The Most Popular Nursery Themes this Year. And, the Winner is... January 01 2010

There are hundreds if not thousands of nursery decorating themes out there but it's easy to see which ones stood out in 2009.  The five most popular nursery themes this past year were... The Princess Themed Nursery – Ariel, Snow White, Cinderella continued to top the list as the most popular of Disney princesses which was reflected in kids room décor this year. And, the recently released Princess and the Frog movie will continue to fuel princess themed girls' rooms in 2010. There were plenty of options for princess décor without the mouse (Mickey, that is) with furniture, pedant lighting, wall stickers, and wall art using castles, wands, and tiaras.  This decor was primarily pink, purple, and white and helped moms bring the princess theme to life. The Gender Neutral Nursery– Modern nurseries continue to have a more gender neutral feel. Even knowing the gender of the baby, moms decorated in gender neutral themes more so in 2009 than ever before.  This was primarily done through colors, shapes, and alphabet décor.  Remember that gorgeous so "not" neutral nursery from Petit Tresor?  The color palette of orange, blue, purple, and yellow was a fun combo showing just this.  We did a story on wall mobiles using geometric shapes to show how designers found creative solutions for gender neutral wall decor.  And, we saw popular designers like MiGi designing alphabet themed bedding and Name Your Design designing alphabet themed wall canvases. The Organic Themed Nursery – Kermit said it was not easy being green. But, that was a long time ago.  In 2009, we found more options to create an organic themed nursery than in any previous year.  Whether you sought modern orange organic bedding from Pixel Organics or more classic styles from Coyuchi, there were great designs from which to choose.  Shades of low or no VOC wall paint were in abundance.  And Spoonflower, the custom fabric printing company, introduced organic fabrics so you could even design your own organic themed nursery. The Nature Themed Nursery – The nature themed nursery is a riff off the organic themed nursery and it came on strong in 2009.  Deer themed bedding, tree wall decals, and owl nursery wall decor made it easy for mom to recreate nature in the nursery. And the winner is... The Jungle Themed Nursery – The jungle themed nursery was the #1 desired nursery theme in 2009 and designers and retailers complied creatively bringing you blue elephants, pink hippo wall decals, orange lions, and lots of brown monkeys jumping on the bed. Moms had all the materials they needed to build their own safari.  Due to its versatility, we think the jungle themed nursery is going to continue on strong in 2010.
