Neutral Nursery Modern Crib Bedding Design
The trend is to create a calm, relaxing, simple neutral nursery — ideal for baby to get a good night’s sleep. Those who seek this calm haven don’t want a nursery screaming with busy patterns, bright colors, or clutter. What’s trending in modern crib bedding is a minimalist feel that highlights soothing neutrals, soft fabrics, and simple nursery designs.
While neutral nurseries are minimalistic, new parents delight in searching for wall décor, chandeliers, and wall accessories. For wall décor, this includes peel and stick wallpaper, walls painted in stripes, wood-paneled walls, and more. These options are accessible and affordable. With the ease of DIY and the myriad of ideas on Pinterest, the possibilities for wall décor is endless. Chandeliers or vintage lighting can make a modern nursery.
Taupe, gray, and cream top the list of what’s in demand for gender neutral modern crib bedding. Flax linen is the top seller at Liz and Roo; it’s a beautiful natural fabric that can be left alone or used in conjunction with an accent color.
