If there’s one place in the house you can afford to cut loose with a bit of creativity, it’s the nursery. Because let’s face it, as long as there’s a comfy bed your new housemate will be happy. So when it comes to the aesthetics, it’s all you. Embrace your inner wild child, get crafty and whip up some DIY treasures or keep it sleek and chic. Here are our favourite nursery trends for 2016.

1. Go green

Bring a touch of the outdoors inside with a hanging plant, wall feature or potted plant. It isn’t just an aesthetic thing – plants can help purify the air and increase oxygen levels. Just make sure they are kept well away from prying hands! If you can’t get your hands on the real thing then a green feature piece works just as well on a stylish level!
