Nursery Vibes: The Arrows Trend

According to Project Nursery’s predictions for top 2016 nursery trends, arrows and triangles are ‘so last year’. Sorry, I love you Project Nursery but I couldn’t care less as arrows and triangles are two of my top themes for my nursery plans. I love them both. I love a geometric print and a little bit of tribal, and am drawn to these two designs so I really don’t care if they’re so 2015 or so 1915, I’m a fan.

So with this in mind, I’ve been looking at some of my favourite arrow design touches for the nursery. From full on wall coverings to subtle accessories, arrows are a cute theme to bring any colour palette to life and are another perfect gender-neutral option if you’re planning a nursery without knowing if you’re having a boy or a girl.

So diving straight in with a bold wall decal, as featured in Project Nursery’s 2014 nursery trends (yes, 2014, and what?), the soft grey shade means you can go mad on the coverage, as they’ve done in this example. Really love arrows? This could be the look for you.

Alternatively if you’re looking for something a little more subtle, these arrow wall stickers from Dana Decals in gold are gorgeous and are just enough of a nod to the theme without it being overpowering. I can’t get enough gold so this was always going to be a winner for me. Unfortunately for us UK dwellers, Dana Decals is in the US and it doesn’t look like they ship to the UK, but this is all about inspiration and I’m sure Etsy or some other similar retailer would provide something equally as pretty.

Sticking with the golden arrow theme, this fabric definitely is available on Etsy and is on my short list for fabric to make my nursery blinds. It’s so just so god damn sweet.

This mobile is a very cute way to add a touch of arrow without it being the main focus of the room, if that’s what you want. I’ve seen it on Pinterest in tons of different colours, so whatever your palette, there’s an arrow mobile for you!

Next up is a piece of wall art that I came across on Instagram and fell in love with, both the arrows and the colours are right up my street. It’s by the lovely Fishtitch who have loads of gorgeous prints (I’m also a big fan of their Cactus print) and garlands. Check out their Etsy shop for more like this…

Last but not least (and I really could go on forever), I fell in love with this Bohemian Arrow crib sheet, available from Etsy. It’s more feminine then anything else I’ve looked at, so definitely more suited for a baby girl, but I love the colours and the soft feathery effect.

What do you think of the tribal arrow trend? And do you care if something’s ‘on-trend’ or not when it comes to your baby?!

  1. I love wall decals, so versatile and also great when you fancy a change as can just be replaced. The crib sheet is absolutely gorgeous! I have recycled our mobile (from when the boys were babies) several times by changing the objects hanging on it. It now has super Mario figures (I used key ring toys) the boys love it and it looks great! Thank you for linking up to #ablogginggoodtime 🎉

  2. I love it!! And I agree — who cares about trends and if it’s in or out?! I love the trend for little black triangles but, by the time I actually get around to redoing the boys’ room, that will be so passé!!! Who cares eh! Love these ideas 🙂 Caro #HomeEtc

  3. That fabric is stunning!
    And don’t worry about when something is popular. Think of it this way, if it’s a trend in the states, hopefully the year later it becomes available in the UK high street 🙂
    Also, I’m sure there are companies who wil custom do wall decals if you can’t find the pattern exactly.


    1. Very true! The companies who do custom wall decals can be expensive for what I need, but I have found another way which I’ll share on the blog soon!… Thanks for reading 🙂 x
