Creating A Nursery That Feels Like An At-Home Sanctuary
Have you seen baby Bambi’s idyllic nursery? If you’re unsure who we’re talking about, check out the below Instagram post by Molly Mae of her daughter's stunning nursery. The neutral paint choice, the unique name sign, and the dreamy cloud lights have inspired us to help you design a nursery that feels like your very own retreat.
During pregnancy you may feel a need to clean, tidy, organise, and create the nursery of your dreams, this is called nesting and is completely natural. There is no better feeling than relaxing in your completed nursery ahead of your baby’s arrival.
The colour of your nursery can have a huge impact on the overall appearance and feel of the room. Neutral nurseries are extremely popular, this is due to the fact they're unisex and very calming, and they can blend well with any home aesthetic. Adding in blush pink, lemon, or a soft blue always helps to make a room appear more child friendly as your baby grows.
If you're lucky enough to have a room with a large window, make the most of the natural light and bring nature in, this helps to create a beautiful and inviting space. But, ensure you buy blackout thermal curtains to keep the room warm in winter and cool in summer, as well as keeping the room dark and conducive to sleep.
During those early years, it is important to create a cosy room. Creating a space that allows your baby, toddler, and young child to feel safe as they develop. A place of dreaming, learning, and having fun. A bedroom should feel like a sanctuary no matter the age of the occupier.
Let's talk nursery furniture
Once you’ve decided on the colour scheme and theme of your nursery it’s time to think about the larger items. Cots, wardrobes, and baby changing stations. You may choose to buy a 3-piece nursery set or buy things separately. This will be dependent on whether you want to mix and match for a unique look or have all your items uniform, either can look fantastic if styled right.
It is recommended by sleep experts that babies sleep in their parent's room for the first 6 months of their lives to help reduce the risk of SIDS. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t create the nursery of your dreams where you can keep your new arrival's belongings organised. Plus, it’s much harder to find the time to design and create your baby’s nursery once they’ve arrived.
This is why we have a range of moses baskets and bedside cribs for your little one to sleep in before you transition them into their own little sanctuary.
Whilst nursing chairs are designed for practicality, they can still be stylish. Creating a focal point in your nursery where you can relax pre-due date, feed your baby to sleep, and sit and read with your little one. The above rocking chair can help you to rest your arms and back by assisting you in rocking your baby.
Now you’ve secured all the must-haves it’s time to add the equally essential decor to your nursery. This is where the room will start becoming your sanctuary, a place to feel safe and filled with love within your home.
