Planning for your new little one’s arrival is lots of fun. One of the most exciting tasks is preparing the nursery. Get inspiration from this post which covers the top nursery decor and baby crib bedding design trends for 2019.
Why Choose a Trending Design?
Choosing a trending design means you’ll have an easy time finding the perfect baby bedding. Other nursery staples such as mobiles, wall decals and lamps will also be widely available in the theme or color of your choice when you choose a trending design.
By guiding your choices with a theme or design plan, you can make sure that all of the nursery elements will fit in well together. From a gorgeous glider to wall decals, crib bedding, nursery art, stuffed animals and even your changing table and crib, all items will match nicely.
So, what are the design trends for nursery decor and crib bedding in 2019? Here are the top trends:
1. Metallic Gold
Paired with pink, white or another color, metallic gold is in. Not a gold fan? Opt for silver instead. These metallic colors add some gild and shine to the nursery in the form of tasteful wall decals, accents on lamps and borders on baby bedding. Get inspired by our products featuring gold and make this color the keystone of a gorgeous nursery palette.
These gentle gray giants are the perfect nursery companions. Elephants continue to be a popular theme for both boys and girls nurseries. The theme is easy to embellish with additional features such as balloons and other animal friends. Choose from a variety of styles in elephants including realistic and more fanciful designs. For your color scheme, gray will be a perfect choice that you can accent with pink, baby blue or another color you prefer.
Whimsical owls featuring bright colors and wide eyes offer a wonderful nursery theme. Favored for girls’ nurseries, owls are adorable in the nursery setting.
Keep things interesting by adding other woodland animals or using an interesting color scheme. You may also consider adding in forest elements such as trees, making the owls seem right at home.
4. Jungle or Safari
Imagine monkeys dangling from a tree or lions strolling on the savannah. Jungle or safari animals are an excellent choice for a nursery theme. As your child grows, they’ll undoubtedly love the animals in their room. Include monkeys, snakes, giraffes, lions, frogs, butterflies, tigers and more!
Start out with a quality baby bedding set to make the theme clear.
For boys, camo is the way to go. Combine camo with a jungle or dinosaur theme to keep the theme light-hearted. You might do camo as an accent wall or purchase a camo window valance. Small details work well for this trend. Be sure to check out our blue camo crib bedding.
Introduce your child to the world of dinosaurs from a young age. Most young children adore these prehistoric creatures, so it’s a theme your little one will likely grow into easily.

11. Pink for Girls and Blue for Boys
The classic color choices of pink for girls and blue for girls appears to be timeless. You can fit these colors in with a variety of themes such as animals, hearts, patterns, transportation, and more.
However, if you’re creating a gender-neutral nursery, choose gray. It’s the gender neutral color of choice in 2019. Then, if you want, you can add splashes of pink or blue after the baby is born.
12. Woodland Animals
An endearing theme, woodland animals feature bears, foxes, owls, deer, raccoons and more. Adjust this design trend towards whimsical, sweet animals or a more rustic style. Choose woodland crib bedding to start with and build your theme around the color scheme and animals used. Some ideas for nursery decor include a green or brown accent wall, birch wallpaper, and natural wood furniture.
13. Hearts or Love Theme
Cozy, tender and bursting with sweetness, a hearts or love-themed nursery is an adorable choice for your baby girl’s room. From a sweet, heart lamp to mobiles and decals, there are many ways to incorporate this theme into the nursery. You can also easily feature some of this year’s trending colors such as metallic gold, pink and gray.
