April Showers: Trendy Design, Good to the Last Drop

I’m almost afraid to say it—like seriously—but here it goes. WINTER IS FINALLY OVER! YES, MAMA! It’s done, it’s a wrap. Call up December because that’s where you’ll find winter! And now that I’ve said that, please cue the giant freak blizzard to start over Manhattan.

April showers provide a refreshing rinse from the winter blues as well as great design inspiration for new, on-trend ways to embrace the rain. Here are a few of my favorite finds for rain-inspired nursery decor.

Clouds are a classic in the nursery, and one of my most requested motifs is a hand-painted cloud ceiling. Another way to work in this trend is with a cloud garland. It is neutral and simple yet full of character and charm.

Black and white is super in vogue right now in children’s room design. Pop art-inspired raindrops splash over this black and white cloud pillow. Pieces like this allow you to stay trendy without a huge financial investment or time commitment. A couple of pieces like this keep the nursery fresh.

Another reason I’m always grateful for April showers is the undeniable fact that those showers bring May flowers! Great art photography is always chic, and this fine art flower photograph is available in an array of sizes and color variations. I love art like this because it speaks to the wonder of childhood without being too cloying or sweet—it can live with your baby for many seasons to come.

When it comes to style and design, let’s all open the flood gates and let it rain. Heck, let it pour! Does your baby’s space feature rain-inspired nursery decor?
