The Baby Cot Shop’s Summer 2021 Nursery Trend Report
Planning on updating your little one’s nursery this summer? Get to know the must-have trendS that are set to be big, big news…
TREND #1: CLASHING PATTERNS
It’s time to be brave with clashing patterns. We’re talking stripes with spots, florals with checks or animal print with monochrome, layered together. It might sound daunting, but you’ll be surprised at how energetic and playful it makes any nursery. Here’s how to work the trend – apply Happy Dreams Liberty Wallpaper with the Multi Dots Rug – easy! Who said clashing patterns couldn’t be elegant?
TREND #2: PANTONE COLOURS OF THE YEAR 2021
This year, Pantone has released not one, but two Colours of the Year. And we couldn’t be happier with the winning shades of 2021. Get friendly with the chosen duo: Illuminating (a bright yellow) and Ultimate Gray (a pale grey). The best news? When mingled together they look ultra-modern and uplifting. Try the nursery trend for yourself with the London Grey Collection Changing Mat and Washable Yellow Mountains Rug.
TREND #3: JAPANESE x SCANDI DÉCOR = JAPANDI
Ever heard of Japandi? Well, it’s where Japanese décor meets Scandinavian interiors and Pinterest is dubbing it a major trend for Summer 2021. It’s all about sleek, minimalist furniture complemented by earthy, neutral tones. Whilst it sounds simple and subtle, Japandi nurseries are super-relaxing and fuss-free. Kit out your Japandi nursery with The Modern Cot Bed On Wheels for a chic, space-saving option.
TREND #4: RAINBOWS OF HOPE
Rainbows remain a big trend for summer, which is why we’re (still) all over them. The Baby Cot Shop launched the Interiors of Hope campaign in January 2021 and we’ve witnessed a soar in rainbow décor fans ever since. So why are rainbows set to be hot this season? They symbolise positivity and a ‘keep calm and carry on’ vibe – just the thing to uplift us when we walk into our home. What’s more, they brighten up your baby’s nursery, offering a visual reminder that there’s so much joy around you. Browse our Rainbow Edit here, full of charming rugs, wallpaper and wall art.
TREND #5: SHADES OF BLUE

The popular paint colour has been named the shade of summer – and if you’re a fan of deep, rich blues, this is the nursery shade for you.
