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.
PLAID / BUFFALO CHECK / GINGHAM
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!
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Pudus Socks
You can’t help but smile when the face of a cutie animal is looking your way. We love seeing them on nursery walls and on clothing just the same.
Drawings, paintings, crafts, and art stations are expected to be front and center in playrooms and children’s rooms, and now Oprah has given them her stamp of approval for fashion accessories too!
The soft and subtle look of watercolors is simply timeless. Oprah’s Favorite Things list is encouraging us to make our own paintings and we are here for it!
ALL THINGS GOLD
We’ve been loving gold for a long time and have zero intention of slowing that shiny roll. Especially in the form of baby nurseries and bubble bath. Yup, bubble bath!
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Bubble Bath
Sure, florals aren’t groundbreaking, but they sure are blooming in more places than just the garden these days.
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Deluxe Hand Cream Set
You can layer our rooms and our outfits in the soft luxury of (faux) fur any day.
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Faux Fur Vests
BLACK AND WHITE
Gotta love it when just two colors make a complete statement. Easy and classic—the combination of black and white is as beautiful in rooms as it is in fashion.
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Contrast Hem Tunic
ENCOURAGING WORDS AND STATEMENTS
You can always count on Oprah for inspiring words of sentiment, encouragement, and empowerment. And we love her for it! We also love to see these sweet and strong notions show up in all things baby. Raise them right!
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Empowered Bracelets
WOOD PLUS WHITE
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.
We can’t get enough ROYGBIV! These colorful graphics are showing up on toys, swaddles, artwork, bedding and more in baby nurseries and now in adult items too. We need some whimsy and happiness in our lives too!
SMART TECH ITEMS
Let the WiFi do all the work! Baby monitors, decorative frames, and more got the tech upgrades that we crave.
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: WiFi Smart Frames
We know you’re super busy keeping tiny humans alive, but it just takes a little bit of water to bring a mega dose of freshness into your spaces with live plants.
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Grow Your Own Christmas Tree
These artistic splashes of color will never cease to be beautiful. And of course, Oprah has found a unique gift that nails this never-fading trend.
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Gradient Puzzles
So nice, she (kind of) did it twice. Strong words and sweet sayings are Oprah’s thing! Write them here, there, everywhere—but especially on giftable swaddles and napkins.
Oprah’s Favorite Thing: Napkins
