Get The Look: Happy Camper

Written by Anna Passadori, Nod’s resident trend expert

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:

Hang up your favorite wildlife prints and try a fun wall storage idea like this wooden crate:

Even this toddler room gets into the spirit with textured fabric and wood accents:

What a fun idea to frame a vintage rucksack, or string small driftwood pieces to make a garland:

Get the Look: California Dreamin’

Written by Anna Passadori, Nod’s resident trend expert

For this look, I am going for a 1970’s palette mixed with the laid back culture of Southern California. Inspired by beachy sunsets, bohemian details, modern elements and natural materials, the California Dreamn’ look is unexpected for a kid’s room. However, the happy color palette and carefree elements make it super kid-friendly and fun.

The laid back, 70’s vibe of this room has a sunny, relaxing feel:

Get the Look – Deco Pop

Written by Anna Passadori, Nod’s resident trend expert

For this look I was inspired by a mix of Art Deco and the 1960’s, with a modern twist. Perfect for a girls’ room or nursery, this look is glamorous and bold with a flair for the over the top and dramatic.

Don’t be afraid of adding in dark colors like black or navy. These rooms are still very edgy and feminine without being overly saturated in pink or neutrals:

Use jewel tones and pops of color with a 60’s vibe. Mix up the materials using both high shine metallic’s and rich textiles. Look for overly feminine details and accessories:
