Nursery colors, decor, lighting, and more – we reveal the key 2023 nursery ideas. As this year comes to a close, we've been busy talking to designers and experts while keeping an eye on the biggest nursery trends for 2023.
When it comes to the latest nursery design trends for 2023, we are not talking about fads that come in and out quickly. We are talking about nursery trends with staying power- timeless and elegant, guaranteed to transform spaces and help you create a nursery that puts a smile on your face each time you walk inside.
These latest 2023 nursery ideas are inspired by what we've seen on the runways, social influences, shifts in the interior design world, and of course in sustainable approaches.
Over the last few years, we've spent more time in our homes than ever before and changed how we approach our interior spaces - functionally and aesthetically. Simply put, we want our interiors to reflect our personalities, help us rejuvenate, inspire us, and provide a cocooning effect that makes us feel safe, cozy, and happy.
These are some of the biggest 2023 nursery ideas we expect will dominate the design world in 2023.

THE BIGGEST NURSERY TRENDS FOR 2023
1.INCORPORATING NATURAL MATERIALS
One of the biggest 2023 nursery ideas is to corporate natural materials—such as wood, stone, and plants—into nursery designs. Bringing in natural materials makes us feel connected to the outdoors and natural elements. They add warmth to the interior and give it a cozy vibe.
This year, we see us gravitating towards interiors that exude sophistication but in a more approachable manner. Gone are those interiors that make us feel rather stuffy and formal. Instead, nurseries will have a somewhat relaxed take on sophistication, with materials and textures that are inviting and comfortable.
3.BRILLIANT GREEN SHADES
Yes- expect to see nurseries painted in brilliant green shades, and we are here for it! Green paint colors can add depth and character to a nursery design, quite unlike any other color, and look beautiful when paired with brass accents, natural materials, and lighting.
4.WALLPAPERED NURSERY walls
Wallpapered nursery walls are a big trend in 2023, and we expect to see gorgeous patterns and colors make quite a statement. In 2023, we'll see wallpaper on all four nursery walls and take center stage in the nursery design. From woodland-inspired wallpaper to botanicals to muted maximalism - the wallpaper designs will run the gamut.
We can expect 2023 nursery designs to feature some arches. Arches are one of the biggest architectural trends in the interior design world, and there's no reason it would not reflect in nursery designs. Arches and gentle curves adds movement and softness to the space.
6.STATEMENT TABLE LAMPS
For nursery lighting in 2023, expect to see statement table lamps in the nursery that are both decorative and functional. Beautiful table lamps featuring sculptural and textured bases can elevate the nursery.
This year, as in the past year, we are craving interior spaces that are cozy and comforting. Expect to see layered textiles, textures, lighting, and thoughtfully curated nursery furniture pieces that add depth, character, and charm to create a space that's sumptuous and welcoming.
8.DARK BLUE HUES
In 2023, dark blue hues are going to be everywhere in nursery designs- adding elegance and serenity to the baby's room.
In 2022, we've seen plaster and lime wash become popular, and we expect it to make its way into nursery designs in 2023, adding depth and texture to nursery walls everywhere.
10.SUSTAINABLE NURSERY DESIGNS
Parents are more mindful of the environmental impact and make sustainable design decisions, whether choosing a nursery rug, picking nursery decor, or shopping for nursery furniture.
11.PURPLE IN ALMOST ALL SHADES
Purple in almost every shade is having a big comeback. Digital Lavender, Coloro's 2023 Color of the Year, has created so many waves, and we expect to see different hues of purple in nurseries in 2023.
In 2023, we expect to see bold rugs in vibrant color combinations setting the color palette for the nursery and adding richness and depth to the space.
2023 will see nursery designs infused with warmth. You'll notice nurseries with beautiful warm wood, warm color palettes and plenty of textures.
14.LUXURIOUSLY LAYERED LIGHTING
It's all about layering your nursery lighting in 2023 to create different zones in your nursery while elevating the look and feel of the space.
15. cozy textures
One thing is for sure –cozy textures are here to stay! As we look to make our interiors cozy and more approachable- cozy textures can add a breath of freshness to the nursery.
16. GEOMETRIC PATTERNED RUGS
From small scale to big and bold- geometric patterns are a big nursery rug trend for 2023. Rugs with small-scale geometric patterns ground the space and let the rest of the design elements shine, while large-scale geometric patterned rugs take center stage in the nursery design.
17. WALLS WITH ARCHITECTURAL DETAils
In 2023, we expect many nursery walls to be tastefully upgraded with architectural details, such as trim and molding, to add depth and interest to the walls.
18. WELL DRESSED WINDOWS
When it comes to nursery curtains, well-tailored and fitted are still a favorite. Nursery curtains, specifically blackout curtains, that are gorgeous, hang beautifully, and are practical will be sought after.
