Nursery Decor & Trends with Lily + Spice Interiors

I love decorating and had a ton of fun when I did up Ariana's nursery when she was born. With #2 on the way I've been curious to see what's changed since I did her nursery in 2013 and have been on the hunt for inspiration for her big girl room. Plus, if we have a boy I'll have to update the nursery for a little man (we've waited to find out what we were having with both babies).

I've been following Lily & Spice Interiors for a little while (check out her features in BOOMBALOO magazine) and love this company's style & love of local brands , so I asked founder & stylist Amanda if she would share her ideas for both a boy's & girl's nursery plus what's trending for 2015. I'm in love with her ideas! See below for Amanda's 2 nursery looks plus her top decorating & colour trend picks for 2015!

ON TREND -Eames chairs are by far popular still and have been for quite some time. I don’t see them going anywhere anytime soon! You can go HERE to find them most reasonably priced. Poufs have proven to stay holding strong, who doesn’t love a pouf?!  A definite must have!  Printed and fluffy rugs in a nursery or kids space can really pull the entire room together, this is a must have on my list. Gallery walls and prints are a great way of adding personal touch to a room. Take a peak HERE for some of my all time favorites. Annnnd the Teepees, we just got one at our house as a gift and my boys love it! They look great and have a wonderful way of making cozy memories! I love that they can fold up and tuck away if need be too, a definite plus when tidying up. Animal anything for boys is huge right now, plus the woodland theme is still going strong and is such a cute way to make a boys space look ‘real boy’. For the girls, lots and lots and lots of colour, everywhere! A neutral base with splashes of colour is also a great way to keep a space timeless so you can switch out pieces as time goes on without repainting or buying new furniture.

CLASSICS -I am not much of a classic gal and always seem to like things a little or a lot outside of the box .These were more of a challenge for me to come up with but I have a few ideas for you. A simple crib: I know from working with clients that generally this is something people tend to keep simple and timeless so kid after kid can use the same one without it looking outdated. Mobiles: these will never go away! The difference today is that there are way too many great ones to choose from, check out some of my favorites HEREHERE and HERE. Finally the dresser/ change table piece: I have seen clients purchase the rolling change stations which are very functional and work well especially when your babe is new, but for me it’s always about space. I like to dual purpose on that one by using a change pad on top of a dresser.

After working on a few nurseries so early in the year and watching trends start to develop so quickly, I have a few thoughts for you on what will be on trend and what will not for this upcoming year. I see a lot of colour for 2015! I am a sucker for monochrome and absolutely love neutrals and black with white but adding lots of coloured accents is for sure going to be on top this year. Here are the top colour trends for 2015:

Mint -This is the perfect colour for a boy or girl nursery, it's muted tone goes well with almost any shade of any colour. I have picked to pair it with coral and navy in my designs below to give you an example of what it could look like for either. It looks stunning with the here- to- stay trend of gold and also pairs nicely with the up and coming copper metallic!

Copper -Gold looks as though it will be holding strong this year, how can you go wrong with this classic?!  But copper is definitely on the rise and is a stunning neutral metallic that easily pairs with almost any palette. Again more of a girly look for the girls but touches of it would look nice in a boy’s space as well- maybe a storage bin or lamp  to offset a soft/muted palette.

Pastels -Lots of colour combinations in pastels have been popping up everywhere, all sorts of blues, pinks and greens. With touches of metallic for contrast or white, this is a for sure win. Lots of pastels create a very girly look and are perfect for a whimsy sort of feel or can also turn bold with touches of black as contrast. 

Coral -This gorgeous hue made a real statement in 2014 and so far I can see it holding strong and steady for another year. How can you not love this beauty?! It pairs great with gold and really looks sharp with white and most wood tones.
