend shows no signs of slowing as we move into 2020. We love this grey nursery scheme which is brightened up with a splash of yellow. It’s also perfect for either gender, and grown-up enough to last a few years.
We love the unusual cushion used in this nursery interior design scheme. You can find a similar one here.
Nautical themes for your nursery are wonderfully unisex. As well as lending itself to either gender, a nautical theme can also last well beyond the baby phase.
This simple seascape is easy to recreate with paint and stencils. Or you could make it even easier by opting for wall stickers.
There are some brilliant nautical themed wall stickers here.
If you want a more subtle nod to the seaside for your nursery, we love the clean and simple navy and white combo used here.
Keeping the walls white and using navy for your nursery accessories will allow you to easily change the colour scheme for the room as your baby grows up. For a similar cot for the nursery, take a look at the Ikea range of nursery furniture.
Tropical themes were big news in 2019 and this looks to continue into 2020. This beautiful nursery teams grown-up naturals with tropical hints to create a beautiful and versatile nursery.
This tropical nursery bedding would set look perfect in your tropical themed nursery.
If you are wondering about adding some plants to your nursery to bring this theme to life, you’ll love this blog I wrote about the best plants to add to your baby’s room.
Pastels are another nursery decor trend that shows no signs of losing popularity. A splash of metallics can elevate your pastel colour scheme to something special. This pink and gold nursery scheme uses spots and stripes to add a dash of metallic and the result is gorgeous.
Varying pastel shades add interest to this design and ensure that rose gold touches work harmoniously with the scheme. You could achieve an amazing look for your nursery by painting your feature wall in pastel pink and adding gold spot stickers like these.
During our lifestyle newborn photography sessions we visit clients at their homes across the Salisbury area. This means we get to see some beautifully decorated baby rooms. Here’s a selection to inspire you.
