Oprah’s Favorite Things List Goes Nursery!

We all know that Oprah just knows what’s going on. The Queen of all things gifting has done it again with her annual list of Oprah’s Favorite Things, and while we were busy tossing things into our carts, we couldn’t help but notice how many of her favorite things mirror current nursery design trends.

Whatever you’d like to call it, this bold graphic pattern hit 2018 hard and plans on continuing its popularity well into 2019. It’s a box we will always check!

Natural wood tones mixed with shiny whites allow both textures to show their beauty. Seeing them mixed together in two of our favorite things—baby cribs and charcuterie boards—pretty much solidifies this trend as win for us.
