5 Nursery Style Trends to Look Out for in 2022
Planning and decorating your baby’s nursery can be super exciting, and it’s all part of prepping to welcome your new arrival into the world.
The nursery is somewhere both you and your little one will inevitably be spending a lot of time together in the months and years to come. So, finding a timeless, long-lasting style that feels right for you is vital.
This is why we’re taking a look at some of 2022’s hottest nursery trends to help inspire your style choices, while keeping things practical and organised for when your little one makes their first appearance.
Gender-Neutral Nursery Design
According to baby magazine, the hashtag ‘gender-neutral nursery’ was used over 72,000 times in 2021, and the trend is due to continue this year, with gender-neutral nurseries set to become the norm in many households.
This is great news for parents looking to keep the gender of their new arrival a surprise. The gender-neutral trend is also ideal for extending the life span of your little one’s space to accommodate changing tastes as they grow, or even potential siblings.

Natural accents are set to make an appearance in more and more nurseries, as parents embrace the softer stylistic touch of natural materials in their little one’s sleep space. This can be seen everywhere from the continued popularity of rattan lampshades and furniture, to woven storage for holding everything from cuddly toys to nappies.
With larger, more statement pieces like cots and cot beds, natural, unpainted wood is making a firm comeback. SnuzKot Skandi Natural, the most popular of our SnuzKot colourways, is forever the first choice for parents looking for a classic, neutral centrepiece for their little one’s bedtimes.
The SnuzFino collection, the newest addition to our range of sleek and contemporary nursery furniture, also comes in a stylish array of neutral colourways. Choose from Slate, Dove, and White combined with classic neutral accents for the perfect look.
Along with the softness of natural materials, hard edges and pointed corners are on the out this year, with curved and rounded edges taking precedence in some of the more popular nursery furniture pieces of 2022.
Less harsh, this curved effect will soften even the boldest of nursery spaces, lending a contemporary edge that can’t be beat. Snuz has been ahead of the curve for a while now, with rounded edges a consistent style motif in both our highly popular SnuzPod Bedside Crib, as well as our SnuzKot Cot Bed collection.
Stars & Celestial Themes
Looking to the skies for inspiration yet again, this is a trend that continues to shine brightly in many nurseries.
To add a few small touches of celestial magic to your nursery, consider including starry bedding and sleepwear as part of your little one’s bedtime routine. Reach for our popular Cloud Nine and Star patterned crib and cot sheets, while keeping them cosy in a matching SnuzPouch.
For an extra touch of whimsy to help your little one nod off, consider accessorising with our Snuz Baby Mobile, the perfect addition to baby's bedtimes. This sweet sleep accessory encourages relaxation with a celestial array of plush stars, puffy white clouds, and a curvy crescent moon to dance above your little one's head as they drift into the land of nod.
Our SnuzCloud Baby Sleep Aid is a soft, plush, and portable sleep accessory. This adorable little cloud will keep your baby company both in their nursery and on the go, helping them doze off with soft lights and pink noise sound effects.
Looking to take the theme all the way? Feature walls offer statement style for a nursery that knows its theme. @mothertodaughters has added a sprinkling of magic to her nursery with this starry wall as a backdrop to her extended SnuzKot Toddler Bed. Meanwhile, @_mrs_nash_ is sending us starry-eyed with the constellations and twinkly moon & star accessories alongside her SnuzKot.
Playful Patterns & Lines
Line art and playful illustrations bring a modern flair to traditionally twee nursery art. Simple, subtle, yet full of character, bold nursery illustrations are popping up on wallpapers and decals, and on all manner of nursery accessories.
Our take on this trend can be found in our popular Rainbow nursery bedding design. Available in both monochrome and in full colour, this statement pattern is both gender-neutral, and perfect for any playful nursery style.
