If you’ve been on our Pinterest lately and seen copious amounts of cacti and skull taxidermy, I’m the guilty party. I’ll be honest, I’ve never been one for Western themes, but contemporary-modern furnishings and global inspired elements give the southwestern look an updated sophistication that I just can’t ignore. It possesses an almost whimsical quality even, which is why it’s one of the “it” looks for nurseries in 2016 — Honestly babies make everything cuter.

1. Keep it earthy

Earthy neutrals and natural elements are ideal with this modern trend. The neutral element of earth tones bring in a modern western element comparable to the traditional desert aesthetic, while woodgrains add interest and depth to the space. Added bonus: These tones are calming for baby.

2. Modern Furnishings

When it comes to furnishing your Southwest inspired nursery keep the furniture modern. It’s the perfect backdrop for the bold prints and complex textures of Southwest decor, which tend to speak for themselves.

3. Plants, succulents and cacti… Oh, My!

The easiest way to get the earthy vibe of the Southwest is to introduce western native plants into the space. But baby + cactus is one combination we don’t recommend making. Luckily, there are several great options to still bring a little green into your kiddos space.

4. Contemporary Lighting

Since traditional Southwestern textiles and aesthetics can be heavy and overpowering, it’s important to find ways to balance out the room. Streamlined lighting fixtures in mixed metals help to keep the space light and airy.

5. Rustic Accessories

Another hugely popular element of Southwest decor is rustic pieces. Arrows, feathers, giant animal heads hanging on walls. All of these elements help to create an authentic Southwest aesthetic. If you decide to go the detail route, they’re all baby-friendly. Win-win!
