The buzzword in baby nurseries this year: texture. Whether it's displaying handwoven baskets, nubby throws and chunky rag rugs, or mixing fabrics like tweeds, felt, corduroy and leather, design-savvy parents are trading matchy-matchy nursery looks for something more sophisticated: a multidimensional, visual feast for baby's eyes. The move toward texture extends to furniture (think velvet gliders and wicker poufs), wallcoverings and home accessories, too. In particular, "Designers are also loving molded wood and 'faux bois,' which looks like wood but isn't," says Giggle founder and CEO Ali Wing. "Both concepts add a contemporary twist to a traditionally rustic element."
For inspiration, check out the gorgeous nautical-themed nursery of Giuliana Rancic's baby boy, Duke: the grasscloth wallpaper, painted wood ceiling, velvet couch and rope lamp are all proof of just how pretty the concept can be.
