Designing your baby’s bedroom can be a lot of fun and gives you the chance to make some bold and quirky design choices that you might not be able to introduce in other areas of the home!
Here at Houseology we have put together our pick of the six most stylish nursery essentials so that you can create a bedroom for your baby that is beautiful as well as practical and comfortable too.
Every new mum knows the importance of getting baby to sleep through the night and ensuring the cot is comfortable and safe will go a long way! We’re bringing a contemporary edge to nursery interior style with the Houseology collection from Oeuf and the Sparrow Crib is proving to be a clear favourite! Made of beautiful birch and with a distinctly Scandinavian edge, this cot it stunningly stylish and offers three mattress heights meaning it can be used for a range of ages.
You may not have considered adding a changing table to your nursery but they can be invaluable, providing you with a comfortable spot to change your baby at the perfect height for you. The Charlie Crane collection offers the most stylish of changing solutions with a contemporary edge as well as oozing Urban cool, the additional storage of the Noga changing table means that this ticks all the nursery boxes!
03.Call of the wild
Animals are a wonderful addition to every nursery and appeal to children of all ages meaning that your design will grow with your little one! For a quirky twist on classic country house style, try the Houseology collection from Wild and Soft. From cuddly elephant heads to plush bear skin style carpets, this collection is full of fun - try creating a feature wall of animals for a gorgeous jungle style.
04.Light the way
A gorgeous soft light is perfect for creating the relaxing environment that will help to soothe your baby and allow you to find your way around the room. The Fatboy Edison Petit Lamp is perfect for nursery lighting, and, as it is rechargeable, it can be moved to wherever in the room you need it most! These super durable lamps also have three setting so that you can adjust the lighting according to the task and they can be fitted to suit your nursery scheme with the wide collection of patterned Cappie Lampshades – be bold!
As your baby grows and begins to crawl and explore, the floor will become their playground so make sure it’s soft, comfortable and stylish with the addition of a rug. As well as cushioning any stumbles, a rug is perfect for bringing some additional colour and texture into your nursery. Longer pile rugs such as sheepskins do make beautifully soft additions but casting can pose a choking hazard. Man-made materials can be wonderful choices for nurseries as they are more durable and easily cleaned – essential when there are little hands around! We adore the Pond Street Rug from Designers Guild, made of hand-tufted acrylic and with a vintage inspired pattern, this is the ultimate nursery essential.
A comfortable place for you to sit and nurse or relax with your baby is crucial and the nursery can provide a quiet space away from the hustle and bustle in which you can unwind together. Rocking or gliding chairs are popular choices as they are perfect for lulling your little one off to sleep but an armchair with an ottoman or footstool can be a comfortable and stylish alternative. We love the Ercol Originals Windsor Chairmakers Rocking Chair, available in a range of finishes this can be worked into any room scheme, we’re adding a couple of feather filled cushions to ensure optimum comfort!
