If you’re looking to create a statement in your child’s nursery, you’re in luck. Whether it’s a feature wall in a vibrant pattern, a show-stopping rug that catches your eye as soon as you enter the room, or even colorful drapery, furnishings, and décor, the options are endless. The only real requirement is that it needs to meet the criteria of being the pièce de résistance — and that’s no small order.

 

The must-have furniture piece

Every nursery needs furniture (that’s a given), but selecting a statement piece is an effective way to turn it into a main feature of the room. Think about including hero pieces like a modern black crib with a sleek acrylic finish, or a plush velvet rocker in blush – they’re guaranteed to steal all the attention! Alternatively, statements can be found through subtle touches, such as the Babyletto Gelato Crib and Dresser Feet Pack, which include four colored feet (available in petal pink or cool mint, to name a few) that can be used on the Babyletto Gelato Dresser. They’re perfect for giving classic bedroom furniture a fun and eclectic makeover.

A statement rug

The right rug is a powerful styling tool that can do so much more than just add warmth and comfort to your space. Whatever your preference — patterned, plain or in-between — a rug can help tie together the colors and interior style of the nursery. If you’re looking to make a statement, look no further than the Lorena Canals Woolable Abstract Rug — with its bold and colorful design, it doubles as a work of art. The Toddlekind Nordic Collection Playmat is another notable mention; it takes a practical nursery necessity like the play mat up a notch with its graphic design. Better still, it’s available in five on-trend colors, one being the very cool Neo-Matcha!

Feature wall

Nothing garners attention like a feature wall, and whether you’re working with a fresh coat of paint, wallpaper or artwork, it is an effective way to inject color and personality to your room. 

The Cait Kids Game-Day Wallpaper, for example, instantly adds interest, pattern and texture to a room while also doubling as large-scale artwork. Remember that not all wall features need to be bold and colorful to create a visual impact: a delicate, beautiful print like the Cait Kids Descending Paper Flowers can be equally as remarkable. When hung above a stunning white crib or dresser, it can achieve a stunning focal point.

All the trimmings

It’s important to note that not all features need be grandiose. They can be as simple and effortless as an eye-catching scallop-shaped trim on a cushion. 

Window treatments are a functional addition to a nursery in their ability to block out natural light, so why not make them a lovely bedroom feature? Pepper Home has a range of luxe curtains in gorgeous patterns from florals to check prints, all at a great value. Plus, all of their products are machine washable and dryer safe, making them child-friendly and easy to maintain.
