Striped Wallpaper

One of the most impactful ways to embrace the stripe trend in your nursery is through striped wallpaper. Whether you prefer bold, wide stripes or delicate, pinstriped patterns, wallpaper sets the stage for the entire room. The current stripe trend tends to be more soft pastel or neutral stripes in on area of the room. This adds depth and visual interest without overwhelming the space. Consider using striped wallpaper as an accent wall, above dado rail panelling or in an alcove. It would make a really cute reading nook backdrop too.

I Love Wallpaper have some perfect striped wallpaper in multiple colours to choose from, browse here.

Stripes in Prints

Inject some colour into your nursery decor with stripe prints. From adorable animal motifs to more minimal designs, stripes can add a playful but modern touch to your wall art. Mix and match different prints and colours to create a fun gallery wall that adds visual interest for your baby. Think about framing striped prints in wood frames for a more rustic look, or a black frame to really make it stand out.

Striped bedding

Transform your baby's cot into a cosy haven with striped bedding that combines comfort with style. Soft linen sheets with subtle stripes create a classic look, perfect for any nursery style. For a gender-neutral option, opt for soothing shades of beige or mint in a narrow striped pattern.

For older littles, add a striped duvet and pillow to their bed. Again, linens or fresh cottons are ideal here.

Stripes in Soft Furnishings

Soft furnishings play a crucial role in creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in your baby's nursery. Introduce stripes into your baby's room through cosy blankets, soft rugs, and snuggly throw pillows.

A striped rug can really be the focus of the room and ties the design together while providing a soft and comfortable surface for playtime.

Striped cushions in your reading nook or giant floor pillows would work well for this trend.
