Trend Spotting at ABC Kids Expo 2010: Walnut Finish

We’ve seen lots of two tone finishes, white is always popular and dark espresso or ebony finishes are still very hot, but from my observations on the floor at ABC Kids Expo 2010, walnut is the next big thing and I’ve loving it.

One of the first things that caught my attention on the floor of ABC Kids Expo was this nursery set from Westwood Design.  It’s got great clean lines with a retro vibe that I’m probably getting just because of the color.  I could see this fitting perfectly in a mid-century modern home.

One of these Bungalow rockers from Nurseryworks wouldn’t be out of place with that set either.  The tone of the wood is beautiful and warm, while the lines of the chair are clean and bold.

The Svan Scooter is newly available in walnut finish…

… and you may have seen Oeuf has many pieces in its nursery collections that are now available in a walnut finish including the Sparrow Collection.  As if it didn’t look good enough in the original colors, the Sparrow looks so chic in walnut.  I may have to use it in my next nursery design board.

I love this wood tone as a new modern option alongside white, light wood and super dark wood.  I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of it as the trend catches on!
