Holiday Trend – Into the Wild

Post by Anna Passadori, Nod’s resident trend expert

This holiday trend was inspired by firewood – the art of cutting, gathering and storing logs can be so beautiful.

The textiles of the holiday season make me want to stay inside all day! I could live in stacks and stacks of wool and flannel.

But mostly this trend was inspired by nature and all the amazing creatures that live within it.

Holiday Trend – Merry & Bright

Post by Anna Passadori, Nod’s resident trend expert

Getting the kids involved in Holiday decorating can be a fun bonding experience for the family. The challenge though can be creating décor that both you and the kids love. For our Merry and Bright Holiday trend, we went with bright and fun colors that will fill your home with a happy, festive feeling. The products are influenced by Scandinavian design, a modern and fun way to celebrate the Holidays.

The colors can range from a brights and metallics to more traditional red and green, but updated in a more modern way:

A rainbow palette looks best paired in a neutral setting. This clean, Nordic room is a perfect backdrop for some Merry and Bright décor:

In addition to white, tan or beige look great paired with a rainbow palette:

Girls’ Shared Space Design Ideas – Nursery & Bedroom

Design by Sara Polacek of The Land of Nod’s Design Services Team

Amanda was looking for ideas around a shared space design for her girls, giving a fun update for their combined nursery and bedroom. She was looking for a functional space with lots of girly elements and wanted to use a bed she already owned. To balance the pink, we incorporated grey and black accents. The flokati rug, pillows and grey pouf add texture and interest to the room. The best part about this space is it will be easy to update as the girls grow.  Accessories and artwork are the most cost-effective way to switch up a room!

Get The Look: Happy Camper

It’s fall again, and you know what that means! Snuggling up with cozy textiles and your favorite pumpkin-spiced beverages! It is also a good time to refresh your home for the season with nature-inspired décor such as wildlife motifs and earthy colors, or what we at Nod call, elements of the ‘Happy Camper Trend’. Incorporating a few camping elements and woodsy themes will make you long for a campfire to roast some marshmallows on!

This wall has the perfect green color! The wolf print and the log bench add the perfect fall touch:
