The Retro Nursery Trend You’re About to See Everywhere in 2018
If a retro-chic nursery is what you’re searching for, look no further than the latest rattan decor trend. The versatile cane-like material (often but not always used in wicker-style woven furniture) adds tons of vintage charm and is perfect for giving an outdoorsy, breezy, and tropical vibe to any room as well. And fear not: While the material was super popular in the '70s, today’s pieces don’t doom you to a stale, dated look. Pairing rattan with modern colors and details makes it an easy option for a beautiful space for baby AND you.
